I’m a Star… I Need to Get Out of Here! Viewers have slammed Josie Gibson and Nella Rose for their conduct in camp.
The 38-year-old This Morning host and YouTuber, 26, have been labelled ‘disrespectful’ for their actions on the reality programme in response to debates over hygiene in their jungle house.
Fans on Reddit have joined in, confessing that their reactions to Fred Sirieix – who obviously knows his stuff when it comes to cooking and washing up – irritated them.
‘As we saw at the end of the previous episode talks were happening about the cleanliness of camp, including the dishes needing to be rewashed and the way Josie & Nella reacted was pathetic and frankly disrespectful to their camp mates,’ ranted one viewer.
‘Regardless if the dishes are on the ground or not they’re not— they’re dirty, and you were suppose to have washed them.
‘If they had done the dishes properly the first time they wouldn’t have to do it again, and no, Josie you’re not “Fred’s staff” but you’re apart of a f***ing camp. This s**t totally rubbed me the wrong way, and I was happy when karma came for Josie during the next trial.’
Josie found herself leaving the Barbaric Barbershop, despite the fact that she had to confront spiders, one of her greatest phobias, but fans were not sympathetic.
‘It’s no wonder the dishes are still dirty if that’s how you’re cleaning them, Josie. Good Lord,’ quipped one fan, while another called out Nella and Josie for ‘moaning’.
‘Firstly, considering Fred works in the food industry and neither of you do, I would trust him to say what is and isn’t clean enough any day of the week,’ they argued. ‘If he says you’re doing a half-arsed job, it’s probably because you’re doing a half-arsed job.
‘Secondly, if you don’t want to do the bare minimum? Don’t. Eat from the trays, give yourselves food poisoning, and then we’ll see how clean you think they are.’
Another observer argued that the problem is with ‘the camp as a whole’ being ‘unappreciative’ of Fred’s efforts, albeit they did blame Nella and Josie.
‘He works 100x harder than them while they literally just dunk the dishes in some water and call it a day,’ the Reddit user said. ‘They love to complain when Fred takes control and starts ordering people around, but if he didn’t do it, then who would?’
Last week, the pair ignited debate when they explained their concept of’real men,’ saying that staying in camp had’restored their faith’ as they watched Fred gather wood for the fire.
The chat was all in jest, but one viewer complained: ‘Not a fan of the “real men” comments from Josie and Nella in regards to the men doing all the work around camp – imagine if two guys watched the girls cook dinner and said “yeah these are real women.”‘
Another person added: ‘Nella and Josie embarrassing themselves with the “real men” comment.’
