“I’m a Celebrity” star Brian Friedman has been reported and believed to have quit the show after a man who looked like him was spotted at Brisbane Airport.
The Sun reported that an Australian website published a picture which appeared to be the 36-year-old choreographer walking through the airport terminal. This fueled speculations that Brian quit the show after a string of rows with campmate Lady Colin Campbell.
It turned out that the man seen at the airport was Brian’s partner, Daniel Brown, who has flown to Australia to support him.
A spokesperson for “I’m A Celeb” also denied the report that Brian left the show.
The Sun quoted the spokesperson saying: “I’m pretty sure that isn’t Brian Friedman in that picture… We have no news that he’s left the jungle.”
Friedman will be facing the dreaded “Critter Shop of Horrors” in tonight’s episode after he complained about the lack of drinking water and fire wood on Tuesday.
Aside from Lady C, the “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here” contestant is also pissing off other fellow campers, the Evening Standard reported.
Lady C has branded the “X Factor” choreographer a “pastiche.”
“He is a complete pastiche, everything is an act. I would be the very last to discourage you from expressing yourself,” she said.
Kieron Dyer said he can’t spend longer than 20 minutes in Brian’s company, while Vicky Pattison tagged Friedman a “control freak” after he complained about not having fresh water.
Meanwhile, Lady C vowed to retaliate after Jorgie Porter and Tony Hadley refused to serve as bell boy and chambermaid to her, Kieron, and Chris Eubank.
The trio won a night of luxury in the jungle boutique hotel, and chose Jorgie and Tony as their bell boy and chambermaid. However, the two did not take the news very well and refused to do the challenge, Mirror wrote.
“I’ll tell you what’s going to happen tomorrow. There’s going to be a whole load of self-justifying flannel which is meant to throw sand in our eyes and blind us to the reality. What they’re saying is it’s demeaning of them to do anything for us but not demeaning for them to fill their guts with food while I am being tormented,” said Lady C.
“I’m A Celebrity” returns Wednesday at 9pm on ITV.
