There's more beasts outside the jungle

by jane graham

The knives are out for Rebecca Adlington, with even Nice Guy Philip Schofield saying she shouldn't have gone into the jungle if she has claustrophobia.

Online critics have blasted her for having moments of insecurity ('stroppy', 'moany') and being ruled out of some trials.

I love I'm a Celeb, but every year it inspires a particularly petty kind of bullying against people who have committed no sin other than being vulnerable. It's so popular the audience appears to believe it owns the contestants and is entitled to dictate the exact nature of their participation.

I hope Becci flicks them all the V when she saunters out of there, head held high.
