BRACE yourselves ­Australia, Network Ten have landed themselves in some serious hot water.

The 2015 series of I'm a Celebrity... is off to a shakey start.
The 2015 series of I’m a Celebrity… is off to a shakey start.

 

Not only have they officially redefined the term “Celebrity” – but they are also now in the spotlight for the bizarre behaviour of a female reality TV contestant while filming an upcoming series in South Africa.

Before Network Ten even had the opportunity to announce the inclusion of the ever-irrelevant and self-confessed sex addict Chrissie Swan in the 2015 version of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!  – it seems they are already wishing she was never invited along in the first place.

When asked for comment surrounding the events that have taken place on set in South Africa this week, Network Ten CEO, Hamish McLennan has admitted “things are looking very grim”.

According to industry sources, Ms Swan was fired from the program after locals and employee’s of Ten took offence to her “disgusting, yobbo behaviour”.

“What we have here is a lady with not much clout, behaving as though she is some sort of Afrikaan business magnate during the Apartheid. In fact she even made a joke about the Apartheid… in front of the South African tour guides,” Said a disgruntled McLennan.

“As if that wasn’t enough she spent most of the time here either smoking cigarettes or drinking booze. She is not a very nice lady to travel with, from all accounts. She insisted that the contestants and crew go on a ‘game hunt’ just so she could kill an elephant with a high-powered rifle. She will not be working for Network Ten ever, ever again,”

Unshaken by the events, Ms Swan has already solicited her management team for exclusive interviews on both Channel 9 and Channel 7 to give “her side of the story”.

The Ten bosses have dismissed any concern regarding Swan’s attention-seeking, with McLennan himself admitting to being the individual to make the decision to fire her in the first place

“This is a tried and true method for Australian’s in media to stay relevant when their careers quieten down. It is something that Ms Swan has done many times before. If you had heard some of the complaints that made their way to me… You would understand.”

In the meanwhile Chrissie Swan has taken to social media to air her frustrations at what she believes is a “sexist, misogynistic, ageist, popularity contest”

It gets better. The Network Ten CEO fires shots back.

Ten’s executives were unable to clarify whether or not staff and remaining contestants would continue filming, however the extremely expensive program looks to rate as poorly as just about every other “experiment” Channel Ten decides to steal from the United Kingdom

The U.K version I’m A Celebrity… has positioned itself as somewhat of a cult classic over the years, particularly with Australian contestants. Including the likes of former Neighbours star Jason Donovan, singer Peter Andre, even spin king Shane Warne appearing on the UK version – in it’s second year, the Australian version does not look to be as successful.

Chrissie Swan has confirmed she will return to using her social media presence to continue selling clothing for big and tall women.

    I thought Chrissie was remarkably tolerant after being treated so hideously in first tucker trial which was too extreme and really disgusting for any individual to withstand.
    To dismiss her for a thoughtless aside is extreme and reeks of political correctness gone haywire.
    And Yes I am Caucasian d I dismissed fairly.

    I agree with Network Ten’s decision as I find myself not wanting to watch her sometimes with her disgusting behaviour or conversations. For eg the conversation she had with Merv Hughes on the first day.

      Agree she is disgusting & didn’t do all challenges. She said get me out of here? So why is she still there? Get rid of her as self serving & makes excuses for everything. Thinks she should get a free pass, No way.

    merv Hughes comment “She’s gotta face for radio” to Maureen MCormick was disgusting.
    Merv Hughes comment “if you dig further enough, up a booga can come right out from one side of your nose to the other”. Great viewing Channel ten, with Chrissie being always!
    Channel Ten made fun of a sound man caught in background one night and made him look foolish walking on set the next (he wasn’t Caucasian!) belittling unprofessional help as humour! Shame on you Channel Ten!
    Andrew Daddow’s remark to Maureen McCormick on introduction, was embarrassing as he said himself later, but didn’t have to go to air.
    Misogyny Channel Ten and rude toward any woman over 45kg!
    Honestly Channel Ten eat your own offal !

      Merv Hughes remark was about Chrissie (sorry I didn’t clarify) and also Chrissie was polite in her response to Merv even tho he kept repeating himself until Chrissie heard and was forced to listen to that comment.
      Lazy SOB ate what Chrissie cooked, shat in long drop that Chrissie volunteered to ‘look after’ and Chrissie smiles and is nice to all the whining so and so’s.
      Channel Ten you are unplugged forever!

    Merv is a bogan. ‘Josh’ is a biatch and so is that anorexic whinger whats her name..Get rid of all three. I thought Joel was funny..at first..but to want to get rid of Tyson because he looks good shirtless? He has more to offer. Tyson has travelled alot and done charitable work. You crossed a line ‘funny man’.

