I’m A Celebrity’s Kerry and Danny clash over Australia Day


She has shared her fair share of salacious Hollywood gossip while in the South African jungle on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

But Kerry Armstrong turned to more political territory on Tuesday, when comedian Fiona O’Loughlin brought up the topic of Australia Day.

The discussion began in a light-hearted way, with Shannon Noll suggesting that ‘meat pies, AFL and campdrafting’ were the most prized cultural aspects of Australia.

But when Kerry, 59, suggested that the date for Australia Day should be moved from January 26th because it coincides with British colonists invading Aboriginal land, boxer Danny Green wasn’t impressed.

‘It’s not a day that is going to go away. So when would you like to move it to?’ Danny asked Kerry.

‘Any other day,’ she replied. 

Danny then said: ‘Hang on one sec. What doesn’t make sense is you either scrap the day altogether and no-one ever came here and colonised the lands.

‘So you can put your head in the sand and say this place was never colonised and never celebrate it. Or a day can be celebrated.’ 

‘I have a weird feeling if you were an Aboriginal, that when those special people came… you’d want to move Australia Day,’ Kerry snapped back.

‘If anyone is complaining, there is a good reason for it.’

By this point in the conversation, the other members of camp were beginning to watch on awkwardly. 

‘Kerry, I was raised well and truly with my father teaching me about Indigenous culture, who respect them, the traditional land owners,’ he said.

‘I’m well across it. I have no interest in getting in a politically skewed conversation.’

They ultimately decided to end the debate because neither of them were going to ‘see eye-to-eye’.
