Ja’mie King of the Jungle.
The air-headed model and Love Island contestant once again channelled his inner b**chy private school girl in last night’s episode, opening up about his problems with overweight people.
Justin, you are so brave … thank you for sharing your story.
The audience for his latest foot-in-mouth moment? Gogglebox duo Angie Kent and Yvie Jones, who no doubt both need medical attention after biting their tongues so hard.
With food rations at camp limited, the trio were discussing how their time on I’m A Celeb so far had affected their bodies.
“Imagine what it’s like for me,” Justin told the ladies. (Umm, OK?)
“Imagine what it’s like for me; I’m fat. It takes a lot of work to get a body like this, Justin. A lot of eating,” Jones responded.
After staring at her blankly — it was a joke, Justin — the cogs started to whirr. Get ready, folks.
“As long as you’re not … the only thing I don’t like about people who are big, is if you complain about it. ‘I can’t fit into that dress, I’m too big. I can’t do this, I’m too big.’ I’m like, I can’t be around you. But if you embrace who you are, you’re awesome or whatever. You know?”
The ladies both stared at him in silence. Sensing this meant they were eager to hear more, he continued.
“(Yvie), you don’t complain about yourself. You’re not like ‘I’m unhappy with myself.’ You’re awesome. You’re a superstar,” he informed her, not at all patronisingly.
Both Angie and Yvie maintained a very un-Gogglebox-like silence to his face — then waited for a private moment to debrief.
“You know the thing I hate about fat girls …?” Yvie said as they went to the well, an expression of disbelief still on her face.
“I didn’t know what to say so I didn’t say anything. Sorry white privilege skinny handsome male, please don’t sit there and tell me what you hate about people who are the complete opposite of you,” said Angie.
In a to-camera confessional, Yvie offered a word of advice we think someone needs to tell Justin to his face.
“How about you don’t ever, ever talk about bigger people when you’re not one and you never have been. Why don’t you just go and take a photo, and get your clothes off.
“Lucky he’s good looking.”
In a conversation earlier this season, Lacko had complained to Jones and fellow campmate Sam Dastyari that people don’t take him seriously because he’s so attractive.
