They’re Celebrities ... and They Killed a Rat

Rat eaters.

Two contestants from the British version of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! are facing charges of animal cruelty after killing, cooking, and eating a rat on the show. Chef Gino D'Acampo and actor Stuart Manning were in "exile" (whatever that means) when they decided they needed some meat to add to their rice and beans. A rat became that meat, and now Australia's animal-rights watchdog is raging mad. The two contestants aren't expected to face jail time, but they may be forced to endure an even worse punishment — watching their own show.
