Vicky Pattison and Scarlett Moffatt have both spoken out against the latest series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! after comparing it to their experiences.
The two former winners have slammed the show, saying that the campmates are getting it easy in Gwrych Castle compared to their time in the Australian jungle.
Geordie Shore star Vicky, 33, triumphed Down Under in 2015, while former Gogglebox star Scarlett, 30, was crowned Queen of the Jungle the following year.
They have both separately compared their time on the show with this year and concluded that it is ‘too soft’ this time around, especially as the campmates can enjoy hot showers.
While Vicky and Scarlett had the heat of the jungle compared to the cold of the castle, they pointed to the stone cold waterfall shower as one of the main differences.
Vicky told The Sun : “I do think there’s going to be a lot of past campmates sitting round and watching this year’s I’m A Celeb and going, ‘What the f***? They have it so easy compared to us’.”
Scarlett was equally as miffed with what she was seeing on TV. She complained: “I got so angry that they got hot water.”
She added: “I know they’re in Wales so it is cold, but they should have ice cold water. That’s part of the experience. Why have they got hot water?”
Scarlett went on to say that the trials seemed easier too, and thought that Russell Watson and Ruthie Henshall having rotten tomatoes dropped on them would have been a dream for her, during her jungle experience.
Scarlett complained: “I watched one of the trials — they were having rotten tomatoes thrown at them and I was like, ‘if only we just had to deal with vegetables. That would have been the dream’.”
Scarlett recalled that she was dealing with bugs in her hair for some time after she returned to the UK from winning the show.
She said that her hairdresser got a fright at one point.
The former Gogglebox star said: “When I came out and went to get my extensions out and she started taking them out — she started screaming.
“I was like, ‘what’s the matter?’ And there was literally about four cockroaches in my hair, half mealworms.”
Vicky added that the celebs have missed out by not heading to Australia this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
She said: “I feel a bit sorry for them that they’re not in Australia. It’s so nice isn’t it?
“The sun’s shining for the best part and you get to go on the fancy flight.
“It does feel like you’re part of something big. All they did was jump in the back of an Uber.”
