Abbie Chatfield teaches Robert ‘Dipper’ DiPierdomenico the WAP dance on I’m a Celebrity… after calling him out for his ‘sexist’ remarks about her skimpy bikini
Abbie Chatfield had a tense confrontation with Robert ‘Dipper’ DiPierdomenico over her decision to wear a revealing bikini on I’m a Celebrity on Wednesday.
But the former Bachelor star, 25, and the retired AFL footballer, 62, managed to put their differences aside after their argument.
At the end of the episode, she taught Dipper the ‘WAP dance’ – a routine inspired by the Cardi B song WAP ft. Megan Thee Stallion, which Abbie perfected while spending 14 days in hotel quarantine last year.
They’ve got the moves! Abbie Chatfield taught AFL legend Robert ‘Dipper’ DiPierdomenico the WAP dance on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! The raunchy dance routine is based on Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s hit song WAP, which is short for Wet A** P***y
Dipper said he was game enough to learn the dance in front of his campmates, and Abbie began by teaching him to do a high kick.
He then followed her lead by getting down on all-fours and gyrating his backside, which left the other contestants in stitches.
TV presenter Grant Denyer said afterwards: ‘Mate, if you’d told me the 1989 premiership grand final-playing DiPierdomenico would’ve been doing the WAP dance in here, I’d have said, “No chance at all!” But there he was.’

‘The things I do for entertainment!’ he later said.
As Abbie showed him the final part of the routine, Dipper had to stop to take a breath, prompting her to ask: ‘Oh, are you okay?’
‘Yeah, I’m good, yeah,’ he replied, before the Bachelor in Paradise star wrapped up her masterclass and gave Dipper a high five.
Surprised: Grant Denyer told producers: ‘Mate, if you’d have told me the 1989 premiership grand final playing DiPierdomenico would’ve been doing the WAP dance in here, I’d have said, “No chance at all!” But there he was’
Abbie’s WAP tutorial comes after she confronted the ex-footballer over his ‘sexist’ comments about her bikini earlier in the episode.
After walking through the campsite in a revealing two-piece, Dipper commented: ‘How do you walk around like that? How can you walk around like that? We should do a G-banger day.’
Despite insisting she was wearing her ‘most conservative togs’, Dipper wouldn’t back down and joked: ‘You’re not going out like that.’

A frustrated Abbie then turned and asked him what he meant by the remark, and Dipper explained he was simply looking out for her in a fatherly way.
‘That’s been said to me like five times in here, and it’s not that it affects me, not that I’m thinking like, “Oh, I should cover up,” it’s just, like, I don’t want that idea to be pushed. It’s just not okay,’ she said.
‘I don’t want young girls or young women to hear that being said and think it’s normal and don’t feel like they can stick up for themselves.’
