I’m A Celebrity viewers have expressed concern for Anne Hegerty by complaining to regulator Ofcom, it has been reported.
Fans of the show voiced concern over Anne’s treatment in the jungle after she failed to complete a gruesome Bushtucker Trial.
Some have even said that Anne, who has been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, was being exploited for entertainment, it has been claimed.
Days after arriving in camp, the Chase star was picked to face Monstrous Monoliths, which involved being locked in a tomb while bugs, slime and fish guts were thrown over her as she tried to retrieve gold stars.
It all became too much for Anne who shouted: "I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here. I can’t do it. I’m so sorry," ending her trial early.
The quiz champ called for the trial to be stopped
Ofcom have so far received two complaints about Anne’s wellbeing in the Bushtucker Trial, the regulator confirmed.
Mirror Online has contacted ITV for comment.

The quiz expert previously told how ITV bosses told her to go into the Bush Telegraph if she felt uneasy at any point during the show.
Before she entered the jungle, Anne hinted her Autism could ruffle feathers in camp.
She said: “I might get peopled out, there might just be too many people around. I might feel like going to sit in the pool until everyone has shut up a bit. On the other hand it might have advantages if I’m not as good as other people at picking up on bad atmospheres I’ll be happy drifting along.

Anne was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome
“One problem I have, that goes along with autism is being faceblind. So there’s a real possibility of getting some of the campmates mixed up, which will be very embarrassing but it’s perfectly possible I could do that. I might need to be reminded.
“I just hope I don’t do anything awful or turn out to be a complete whinger, I know everyone is going to vote for me to do trials. Bring it on.
“I’m not crazy about spiders, when it comes to eating I will have to hold my nose and go for it.”
