Beverley took on the trial with Vernon Kay and Jordan North

I’m A Celebrity star Beverley Callard divided viewers when she took on the eating Bushtucker trial last night.

The Coronation Street actress, 63, faced the vile trial alongside fellow campmates Vernon Kay and Jordan North on Tuesday’s show.

However, viewers weren’t happy that Beverley had fermented plums and fermented tofu while her co-stars tried to chow down sheep’s brains, goat’s eyes and a cow’s tongue.

Poor Vernon had to face a deer’s testicle while Jordan struggled to get a bowl of fermented catfish soup down.

Beverley also faced other disgusting foods, including vomit fruit.

As she faced fermented plums, Beverley said: “[They taste] absolutely disgusting,” as she gagged.

After she finished eating them, host Dec Donnelly said: “You’re a machine, Beverley!”

Anyone else think Beverley is getting off lightly?

Beverley later revealed she’s been a vegan since March.

Dec laughed: “Was it worth it Bev?” as she shook her head and gagged again.

“There are plenty of disgusting vegan-friendly options out there, such as vomit fruit.”

Another wrote: “Don’t know why everyone is saying Beverley has an easy way out of the trial being vegan…

“It means she’ll have to eat the vomit fruit.”

One praised the trio, writing: “They all did amazing but those dishes absolutely disgusting.

“Vernon was incredible, Jordan did brilliant and Beverley amazing. I couldn’t do that.”
