​Is It Bad For 'I'm A Celebrity' Contestants To Eat Kangaroo Balls?

One of our favourite things about I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! is, without doubt, watching celebs shit themselves as they work their way through mouthfuls of insects and dodgy animal parts.

It'd be bad enough having to touch them, let alone actually put them in your mouth, crunch and swallow. No, ta.

But what about the actual nutritional side of spiders, crickets and other insects? Surely all these testicles and bugs can't be good for the z-listers when they chow down in tonight's Bushtucker Trial?

"These are a high protein, low fat choice that can be rich in vitamin C for immunity and essentially fatty acids to help with brain health," Rick Hay, Nutritional Director at Healthista, tells LADbible.

"They can also contain B vitamins to help with the nervous system. Some believe they will be the protein source of the future."

Believe it or not, Rick also says there could be some benefits to eating testicles, or other bollock-related grub from an animal's nether regions.

"Testicles do contain some protein and a few vitamins and minerals like zinc, magnesium and iron," Rick explains.

"They are also low in fat and carbs and are low calorie. Some believe they raise testosterone levels but I've yet to see definitive research."

The anus, meanwhile, is low fat but also has "decent protein levels, and contains iron and potassium".

So far, so good. But Rick warns there are still risks involved to eating animal danglies, saying they need to be thoroughly cooked to eliminate any possible bacterial or worm infestation.

"Of course the anus must be cleaned well to decrease any risk of fecal contamination," he says.

At the very least, we'd hope.


Rick adds: "I'm a vegetarian, and after looking into this I think I will stick to my plant-based protein diet!"

We're with you, pal - but let's see what the celebs make of it tonight. Fingers crossed everything's had a good wipe.
