I’m A Celebrity’s Ant McPartlin accused of ‘misgendering’ Caitlyn Jenner


Ant McPartlin has been accused of ‘misgendering’ Caitlyn Jenner on tonight’s I’m A Celebrity.

Some I’m A Celeb viewers were convinced the Geordie presenter used the pronoun “he” when referring to the transgender reality TV star.

This came after a clip of Caitlyn claimed she was “still milking” one performance at the Olympics 45 years later.

Dec impersonated Caitlyn with an American accent, leading co-host Dec Donnelly to say: “It’s great isn’t it.”

I’m A Celeb fans have accused Ant of replying: “He’s good.”

This came after Caitlyn spoke about her transition and getting her first DWF or “driving whilst female”.

Caitlyn said: “I thought I was gonna transition before I was 40, I didn’t want to be an old chick but this is the latter 80’s and I never felt like I fitted in anywhere, I was trying to figure myself out, running around town.”

When comedian Andrew Maxwell asked what she meant, Caitlyn confirmed she was “cross dressing running around”.

Caitlyn said: “Yeah, at the time, I had a turbo Porsche and it was like the day before Halloween and this car pulled up beside me and it’s my next door neighbour, I said I was going to a Halloween party.”

Rugby star James admitted everyone should “feel comfortable to do it however hard it is because 99% of the time it’ll work out alright”.

“All my life I struggled with all of those,” confessed Caitlyn.

James asked Caitlyn if she had a music track she played whilst driving around town, Caitlyn laughed and said: “Yes, Aerosmith’s Looks like A Lady”.”.

The camp then burst into song and started singing the hit track.
