I'm A Celebrity 2014: Gemma Collins terrified she has Malaria

  • @TheSunNewspaper - Twitter

This season of I'm A Celebrity has had its' first major moment of drama after TOWIE star Gemma Collins freaked out after making a yellow poo by thinking it must be because she has malaria. Thankfully this was not a medical diagnosis, however, and rather it is just what Collins thought she was suffering with which means that she is fine.

Upon arrival, Gemma was unfortunate to be chosen as one of the group that were immediately sent to jungle jail after being assigned to stay in the "Celebrity Slammer". She was joined in the less than desirable digs by 'Allo 'Allo star Vicki Michelle, Corrie actor Craig Charles, Irish model Nadia Forde and motorbike champion Carl Fogarty.

While staying in "The Slammer", Collins confided in fellow contestant Vicki Michelle "I feel like I've got malaria. My poo is bright flourescent yellow. I've had the worst diarrhoea ever. I'm dying to go but if I sit in that toilet I can't bear the smell of it but I can't hold it."

Vicki did her best Agony Aunt impression and tried to reassure Collins that she in fact did not have malaria and rather was experiencing a bit of a detox. Poor Gemma did not seem to buy that though and continued to fear for her health. She also was seen proclaiming that she was "starving" which prompted Craig Charles to chastise her for using such a word when people genuinely have to go without food in developing nations.

Things went from bad to worse then for Collins after Jimmy Bullard decided to rescue Vicki from "The Slammer" after winning his Bushtucker trial. Collins was not impressed with having to stay in celebrity jail and complained "I’m ****ing ***ed off. I want to go. I’m not going to be able to do it. I just don’t want to do it. It’s too hard. If that makes me a quitter, then that’s who I am. People that murder get treated better than this, and that’s the truth. Even a murderer gets fed three times a day."
