I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here: The outrageous sex confession they couldn’t air on TV

The outrageous I’m a Celebrity moment they couldn’t air on TV: How a contestant BEGGED producers to edit out their sex confession for a very surprising reason

The executive producer behind I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Australia has lifted the lid on a celebrity sex confession that was too scandalous for screens.

Alex Mavroidakis of ITV Studios told the TV Reload podcast that a contestant once admitted to cheating on his wife on camera, then begged producers to edit it out.

‘There was a series where a celebrity told a story in camp about a girl he had been with. And he talked about specifics, in terms of what he had been doing on that day, what time of the year it was,’ Mr Mavroidakis said.

‘He just outed himself!’ Alex Mavroidakis, the executive producer behind I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia, has lifted the lid on a celebrity sex confession that was too scandalous for screens.  Pictured: I’m A Celebrity hosts Dr Chris Brown and Julia Morris 

‘He then came running up to the Tok Tokkie [camp diary room] straight after that conversation and was… saying, ‘It’s OK for you to use that scene, but please don’t say the time or the place. Because I’ve just realised I was still married at the time’,’ he continued. 

‘So basically, he just outed himself!’ Mavroidakis mused. 

The show’s producers went ahead with the scene, but edited out certain parts so as to hide the star’s admission of infidelity.
