James Haskell snapped at his I’m A Celebrity 2019 campmates as they attempted to discuss a Dingo Dollar Challenge question.

Yesterday, James sparked tension in camp after he initiated a vote over who would complete the Bushtucker Trial.


Jacqueline Jossa and Roman Kemp had a chance to escape the sour mood when the visited the ‘Leaky Tiki Bar’ to complete a Dingo Dollar Challenge.

“There is no time for chilling. With every order the glasses need filling,” their instructions read.

“Using only your mouth, each cocktail must be made. Once the tables are all served, the Dingo Dollars will be paid.”

The pair donned shirts and bow ties before mixing coloured liquids to match the drinks on the menu.

However, the fiendish costumes left their arms strapped straight outwards, making their task even harder.

Jacqueline and Roman were left in fits of laughter as they struggled to make the cocktails, spilling liquid everywhere.


Eventually they obtained the Dollars, opting to spend them on ice lollies at the Outback Shack.

Kiosk Kev promptly called Snake Rock to ask the rest of the campmates: “What percentage of adults think that a stiff upper lip is generally a good thing?”

Offered a choice of 37% or 57%, Kate Garraway began to explain what the term ‘stiff upper lip’ means.

This triggered a discussion about the topic – one which James was eager to shut down with another vote.

As boredom takes hold after two long weeks in the jungle, other celebs questioned his attempt to force a quick decision.

“We’ve got nothing else to do, it’s OK,” urged Kate Garraway.

“Well you just keep asking the same question,” James hit back.


Following a majority verdict, Nadine Coyle submitted 37% as the answer – but the debate raged on.

“Maybe we shouldn’t do the Dingo Dollar Challenge anymore because everyone gets stressed about it,” commented Andy Whyment.

“I don’t get it, what stress?” sniped James. “I don’t understand what the stress is, it’s simple.

“A, stick your hand up in the air or B stick your hand up in the air, majority wins, I don’t get it.”

“There isn’t a problem, but maybe it’s something to have a think about if that’s OK,” replied Kate.

“But there’s nothing to think about,” James insisted.

Still on his soapbox, James cornered Andrew Maxwell after a trip to the dunny. “It irritates the p*** out of me because it’s that simple,” he ranted.

“It’s a circus of stupidity. I can’t do it, I’m too intelligent and too switched on.

“Just put your hands right up, let someone count them, right the majority win, shut up and lets move on.”

Defending the rest of the group, Andrew asked: “Yeah, but move on to what?”

“The food, the sooner you have the answer, the sooner they turn back up,” answered James.


Fortunately, 37% was correct, and Jacqueline and Roman soon returned with an ice pop for each person.
