Kerri-Anne tearfully quits I'm A Celeb after fiery clash with Dom: 'Selfish'

The TV presenter was slammed by viewers over her actions in the episode.

Kerri-Anne Kennerley tearfully quit I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! on Thursday night after a fiery clash with MAFS' Domenica Calarco, with the presenter claiming the reality star called her "the most self-centred b***h" she's ever met during a challenge.

The 69-year-old only lasted four days in the South African jungle, with the drama starting during an eating challenge with Ian 'Dicko' Dickson, Woody Whitelaw and Dom - which saw everyone in the group having to eat a variety of animal testicles in order to win dinner for the rest of the group.

During the challenge, a tennis racquet was spun to determine who would eat the testicles, however, at the end of the challenge, the team was offered 8 stars if everyone ate an antelope ball.

Despite the pleading from her team to eat the ball, and telling her it "tastes just like meatballs", Kerri-Anne refused.

Dom began getting fired up after she started to eat her ball, while Kerri-Anne kept saying she wouldn't participate.


"Oh, miss big contract lady, ‘Can’t tell me what to do'," Dom said.

"I can leave you my makeup," Kerri-Anne replied, referencing the fact that she was allowed to bring make-up into the jungle and Dom was subsequently outraged because she wasn't.

"Nah, I don't want it. I don’t want your Revlon 1989 lipstick, doll," Dom replied. "Why are you here, bro? Legit, actually, why are you here?

"Literally no respect or no decency for anyone else but yourself. I've never met anyone so self-centred in my life."

When she returned to the camp, Kerri-Anne described the "abuse" as "overwhelming".

The presenter told her version of events to the rest of the camp, before Woody, Dicko and Dom would have a chance to share their version.

"To be called the most self-centred b***h she's ever met. And the contract queen time and time again. I would have finished, if she would have finished. It was never going to happen," she tearfully told the camp, saying it wasn't fair that she had to compete in three trials in a row.

She added, "I've made a choice, it was a hard choice because I'd love to stay. But it's never going to work. I thought it was very unfair, I got three trials in a row."


Kerri-Anne then said the infamous words, "I'm a celebrity... get me out of here!"

Dicko, Woody and Dom returned to the camp, telling their version of what went down, with the former MAFS star revealing, "It was pretty clear that Kerri-Anne was not going to make an attempt."

"I don't apologise for the way I felt during the situation. I think I could have spoken better," she said. "But the lack of team effort and support at that time, it was completely selfish. It felt like, what are you even doing here? I don't know why she didn't say the words before we got to the task. It was a waste to me that she was never going to attempt to eat the ball."

Viewers slam Kerri-Anne

Viewers were quick to slam Kerri-Anne for her behaviour in camp, with one user writing, "KAK putting the failure on Dom when she never had any intention of even trying and playing the victim to the rest of the camp to turn them against Dom before bailing while the other celebs cry over her fake sob story. Disgusting."

"Why did KAK bother going onto #ImACelebrityAU?" another user questioned. "No team player. Totally selfish. She may once have been labelled an icon, but she’s now an entitled has-been who deserves little respect."

"All Dom said was should never met anyone so self-centred in her life," a third added. "She didn’t even call her a b***h. Such low lies to get sympathy KAK."

"Lucky for KAK that she had a decent career when she did cause she wouldn’t survive with today’s cancel culture," another said, referencing her numerous controversial comments.
