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 admitted during an interview on Triple M Breakfast with MG, Jess and Pagey on Friday.
Odd confession: Following his stint on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here, Beau Ryan, 36, told Triple M Breakfast with MG, Jess and Pagey things got so strange in the jungle, he even considered eating a live possum
'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.
