In an upset to match that time Ganguly refused to walk at the Indian Premier League in 2008 (I have no idea what I just wrote), Shane Warne, 46, has been ousted from the I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! jungle.
The former cricketer was a favourite to take out the whole damn show, so he and his fellow internees were somewhat surprised by the development.
But perhaps one of the most surprising turn of events was that it turns out Warne wasn’t just name-dropping when he claimed Coldplay’s Chris Martin as one of his best mates.
Martin made him a video message to mark the occasion, displaying intimate Warnie knowledge.
“I’m sending you a message of love and support,” said Martin.
“I have been living out here in the jungle on my own for a few weeks in solidarity with you. I hope you get out soon cos I’m desperate for some cake. Anyway, I hope you’re doing great. At least your cell phone bill will be a bit less this month.”
It’s not all bad news for Warnie now that he’s out of the jungle. There are lots of things he can now do that the jungle precluded.
Firstly, he can resume his regular diet.
Time to do 5 hours of Radio back to Australia re #ImACelebrityAU ! I’ve smashed a pizza, Spag Bol, Hot Chips, chocolate & now more chips !!
