Things might have started out harmoniously in this year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity’, but it would seem relations in camp have since taken a nosedive, with two contestants now close to throwing in the towel.
Over the weekend, The Sun reported that producers were worried Larry Lamb would walk away from the show entirely, after eliminated contestant Danny Baker said the former ‘EastEnders’ actor was desperate to go.
Since then, former campmate Lisa Snowdon has added that Carol Vorderman is similarly desperate to leave the show.
She said on Monday’s (28 November) ‘Good Morning Britain’: “Carol is ready to leave as well.”
However, she also dismissed claims that either of them would walk, adding: “Larry won’t leave [voluntarily], none of them will… but they are ready to go.”
In the past few days, Larry has gone from the laid-back top dog of the camp to a slightly more tense character, after rowing with ‘Homes Under The Hammer’ presenter Martin Roberts.
He even went as far as branding his competitor a “a fucking lower middle class snob” following yet another argument in camp.
Last year’s series saw Lady Colin Campbell withdraw from the show of her own accord after two and a half weeks in camp.
Although this was initially said to be for health reasons, she later suggested she’d been “bullied” by campmates Duncan Bannatyne and Tony Hadley, which they both vehemently denied.
