I’m A Celeb… Strike

November 29, 2013 by  

I’m A Celeb… Strike, TV presenter Matthew Wright seems to wear his emotions on his sleeve; viewers have seen him cry, become despondent and now we’ve seen further evidence of his short temper when he tried to rally the rest of the celebrities into strike action.

Westlife star Kian Egan asked for the rain canopy above them to be moved to provide some shade because the camp was too hot. However, the producers turned down his request. This angered Matthew: “If we all take our mikes off, we’ll soon find the canopy will come down pretty quick. Are you with me fellows? Revolution, aye?”

In response, his fellow campers displayed the enthusiasm of a husband being dragged around the shops by his wife.

The plan was scuppered when Emmerdale actress Lucy Pargeter returned from her Bushtucker Trial and Kian asked her to talk about it. Matthew interrupted, saying: “We thought we’d sit here in complete silence until the canopy comes down.”

But Kian kept talking so Matthew railed at him: ” That’s solidarity, brother, that’s what happened with industrial relations in this country – scabs like you!”

Another attempt at a conversation was interrupted, with Matthew telling Kian: ” Oh scab! I didn’t even want the canopy down, I’m only doing it for everyone else. I thought we were going to make some kind of stand and then every three seconds you are undermining it.”

The Westlife star snapped back: ” You’re the only person who wants to do it! Lucy has just come back from the trial – we should listen to her speak. Let her talk about it. Your attitude is unnecessary.”

Matthew’s rant didn’t go down well on Twitter: Comedian Kevin Bridges tweeted: “Matthew Wright looks like a guy you’d meet in your hotel on day one of your holiday and have painful small talk with every day at breakfast.”

@TheVampsJames posted: “Grrrr I am starting to hate @Matthew_Wright even more. Seriously vote him out already.” ‏Twitter user @y04hardmans said: “Can’t bloody stand Matthew Wright, such an idiot kicking off. Childish behaviour for a middle aged man!!” This appears to be the consensus; will the TV broadcaster be the first celebrity voted out?
