A third viewer added: “Oh Amir would you shut up already!! Iain’s afraid of water and heights…you’re afraid of snakes, spiders, ants, cockroaches, shadows, having a personality….etc etc JUST SHUT UP YOU T***!! #ImACelebrity (sic)”
Amir’s criticism of Iain came after Dennis Wise won a Bushtucker Trial that he had previously struggled with.
Speaking about Iain’s unsuccessful attempt at the trial, Dennis added: “I get why Iain struggled because of the size of him.
“I know that he said it was three metres but I’m not sure it was three, I think it was about 1.5. I just think he’s panicked.”

When the truth came out, Amir, who instigated the whole thing, claimed Iain was the one who made him do it.
Since strawberry-gate, viewers have become increasingly concerned that Iain is being isolated from the group.
