I'm A Celebrity! investigation launched by Ofcom

Ofcom has launched an investigation into I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! after the seven-year-old daughter of Eastenders star Charlie Brooks was involved in a stunt on the show.

Brooks, who was later crowned Queen of the Jungle, and darts player Eric Bristow were tasked with choosing between doors that either had a treat behind them or a "game over" sign.

What Brooks didn't know is that her daughter Kiki - who she had not seen for 18 days - was standing a few feet away from her behind one of the doors.

When the door with the "game over" sign was picked, Brooks returned to camp without being reunited.

Television regulator Ofcom received 66 complaints, while Brooks later called it "heartbreaking".

She said, "I signed up for this show, but Kiki didn't. I didn't want her to be so upset. I had no idea this was happening. It was my lowest point".

Ofcom will investigate whether ITV took due care to protect Kiki's welfare and whether the potential for offence caused by scenes of Brooks appearing distressed following the stunt were justified by the context.

A spokesman for I'm a Celebrity said at the time that a senior producer had seen "Kiki afterwards and she was fine", adding, "Kiki and her grandma come to the jungle every day with the other friends and family, so the experience wasn't as out of the ordinary as it might look".
