Danny Baker and other ex-campmmates on 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' are frustrated by the lack of alcohol at the Palazzo Versace resort
Contestants eliminated from 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' are in revolt over the lack of alcohol at the Palazzo Versace Australia.
The showbiz stars are put up in the lavish five-star resort after leaving the Australian jungle, but they have been left fuming by the hotel bar shutting at 10pm every night.
The recently-eliminated Danny Baker said: "You come back from dinner somewhere and it's like a British B&B in the 1950s."
The celebrities - who have spent week on a rice and beans diet in the jungle - are each given their own hotel room, which is worth up to £1,500 a night, but they are not given any money for food and drink at the luxurious establishment - where a glass of wine starts at an eye-watering £9.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "A lot of the celebs want to go out and get drunk when they leave the show. But there isn't much going on at the hotel, it's all very civilised and everyone is in bed by 10pm. It's quite boring."
The lack of free booze at the hotel has reportedly led to some of the stars demanding alcohol on the ITV2 spin-off show 'Extra Camp'.
The source explained: "A lot of the celebs love going on 'Extra Camp' because there is alcohol there and it's a lot of fun."
The celebrities have already indulged in several boozy nights while in the jungle.
And Jordan Banjo - who does not drink - recently said that while he and Larry Lamb resisted the alcohol, the rest of the camp mates are "party animals".
He said: "When the alcohol arrived everyone just suddenly picked up, everyone in there is quite a party animal anyway. You'll see me at the wrap party with Larry asleep in the corner."
