UK I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Highly Likely To Move Production To Samoa

The producers of the hit UK show I’m A Celebrity get me out of here must be thinking of moving the production from the Far North Coast, New South Wales to Samoa.

The show had to go to court to face animal cruelty charges related to the killing of a rat on the show. They were found guilty.

news.com.au reports contestants Gino D’A Campo and Stuart Manning (who must be celebs in Britain because I have never heard of them, former reality TV stars perhaps?) killed a rat and ate it on the series. The issue was that it took 90 seconds for the rat to die after it had been stabbed.

Other readers may have a differing opinion, but this is ridiculous that it was clogging up the court system, and also takes away the attention from other more serious animal cruelty offences.

Anyway luck last season’s Survivor series, was filmed in Samoa rather than Australia as winner Natalie also killed a rat and ate it. She managed to avoid RSVP or PETA intervention.

I think this series will be shown on UK TV in Australia from April.

FFS how many thousands rats die each day in NSW in the most excruiating pain from being legally poisoned by Ratsak and the like? And it takes a lot longer to die than the 1.5 minutes the rodent unlucky enough to scurry on to I’m a Celebrity set took.

Them cane toads massing at the Qld border to invade our fair state must be laughing at this stupid court decision.

What a waste of resources.

Was the meal ratatouille by chance? I know. Groan.
