‘I’m A Celebrity’ Fans Praise Ant And Dec For Proving Iain Lee Didn’t Lie About Bushtucker Trial

‘I’m A Celebrity’ viewers were thrilled for Iain Lee last night (5 December), when Ant and Dec proved the comedian hadn’t been lying to his campmates earlier in the series.

Iain was forced to duck out of a Bushtucker Trial that would see him submerging himself in a pool of water to collect stars after just a few seconds, telling the rest of the group that the three-metre plunge would be too much for him.

In Tuesday’s show, the challenge was reintroduced for Dennis Wise to take on, successfully managing to pick all eight of the stars and therefore bagging a meal for each of the remaining contestants.

When Dennis came back, he claimed to the rest of the group that Iain had been exaggerating about the severity of the challenge, claiming the pool was only a metre and a half deep.

However, Ant and Dec were quick to clarify for viewers that Iain actually had been telling the truth, revealing the pool was 2.97m deep, and getting an enthusiastic thumbs up from ‘I’m A Celeb’ fans…

Thank you @antanddec for stating facts to prove Iain isn’t over-exaggerating everything #imaceleb
So Iain was right. Hope they tell Dennis, Amir & Jamie that the pool was 3m. And show the other two strawberry gate #ImACeleb
I think @denniswise was very quick to belittle @iainlee. The pool for the challenge was actually 3m deep. Get your facts right Dennis!
Also glad Ant and Dec cleared up the whole pool situation, as if Dennis said the pool is 1.5m deep ? when he’s about 1.5m tall ? #ImACeleb
Dennis “it was only 1m high, Iain is just being dramatic saying it was 3m high” .. Dec: “it’s actually 2.97m” #imaceleb pic.twitter.com/pG4AVKBxHG
Dennis bitching behind Iain’s back about the depth of the pool really pisses me off. Turns out it is 3m deep and Iain is once again right #imaceleb
Iain 2 win!! When there is nothing more satisfying than hearing the pool was 3 meters deep ?? DENNIS #ImACeleb pic.twitter.com/TtUroOkrdV
I hope when the celebs leave @antanddec tell them the pool was actually 3m ? #TeamIain #ImACeleb pic.twitter.com/sbB47qV8T0
This isn’t the first time that Iain has been wrongly accused by his campmates, after he and Amir Khan confessed to scoffing the group’s strawberries and cream, which they’d all won as a treat.
When Amir was asked whether Iain had come up with the idea, he allowed them to believe that this was the case, when actually the boxer was the instigator in what has since been dubbed “strawberry-gate” by fans.
