I'm A Celebrity: Duncan Bannatyne and Lady C fight… But will George Shelley be the first to walk?

Businessman Duncan Bannatyne (opens in new tab) called Lady Colin Campbell (opens in new tab) a “nasty woman” during a row over soup on Saturday night's I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!

The author, dubbed Lady C on the ITV show, had purchased a can of soup from a vending machine using dingo dimes the contestants had earned.

However, she clashed with the former Dragons’ Den star over whether to share it with the hungry camp mates in Snake Rock, who had been living on a diet of beans and rice for three days.

The Croc Creek team had returned to camp following their successful live Bushtucker Trial win. Their reward was a luxurious feast, which they were not allowed to share with the members of Snake Rock.

“Shall we all agree that we offer them a quarter of the tomato soup?” asked Lady C.

“No, they can have the whole bloody tin,” Duncan replied. “They’ve been starving for three days and we’ve got the banquet.”

Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley (opens in new tab) tried to make peace, but Lady C turned on him.

She then called the former Dragons’ Den (opens in new tab) star a “mouse” and a “little p***y”.

He accused her of a “lack of breeding” and added: “What a nasty woman you are.”

But the argument continued even after the businessman branded her “the most selfish person” he had ever met.

Meanwhile, as losers of the trial, Snake Rock’s penalty was the Trailer of Torment. The celebrities had to sit in a trailer full of snakes,

cockroaches, spiders, flies and maggots. They were also played a video of Croc Creek enjoying their banquet, which Jorgie Porter (opens in new tab) couldn't bear to watch.

"They've got cheese!" Jorgie moaned.

Later, though, Union J star George Shelley (opens in new tab) broke down and cried on fellow Snake Rock camp mate Susannah Constantine (opens in new tab)'s shoulder.

"Just cry," she told George. "Just get it all out, OK? I don't care if I've got snot on my shoulders."

And he did.

"I wasn't expecting this," he told her. "I wasn't expecting to feel like this about it. It's not the challenges, it's not that. It's just the living."

"Are you feeling a bit trapped?" Susannah asked him.

"Yeah," he said.

"What I do when I feel like that is, I don't think about how many days I've got, I literally just think about now."

"I don't want to give up," George added. "The only reason I'm staying is because I don't want to give up. I don't want to let people down."

"You know what? It's not about them," Susannah told him. "They're not in here. If you give yourself the freedom to think: 'You know what? I can walk if I want to' then it might make you feel better."

"Thank you so much for that," George told Susannah.
