Joe Bugner's Cia Claim
Joe Bugner has already infuriated his fellow 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' contestants by suggesting Aids was ''created by the CIA'' in scenes which were cut from the show.
Joe Bugner infuriated his 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' team mates by saying Aids was "created by the CIA".
The former heavyweight boxer - who entered the camp after 'Strictly Come Dancing' star Camilla Dallerup walked out of the jungle just three days into the reality show - infuriated campmates when he made the outrageous suggestion on Wednesday (18.11.09).
ITV bosses cut the scenes from the show because they were worried about a backlash from viewers.
Interior designer Justin - who is in a relationship with fellow contestant Collin McAllister - was particularly angry and let off steam in the show's Bush Telegraph room after the incident.
He said: "Joe's made me feel really uncomfortable with his comments about Aids and the CIA. But I'm going to bite my tongue on this occasion and pretend it never happened."
A show insider said: "Joe's caused a lot of conflict since he arrived. He's a real wind-up merchant. He loves getting a reaction from people."
The 59-year-old - who has fought Muhammad Ali - previously admitted he's terrified of snakes and bugs.
He said: "I've never slept under a jungle canopy and I'm worried about all the creepy crawlies and things so I'm not going in as a happy man."
