'I'm A Celebrity' Faces Fix Claims From Former Contestant Shaun Ryder

'As far as I am concerned the game was rigged.'

Former ‘I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!’ campmate Shaun Ryder has sensationally claimed the show is fixed.

The Happy Mondays star has revealed he thinks producers rig the series to ensure the favourite is crowned King or Queen of the Jungle.

Shaun also called the show a “piece of piss”, despite revealing he never wanted to take part.

“I didn’t want to go and I was kicking and screaming not to do it,” he said. “It was the record company, my girls and the missus that wanted me to do that. But I am glad that I did it. It has led to a lot of good things.

“I find it funny when people say that it was really hard. Life is much harder than that. You are starved of a bit of food, you go on a few walks and you have to eat a few bugs. It’s a piece of piss.”

The current series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’ concludes on Sunday (4 December), with Adam Thomas, Joel Dommett, Scarlett Moffatt, Sam Quek, Martin Roberts and Wayne Bridge still left in the jungle. 

HuffPost UK has contacted an ‘I’m A Celebrity’ spokesperson for comment on this story.
