'I'm So Over Them': Perez Hilton Is Heading Into The Jungle To Break Up Charlotte Crosby And Ryan Gallagher
It has been the talk of the camp all season, but ‘I’m A Celebrity’ intruder Perez Hilton said breaking up Charlotte Crosby and Ryan Gallagher is ‘one of his goals’.
Speaking to 10 daily before heading into the camp, Hilton admitted he had done his homework on his future campmates.
“I’m going in pretty optimistic about camp life,” he said, “but I might clash with everybody!”
The controversial gossip columnist has made quite the name for himself around the world, even making headlines himself with some of his feuds.
“It’ll be fun, I’ll get to be a campmate but I’ll also get to do my job," he said.
"I’m going to be interviewing them all and trying to get juice… and maybe see if I can break-up Charlotte and Ryan. It’s one of my goals.”
Watching the will-they-won’t-they romance unfold, Hilton said he was “so over” #Rylotte, and he’s already begun cooking up a strategy to stir the pot with the pair.
“I can’t go in day one and put all my cards on the table, it has to be a bit of a slow burn and I have to decide what’s the better approach: to tell each of them directly as a viewer this is what I’ve seen, or is it better to plant the seeds in the ears of other campmates knowing they’ll tell Charlotte and Ryan?”
He admitted he has been leaning towards the direct approach, “because then they won’t think I’m talking smack behind their backs", before proceeding to rehearse his speeches to the pair.
“You know Ryan, people aren’t getting to know you or see you because it’s all about Charlotte, and Charlotte’s getting you PLUS more because she’s so good at reality TV,” he said.
“And Charlotte… you know, a lot of people out there are thinking the romance with Ryan is fake,” he said, “and it’s not a good look!”
While he’s definitely not afraid of ruffling a few feathers, and blocking a few campfire spooning sessions, Perez also wanted his new campmates to give him the benefit of the doubt.
“There are some people there who might know who I am and might have preconceived notions about me, I get that,” he said.
“It’s natural to have opinions and judgements, but having an open mind is also really important. See me for me. Get to know the real me, I’m not what you’ve read or what you think.”
