Her veganism has meant she has also swerved arguably the worse dishes in the notorious eating trial, and on Monday night Bev confused fans again as she appeared to enjoy a scotch egg.
Confused: Beverley Callard’s veganism caused ruffles on social media again during Monday night’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here
After Jordan and Ruthie chose the treat over chocolate mini eggs in the day’s Castle Coin Challenge, the whole camp were seen tucking into the treat.
A typical Scotch egg usually consists of a hard boiled egg wrapped in pork sausage meat and then dipped in bread crumbs.
Viewers took to Twitter in droves to question if vegan Beverley should be allowed the snack, with one tweeting: ‘Is Bev only vegan when it comes to the trials? I see her eating that scotch egg.’
‘Bev, the scotch egg, eel eating, squirrel eating, meat eating, vegan’ teased another.

Baffled: Viewers took to Twitter in droves to question if vegan Beverley should be allowed the snack, with one tweeting: ‘Is Bev only vegan when it comes to the trials?’
Others used memes of the Gavin & Stacey character Pam who famously pretends in the show to be a vegetarian only to get caught out.
I’m A Celeb hosts Ant and Dec were quick to clear up the confusion though. Using the TV duo’s joint Twitter account, Dec replied to one tweet on Monday by pointing out ‘she got a vegan one tbf. D’
Bev has sparked questions from fans about her sudden change to a vegan diet since entering the I’m A Celeb castle.
And even the actress’ on-screen son Simon Gregson has admitted he’s not convinced by her sudden change to a healthy lifestyle.

Speaking on Friday’s
However, after viewers accused Beverley of ‘cheating’ her way through an I’m A Celebrity trial by being exempt from eating animal parts, the actor admitted he’s not wholly convinced.
Above board: Ant and Dec were quick to clear up the confusion though. Using the TV duo’s joint Twitter account, Dec replied to one tweet by pointing out ‘she got a vegan one’
He said: ‘Rebecca her daughter is vegan and I’m sure Bev has done it for all the right reasons, health and to save the planet, if you believe that, I’m a mango! I’m pretty sure it’s because she doesn’t have to put a willy in her mouth.
‘She’s doing brilliantly and the great thing about Bev is that she’s a brilliant storyteller, she’s a massive team player, and even though in the deepest parts of her soul ”there’s no way I wanna do that!” but she will!’
‘She’ll go the distance.’
Really? Bev’s on-screen son Simon Gregson has admitted he’s not convinced by her sudden decision to go vegan ahead of her stint on the show
Odd: Beverley (pictured on I’m A Celebrity) was exempt from certain parts of the so-called ‘eating trial’ due to being vegan, instead being served fermented vegetables
Funny: Speaking on Friday’s Loose Women, Simon said: ‘I’m sure Bev has done it for all the right reasons, health and to save the planet, if you believe that I’m a mango!’
Changes: Simon told the panel that it’s likely Beverley decided to go vegan given her daughter follows the same diet
Last week Beverley took part in the first ‘eating trial’ of the series, Frights of the Round Table, with Vernon Kay and Jordan North, but was served with plates of fermented dishes and a nasty ‘vomit fruit’ due to her vegan diet.
Ahead of the trial, hosts Ant and Dec announced that Beverley would be served specific dishes due to her vegan diet – fermented plums, fermented tofu, and a cheesefruit, which is known to many as ‘vomit fruit.’
Despite helping win a full house in the trial, many fans question whether it was fair Beverley take part in the challenge given her vegan preferences.
One wrote: ‘What vegan food can be that bad? Surely being vegan for this is cheating?’
Many viewers have since noted that despite her exemptions in the trial, she was still able to tuck into bread and butter won during the Castle Coin challenge, as well as the meat and fish dinners delivered to the camp every evening.
I’m A Celebrity continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
