Rebecca Adlington's fiance Harry Needs insists she isn't pregnant and is in "great shape" after fans started questioning why she kept being given exemption from 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' trials
Rebecca Adlington's fiance insists she is in "good shape".
The 24-year-old swimmer has sparked speculation she is pregnant with her emotional behaviour and having being ruled out of three 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' trials on unspecified medical grounds but Harry Needs - who arrived in Australia yesterday (26.11.13) to support his partner - insists the rumours aren't true.
He said: "I can honestly say hand on heart, she's not. Unless something went on in the jungle without me?"
"Becky's in good shape."
Harry's denial came after fans took to Twitter to question why the Olympian keeps being excused from trials.
One user, Benjamin James, wrote: "An Olympic Gold Medallist, excluded from trials? One word: PREGNANT."
Ailish Shaw posted: "It's so obvious Rebecca Adlington is pregnant. She's an Olympian but she's ruled out of everything."
And an insider admitted there has been a lot of speculation about the sportswoman within the show.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "The gossip mill has been working overtime. Other stars have been exempt at various points as well - but their complaints are all out in the open."
Rebecca had to undergo a thorough medical examination before being allowed on the show, and it has also been speculated her exemption from the trials has been due to her suffering from claustrophobia.
An ITV spokesperson insisted they would not let anyone compete if they were pregnant and refused to comment on any medical issues.
