Speaking on ITV2’s ‘Extra Camp’ following Ola’s victory, James said: “Martin is good TV. He is bringing another dynamic to the show, which I think is a good thing.
“But if I was in the camp I would probably want to smash his face in.”
Ola’s win in the trial, which saw them drinking a host of jungle-based smoothies, not only meant she ousted Martin out of the luxury camp were he has been living for the last few days, but also immunity from the first public vote.
However, James claimed Ola will be more pleased to see Martin head back to the other camp, while she lives the good life in the other one.
“I think Ola was happier that she beat Martin than winning immunity,” he said. “I’m sure she’s over the moon she’s immune, but it was just Martin’s face when he lost. It was priceless!”
It’s not the first time James has made a joke about an act of violence towards Ola’s ‘I’m A Celeb’ campmates, as he previously issued a warning to the male stars if they flirted with his wife.
“It’s to be expected,” he admitted. “She’s a gorgeous girl and if they hit on her, they hit on her.
“Maybe I’ll smash their face in when they get out.”
‘I’m A Celebrity’ continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
