Tennis champ Bernard Tomic is delivering the drama for I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, already close to quitting the show after just three days.
After volunteering to take part in a skyhigh trial, he battled high winds and impaired vision, but unable to contain his nausea, he quit the challenge after gaining three out of the 10 available stars. Removed from the trial, medics were on the scene.
He later revealed he was ready to quit the series to return to tennis competition.
“This is the jungle, this is so different. Not what I expected, I don’t think I can do it,” Tomic said.
“There is no point in me being here anymore and wasting unnecessary time for myself because I need to be out there playing and competing and I feel bad because I just met this bunch of people and you guys are super,” he said.
But his co-stars encouraged him to forge ahead.
Meanwhile TEN is copping criticism for Anthony Mundine’s homophobic statements ahead of his arrival on screen, as well as admitting, “I just kick back and relax while women cook and clean. That is my attitude.”
The TEN series launched well on Sunday with 1.25 million metro viewers up 14% in Total People in 2017.
