It was her “flirtatious” antics with co-star Dr. Chris Brown that led to accusations that Morris was objectifying her male collegue, and she has taken to The Daily Telegraph to defend herself.
“I don’t really think reverse sexism exists,” she stated,
“I’m not objectifying Dr Chris [Brown] when we muck around on camera on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!”  He writes most of those jokes.”
Morris also pointed out that all interaction seen onscreen is entirely consensual and never demeaning.

“I’m not touching him, ogling him or doing anything he finds distressing or confronting.”

Morris, who has been subject to sexist on-stage heckling herself, stuck to her view that reverse-sexism is not a real problem.”People ask why it’s OK for me to do what I do and not men,” Morris clarrified.

“I think, after the millions of years the women have dealt with it, maybe the boys can get a little slice for a while.”
