“I really don’t see what the problem is.”

I’m A Celebrity Australia is serving up some seriously juicy moments (and we’re not talking about the wichetty grubs). 

On Sunday night’s episode, former Love Island star Justin Lacko shared his personal musings about people’s weight. 

“The only thing I don’t like about people who are big, is if you complain about it,” Justin shared. 

Unsurprisingly the chat didn’t go down too well with his fellow celebs. 

But the drama doesn't end there. 

On Tuesday night’s episode, Justin found himself in the middle of another heated conversation. Only this time, he was the subject of the chat. 

During the show, Justin told Angie Kent and Richard Reid that he no longer speaks to his grandmother after she told his mum that he was “in the closet”.

"It’s just like… to hear that from my nanna,” Justin said to his campmates, “It sounded like my nanna was telling my mum who I was… and my mum didn’t even stick up for me.”

Richard pushed Justin on the issue, pointing out that many people speculate on Justin’s sexuality,

“If you don’t mind my saying, a lot of people do think you’re gay,” Richard said. 

He went on to question Justin about why he cut off communication with his grandmother.

“You feel like your grandmother should have asked you directly if you were gay?,” he asked. 

“I absolutely feel like that she should of,” Lacko responded, “If she felt like it was something that she wanted to talk about in general.”

Richard pressed on telling Justin, “Unless she’s done something else to wrong you, I think for her to ask the question… that other people have asked heaps of times, I don’t see what the problem is unless you felt it was mean-spirited?”

“Someone’s sexuality is none of your business,” Justin said, “I don’t feel like it’s anyone’s business unless I choose to say it myself.”

The conversation appeared to upset Justin who shut down further questions from Richard. 

“Anyways I think I don’t want to talk about this anymore, because obviously I don’t think we are going to see eye to eye,” he said, adding, “I don’t want feel like I’m sitting here and then I’m going to have two people disagreeing with me.”
