I’m A Celebrity viewers have slammed Josie Gibson for mocking her fellow campmate Fred Sirieix. Tension has been rising over the last few days between the pair with Fred’s interference while Josie, 38, has been cooking, but now fans believe the This Morning star is going too far.
After Fred, 51, and Marvin Humes arrived back into camp after winning five stars out of eight in the latest bushtucker trial, Josie mocked Fred as she spoke to Danielle Harold. Viewers took to X, formerly known as Twitter to complain about the mum-of-one for mimicking the First Dates star.
One person said: “Oh no Josie don’t stoop to Danielle’s level #Imacelebrity #imaceleb.” Another X user expressed: “Bruh I can’t route for Danielle and Josie when they’re making fun of Fred like that. Like grow up, you can dislike someone without acting like a bully about it.”
“It’s crazy how Josie can cook with that massive chip on her shoulder,” somebody said, while another added: “Hmmmmm, not liking that side of Josie I have to say #ImACeleb #ImACelebrity.”
A fifth fan wrote: “Why are Josie and Danielle acting like children? #ImACeleb #ImACelebrity,” and yet another said: “Such unnecessary b***hiness #ImACeleb #ImACelebrity.”
Josie made faces and pretended to cry as she imitated Fred for not being able to get the full amount of stars in the trial. As she made gestures, Danielle and Josie burst into laughter while Fred could be heard telling the other campers what happened during the challenge.
“I’m not the camp chef, cry, cry,” the Big Brother star joked as she continued to imitate the French-native. On Monday night’s episode of the ITV show, things got heated in the jungle as Fred and Josie continued to clash over the cooking.
Tony Bellew attempted to step in and manage the rising conflict, as he told Fred to stop interfering as it was annoying Josie.
Tony hit out at Fred again after he volunteered himself for the trial and didn’t ask anybody else if they wanted to do it. Marvin suggested himself to do the trial but Fred chimed in and claimed it for himself.
Tony jumped in and said: “Let’s just take our time and everyone have a little say of why they think they should do it before we just jump in and rush off. Chill out, Fred.”
I’m A Celebrity continues at 9pm on Wednesday on ITV1 and ITVX.
