I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is hit with a potential ‘bullying’ scandal after fans share concern over Chris Moyles’ treatment of Owen Warner

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has been hit with a potential ‘bullying’ scandal after fans shared their concern over Chris Moyles‘ treatment of Owen Warner.

As the 22nd series of the hit ITV show gets fully under way, the celebrities are getting to know one another and audiences are watching their every move.

But after just six episodes, some fans have pointed out what they call ‘bullying’ from Radio One DJ Chris Moyles, 48, who has been making a few jokes about Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, 23.

Some have argued that his jokes have been a ‘charade’ which have gone unnoticed due to the intense focus on Matt Hancock appearing in the jungle, his continual Bushtucker Trials and the grillings from fellow campmates.

Owen has not got involved in the intense conversations surrounding Matt Hancock because he has said he doesn’t know much about it.

He told the Bush Telegraph it was ‘because I don’t really follow politics’ – and surprised Chris when he said he didn’t know who the radio star was.

Taking advantage of the situation to make a joke, Chris told the actor that he was a world-class dancer, winning three British championships – only for Owen to take him for his word. 

He also failed to recognise Sue Cleaver and Boy George.

One fan wrote on Twitter: ‘Of course it’s all about Matt Hancock, but has the fact that Chris Moyles is bullying Owen with this charade, has this gone unnoticed.

‘It’s not bants it’s not big, it’s not clever, grow up.’

Another added: ‘Chris Moyles boils my blood. Cannot stand that man especially what he’s doing to Owen.’

Someone else similarly wrote: ‘Watched #ImACeleb and can’t understand why Chris Moyles is being allowed to get away with bullying Owen.’

Writing on Friday night’s episode, another user said: ‘Please let George fail on at least one – the man is vile. Sick of Chris Moyles mocking Owen for fun too #ImACeleb.’

One other wrote: ‘Hope Chris Moyles doesn’t keep leading him on though. At the moment it’s funny but could end up being an uncomfortable watch especially if the other campmates find it hysterical at Owen’s expense. It might be Chris’ downfall.’

Back in 2008, the Radio One presenter was thrown into similar controversy after being accused of bullying Nicola Roberts, after saying he fancied all the members of her band Girls Aloud ‘apart from the ginger one’.

He also called her ‘horsey chops’ and a ‘sour faced old cow’.

She hit back at the time, speaking to Heat Magazine: ‘This argument doesn’t bother me any more. I’ve grown out of it – it’s six years old.

‘I don’t care what he says about me, but what bothers me is that there are loads of people being bullied for the way they look or act – they are made to feel s*** about themselves because they don’t conform to how society wants them to be.
