I’m A Celebrity’s James Haskell comes under fire from viewers for mocking disability

James Haskell has come under fire after being accused of mocking disabilities.

The former England international irritated a number of viewers with his ‘club foot’ comments during Tuesday night’s episode.

The moment happened during the ITV show, when James’ campmate Ian Wright decided to jog around the camp to let off some energy.


Watching him running, James, 34, said: “He’s completley lost the plot”, before adding: “Look at that club foot.”

Club foot is a birth defect which causes one or both of the baby’s feet to point down and inwards.

One person commented: “I find it disheartening that being politically correct does not stretch to disabilities like Clubfoot.”


Another wrote: “I’m sorry, but I’m really disgusted by James Haskell’s comment about Clubfoot. Why is this acceptable? #ImACeleb.”

A third shared: “Disgusting language used by James in regards to clubfoot!! How can ITV let that be aired? Some children, including my son, have this condition and it is disgusting how he makes a joke out of it!!”
