I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers have been left feeling sorry for comic Iain Lee, accusing the other campmates of ganging up on the 44-year-old star.
Speaking by the fire, Rebekah told Iain: “Look at you, you secret game player… Buzzing that you are not going out tomorrow, you’ve got a game plan.”
Jamie added: “You are definitely playing a game”, as Rebekah continued: “Watch this one, not only does he nick strawberries but he’s also got a game plan.”
Iain previously faced backlash from his fellow contestants after he and boxer Amir Khan ate all of the camp’s strawberries and cream, which Amir let Iain take most of the rap for even though it was initially his idea.
Amir has also criticised Iain for not overcoming his fears in the jungle, despite he being the first celebrity of the series to back out of a Bushtucker Trial by saying “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!”.
Speaking to Shappi Khorsandi about his treatment, Iain confided: “I am in a really s***** mood, I can’t wait to get out of here, I cannot wait to get out of this country and leave all this bull**** behind.
“They are all blowing smoke up Amir’s ass and he’s p***ing himself laughing about it and I’m telling him that they all think it was me. I hate it.”
In the Bush Telegraph, Shappi said: “He feels scapegoated; the boys have a very tight gang here and they didn’t make Iain one of the lads.”
Taking to social media, fans defended Iain, with many commenting that they were “uncomfortable” watching the star be “ganged up on”:
Iain Lee needs to win to prove to the campmates that isolating and bullying a man IS NOT OK and IS NOT TOLERATED #ImACeleb
