Anyone watching I'm a Celeb?

How does Edwina get away with ogling Jake so visibly, and the comments she makes while she's watching him exercise etc?

If Foggy or Jimmy made similar comments about Nadia there'd be outcry!

She's coming across as leering and letchy , it's uncomfortable to watch.

There are some ads on the telly where women are oogling men which are equally bad.

Middleagedmotheroftwo Fri 05-Dec-14 17:44:49

Double standards. I'm no feminist, but she's getting away with things men would be crucified for.

Timeforabiscuit Fri 05-Dec-14 17:48:06

She seems lecherous, its not a nice trait - and yes the other people in camp appear to be behaving with surprising civility!

That being said a lot can happen in the editing room!

MistletoeAndWine111 Fri 05-Dec-14 17:48:54

Ew it's actually horrible to watch, makes me cringe! She sure is getting away with things that a man wouldn't be, I hope she goes soon, seen enough of her.

MishMooshAndMogwai Fri 05-Dec-14 17:59:05

Awful woman! Her and Vicky sitting like cackling bitching witches round the camp fire made my blood boil, I'm v surprised when Mel gets through another night without punching them!

Her whole attitude is patronising and 'oh darling, I was in politics I have seen/can do anything!'

Vile, cringey and outdated and completely not the feminist role model I thought she'd be!

I can't look at her without thinking of her and john major. Brain bleach needed.

MrsTerryPratchett Fri 05-Dec-14 18:02:31

I'm confused. Would being a feminist make you more or less likely to approve of someone objectifying another person?

whitesandstorm Fri 05-Dec-14 18:06:52

I have to say it's the first "I'm a celeb" that I don't find remotely interesting. All the previous ones have had me riveted. The choice of "celebrities" this year are dire. hmm

AliceinWinterWonderland Fri 05-Dec-14 18:24:55

I wonder if she realises how thoroughly she is embarrassing herself on television. I suspect she thinks she is being so very clever and funny. hmm

whitesandstorm Fri 05-Dec-14 18:29:06

I went off her when I saw her on a programme about welfare. Her hatred of benefit claimants was astounding.

Nancy66 Fri 05-Dec-14 18:31:44

Jake is a creepy old sex pest himself.

There have been plenty of men ogling the women in I'm a celebrity in the past.

Women really do have to be perfect these days, don't they, or they get shot down.

CaptainHammer Fri 05-Dec-14 18:42:07

I thought the same!

trufflesnout Fri 05-Dec-14 19:21:29

I'm no feminist

Are you serious?

Writerwannabe83 Fri 05-Dec-14 20:33:27

I was thinking the EXACT same thing OP.

SingSongSlummy Fri 05-Dec-14 20:40:28

Jake is a creepy old sex pest himself

Yes Nancy66, that's exactly what I've been thinking. He makes me want to puke.

NoArmaniNoPunani Fri 05-Dec-14 20:43:08

I haven't really warmed to any of this year's celebs.

Middleagedmotheroftwo Fri 05-Dec-14 23:04:50

Yes truffle. I am mist definitely not a feminist. Some people aren't.

MrsTerryPratchett Sat 06-Dec-14 01:49:58

You don't want equal rights, to be paid the same for the same work as men, you don't want access to contraception, equality under the law and access to education? Weird. Possibly having the vote offends you. You do understand that not all feminists are radical feminists, don't you?

Unless you're one of those surrendered, 18 Kids and Counting women. Then, fill your boots, you're possibly not a feminist.

NutcrackerFairy Sat 06-Dec-14 09:18:25

Yes Middle, what exactly does being a 'feminist' mean to you?

sooperdooper Sat 06-Dec-14 09:25:56

I've only seen one episode, when she was incredibly rude and patronising to Mel Sykes saying she wasn't/couldn't be an independent adult without a man, ignorant old boot

LadyMaryofDownton Sat 06-Dec-14 09:33:46

Oh it's so cring & embarrassing. I really don't like her one bit. She was never reputable & even less so in/after the wake of the John Major affair .

TheYuletideMovement Sat 06-Dec-14 09:41:14

I thought when middle posted "I'm no femininist, but" that she was joking like Ant does on the programme sad

NorksWar Sat 06-Dec-14 09:44:11

I haven't watched much of this series but have met Edwina and she was lovely.

Mel Sykes makes my blood boil. If she was a male celeb who had accepted a caution for domestic violence I doubt she'd be on the show. And she's annoying.
