The new host of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Robert Irwin has revealed a major change that’s coming to the popular reality TV show.

During an appearance on The Project, Irwin was asked how he’d feel about watching contestants eat ‘zebra balls’ on the show.

The wildlife enthusiast clarified that no wildlife would be used in eating challenges on the show from now on.

“Can I say something very interesting? This is one of the reasons why I was so excited to join the show,” he told the hosts.

I’m A Celebrity have vowed to cease all use of wildlife in the show. The entire consumptive use of wildlife is done.

“They’ve got all bags to eat!” Julia interrupted.

“So, it’s a very important thing for me. And I’m very proud of what we’re doing together to really hit home and lead by example with wildlife conservation in this new season of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here,” Irwin added.
