I’m A Celebrity: Chloe Madeley’s warning to fans over James Haskell

Wife has tried to explain his behaviour

| Updated:

He has increasingly been annoying I’m A Celebrity  viewers and it appears James Haskell took things a step too far when he snapped at camp favourite Kate Garraway on Saturday night’s show (November 30).

He snapped back during the latest Dingo Dollar challenge, insisting campmates just give one immediate answer, after there was some deliberation.

Explain the question, answer the question A or B, it’s a circus of stupidity.

Kate calmly suggested others might like to take their time over the decision, and he replied: “Kate, there’s nothing to think about.

“I don’t understand what the stress is, it’s simple… A, stick your hand up in the air or… B, stick your hand up in the air, majority wins, I don’t get it.”

And he couldn’t let it lie, later saying to Andrew Maxwell, who has also previously been on the receiving end of his bluntness: “It irritates the [bleep] out of me because it’s that simple.

“Explain the question, answer the question A or B, it’s a circus of stupidity.

“I can’t do it, I’m too intelligent and too switched on, just put your hands right up, let someone count them, right the majority win, shut up and let’s move on.”

While some viewers are praying for his exit in the very near future over his manner, wife Chloe Madeley has tried to offer some context.

Taking to Instagram she suggested that James is acting a little off because he’s hungry.

“The poor guy is in a right old grump. His BMR(basic metebolic rate) is around 2500 cals his TDEE(Total daily energy expenditure) is around 4000 cals so to go down to 800 maybe 1200 with stars, is clearly taking its toll on him.

“I think people should remember this is a TV show orchestrated to get big reactions out of big characters, and maybe take it a tad less seriously.”
