Ian Wright and James Haskell discussed Father Christmas on last night's episode of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! fans were left fuming last night after Ian Wright and James Haskell's bizarre chat about Father Christmas.
The conversation took place before the second 'reckoning' on Thursday's show, during which the campmates discussed the festive period.
Rugby player James revealed that his parents 'spoilt him rotten' and made a huge effort to make Christmas magical.
He said: "I had footprints on the carpet. Half-eaten mince pie. Carrot teeth marks in it."
James then added: "When the girls were really younger, I was Father Christmas as well."
Even though the chat did air before the 9PM watershed, many parents did slam ITV for airing the conversation, as it forced them to have 'difficult' conversations with their confused kids.
One parent fumed: "Ruining Christmas for kids everywhere spoiling the Santa secret".
Another added: "Really disappointed tonight at #ImACeleb to find Ian and James discussing their childhood and suggesting that Santa isn’t real! Now to try and avoid my kids seeing this episode on catchup #kidsloveimacelebtoo #shouldcomewithawarning #christmasruined".
A third said: "Let my little man stay up to watch and they're talking about SANTA & childhood. I just did a serious jump up & dance around the room to hide the convo".
