Fans of ITV’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Have expressed their concern for contestant Arlene Phillips after discovering her age.

Strictly Come Dancing star choreographer Arlene is one of the celebrities taking part in the gruelling trials and receiving meagre rations in this year’s line up alongside other celebs such as Richard Madeley, Naughty Boy and Frankie Bridge.

Fans were shocked to discover that Arlene is in fact 78, making her the oldest contestant to ever head into the I’m A Celeb camp.

Viewers of the show took to Twitter to share their concerns over Dame Arlene’s health after she joined teammates in The Clink for a night of no food and sleeping on the floor last night.

Watching the second episode of I’m A Celeb tonight, fans worried whether Arlene would damage her health as a result of the camp’s conditions.

One viewer expressed their concern that the I’m A Celeb diet wouldn’t do Arlene any favours, writing: “I fear for Arlene. 78 and sleeping on a cold floor eating rice and beans. She looks her age today poor lass.”

A second fan of the show agreed, stating that were it not a TV show she would be calling social services: “Honestly I can’t cope with Arlene Philips being in I’m a celeb…..she’s 78, it’s freezing cold, she’s sleeping on a bed on the floor, and she has no food.

“If this was any other 78 year old I’d be calling social services #ImACeleb”

A third I’m A Celeb viewer echoed the concern of other fans and said they hoped the show’s producers were looking after her: “Arlene does not look well at all in @imacelebrity after just one day.

“Hope they are looking after her. Why is a 78 year old camping on cold floors in November anyway?”
