TV watchdog Ofcom has ‘received 100 complaints’ over I’m A Celebrity bullying row

It’s been reported that Ofcom has now received complaints, following allegations that Iain Lee has been bullied on I’m A Celebrity.

Viewers have been voicing their anger online over Jamie Lomas, Amir Khan and Dennis Wise “bullying” TV and radio presenter Iain Lee in the jungle.

The most recent incident – which was enough for viewers to demand action – was when Dennis Wise blocked Iain from taking part in a Bushtucker trial.

According to the Mirror, TV watchdog Ofcom has received 100 complaints from worried viewers. And, during last night’s I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp, Iain admitted to feeling “isolated” in camp.

“I’m a very nervous, socially-awkward person so the thing I’ve struggled with most is being around ten other big personalities. Normally, I’m quite isolated,” Iain revealed.

ITV deny any claims of bullying, however, saying in a short statement: “The welfare of all our celebrities is of utmost importance and we’ve not witnessed nor had any complaints of bullying from any of them.”

I’m A Celebrity continues tonight (December 8) from 9pm on ITV.
