Fans accuse I’m a Celeb contestants of ‘bullying’ one of the campmates

This left viewers feeling uneasy

Fans have accused I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here contestants of “bullying.”

Viewers were left feeling a little uneasy after last night’s episode of the reality show saw campmates confront Iain about his inability to complete his trial due to his fear of heights.

He and Stanley had been set to tackle the challenge but had to return to camp empty-handed.

Iain got emotional as he relayed his efforts to producers following the trial which would have seen him climb onto a 100-foot high bridge.

“I got the fear and just couldn’t do it,” he said.

However, once he arrived back to camp, the others weren’t so convinced that the DJ had tried his best.

Rebekah said that the fact that Iain was struggling didn’t excuse his “bad behaviour” while Amir stated that he thought he should have just “given it a go.”

The radio presenter was also accused of game-playing by a selection of the campmates on last night’s show due to the fact that he had received immunity from the first vote-off even though he was apparently “itching to go.”

Rebekah said:

“Look at you, you secret game planner. Buzzing that you are not going out tomorrow, you’ve got a game plan you have.

“Watch this one, not only does he nick strawberries but he’s also got a game plan.”

Jamie agreed with Rebekah and said:

“Yeah, he was itching to go yesterday and now he’s the happiest man on earth. Come on, don’t tell me you are not playing a game, I was on to you three days ago.”

Following Iain’s treatment in the camp, viewers took to Twitter to share their sympathy for the DJ and accuse the other campmates of “bullying.”

However, others weren’t so convinced that Iain was the one being targeted.

Seeing as up until now, the camp has been fairly harmonious, this split will certainly lead to some interesting developments over the next few nights.
