James Haskell has finally cleared up the drama over his I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here trial for Cliff Parisi.

The rugby star took part in a challenge on the EastEnders actor’s behalf, after he was ruled out over illness.

However, viewers were left livid when the 34-year-old appeared to throw the challenge and let Myles Stephenson win, meaning Cliff didn’t get immunity.

And James has now revealed that his former campmate asked him to throw the trial as he wanted to leave the jungle, so we can all calm down now.

During an appearance on ITV2 spin-off Extra Camp, he said: ‘It was a bit weird with the drinking challenge, with Cliff, because beforehand [in camp], he said to me, “I’m not liking it, I want to leave, please don’t win”.

‘So I basically said okay, I went up and saw I was against Myles and said, “Cliff’s got my back and said I’ll buy you a pint and dinner if you don’t win for me”.

‘I’m really competitive, so I started, realised I was beating Myles so stopped and slowed down.

‘But then Caitlyn, bless her, she can’t hear very well… She’d heard me say something, so was like, “What? What did you say? Don’t let Cliff win?”.

‘I was like, “Caitlyn, shut up! We’ve got it all under control!”

‘I don’t know what got broadcast but they [viewers] sometimes don’t see those bits where you help them out.’

James might not be happy to know that the only part that was aired was the moment he snapped at Caitlyn, which left viewers fuming.

The athlete’s comments come after he hit out at claims he bullied his campmates, explaining that it was a ‘shame’ he was perceived that way.

Fans were riled up over his tiff with Andy Whyment, as well as the moment he branded his co-stars stupid over a Dingo Dollar Challenge debate, but he was adamant he was just in there to ‘have fun’.

‘When you’re in the jungle, you are with 12 people from different walks of life,’ he explained on This Morning.

‘I went in with one idea, and one idea only and that was to challenge myself.

‘I wanted everyone to have an equal say and opportunity, but sometimes you have to do the greater good for everyone. In a normal world, it would just be a difference of opinion but in the jungle environment when you say things it’s put out a certain way.’

James added: ‘I went in to have fun, I didn’t want to take on a leadership role but I have been around team sports my entire life and sometimes debating stuff gets frustrating.

‘When you say things on there is can seem more than it was. In the jungle that may have come across as frustrated but it was nothing, it was a shame it came across as anything else.’


I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here continues daily, at 9pm, on ITV, with Extra Camp on ITV2 straight after.
