Rat fans

The internet is awash with rumours that some people who starred in a reality TV show are in trouble because they killed and cooked a rat.

The goggle box show, apparently called ‘I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!’ is said to be set and filmed in a jungle a long long way away from England and features a group of people who think they’re famous. Anyway, during an episode of one of these shows, two of the ‘contestants’ captured a wild rat, killed it and cooked it, and now they’re due to appear in court sometime next year for charges of animal cruelty.

ITV who we’re told showed this programme have issued a statement apologising for the incident:

‘The production was unaware that killing a rat could be an offence in New South Wales and accepts that further inquiries should have been made - this was an oversight. ITV apologises for this error, and to the celebrities concerned, and will put in place procedures for next year's series to ensure that this cannot happen again’.

We'll keep you posted.
