ENGLISH NEWS:Ofcom Receive Complaints Over James Haskell On I’m A Celeb Get Me Out Of Here!

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!’s contestant James Haskell offended viewers with an  outburst – prompting complaints to TV regulator Ofcom.

The rugby player snapped, declaring he was “too intelligent” to take part in the “circus of stupidity” as the other celebrities pondered their answer in the Dingo Dollar Challenge.

Ofcom confirmed it had recieved 32 complaints from viewers about Haskell’s rant.

The 34-year-old sportsman lost his temper when the campmates were asked to answer the question “What percentage of adults think that a ‘stiff upper lip’ is generally a good thing? A – 37 per cent or B – 57 per cent?”, in order to win a treat.

GMTV presenter Kate Garraway explained to the other contestants what stiff upper lip was, and they started to think about their answer, but Haskell pushed them to vote on it, asking for a show of hands.

Garraway said: “James, we’ve got nothing else to do, it’s okay.”

Haskell later fumed to comedian Andrew Maxwell: “It irritates the p*** 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 lets move on.”

Haskell was voted out of camp last night!
