Ian Wright and James Haskell haven’t exactly been winning over fans during their stint on I’m A Celebrity.
TV’s regulatory body Ofcom received complaints from viewers saying that Ian had been ‘bullying’ Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell, while more viewers were ‘furious’ at James’s treatment of Corrie’s Andy Whyment.
Now fans were up in arms at Ian and James’ discussion about Christmas, with both suggesting Santa Claus isn’t real.
The pair were discussing their Christmas traditions.
James told how the festive period was ‘the most magical time’ and that he was ‘spoilt rotten’ by his parents who made footprints in the carpet and left half-eaten carrots out for Santa.
Ian, 56, chipped in by saying he would dress up as Father Christmas for his own children.
But viewers were enraged by the conversation, with some accusing the pair of implying that Santa isn’t real.
Whooooa #ImACeleb less of the Santa talk!! Got a poorly 9 year old watching here 😩😩

Ruining Christmas for kids now🙄 If your kids are that young that Father Christmas is real then they should be in bed and not watching a show designed for adults after the watershed. Ruining Christmas, get to fuck. #imaceleb

One viewer fumed: “James just told the children who watch I’m A Celeb there’s no Santa.”
“Seriously annoyed with I’m A Celeb,” another raged.
“Watching with my daughter (who believes in Santa) and they show a clip of campmates chatting about how they play Santa at home.”
However, one person hit back: “All the complains about #ImACeleb talking about Christmas and ‘ruining it for kids’, am I the only one thinking that it’s not something kids should be watching? Or that kids that believe in Santa should be in bed by that time?”
