ITV bosses are becoming increasingly worried about the TV nutritionist, after her erratic behaviour and bizarre claims
Just when we thought we’d heard it all in the I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here jungle, erratic contestant Gillian McKeith has claimed she’s pregnant, forcing ITV bosses to fear for her state of mind.
After facing eight trails in a row and fainting twice, its thought the pressure is becoming too much for the TV nutritionist, whose bizarre behaviour – including claiming she has rabies, and that she’s been hearing voices - is worring other contestants.
‘Gillian's level of ailments have increased and she has been hearing voices. She is very weak and frail at the moment,’ fellow jungle star Lembit Opik revealed.
Now the 51-year-old’s erratic behavior has taken a turn for the worse, after she's reportedly been claiming she's pregnant.
Gillian lashed out after being sent to jungle jail for cheating in the Kangaroo Court task, shouting that she was pregnant, in footage show bosses deemed too unsettling to watch.
Its thought she made up the claims to get out of jail, but it seems her episode still made hard viewing.
‘When Gillian went back to the jungle jail she went nuts. It was quite scary,’ one insider told the Sun.
Gillian caused yet another uproar during yesterday’s show, after reducing fellow contestant Stacey Solomon to tears, after she suggested she quit the show.
Speaking to the star through the bars of the jungle jail, Stacey said: ‘You are on telly and you are fainting, you’re fainting in front of your children, no amount of money is worth that,’
'If you’re so afraid and have so many phobias and are ill over it, you should go. There’s nothing keeping you here. You said it’s unbearable.'
But Gillian hit back at her suggestion, retorting: 'I have a television career and if I walk out on my contract I will not work in television again. That’s the way it works.'
