I'm a Celeb's Justin has a problem with 'big' people. Angie and Yvie's faces say it all.


From complaining he’s “too attractive” to be taken seriously to describing himself as “amazing”, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here’s Justin Lacko King has certainly made a name for himself.

Now, in last night’s episode of the reality show, the former Love Island contestant and model has shared his big problem with overweight people – and it’s seriously problematic.

Speaking to Googlebox’s Angie Kent and Yvie Jones about how the limited food supplies in the jungle has affected their weight, Justin shared his views on ‘big’ people.

“Imagine what it’s like for me; I’m fat. It takes a lot of work to get a body like this, Justin. A lot of eating,” Yvie jokingly told Justin, after discussing the lack of food in camp.

“As long as you’re not… the only thing I don’t like about people who are big, is if you complain about it. ‘I can’t fit into that dress, I’m too big. I can’t do this, I’m too big.’ I’m like, I can’t be around you. But if you embrace who you are, you’re awesome or whatever. You know?” Justin responded.


Despite not saying a word, it was clear Angie and Yvie weren’t impressed with Justin’s unnecessary comments.

“[Yvie], you don’t complain about yourself,” Justin continued, filling the awkward silence.

“You’re not like ‘I’m unhappy with myself.’ You’re awesome. You’re a superstar,” he added.

Oh dear.

Speaking privately later on in the day, Angie and Yvie discussed their strange encounter with Justin in disbelief.

“You know the thing I hate about fat girls,” Yvie said.

“I didn’t know what to say so I didn’t say anything,” Angie responded.

“Sorry white privileged skinny handsome male, please don’t sit there and tell me what you hate about people who are the complete opposite of you.”

Speaking in a confessional video, Yvie shared some words of advice to Justin.

“How about you don’t ever, ever talk about bigger people when you’re not one and you never have been. Why don’t you just go and take a photo, and get your clothes off," she said.

On tonight's episode of the reality show, American actress Katherine Kelly Lang will enter the jungle.

The 52-year-old actress is well-known for playing Brooke Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful.
