'I'm A Celebrity' Contestant Lady Colin Campbell Brands Tony Hadley 'Pretentious', 'Bully' And 'Fat Blob' During Blazing Row Over Beetle

Tensions were fraught in Saturday night’s ‘I’m A Celebrity’, with Tony Hadley erupting in a furious row with Lady Colin Campbell.


Tony felt compelled to tell Lady C exactly what he thought, after she put a jungle beetle in the fire, telling her he thought she’d been “really cruel”.

Unsurprisingly, she was unimpressed with his comments, bluntly responding: “You are a pretentious piece of shit and I’ve had enough of you, if you say one more word, I am going to take it further, I’ve had enough of you.

“You are a misogynistic bully. You are a chippy oik and I’ve had a belly full of you.”

The Spandau Ballet frontman was unrelenting, though, insisting she shouldn’t have put the critter in the fire, to which she told him: “Do not address another word to me, you are not going to continue to harass me without accepting the consequences. One more word and that’s it. I’m cooking your blasted boost.

“You are a hypocritical, pretentious arsehole. You are not only a bully you are a liar, man it up boy, I’ve had enough of you.

It didn’t take long before a full-scale jungle argument broke out, with Lady C telling Tony: “You fat blob, it’s none of your fucking business, arsehole. You arch hypocrite, a chippy oik with the brains of a pea and the mouth of diarrhoea.

“You may be impressed with who you are you are so used to creeps and dolly birds and tarts in awe of you because you can sing, I mean sing… you don’t even have a particularly good voice you are certainly no Carreras.”

Her outburst prompted even Kieron Dyer, who has been her confidant throughout the series, to admit he could no longer defend her.

Confiding in Chris Eubank, Kieron said: “That was brutal. He didn’t warrant a response like that, I was shocked, I can’t defend her, I refuse to defend her.”

So far this series, Lady C has rubbed almost all her contestants up the wrong way, with Yvette Fielding branding her a “rude horrible woman”.

Following Susannah Constantine’s departure on Friday night, the second ‘I’m A Celebrity’ elimination will take place during Sunday’s show, at 9pm on ITV.
