In Wednesday (18 November) night’s show, the aristocrat and royal biographer told presenters Ant and Dec that she would not be able to take part in the ‘Panic Pit’ Bushtucker Trial, as it reminded her of a family member’s murder.
But with all signals pointing to Lady C being chosen by the public to do Bushtucker Trials for the foreseeable future, it has been claimed producers are nervous she might drop out of the series.

“She’s quickly emerged as one of the best characters of recent years. She’s already proved she’s worth her weight in gold as everybody’s talking about her.
“But she doesn’t suffer fools gladly and as soon as she thinks she’s being made to look like a fool, she’ll consider her place in the jungle very carefully… They’re trying everything to keep her in the jungle.”
Wednesday night’s episode also saw Lady C clashing with not one but two of her fellow campmates, first coming to blows with Brian Friedman, and then taking on boxer Chris Eubank.
Of course, it’s understandable that bosses would worry, given last year’s series, which saw Gemma Collins walking away from the jungle just 72 hours after making her dramatic entrance.
‘I’m A Celebrity’ continues on Thursday night at 9pm on ITV.
