I'M A Celebrity is back for another year, with 12 campmates all hoping to last distance.
But fans often wonder if there any vegetarians or vegans in the jungle and if they are exempt from any of the trials.
What do vegetarians eat on I'm A Celebrity?
There will always be a vegetarian and vegan option available for the I'm A Celebrity campmates with these specific dietary requirements.
Vegetarians do not eat any animal flesh – this includes cow, pig, chicken and fish.
Vegans go further by not eating anything derived from an animal, including eggs, milk and butter.
Stars on the series are usually promised 700 calories through basic rations of rice and beans, which are vegetarian.

What vegetarians have taken part before?
Vegans and vegetarians have taken part in the show since series one.
In 2017, stand-up comedian Shappi Khorsandi revealed that she was vegan shortly before joining the Jungle.
However, she ditched her plant-based diet for the show. Eventually, she did confess to falling ill, where she requested vegan-only food for the remainder of the show.
At the time, Shappi said: “I had meat, and I was really, really physically sick, five times in one hour. It was horrible.”
In the 2018 series X Factor’s Fleur East and Coronation Street’s Sair Khan were both vegans, as well as James McVey.
In 2020 Beverley Callard and Mo Farah opted for a vegan diet.
For the 2022 Boy George requires a vegan option for his meals.
What will Boy George eat on I'm A Celebrity?

He will receive a portion of tofu if the camp win the appropriate stars on the Bushtucker Trials.
