Gillian's Oscar winning performance

When Gillian McKeith fainted for the first time on 'I'm a celebrity get me out of here', she garnered sympathy by the bucket load. Now we're on to her third bout of swooning, and her comrades in the jungle have smelt something fishy. Some are cruelly saying that McKeith is coming over all light-headed purely in a bid to get out of doing some fairly horrendous tasks. Surely not?

According to The Daily Mail, Dom Joly reacted with incredulity after Gillian fell saying, 'I smell Baftas for that faint, I really do. Classical actors are trained for years to do that sort of fall. It was just like Miss Havisham or someone going down. It was unbelievable.' Shaun Ryder added, 'If that was real, so are my teeth... We get 12 meals and Gillian gets an Academy Award.' While Nigel Havers gave praise for the dramatic swoon saying, 'The faint was just brilliant. It's just the timing was so good.'

Gillian, we're confused. Surely your agent told you exactly what you were letting yourself in for, before signing up for the 'I'm a Celeb' experience? And surely it beats analysing the general public's stools for a living? Just a thought...
