I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! stars keep fainting

The "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" contestants have been fainting due to lack of food.

The show's medic Bob McCarron has had to enter camp numerous times over the past two weeks as "a couple" of the stars have been experiencing dizzy spells and, although they're "very hungry", they're not allowed anymore grub and have to drink electrolyte drinks instead.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, he said: "I mean there's been a couple, I can't mention it medically, but there's been a couple that have had a few dizzy spells and we've given them some electrolyte drinks and some glucose. They're very hungry, really hungry. They're very hungry at the moment, they haven't done quite so well at the trials lately.

"If you could see how much rice and beans they get per person, per day, I think you'd be quite shocked. The little bit of rice is quite tiny and the little bit of beans is quite tiny."

Vanessa White - who was booted out of the show this week - recently admitted that she was so hungry that she could "barely walk" at times - but her starvation was made worse by the fact she's allergic to beans and all she could have was rice and protein tablets to keep her going.

The Saturdays singer even contemplated quitting the show just 24 hours in because her anxiety became too much for her to handle and she actually suffered a panic attack.

The 28-year-old beauty told The Sun newspaper: "I woke up and I thought: "Where the f**k am I? I had an anxiety attack because I was with loads of strangers. I had to get a hold of myself and say: "Vanessa, you've put yourself in this situation, just do it!" "
