Charlene White’s family have broken their silence over her decision not to sleep in the RV in the jungle.
The I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! star, 42, has faced backlash this week from viewers, after refusing not to sleep beside Matt Hancock in the RV when she was selected as deputy camp leader to the MP.
Charlene has since been sleeping in camp, which doesn’t have enough beds for everyone, forcing contestants Seann Walsh and Owen Warner to take turns sleeping in a hammock or on the ground.
Although Charlene insisted her refusal to sleep in the RV came after she discovered a spider in the trailer, viewers have been left convinced it’s because the newsreader does not want to sleep next to disgraced MP Matt.
Charlene’s family voiced their opinion on the sleeping saga as they responded to an unhappy fan on Twitter, who told the ITV star she should return to the RV and sleep there.
They wrote: “Hammock looks way more comfy tbf. Char should be slumming it, not laying in comfort."
Charlene’s family then jokingly jabbed at her, adding: "Sorry Char but either you sleep in the RV or Hammock or we vote for you to do a trial.”
Comedian Seann, 36, offered to sleep in the hammock following Charlene’s refusal to go in the RV, however eventually found it uncomfortable and ended up with a bad back.
Hollyoaks star Owen Warner put himself forward to replace Seann in the hammock as Charlene remained in camp, and later asked her when no one was around: "Is there no way you’d be comfortable sleeping in the RV?”
Charlene then offered to try sleeping in the hammock again.
Viewers have branded the news host “selfish” following her refusal to sleep in the RV, as they’ve lashed out at the star on social media.
The unhappy response shared online from fans came as Ant and Dec declared on Instagram Live this week that they would talk to the producers about Charlene’s “rule-breaking”.
Though the presenting duo appeared to disagree with Charlene’s decision, they had a change of heart after Wednesday’s episode, as they told viewers the newsreader is being let off the hook.
The co-hosts tweeted to fans: “The rules said that only the leader and deputy are allowed to stay in the RV, it didn’t state they HAD to… #ImACeleb."
