‘I’m clearly of no use to anyone!’ I’m A Celebrity’s Chris Moyles brands himself a ‘long painful embarrassment’ as the camp gets ANOTHER question wrong following Deals On Wheels
Adding to their string of bad luck in the Deals On Wheels challenge, the DJ failed to pick the right answer when asked to add up the numbers that appear in the titles of Adele’s albums.
Learning they’d lost out on the chance to win chocolate-chip cookies, Chris moaned that he ‘was clearly no use to anyone’ in the camp.
AGAIN? Chris Moyles branded himself a ‘long, painful embarassment’ during Tuesday’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! after the camp missed out on yet another treat
After Mike Tindall and Matt Hancock completed Deals On Wheels, they learned that the prize on offer would be cookies.
The rugby star said: ‘Please camp, get this [question] right!’
In camp, they were asked how much the titles of Adele’s albums would add up to.
Looking to Chris for the answer – either A: 70 B: 94 or C: 95 – Chris said it was 70, but this turned out to be the wrong answer, meaning the camp lost yet another treat.
Returning to camp empty handed, Mike said: ‘You telling me Moyles doesn’t know the names of her albums?’
Jill insisted: ‘We were so adamant we got the question right.’
Chris said: ‘I’m not Adele!’
In the Bush Telegraph Chris confessed: ‘I’m clearly of no use to anyone here. This is just one long painful embarrassment for me.’
It comes after Chris was in the bottom two for Tuesday’s live vote, which saw Boy George become the fourth celebrity to be eliminated.
Tension: Chris was left annoyed in Tuesday night’s episode when Boy George didn’t let him take part in the latest Bushtucker trial
Snub? After Chris put himself forward for the trial, Boy George instead picked Seann Walsh and Mike Tindall for the task, despite Chris volunteering before them both
Earlier in that show, Chris was left annoyed when George didn’t let him take part in the latest Bushtucker trial.
The radio presenter put himself forward for the revolting Grot Yoga trial, which required three campmates to volunteer for the challenge to earn meals for camp.
It comes after Chris only managed to bag one star in his second Bushtucker trial last week when he was forced to face his fear of confined spaces.
Row: In the latest sign of camp tension, the presenter shared his annoyance at George after his campmates seemingly didn’t let him take part in the latest trial
In the latest sign of camp tension, the presenter shared his annoyance at George after his campmates seemingly didn’t let him take part in the latest trial.
After the camp learned the trial was called ‘Grot Yoga’, George, 61, put himself forward for the challenge, saying: ‘I’m up for doing it.’
Commenting on George’s love for yoga, Mike, 44, said: ‘Says yoga, says George.’
Chris then volunteered, adding: ‘I’ll put myself forward because I’ve not done a Trial well for a few days.’
Third to volunteer was Mike, who said: ‘I’ll happily do it.’
Seann also put himself forward, adding: ‘I’m in… I’m sick of being a coward and I’m going to brave it.’
George, Mike and Seann were the three campmates picked to do the trial, despite Jill Scott asking ‘but what about Chris?’.
Oh dear! It comes after Chris only managed to bag one star in his second Bushtucker Trial, Boiling Point, which saw him forced to face his fear of confined spaces to crawl through pipes
Chris claimed he didn’t make the cut because he was George’s ‘old friend’, with Seann being his new pal.
He said in the Bush Telegraph: ‘I’m like, “Hello…” then I wasn’t in the running anymore. I’m the old friend [of Boy George’s], Seann’s his new friend.’
George described the trio as the ‘perfect team’ in the Bush Telegraph, adding: ‘I think we chose the right people, we’re the perfect triangle.’
Later speaking to Mike, Chris shared his frustration at not being picked for the challenge, saying the situation had ‘escalated quickly.
Struggling: Not only was he struggling with his surroundings, things got worse when he dropped his bag, losing the spanners he was using to unscrew the stars, and the tokens
‘Well, that escalated quickly… I’m like, “Look, I’ll do it. I’ll put myself forward”, he said.
‘And then Seann goes, “I’ll do it”. And then Boy George goes, “It’s me, Seann and Mike”.’
To which Mike asked: ‘Are you upset…?’
An annoyed Chris then responded: ‘I’m out then am I..?’
I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! continues on Thursday at 9pm on ITV.
