Mo Farah to be given special halal meals while in I’m A Celebrity castle

November 15, 2020

Sir Mo Farah will have different dining options to his campmates during his stay on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The Olympian, 37, will be given special halal food in order to adhere to his religious beliefs while his campmates will dine on the jungle menu.

Despite being given halal options, Sir Mo will participate in the infamous bug-eating challenges as Muslim rules do not restrict this.

This will follow the same move put in place for boxer Amir Khan during his stint back in 2017.

"Mo told producers a long time ago about his food preferences, so they were prepared," a source told The Sun.

The insider went on to say: "He can't eat certain food unless it's prepared in the correct way according to his religion."

Sir Mo who became Britain's most celebrated Olympian previously told the publication that he's "not a big eater".

This year, while the jungle food shop may have swapped from kangaroo anus, it is not yet clear what local delicacies the campmates will be treated to.

During the launch episode, campmates have forced to abseil the Grade I listed 19th-century castle where it is being filmed.

The stars taking part including Neon Jungle singer Jessica Plummer were told to "expect the unexpected" as they faced the gruelling task of passing stars through cages while being covered in cockroaches and crickets.

I'm A Celeb was forced to spike plans to film in the usual camp on Australia's Gold Coast amidst the coronavirus pandemic which continues to sweep across the planet.

Instead, they headed to Gwrych Castle in Abergele, North Wales – a location said to be haunted by Winifred Cochrane, Countess of Dundonald.

Despite this, exotic animals are still believed to be a key part in the infamous Bushtucker Trials, with speculation suggesting "ferret legging" may play a part, seeing animals trapped inside contestants trousers.

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns to ITV on Monday.
