I’m A Celebrity: David Ginola accused of wanting a ‘free ride’ after ‘chickening out’ of trials

Some viewers believe 'David has barely done anything'

I’m A Celebrity star David Ginola has been slammed by fans after refusing to volunteer for a trial.

The former footballer is set to take on the show’s latest challenge – Drawbridge Over Troubled Water – tonight with Danny Miller (December 9).

However, viewers were left fuming after David “chickened out” of the trial last night.

During last night’s show, Danny and Simon Gregson took on Santa’s Grotty Grotto.

The pair went on tackle a series of disgusting challenges, including dunking their heads in fermented eggnog and rotten fruit.

They later had to squeeze the juice out of a fish eye.

Taking to Twitter, one complained: “As much as I love our David, I think it’s time he stopped chickening out of the trials! Come on, David!! I still vote for you, but step it up! #ImACeleb.”

Another said: “Have gone off David! Why isn’t he doing any trials?”

A third wrote: “Controversial but David has barely done anything. You’d think a hero sports player would want to do a trial and win some food for the camp #ImACeleb.”

A fourth shared: “David is so quick to add his two pence when the others are cooking and yet won’t put his name forward for a trial #ImACeleb.”

In addition, a fifth added: “#ImACeleb as David actually done anything since been in the castle.. .he didn’t even put himself forward for the trial. Totally wrong if he wins.”

Another raged: “#ImACeleb David the legend wants a free ride. Dont want to do any trials.”

A viewer commented: “Am I the only one wondering what David is bringing to the castle? Nowhere in sight when someone is needed for trials, is he planning on getting involved?”

A viewer tweeted: “Have to say David has been disappointing. He hasn’t put himself forward for any trials, he seems happy to sit there and let others do it all.

“A pretty face isn’t enough David #ImACeleb.”
