Ian Wright Wright Wright seems to be in the wrong, as viewers label the I’m A Celeb campmate a ‘bully’.

I’m not sure if I totally agree with this…

Ian Wright Andrew Maxwell

In last night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!, former footballer Ian Wright and Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell had yet ANOTHER tiff.

This time, the spat began because Ian asked actress Jacqueline Jossa to taste the dish he and fellow campmate Kate Garraway had prepared. As it was only Kate and Ian that had been asked to take on cooking duties by camp leader Caitlyn Jenner, Andrew remarked that Jossa shouldn’t be aiding the cooking if that isn’t her given role.

Ridiculous, am I right? Wright certainly thought so too.

Later, Maxwell went to help himself to a second helping of dinner which prompted Jacqueline to slate Maxwell’s double standards. Surprisingly, the irritable comedian peacefully took the comment in his stride – a reaction which left Ian shocked.

Unfortunately for the camp, Ian finds it difficult to keep his emotions bottled-up and so he decided to raise his point. He spoke to Andrew in front of the other celebrities, saying that Maxwell wouldn’t have been so calm about the criticism if it was him it was coming from.

Which, IMO, is a fair enough statement; just look at the way Andrew has reacted to Ian’s views before.

Interestingly, Jossa seemed to agree with Ian.

Albeit, it seems that most viewers are convinced that Ian is actually bullying his fellow campmate.

Here’s what I’m A Celeb fans have been saying on Twitter:

However, some viewers are running to Ian’s defence, saying that the sports player is simply expressing his feelings:

As you’d expect, Ian’s wife Nancy has been the first to defend her husband. She told The Sun their bickering simply comes down to them both being strong characters.

She continued by saying: “He has had his moments but he’s doing well. I can’t wait to see him. It’s been a long time not seeing him, I think he’s doing brilliantly”.
