I’m A Celeb’s Harry Redknapp calls campmates “gross” for picking spots

We're with the football manager on this one

With everything they go through during Bushtucker trials, it takes a lot to gross us viewers out on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

But the campmates more than succeeded during Saturday night’s show when they spent ages popping each other’s spots.

Harry Redknapp apparently agreed with us, shaking his head and taking to the Bush Telegraph to call his campmates: “Gross.”

Rita Simons started the disgusting group activity, picking at her face and shouting: “Ooh, who wants to see it, who wants to see it?”

Emily Atack, Sair Khan and Fleur East all ran over, shrieking with delight as Sair screamed: “That’s pimple popper!”

The EastEnders’ star laughed as she said: “God we’re disgusting aren’t we? I love popping spots. I’ve got more in here, I know it.”

Actress Emily laughed: “We’re so gross!”

They encouraged Rita while Harry shook his head a few feet away.

Rita, 41, continued oblivious to his horror, shouting: “There’s a bit in there that’s got to come out.” She added in the Bush Telegraph: “The others were just as enthusiastic as me. I think loads of girls love spot popping.”

After Rita, the gang then turned to X Factor star Fleur, with Emily squeezing away at her friend’s face. “Ugh, it stings,” Fleur shouted.

“It killed!” she added in the Bush Telegraph. “I thought the bites from the green ants were painful, but that was killer.

“If I get another spot, I’m going to have to hide it with my hair because Rita’s going to be coming for me.”

Next up was Sair, and even John Barrowman got involved, getting close to the Corrie actress’ face while Rita did the honours.

“Ugh, that was disgusting,” Sair moaned.

“That was like an explosion,” the Doctor Who star added, delighted.

The 71-year-old football manager was distinctly unimpressed though, disappearing to the Telegraph to complain: “I did find the spot popping a bit gross. All getting round like it was a spot popping party or something, it was a bit unusual.”

He added: “But Rita don’t care, does she? Rita don’t give a monkeys.”

Back in the studio, presenter Holly Willoughby joked that it meant Fleur and James McVey weren’t the only “pop-stars” in the camp.

Viewers totally agreed with Harry, tweeting: “Harry is me when popping spots #ImACeleb.”

Another added: “Harry Redknapp shaking his head at them squeezing spots has me in bits😂😂.”

A third wrote: “Harry describing enjoying popping spots as a ‘little unusual’. Bless you harry #imACeleb.”
