Beau Ryan admits he cornered a possum and tried to eat it while filming I'm a Celebrity…


NRL star Beau Ryan made an emotional exit from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here on Thursday night.

And shortly after his stint on the Channel Ten show – which is known for its squalid conditions and meagre meals –  the 36-year-old said he experienced such a deep sense of hunger he even considered eating a live possum.

‘When I lost the plot on the 12th or 13th day, I was that hungry. We didn’t get lunch that day,’ Ryan began in interview on Triple M Breakfast with MG, Jess and Pagey on Friday.

‘I cornered a possum down in the corner of the jungle and I remember saying to Poh, “What can you do with possum?” 

He added: ‘She was like, “Not much.” And I said, “Can we eat it?” And she said, “I can do something with it.”‘

At that stage, he said producers were quick to step in and ensure the animal was not harmed.  

‘Then over the PA they were like “Beau, step away from the possum.” And I thought, ‘I’ve gotta get out of this show,’ he said.

Beau’s bizarre confession comes after he sensationally quit I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on Thursday night’s episode.

At the time, he made shock announcement during a late-night discussion with his campmates, where he abruptly said he missed his family and needed to leave. 

‘As you know the last couple of days I’ve been struggling, and today I was a bit broken. It’s been really hard for me,’ he said.

‘The reason I did this show is to test myself, which I have. I’ve shown Australia the good, bad and ugly of me. 

‘I’ve had some moments where I regret, some moments I don’t and I’m proud of everything that’s happened.’

He added that he ‘can’t explain’ how it feels to have met such a wonderful group of people, before saying how he needed to be with his wife Kara and their daughter Remi, eight, and three-year-old son, Jesse.

‘I remember growing up and a guy two houses down from me – the dad was always away for work. I don’t want to be that dad,’ he said. 

‘My kids need their dad. My wife needs a husband, and I need to find myself back.

‘I came in here to prove myself. I can’t gain anything else from this show. My journey here is over, and I love you guys.’

He then uttered the famous words: ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.’

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues Sunday at 7.30pm on 10
