Rebekah Vardy – who is married to footballer Jamie Vardy – is currently in the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle.

But the mum of four frustrated ITV viewers when she was ruled out of the Bushtucker trial on medical grounds, alongside Stanley Johnson.

I’m A Celebrity viewers immediately took to Twitter to question why Rebekah was ruled out of the trial, with many baffled by the decision.

Commenting, on fan wrote: “Why is Rebecca ruled out of the trial for medical reasons? I don’t know anything about her so very curious about this.”

Another commented: “When the celebs get ruled out on ‘medical ground’ and you just really need to know why asap.”

So why is Rebekah Vardy ruled out of Bushtucker trials on medical grounds? At first it was thought Rebekah has been ruled out due to an eye injury.

During a quiz on Extra Camp, Scarlett Moffatt revealed Rebekah had half her pupil removed due to an accident with a Bart Simpson toy.

However, a rep for Rebekah explained that although true, the accident happened when she was a child and has nothing to do with her not taking part.

A spokesperson told OK! Online exclusively: “I didn’t see the Extra show but she did hurt her eye as child but this doesn’t stop her doing anything, it just means she has a part of her pupil missing.”

Revealing the real reason Rebekah is ruled out on medical grounds, her rep went onto reveal she had a shellfish allergy which means Rebekah can’t take part in challenges involving fish.

Speaking to The Sun about this, Rebekah’s friend Nicola McLean said: “Becky is allergic to shellfish.

“Obviously they are conscious of campmates’ health, so they allergy test you and I know she has come back allergic to shell fish, so they won’t let her do any fish based activity.

“It’s such a shame as she would have been brilliant at it. I know swimming with fish won’t kill her but it’s all health and safety first.”

We also spoke to Dr Renee HoenderKamp who explained why professionals wouldn’t allow Rebekah to take part in challenges even if she’s not eating the fish.

She explained: “They will be worried about a couple of things, firstly, cross contamination and if the fish has been in contact with shellfish. Also, the fish may have eaten shellfish or shellfish parts as fish are scavengers and eat other fish.” 

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues week nights and Sundays on ITV.
