I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! champions Scarlett Moffatt and Vicky Pattison think this year's stars have got off lightly following the show's relocation from Australia to Wales.

The pair reckon the 12 stars competing in the 2020 series "have it easy" as they don't have to shower in cold water and have fewer creepy crawlies to contend with.

Pattison, who won in 2015, told The Sun: “I do think there’s going to be a lot of past campmates sitting round and watching this year’s I’m A Celeb and going, ‘What the f***? They have it so easy compared to us’.”

Due to the change in climate, instead of washing themselves under a waterfall out in the open the campmates are showering indoors in a rusty tub that comes complete with a curtain. To use it, one of their fellow contestants must pump the water for them.

The Mirror has reported that contestants are required to stoke a boiler to ensure the water is warm.

Moffatt said: “I got so angry that they got hot water. I know they’re in Wales so it is cold, but they should have ice-cold water. That’s part of the experience. Why have they got hot water?”

The former Gogglebox star, who was crowned Queen of the Jungle in 2016, said the trials were more difficult back then as she discussed late entrants Ruthie Henshall and Russell Watson's first trial, which saw them pelted with rotten food and insects.

“I watched one of the trials – they were having rotten tomatoes thrown at them,” she said, “and I was like, ‘if only we just had to deal with vegetables. That would have been the dream.’

Moffat said she had insects in her hair for weeks after the show.

She said: “When I came out and went to get my extensions out and she started taking them out ­– she started screaming. I was like, ‘what’s the matter?’ And there was literally about four cockroaches in my hair, half mealworms."

While they may not be in the jungle, the cast of 2020 have had to deal with the same critters as usual. Tasks have seen bugs and offal poured on the stars and they've been locked up in close proximity to snakes and rats.

Despite her complaints, Pattison did opine that this year's famous faces had drawn the short straw as they don't have the warm Australian weather.
