I'm A Celebrity war continues as Lady C slams Duncan Bannatyne and Tony 'Creepsville' as 'rats'

Lady Colin Campbell has continued her war of words with Duncan Bannatyne, saying the Dragons’ Den star is a 'rat'.

Speaking on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! (opens in new tab) Coming Out, the author who was dubbed Lady C on the ITV show, opened up about her jungle experience.

She accused both the Scottish entrepreneur and Spandau Ballet singer Tony Hadley of 'bullying'.

“I’m delighted to be out of the jungle, not because of the jungle, but because of the rats that were in the jungle – Duncan Bannatyne and Tony Creepsville,” she said.

“They ganged up against me to shut me down and turn me out. They never gave up on the constant harassment and bullying.”

Businessman Duncan denied her claims.

“Lady C knows she wasn’t bullied,” he stated. “There was only one bully in camp and that was Lady C. She really is very silly.”

Responding to accusations of bullying, pop singer Tony said: “It’s completely not true and anyone who thinks I would bully a 66-year-old woman needs their head examined. I wish her well, good luck in life, but that’s the end of it.”

The controversial blonde was at the centre of numerous rows before she quit the show, just four days before Sunday’s final, on 'medical grounds'.

After her exit, cameras followed Lady C as she took in how the show was being received and how she was being portrayed.

The Jamaican-born writer is seen reading Lorraine Kelly’s column in which the TV star described her as 'ghastly'.

“She clearly doesn’t know anything about me. Who is Lorraine Kelly?” Lady C demanded.

Choreographer Brian Friedman asked Lady C if she had bumped into Duncan or Tony since leaving the jungle.



She told the former judge of The X Factor about a text message sent to her son, Dima Ziadie-Campbell.

“Nigora, Duncan’s girlfriend, text Dima last night and asked him, and by extension me, to join them for dinner. He’s just a complete p***y. Man-up, ask me directly.”

“I find it very easy to ignore people whose existence I refuse to acknowledge. The Tonys and Duncans of this world are no use to women like me.”



Reflecting on the way she had dominated the series, Lady C observed: “People are saying it’s going to go down in television history as one of the all-time greats.”

Viewers tuning into the show presented by Ant and Dec will see exactly what happened to each of the campers from the moment they left the jungle.

Lady C admitted: “Quite a few of us aren’t speaking to others, but that’s fine.”

Vicky Pattison, the newly-crowned queen of the jungle, said: “I challenged myself, I learnt things about myself and overall, I came out a winner.”
