I'M A Celebrity has been slammed for cruelty after Owen Warner continues to fight his hunger.
The soap star – who plays Romeo Nightingale in Hollyoaks – has made it clear that he's really been struggling with the lack of food in camp.
The famous faces are given enough food, but for duration of their time in the jungle they have a 700-calorie diet which consists of rice and beans.
During last night's episode, Matt Tindall, Owen and Jill Scott took part in the Scareground Trial and Tombola in a bid to win more balls for campmates.
In a previous episode, each celebrity was given a colour ball which represented them and whoever had the most amount of balls was in with a chance of eating a BBQ on the beach.
Although Owen had the most amount of balls, it was MP Matt Hancock, Corrie's Sue Cleaver and Jill who won the meal after being picked out of a hat.

Another wrote: "I felt so sorry for Owen, he's starving, everyone was trying to feed him, and then he has to go and so 2 trials in a day!! Poor sweet guy."

"How my heart is broken for Owen. The poor boy deserved nothing more than that barbeque. Life is so unfair. #ImACeleb," a fourth added.
Earlier this week fans were left hugely concerned for one contestant after the camp scored a dismal single star in the latest challenge.
This meant it was just the sole meal for the I'm A Celeb campmates and viewers have been worried for their wellbeing.
They seemed specifically concerned about Owen, with one viewer pleading: "someone get Owen some food my guy is starving #ImACeleb."
Fans flooded Twitter with concern, with one posting: "ONE STAR NO poor owen is gonna be starving."
