Two stars of the British version of 'I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here' have been charged with animal cruelty after allegedly killing and cooking a rat to eat during filming. Chef Gino D'Acampo, who won the viewer-feedback contest series, and British soap actor Stuart Manning were charged after animal welfare activists lodged a complaint about a segment, which was filmed in Australia.

The maximum penalty for these charges is three years in prison.
