I’m A Celebrity: Christopher Biggins thinks Gillian McKeith should leave
Christopher Biggins has branded annoying Gillian McKeith the “worst contestant ever”.
The former ‘I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!’ winner – who was crowned king of the jungle in 2007 – thinks the ‘You Are What You Eat’ star is ruining the show with her repeated refusal to take part in Bushtucker Trials, and should quit the ITV1 show altogether.
He told The Sun newspaper: “She must be the most obnoxious, selfish, vindictive woman I’ve ever had the misfortune to watch on TV. She’s ruining the programme.
“She refuses to do anything, and if she cannot do it she should get out. She has a huge ego and probably thinks she’s being picked for the tasks because she’s so popular, the poor, deluded woman. My advice to her would be to try harder and be kinder. But there is no way back for her now.”
Meanwhile, a Bushtucker Trial was abandoned yesterday after contestants Shaun Ryder and former MP Lembit Opik were both bitten by snakes.
The pair both suffered deep puncture wounds after putting their hands into pots containing non-venomous tree pythons. The contestants were then treated by medics, before the trial – which granted Lembit immunity from last night’s elimination – was re-run with the snakes replaced by rhino beetles.