    I love shows like this. Peoples’ true self come out. I am rivetted to it and I usually love The Block and MKR. I hope the stories about Chrissie aren’t true. She seems so warm and friendly. Tyson for the win or Anna. Anna has proven to be a champ eating that disgusting food. Those two make a nice couple. Maureen is a character. Not at all what I thought she would be. She’s a bit loopy. Miss anorexia..keep your clothes on pleeease Lauren is a cow. What a nasty piece of work. Had no clue who the hell she was..still don’t. Barry has had a gutful of her haha! Me too! I will be voting her off the island asap!

    Glad to see the back of her. Yet another reality show hanger on with not much too offer apart from witless humor and crass behavior. Merv is a breath of fresh air who’s not too worried about losing a contract from channel ten. Josh is becoming more camp by the episode and less funny, Julie Goodwin, seriously !! Love the way all the leftie greenie chorus start to scream sexism and mysogomy Suck it up.

    Chrissy Was Pathetic Tonight. For someone that Obviously Luuvs Her Food. She Showed Just How Useless She Is, By Failing the Tucker Trial. Merv Was Amazing. What the Hell Is Swan Even Doing There ?? She IS Worse Than Useless.

      I Personally Could Not Have Eaten What Chrissie Had To Eat – But I Have Seen a Different Chrissie Swan on the Show – She Does Talk About People Behind There Back – As Does Joel Creasey – They Are Both Like a Pair Of Old Women – She Most Certainly Should Not Win – There Are Many Others Who Deserve The Win – I Am a Big Fan Of Julie Goodwin – Good Luck To Them All – Regards Specialbell

    No Need To Be Unkind – The Truth Does Not Hurt Though In a Nice Way – I Do Agree Chrissie Should Not Be There – Home With Her Loved Ones – Shes Not a Jungle Lady THATS For Sure an Should Try To Keep Her Mouth Clossed Not Talk About Every one – But She Is Brave To Take On The Challenge – There Are a Lot Of Others Who Deserve To Win – The Guys Are Amazing an So The Ladies To Be There – I Love Julie Goodwin xx

    Chrissie swan was bad in all tucker trials and I would be very disappointed if she wins the show.

    She has done nothing to impress me.

    How is she favourite to win the show? I dont understand

    Also it said in some magazine That She LOST 15KG – THREE DRESS SIZES?????? Really I only see that the 15kg might of gone back into that Ass -Really she hasn’t lost weight-f*****g- Media Crap.

    There’s a difference in going to work because you have to and seeking fame – Chrissie Swan is obviously wrong in this instance and anyone that thinks otherwise is also wrong. End of Story – No further correspondence will be entered into

    Wow, most of u who commented are nasty pieces of work. Chrissie did more for the show than so many others. And all u people who have negative things 2 say, I’d pay 2 see just 1 of u go through what Chrissie did, and it wasnt just for her sake. It was for the other celebrities too. Grow up people #judgemental children.

      Bec, You Must Have Been Watching A Different Show To The Rest Of Us !! All the Morbidly Obese Swan Did Was Sit On Her Substantial Arse, Avoid Doing ANY Type of Work Around Camp, REFUSE To Perform The Majority Of Challenges & Talk About People Behind Their Backs !! She IS A VERY Typical Lazy fat Slob & I Hope To God, That We NEVER See Her Fat Ugly Face On Our TV’S AGAIN !! BTW, I’m Sure There Are MANY Of Us Here That Will Take You Up On Your Offer, To Pay Us Do What The Ugly Duckling, Sorry, Fat Swan Did.

        Bob….I too find Chrissie Swan 2 faced and a back stabber but calling someone morbidly obese without walking a day in their shoes is very narrow minded….what if one day your wife had to have a radical hysterectomy because of cancer then had to take HRT for ruptured ovaries, all before she turned 45 and the post menopausal effect disrupted Her lifestyle ? ….judge people imaybe by their actions but not by their circumstances.

    I loved Chrissy.. She was great to watch and funny, and an honest Aussie.. I thought they all did a great role individually, you needed different personalities for entertainment, the only person we couldn’t stand was the the host Julia.. Sorry I hate to say it, but i really didn’t like her as a host at all.
    However well done to Freddie, Barry and Chrissie.. Well deserved.
    And I love Chissie now from watching I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

    I’m all for never seeing 2 faced Chrissie Swan ever again ….if she never appears on channel 10 again, I won’t have to boycott them…I don’t care about the other channels but if channel 10 shows her face again, I’ll start caring about the ‘other’ channels 😉

    Was it really filmed in Africa? Or was it out the back of Murwillumbah? Really, paying out on people is low, they all did a good job…all of them….my question is how did Daddo sneak chocolate through customs. FILMED IN AUSTRALIA
