Boxer Anthony Mundine joins I’m A Celebrity cast


He’s the three time champion boxer who has some controversial views about men and women’s roles in the home.

And on Monday night Anthony Mundine, 42, landed in the South African jungle to join the cast of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and spelled out exactly what kind of athlete he is.

The loud-mouthed ‘camp leader’ said he would bring the ‘pizzazz’ and a little bit of ‘torment’ to the game.

‘I’m not domestic at all, that’s the woman’s job. We go hunting and eat the food,’ he admitted in his opening interview. 

But unfortunately, two minutes into entering the animal-infested shrubbery he was captured in a net – and not a single ‘domestic’ woman was there to help him down.  

The group was told about Anthony’s arrival, and his current predicament, so four members went with their pillows in hand to rescue him.

Yikes! But unfortunately two minutes into entering the animal-infested shrubbery he was captured in a net - and not a single 'domestic' woman was there to help him down

‘They swooped me up. Come on you mob help me out,’ he said, sadly, to Kerry Armstrong, Josh Gibson, Jackie Gillies and Shannon Noll when they arrived.

But to free him they were forced to shred their pillows in a wood chipper – something they severely regretted. 

‘I’m the man, they have to listen to me,’ the boxer said upon being released. 

Oh no! But to free him they were forced to shred their pillows in a wood chipper - something they severely regretted

Upon meeting the group back at camp, the world renowned boxer was quick to establish his position at the top of the food chain. 

‘I just kick back and relax and let women do everything,’ Anthony told the crew.

Bernard Tomic firmly agreed and admitted they just needed to do that but inside the jungle quarters.

Kath and Kim actor Peter Rowsthorn looked aghast and said: ‘He has gone hardcore traditional really early with these girls.’

When 80s pop star Tiffany came down with a headache later on in the day, Kerry became the group’s ‘spiritual leader’ and led the pain-filled singer through a chant.

‘I am enough,’ she told Tiffany to repeat out loud with her eyes closed, making model Simone Holtznagel laugh.

For Monday night’s Tucker Trial Bernard Tomic and comedian Fiona O’Loughlin decided to take on the challenge.

‘I’m so excited,’ Fiona said deadpan and sarcastically to the camera.

Dr Chris Brown and Julia Morris explained they would be undertaking an obstacle course but Bernard would have to wear goggles that make everything appear upside down.

Fiona meanwhile would be trying to direct her partner to a collection of stars.

After finally managing to secure a star, the hosts remind the bridge pair a storm is coming.

As Fiona clips a second star to her waistband, Bernard admits he’s starting to feel ill.

After grabbing the third star the 25-year-old fell from the platform and said he’d ‘never felt so light headed before.’

‘He was cold and clammy,’ Fiona told the remaining cast when they returned to camp.

‘I don’t think I can do it, I think it’s best if I go,’ Bernard said to the camera.

The hosts wondered whether he had issues with ‘failing’ and admitted he looked close to quitting. 

‘What’s freaking you out?’ Jackie asked, attempting to council the young tennis star.

‘Today I experienced the worst eight minutes of my life,’ Bernard confirmed.

He explained that he felt like he needed to go back out to the real world and compete because this was a ‘waste of time.’ 

‘I don’t think you should give up. Do it for your charity and yourself,’ Jackie said.

Meanwhile, Simone and Josh admitted they were both single – causing Kerry to say she felt like their chaperone.

Simone admitted to being very fond of Kerry – who grew up in Hollywood’s Studio 54 era – and hung on her every word around camp.

The hosts reappeared to announce Simone, Fiona, Jackie and Josh might be contestants in the next Tucker Trial. 

The winner of that particular advantage will be announced on Tuesday.
