‘Get the f*ck over it!’ Helen Wood defends Nick Knowles and blasts ‘period moaners’

Friday 30th November 2018

Helen Wood’s on the warpath after I'm a Celebrity star Nick Knowles was branded ‘sexist’ for a comment about the women’s time of the month.

The TV presenter brought up Fleur East and Rita Simon’s menstrual cycle as the reason for them being a bit cranky, telling John Barrowman they are “going to be a bit jumpier because of what time of the month they told us it is.”

Some viewers were up in arms with the comment, branding him "sexist".

But Helen is backing Nick, saying he was only repeating what the girls had told him themselves moments earlier.

She said in her Reality Bite vlog: “This really bugged me. There’s always someone who has to pick up on some form of sensitivity.

“Nick Knowles mentioned—even though it had already been mentioned—that Rita and Fleur were on their period and he mentioned something about being that time of the month.

“So what? What’s the big deal? He’s only stating a fact. He wasn’t being sexist. Get the f*ck over it, seriously. He wasn’t doing anything wrong and everyone has picked at it. It drives me insane.”

Elsewhere Helen revealed that while Harry is still her—and the bookies'—favourite, she’s going to stick an outside bet on Rita being top woman (see odds below).

“Harry is a gem. He’s literally won the nation’s heart with his whole Sandra speech and how he is as a person.

“Favourite girl is Emily, which is totally understandable, I actually really like her.

"But I can't deny I really think Rita has a good chance of pulling that out the bag as well."
