The gold medal winning athlete was clearly distraught when she took part in a trial that saw her surrounded by snakes – but some cruel viewers targeted her following her star-winning performance
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Kadeena Cox was the target of cruel online trolls who questioned the authenticity of her tears during a trial.
Viewers watched Kadeena as she confronted a trial called Bed Chamber Of Thrills – which saw her being surrounded by snakes.
The trial proved too much for the gold medalist who broke down in tears and begged show hosts Ant and Dec to “get me out of here”.
The sports star was partnered with Arlene Phillips for the trial with the two trying to secure stars – with Kadeena lying down while surrounded by reptiles.
Viewers saw the athlete panic and say: “Arlene I really need to get out of here, please, please, please, please” as she struggled to secure a star and the snakes gathered closer to her.
And at one point Kadeena snapped: “Oh come on please Arlene find it, I can’t stay in here!”
She eventually couldn’t hold back her tears any more and called out the infamous line “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here” in order to be removed from the trial – but she did secure 10 stars.
Some viewers showed a lack of empathy, however, as the clearly distressed Kadeena broke down while enduring the trial.
Taking to Twitter, a number of uncaring viewers accused Kadeena of faking her emotions.
One wrote online: “Oh ffs Kadeena, you volunteered for it. Stop crying.”
Another posted: “Cor blimey she needs an Oscar for that fakecrying” – while a further viewer cruelly remarked: “Why she crying, sounded fake.”
Meanwhile on Wednesday night’s show, viewers expressed confusion when Naughty Boy took part in a trial where Ant and Dec would count down from either 60 or 30 seconds and he had to endure having creepy crawlies and other critters on his body.
Taking to Twitter to complain, one viewer wrote: “wait but this trial makes no sense.. he only has to endure it for 30 seconds but they stay on his body the entire time so it doesn’t even matter wth #ImACeleb.”
Another agreed, tweeting: “This trial makes no sense. They’re counting the time naughty boy has to endure the insects but he still has to endure them AFTER the time is up??? Eh?? #ImACeleb.”
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on ITV every night at 9pm.
