‘You’re hideous’: I’m A Celeb’s ugliest fight
WELL, this was always bound to happen.
After niggling disagreements with campmates including Peter Rowsthorn and Paul Burrell, David Oldfield has had his first full-on I'm A Celeb fight.
The blow-up happens in tonight's episode, and sees former One Nation politician Oldfield and comedian Fiona O'Loughlin clashing over Indigenous welfare issues.
Tensions are already high as we join the opposing pair midway through their discussion in our exclusive preview clip.
Earlier in the debate, Oldfield had questioned how much Aboriginal people had contributed to Australian society, while O'Loughlin explained that her own son works closely with Aboriginal communities and has seen first-hand the effect of ignorant comments and beliefs like Oldfield's.
"It's primarily my taxes that are paying for all this," says Oldfield.
"And it's primarily their children that are dying prematurely. Their death and heartache, not yours," says O'Loughlin, rising from her camp bed.
"You are HIDEOUS to me, HIDEOUS. You make my skin crawl. My son would wipe the floor with you. I don't have the knowledge that he does, but I dare you, I challenge you to meet my son on the other side of this," she tells him.
"Why would I bother?"
"Because he knows what he's talking about, and you f**king don't," she says, turning her back on Oldfield and leaving the campsite.
"Well you only know what your son knows, and we're not sure what that is ..."
"Oh, F**K YOU," she yells as she leaves.
It appears that the Oldfields are turning off viewers as well as their campmates - Tuesday and Wednesday night's episodes of the show, the first to feature the couple at length, were also the first episodes in the four Aussie seasons of I'm A Celeb to draw under 500,000 viewers across the five metro cities. Last night 496,000 people watched I'm A Celeb, compared to 1.34 million tuning in to Married At First Sight over on Nine at the same time.
