Former footballer has been berated online for telling Iain he shouldn’t take part in the trial because he wasn’t successful in previous challenges
I’M A Celebrity fans were seething tonight after Dennis Wise told Iain Lee he should do the Bushtucker Trial because he wasn’t good enough.
The former footballer’s comments came after Iain made it known he was keen to tackle tonight’s Tutankha-Doom.
As Iain told his campmates about the trial, he added: “I know I’d like to have a go on one and I know you’d like to have a go on one,” gesturing to Jamie Lomas.
As Jamie told the camp he would do it, Stanley Johnson said there should be a discussion before choosing who did it.
As Iain put his case forward, Dennis jumped in and told him: “My only problem and I’ll be honest with you Iain, is that you’ve said ‘Get Me Out Of Here’ twice and what I don’t want to do is we have no dinner and so….”
Looking upset, Iain replied: “Ok but I also got 11 stars on one.”
Dennis didn’t back down and said: “I get that but you’ve also said ‘Get Me Out Of Here’ twice out of the three you’ve done you failed…”
Iain retorted: “No, I failed one of them, the other was a challenge.”
Not appearing to want to admit he was wrong, Dennis then appeared to suggest that Iain was likely to fail the trial.
Dennis quipped: “If you come back with nothing everyone will be upset.”
Iain replied: “I get it, you don’t want me to do it, I withdraw my offer, does that mean I can do no Trials for the rest of the run then?
“Is that what you’re saying, because that feels a little bit unfair.”
Dennis hit back and said: “Well Iain, the problem is you’ve gone a couple of times and you’ve come back with nothing, so that causes me a slight issue.”
Iain appeared to get agitated and said: “Well I won’t do any more Trials then, but it just feels a bit.”
Although Dennis tried to turn the tables back on him and told him to “not be like that,” fans of the show were furious at how the sportsman had put him down.
One tweeted:“Why is he being so cruel to Iain?”
A second said: “So the bullying begins again…”
A third commented: “Dennis you are a bully go home you small man.”
As their row continued, Dennis again accused Iain of playing games.
He warned him:“Don’t try and make me look bad.”
Iain replied: “I’m not playing any games.”
The pair then shook hands and apologised but viewers were still baying to Dennis’ blood.
Yesterday Rebekah Vardy was forced to deny she had bullied Iain and said her comments about him “playing games” were taken out of context.
