‘I'm A Celebrity': Michael Buerk's Wife Reveals Worries Over Newsreader's Shocking Jungle Weight Loss Worries (PICS)

Michael Buerk may be enjoying his time in the ‘I’m A Celebrity’ jungle, however his weight loss is sparking concern.

The jungle diet of rice and beans - and the occasional proper meal when Kendra manages to win them - has left the newsreader looking noticeably slimmer.

Michael's become visibly slimmer since entering the jungle

“He’s not got a lot of spare flesh on him, but he’s in good shape. I think it’s far, far healthier to be a little bit underweight that overweight.

“I was quite horrified to realise that they only get 500 calories a day in the jungle. It’s not that he dislikes rice and beans, but the rations are quite low.”

“He’s been in real reality situations that have been very tough. I would be really, really surprised if he broke.”

At present, the celebs have been split into two teams, with only one team receiving full meals each day.

So far, Michael has been popular with his fellow campers and earlier this week he (half-jokingly) revealed that his biggest regret is not pushing Jimmy Saville off the QE2 when he had the chance.
