I’m a Celeb’s Abbie Chatfield says things are ‘totally good’ with ‘Dipper’ after their jungle row

Abbie Chatfield was left feeling ‘triggered’ by her I’m a Celebrity co-star Robert ‘Dipper’ DiPierdomenico’s disrespectful remarks about her bikini.

In an episode last week, the AFL legend, 62, insinuated the former Bachelor star, 25, was seeking attention by wearing the revealing swimwear in the jungle.

Speaking to Who magazine on Thursday, Abbie said she was glad she’d called out Dipper, but assured fans things were now ‘totally good’ between them.

‘I’ve been down this road before on The Bachelor when I was sl*t shamed. I’m glad it was aired,’ Abbie said, referring to her racy beach romp with Matt Agnew in 2019 which sparked backlash on social media.

She added: ‘I don’t want people to think it’s Abbie vs Dipper. I love Dip. We did the WAP dance two hours after that [argument]. He messaged me afterwards.’

Abbie had perfected the racy WAP dance – a routine inspired by the Cardi B song WAP ft. Megan Thee Stallion – while spending 14 days in hotel quarantine last year.

Abbie said her clash with Dipper was a learning experience for him and viewers.

‘I think it was a great conversation starter,’ she told Who. ‘I’ve had so many people message me to say that calling him out on his comment made them have a discussion with their sons, dads and other family members.’

As a bikini-clad Abbie strolled through the campsite on the show last week, Dipper remarked: ‘How do you walk around like that? How can you walk around like that? We should do a G-banger day.’

Despite Abbie insisting she was wearing her ‘most conservative togs’, the retired footballer wouldn’t back down and said: ‘You’re not going out like that.’

When the Bachelor in Paradise star asked Dipper to clarify what he meant, he said she was ‘seeking attention’.

Abbie later said Dipper’s choice of words was ‘quite triggering’ and ‘disappointing’.

Remorse: An apologetic Dipper addressed the incident on Wednesday, tweeting: 'Abby is an absolute force of nature. I shouldn't have said what I said in camp. I am glad we had the chance to discuss it. It was a learning moment and I am glad we could "twerk" it all out in the end'
