Sam Dastyari is BOOTED from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! after a fiery clash with Jacqui Lambie over Australia Day and minorities
Sam Dastyari was booted from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on Sunday night.
The disgraced former Senator became the second camp-mate to be sent packing on the Channel Ten reality show, with his eviction coming after a fiery showdown with co-star, Jacqui Lambie.
The pair – who are on opposite sides of the political spectrum – clashed over their opinions on changing the date of Australia Day, with Jacqui saying: ‘It’s about time the Parliament had a backbone and said ‘No, enough”.

Conservative Jacqui , who is of partial Indigenous descent, claimed that many Aboriginal people support keeping Australia Day on January 26.
The outspoken politician stated: ‘Many of us… you know what, we’ve let it go, get on with it. To us, it’s celebrating an inclusion of everyone’.
Sam stated that he was in favour of changing the date, claiming that the national day has become too divisive.

‘White people came and put up a British flag and said ‘This land is ours now.’ And then that was the start of… genocide. There were elements of genocide there,’ he proffered.
Jacqui refused to budge from her position, arguing that it was only a vocal minority of citizens who wanted the date change because they were stirred up by the media.
‘I think the media belts it up a lot more than it needs to be belted up,’ she said passionately.

The brunette then blasted: ‘I’m sick of minorities too, to be honest with you, I’m just sick of us all bending over for minorities!’
Sam’s Sunday night eviction from I’m A Celebrity isn’t the first emotional exit he’s had to make in the public eye.
The Labor senator humiliatingly resigned from politics in December 2017 after controversy over his links to wealthy Chinese donors.
