I’m A Celebrity 2022: ‘He’s allowed an apron but no clothes underneath!’ Jill Scott says a naked David Beckham would be her dream dinner party guest
Jill Scott would love to have a naked David Beckham as the chef at her dream dinner party.
The former footballer, 35, who is engaged to her long-term girlfriend Shelly Unitt, made the revelation on Thursday’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! as the group talking about their perfect dinner guests.
Starting the conversation, comedian Seann Walsh asked: ‘What about guests at the dinner party – let’s say one alive, one dead, one fictional, who you going for?’
Cheeky: Jill Scott, 35, said she would love to have a naked David Beckham as the chef at her dream dinner party during Thursday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Jill – whose partner said the sportswoman is planning to do charity work after her jungle stint – said: ‘Joey from Friends, Princess Diana and Roy Keane. Princess Diana was just such an inspirational woman, I just want to hear the whole story.
‘And then can I have the naked chef David Beckham.’
Seann said: ‘Why not?! He’s allowed an apron but no clothes underneath.’
In the nude: Seann suggested David would be wear nothing but an apron at Jill’s dream dinner party (David pictured in 2020)
Jill – who recently discussed coming out as gay – laughed: ‘Perfect party.’
In the Bush Telegraph, Jill said: ‘I think if Beckham was in the buff in anybody’s kitchen I don’t think anybody would be concentrating on the food.’
Meanwhile, former Health Secretary Matt Hancock made his choices: ‘Dead person, I’d have JFK, absolutely fascinating and apparently one of the most charming people who has ever lived.’
Seann said: ‘You could ask him who he thought shot him.’
Beauty: Former Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he’d invited assassinated US president John F. Kennedy to his dinner party as his dead guest
Deep in conversation: Jill and Matt discussed who they would invite to their dream dinner party at the creek during a chat with Seann Walsh and Mike Tindall
Matt replied: ‘I think if someone’s dead, asking them about who killed them is probably a bit of a morbid conversation.
‘I want to say Kevin Keegan. I’ve never met him. Fictional character Pocahontas. Apparently she wasn’t fictional so I couldn’t have her…’
Seann laughed in the Bush Telegraph: ‘Pocahontas! Matt you can have anyone… doesn’t have to be a drawing… Pocahontas. I think we’re really getting to know the full Matt Hancock in here.’
MP for West Suffolk Matt added: ‘And I will have Marilyn Monroe as my naked chef. She’s [Jill] got David Beckham!’
Astounded: Comedian Seann found it hilarious that Matt said he’d invite Pocahontas to his dinner party, thinking he meant the cartoon Disney character
Former rugby player Mike Tindall said: ‘Dead, I would have Robin Williams. I just think he was a genius. Come in as Mrs Doubtfire and running off and coming back as Robin Williams. That would be the best.
‘Alive, Samuel L. Jackson, I just think he’s the king of cool. Fictional, I’d take Jason Bourne, just in case s*** goes down.’
Elsewhere, Seann added of his choices: ‘Alive, it’s between Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Carrey. There’d be no awkward silences with Jim Carrey.
‘Dead – [Charlie] Chaplin – the biggest comedy icon of all time. I’d get him to do slapstick at the dinner table.
In the buff: Seann said he’d have muscular Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner as his naked chef at his dinner party
‘Fictional, it has to be Ray from Ghostbusters.
And on his dinner party menu, Seann added: ‘Fish fingers, chips and beans. I’ll have spaghetti hoops instead of beans. [fellow campmate] Owen [is my naked chef].’
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! continues on Friday at 9.15pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
