Jackie Gillies puts 'sexist' Anthony Mundine in his place

Rebekah Scanlan

Anthony Mundine ruffled feathers as soon as he entered the I'm A Celebrity jungle last night, with sexist comments about female gender roles.

But the Aussie boxer was quickly put in his place by Real Housewives of Melbourne star, Jackie Gillies, who soon told him he'd be helping out with the chores.

Naturally fans erupted over the sportsman's outdated gender stereotypical views.

"Did he really just f**king say cooking and cleaning is a woman's job?" one wrote, adding it was "disgusting" and "sexist."

However there was a lot of love for Jackie, 37, who roped the traditionalist Mundine into doing the washing up.

Mundine had upset his campmates just moments after entering as the first intruder of the season, by saying he would "just kick back and relax while the women clean".

“I am bringing old-fashioned back. There’s equality but there’s roles," he continued. "The men hunt, the men provide everything and the women, they just do the domestic duties, that is all.”

Jackie shut him down immediately, saying, "Maybe in your world sweetheart but not mine."

While former Next Top Model finalist Simone Holtznagel was outraged.

“Are you serious?” she said. “Did you just get out of the 50s?”

As the first intruder, Anthony was declared camp leader on arrival and given luxury silk bed linen, pillows and a doona while the others were battling through without.

“I am very respectful," he responded. "I am the most respectful cat out there."
