Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls contestant Pete Wicks has divided fans this evening (September 23) after he questioned the idea of hunting animals.

An open pescatarian, Pete was found complaining about his fellow contestants during the show after they discussed killing a pig to survive if they were to come across one. Stating that he "didn't need to take another life to survive," fans immediately called him out for contradicting himself.

Some weren't on board with Pete's pescetarianism, and questioned why he drew the line at fish and didn't avoid eating animals entirely. Twitter was on fire with reactions:







Others, however, supported Pete's criticism of killing animals, particularly on a TV programme:





Elsewhere on the show, Pete feared for his life after a terrifying encounter with a "killer shark". It got caught in the net whilst he went fishing with fellow contestant James Cracknell.

"I could not get this shark off my hand for love or money; we ended up wrestling for a bit," he told The Sun. "Then after about three or four minutes of being in the water and going up and down I started getting a bit panicky because I lost the feeling in my finger, I thought my finger had gone."

Thankfully Cracknell came to Pete's aid, although he says that he has since lost feeling in his finger.
