While viewers of I’m A Celebrity were over the moon to see Geordie lass Scarlett Moffatt win this years show, there was one pre-Christmas Grinch who wasn’t exactly pleased as punch.
Morning moaner Piers Morgan has expressed his unhappiness that the Gogglebox star was voted for by the public to become this year’s Queen of the jungle.
Why? Because he doesn’t know who she is.
“I don’t know anything about her, this Scarlett Moffatt character,” the former newspaper hack grumped on Good Morning Britain.
“Someone I’ve never heard of with other people I’ve never heard of talking about TV has won I’m A Celebrity, therefore becoming a celebrity.”
Continuing his rant, he moaned: “I can’t believe she’s in there either – what’s she in there for?”
When co-host Susanna Reid injected to explain that Scarlett is best known for her stint on Gogglebox (which gets two million more viewers than GMB) he seethed: “She’s not a super star though is she?”
“I’m not sure what it says about the world when someone who is famous for watching TV wins a TV show.”
Piers is no stranger to upsetting the ITV apple cart. Just two weeks ago he raged about Honey G, only for the rapper to snub the GMB couch!
