A source told The Sun that the footage will leave viewers ‘shocked’, they added: ‘Somehow it [the pig] managed to get all worked up, and in a tragic accident it hung itself.

‘Pete particularly was devastated.’  

A PETA spokesman told MailOnline: ‘Bear Grylls has a sordid history of torturing living beings to boost ratings. It’s time to move beyond this worn-out trope of showing crude dominance over nature – and we urge producers to scrap the use of animals in these stupid TV stunts and replace them with challenges that don’t involve bullying or purposely putting animals in harm’s way.’

MailOnline has contacted Channel 4 for comment. 

Pete is an avid animal lover and last year he helped rescue 170 dogs from squalid conditions and certain death during his trip to South Korea, where he campaigned to end canine farms.

The TOWIE star revealed that he’s even given up meat since his heroic mission and hopes to return to the East Asian country, as well as Romania.

On the latest instalment of Celebrity Island, it showed the contestants discussing what they would do if they came across a pig and whether they would kill it. 

Pete was left outraged at the thought of slaughtering the animal, as he insisted that he ‘didn’t need to take another life to survive’.

Yet fans were quick to call out the pescatarian as they questioned what the difference was between killing a fish and a pig.  

One person said: ‘LOL Pete Wicks is “heartbroken” and in tears over a pig being killed yet has no issues with killing fish. Pescetarians that say they don’t eat meat because they’re against animals being killed make zero sense #CelebrityIsland.’

A different fan put: ‘@P_Wicks01 ‘you don’t have to take a life to survive’ unless it is a fish, because s*d them? #CelebrityIsland #fishlivesmatter.’

Another show watcher commented: ‘@P_Wicks01 spinning me out on Celebrity Island.. doesn’t agree with killing animals but is a pescatarian and kills fish to eat…. which are animals?!’

While a different viewer added: ‘@P_Wicks01 going on about not killing an animal but happily eats fish?! Hypocracy at its finest. #celebrityisland.’

Yet other loyal fans were quick to rush to Pete and fellow pescatarians’ defence. 

One person said: ‘People seriously need to learn the definition of pescetarianism and the rationale behind choosing to eat fish but not other mammels. Givin Pete s**t for choosing to not kill a pig or caiman, idiots. so glad @P_Wicks01 has stuck to his guns on #celebrityisland.’ 

While a different account added: ‘#CelebrityIsland catch up: my guy @P_Wicks01 fully smashing it, staying true to himself don’t think I could kill and eat a living breathing animal for the sake of a TV show.’

Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls continues on Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4.
