I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! fans have applauded Poh Ling Yeow after she lashed out at fellow contestants Beau Ryan and Joey Essex for their constant complaining during Tuesday night’s episode.

The former MasterChef star said she wanted to “kill” her co-stars for devouring the camp’s leftover porridge after dinner, despite others having barely eaten anything.

Poh simply couldn’t hold in her frustration with the pair any longer after they had spent the last few days whining over the lack of food.

“I don't like seeing people be made to feel uncomfortable,” she said during her confessional.

“And clearly Red Team had so little tonight, and there were still a couple of people - we know who they are - on the Blue Team, they were onto the porridge, and this is getting a bit tedious.”

Comedian Cal Wilson also expressed her annoyance when detailing the situation, telling the cameras: “They were hungry again after ten seconds of not eating.”


In the camp, Beau and Joey were shown eating their extra food and selfishly remarking that it “tastes better than the morning”.

“That was lovely, that was really nice,” Joey said after finishing.

Poh, who was sitting opposite the duo, then muttered, “God, I want to kill people”, followed by Cal who said, “Me too”.

During the episode, a number of viewers took to social media to agree with Poh and share their thoughts on Joey and Beau’s actions.

“I agree with Poh, they’re getting annoying now,” one person tweeted, while another added, “Yes Poh, they have been carrying on like pork chops! It’s irritating”.

“Joey and Beau really are behaving like spoilt brats and it's both embarrassing and disgraceful. They're grown men, one with kids. They really need to do better,” a third wrote.

“Joey and Beau are doing my head in - can they go,” someone else shared, followed by a different user who said, “I wonder if Beau and Joey are aware that Australia now knows them for their annoying food-related issues!”.

Others remarked that it was odd to see Beau, who is competing on the show as part of his contract with Channel Ten, be portrayed in a negative light when he works for the network.

“Not sure why Channel 10 would give their man Beau a bad edit. His behaviour regarding food is a turn off. It's not funny or endearing,” one viewer said.

“He’s not coming across very well at all and that could have been avoided with editing given he’s the only contestant on a network contract,” another tweeted, with someone else writing, “I used to love Beau Ryan but the way he is acting about food is disgusting.”
