Celebrity Winner Faces Rat Killing Charge 9:28am UK, Sunday December 06, 2009 Andy Jack, Sky News Online I'm a Celebrity... winner Gino D'Acampo and fellow contestant Stuart Manning face criminal charges for animal cruelty after allegedly cooking and eating a rat on the programme. The pair were part of a group in "exile" for part of the series, which meant meagre rations of rice and beans. A lack of meat prompted the contestants to apparently catch, kill and eat a rat in a risotto. D'Acampo, a 33-year-old chef, said in the show's video diary room the Bush Telegraph: "I saw one of these rats running around. I got a knife, I got its throat, I picked it up."
