I’m a star. Get me out of here! is being dogged by a possible bullying scandal after fans expressed concern over Chris Moyle’s treatment of Owen Warner.
With season 22 of the hit ITV show in full swing, the celebrities are getting to know each other and audiences are following their every move.
But after just six episodes, some fans have pointed out what they describe as “bullying” by Radio One DJ Chris Moyles, 48, who cracked a few jokes about Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, 23.
“Bullying” Scandal: I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is being dogged by a possible bullying scandal after fans expressed concern over Chris Moyle’s treatment of Owen Warner
Some have argued that his jokes were a “charade” that went unnoticed due to the intense focus on Matt Hancock popping up in the jungle, his constant attempts at bushtucker, and the whiffs of roommates.
The youngster hasn’t engaged in the intense talks surrounding Matt Hancock because he said he doesn’t know much about it.
He told the Bush Telegraph it’s because “because I don’t really follow politics” – and surprised Chris when he said he didn’t know who the radio star was.

Chris took advantage of the situation to crack a joke, telling the actor he was a world-class dancer who’d won three British Championships – only for Owen to take his word for it.
He also didn’t recognize Sue Cleaver and Boy George.
One fan tweeted: “Obviously this is all about Matt Hancock but the fact that Chris Moyles was bullying Owen with this charade has gone unnoticed.
“It’s not bants, it’s not big, it’s not smart, grow up.”
Another added: “Chris Moyles makes my blood boil. I can’t stand that man, especially what he’s doing to Owen.”

Another similarly posted: “I’ve watched #ImACeleb and can’t understand why Chris Moyles gets to get away with bullying Owen.”
Another user wrote on Friday night’s episode: “Please let George fail on at least one – the man is mean. I’m sick of Chris Moyles mocking Owen for fun, too #ImACeleb.
Another wrote: “Hope Chris Moyles doesn’t take it further. It’s funny right now, but could become an awkward watch, especially if the other housemates find it hysterical at Owen’s expense. It could be Chris’ downfall.”
Tension? Someone tweeted: “I’ve seen #ImACeleb and can’t understand why Chris Moyles gets to get away with bullying Owen.”
In 2008, the Radio One presenter got caught up in a similar controversy after she was accused of bullying Nicola Roberts after saying he found all the members of her band Girls Aloud “apart from the red one”.
He also called her “horse chops” and a “sour-faced old cow”.
She hit back at the time, speaking to Heat Magazine: “That argument doesn’t bother me anymore. I outgrew him – he’s six years old.
“I don’t care what he says about me, but what bothers me is that a lot of people are bullied because of how they look or behave – they feel shit for not conforming to how society wants them to be.
