Disgusting reason John Barrowman shaved all his ‘man bits’ before I’m A Celebrity

Fashions in male grooming have changed over the years – from the furry he-men of the Seventies to a sleeker look today, but I’m A Celebrity’s John Barrowman has got a better reason for adopting a smooth-skinned look than the fickle vagaries of fashion.

He’s worried about jungle insects getting tangled up in his body hair.

John Barrowman tells The Mirror that he has done everything he can to avoid being bitten in the jungle – and we mean everything.

He said: “I shaved all my man bits, my legs, my arm pits, my chest hair and my butt crack and so there is no chance of the critters getting caught in my man-hair.”
