Joey Essex Offends Rebecca Adlington
Friction in I'm A Celebrity after Towie star's comment about women...
The Towie star offended the Olympic medal-winning swimmer with a comment which appeared to suggest that Amy Willerton was the only "fit" woman in their team.
When she took issue with him, the 23-year-old insisted that she had got the wrong end of the stick.
"I didn't say that. I said Amy's the only one in this camp who if I wanted to, I could flirt with."
Joey was last night seen winning his second Bushtucker Trial, triumphing over Matthew Wright in a tie-break after they had both endured the "Up to your neck in it" challenge.
They each had to estimate 60 seconds passing and press a button, with Joey taking the win by just one second.
Wright expressed his frustrations afterward and questioned whether Joey's "himbo" personality could be a ruse.
"Losing twice in a row is not great for my ego at all and it also suggests to me that Joey doing the 'I don't know this and I don't know that' may be a bit of a front."
However a newly published interview with Joey from before he went into the jungle suggests that he might be a bit naive about his chances of movie stardom.
He told The Sun: "I'd love to play 007 one day. That would be sick. The closest I have come to playing Bond was the shoot for my fragrance recently and I loved it.
"I'd love to go to Hollywood. So we'll see what happens. The only problem is that I'm no good at reading scripts.
"Maybe I'll just do the kissing scenes instead."
Two new contestants are entering the show tomorrow night.
