Peter Daicos I'm a Celebrity

Why I’m a Celebrity’s Peter Daicos thought he was going to be branded a “villain”

"I'd love to know what everyone thought"

I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here’s Peter Daicos had genuine concerns that he would be branded the series “villain” and it’s obvious he’s been watching one too many episodes of Married at First Sight!

Speaking to Chattr after his April 15 elimination, the former AFL star admitted that he was concerned by how he would be portrayed after making a comment during contraband #LipGlossGate!

“I’m really looking forward to looking at everything and seeing how everyone was,” Peter said. “I’d love to know what everyone thought of us within the camp. Did they make me look like a bit of a villain or…? Not that there were any confrontations!”

The 63-year-old then recalled how he stepped in during the snafu between Candice Warner and Skye Wheatley in Week One, where Candice told the camp Skye was hiding lip gloss.

“I think I even said I’m gonna buy her the most expensive lip balm just to get a bit of peace!” he said.

Thankfully, Peter came out completely unscathed and just like Skye branded him upon his exit, was known as “Daddy Dai-care”!

Peter Daicos’ and his relationships with Skye and Callum

It’s no secret that the father-of-three forged some wonderful friendships at camp, admitting that “he will see some more than others”, but there were two who have a special place in his heart, the youngest campmates Skye, 30 and Callum Hole, 26.

“There were great conversations,” he said. “They could bring themselves up to my level or I could bring myself back to their level. There was a fantastic level of maturity.”

Speaking particularly of Callum he said: “After the second day I’m thinking, ‘This can’t can’t be for real.’ I thought to myself, ‘He’s putting it on’. He’s got that personality! Well, I’m here to tell you, he did not stop! The only thing that held him back was food!”

Adding to this, Peter said he’s looking forward to bringing Callum to Melbourne.

“I said to him, when you come to Melbourne, you ring me and I’m taking you to a [AFL] game,” he said. “He’s never been to a game. I told him, ‘You’re going to fall in love’. I’m going to brainwash him. He’s going to be a Collingwood supporter, and he’s going to be a great mascot for the club.”

Awww, we love you, Peter!
