Sir Mo Farah CBE is one of ten celebrities to have entered the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! 2020 castle. The Olympic legend has, however, one request – any meals involving meat to be halal meat. He will, however, be taking part in all the eating Bushtucker Trials should he get voted or nominates himself as Muslim rules do not ban this.
Unlike his other campmates, Mo will have different meals to eat during his stay in the castle – similarly to Amir Khan back in 2017.
An unnamed source said: “Mo told producers a long time ago about his food preferences, so they were prepared.
“He can’t eat certain food unless it’s prepared in the correct way according to his religion.”
And Mo added: “To be honest, I’m not a big eater.”
But he does think there “will be a lot of pressure” to do well in the trials and win as many stars as he can.
“I know the eating trials involve yucky stuff but you just have to hold your nose and crack on!” he remarked.
While he may not be standing at the stove as the nominate camp cook, he did reveal other ways he can keep his fellow campmates entertained during the long, arduous days.
“I love to exercise,” he explained.
“And when I don’t train I go a bit mad! I am missing training whilst I am in the camp and my coach isn’t very happy!”
As the celebrities got to know one another, Vernon Kay was keen to find out what Mo’s treat is following a race.
“I’ve got such a sweet tooth – I crave sticky toffee pudding,” he told the TV presenter.
As for what was for dinner the first evening, the celebrities were treated to rabbit.

But some struggle to consume an animal sometimes considered as a pet.
“I can’t eat bunny!” Coronation Street’s Beverley Callard exclaimed and EastEnders Jessica Plummer added: “I had a pet rabbit when I was a kid called Boris and I just think of him.”
Victoria Derbyshire also commented: “It was a happy vibe at the end of the day because we won some food, it tasted alright, although I’m not mad on rabbit.”
As for who is taking part in the second Bushtucker trial, Mo has evaded participation.
Ant and Dec opened the lines for a public vote and two were selected to be challenged in the Viper Vault.
It was stage and screen actor Shane Ritchie and BBC Radio 1 DJ Jordan North who were chosen.
Will they be able to win all ten stars for their fellow campmates?
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! airs every night at 9pm on ITV.
