Joe Swash fakes being dumb and only won IAC because of editing, says co-star

I’m A Celebrity icon Nicola McLean has hit out at former winner Joe Swash, who was a late addition to the South Africa series earlier this year.

Joe won Nicola’s series in 2008, and Nicola has claimed that Joe was crowned King of the Jungle because he has good editing while he was on the show.

Speaking about the drama going on in the South African jungle, Nicola told Daily Star in an Instagram Live: “It's probably like annoying, when newcomers come in it's never great, even if you've been in the camp for a day longer than someone, 24 hours in there feels like a really long time.

“And for Joe to come in and take over, and clearly that's what Paul feels like he's doing and I thought that was quite telling. He doesn't see Joe as a leader, he sees Fatima as it, so I think he was just being honest.”

Nicola then claimed that there is more than what meets the eye with Joe, as she thinks that Joe managed to win his series thanks to good editing from I’m A Celebrity bosses.

She continued: “I think it's clever editing, I think they can edit anybody to win, who gets the most airtime, positive airtime, that's the person who is going to win.

“Yes the viewers vote, but the viewers only vote for what they can see and are led by. I definitely feel like these shows are edited in favour of whoever the producers want to win.”

Nicola added: “I don't think that the selection process was fair as the person left last will feel like s**t. A lot of people gave Joe stick but I don't think he did anything wrong, that picking selection was hardcore.

“But picking Janice was tactical wasn't it, not to win but to have a bit of airtime, to say 'I'm scared of Janice'. Joe's image may be dumb but he's far from it. It's part of a good storyline.”
