Fans rally to support Fred on I’m A Celebrity after Nella’s dad comment.

The latest episode of I’m A Celebrity has left viewers shocked as an argument between Fred Sirieix and Nella Rose unfolded. The tense exchange has prompted fans to take Fred’s side after Nella expressed her anger at him over a comment he made in a seemingly casual and funny tone.

As the contestants continue to endure life in the jungle, it’s clear that the pressures of the environment are starting to wear thin and tensions are running high. The adverse weather conditions and the grueling challenges are taking their toll on the campmates, and it’s becoming apparent that people are getting on each other’s nerves.

The confrontation between Fred and Nella came to a head when Nella expressed her anger towards Fred after he made a comment about being old enough to be her dad. Fred was taken aback by her reaction, and although he did apologise, fans overwhelmingly agreed with him.

Nella made her displeasure known by refusing to engage with Fred when he attempted to offer her rice. In the Bush Telegraph, Nella explained her side of the story, stating, “Last night after dinner, Fred made a comment about him basically how he could be my dad. I took offence to that because one of the first conversations we had together was me opening up about the fact that my dad’s passed away.”

Feeling hurt and disrespected, Nella went on to confront Fred about her feelings, expressing her frustration at his behavior, particularly in regards to her desire for creativity around the campfire and her food preferences.

“You turned around to me, with an attitude and said, ‘You know I could be your dad, right?’ To me, I don’t care how you said it to me, it’s disrespectful and I don’t want to talk to you. I don’t want to be around you,” she shared.

Nella further explained, “You hurt my feelings. I was very upset… you keep trying to speak to me when I don’t want to speak to you. I would rather stay away from you, I don’t want to eat your food, I don’t want to talk to you. We can just live, you live on that side, I live on this side.”

Following Nella’s outburst, Fred approached her and offered an immediate apology, expressing his regret and acknowledging his unawareness of the offense he caused. He explained, “I am so sorry. First of all, I am sorry I’ve offended you. I am unaware that you felt offended. I am unaware that what I said would lead to this conversation, I only said that in a way because I am older than you, I am 51 and you’re 26.”

Despite Fred’s heartfelt apology, Nella remained dismissive, accepting the apology but making it clear that she did not wish to continue their friendship, stating, “I accept your apology but let’s not be friends. How about that?”

The confrontation sparked a strong reaction from fans, with many rushing to Fred’s defense and expressing their support for him. Some took to social media to voice their opinions, with one viewer commenting, “Fred did absolutely nothing wrong. She is making such a big deal out of nothing. [Bleep] sake. She is such a child. Get her out now!!!!”

Another fan agreed, saying, “Wow Nella trying to cause drama and problems for that reason? [Fred] was simply saying he was old enough to be her dad, nothing more! She is absolutely ridiculous!”

Several other viewers echoed similar sentiments, acknowledging that they believed Nella had overreacted to the situation and that Fred’s comment was meant in a non-malicious manner.

As tensions rise in the jungle, the dispute between Fred and Nella serves as a clear example of the challenges faced by the campmates as they navigate the pressures of camp life. As the show continues to air, viewers remain engaged in the unfolding dramas and conflicts within the camp.

Overall, the argument between Fred and Nella has sparked a strong reaction from fans, with many expressing their support for Fred and criticizing Nella’s reaction. As the show continues, viewers will undoubtedly remain engaged in the ongoing storylines and conflicts within the camp.
