I’m A Celeb’s Cliff Parisi drops James Haskell trial cheating bombshell

I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here 's Cliff Parisi has dropped a major bombshell about his time in the jungle.

The former EastEnders star revealed to Daily Star that James Haskell purposely "threw a trial".

Cliff, 58, was exempt from partaking in The Sickening Cinema trial last week on medical grounds.

The Bushtucker trial saw the campmates take part in gruesome challenges to win immunity for themselves, and Cliff nominated James to drink a vile concoction on his behalf.

However, Cliff claimed he purposely told James, 34, to do badly in the head-to-head trial, seeing Andrew Whyment, 38, gain immunity instead.

Speaking after his exit, Cliff said: "Right, do you want me to lie or do you want the truth? I told him to throw it.

"He had to do it and I was sorry that he had to do it for me. But I told him to throw the challenge. He loves a bloody challenge anyway, he would've done every single one of them. But I told him to throw it, for one, it wasn't fair for me to not be up for the public vote and not do the challenge.

"The following day I made sure I did the next challenge. So I loved doing the challenges, although it is torture. But it is getting out of camp. Camp can be torture too, being stuck in there all day long. It can be a bit tedious."

Cliff also addressed the seeming tension between himself and rugby star James, 34, in camp.

He divulged: "To be honest with you, I was asleep most of the time. So I missed a lot of this. It's quite nice for you to tell me what was happening. I dozed off by then.

"I think inevitably in that situation that we all found ourselves in. There's immense amount of boredom and total bedlam follows, and constant irritation because you're itchy, something's biting you all the time, all day and all night. And you've got hunger put on top. So it pushes the best and the most patient of us to the edge. There a few niggles but in general the camp was pretty jolly and solid."

James was booted off I'm A Celeb last night and bookies William Hill have suggested Ian Wright, 56, will be next to go.
