It's all a bit messy, isn't it?

Many of the campmates – namely Tony Hadley andDuncan Bannatyne – have been quick to slam Lady Colin Campbell’s claims that she was bullied while taking part in* I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here,* and now ITV have also rejected her version of events.

Lady C (as she was known amongst campmates) left the jungle unexpectedly earlier this week firstly saying it was due to medical reasons, but later claimed that she felt bullied by the others and that drove her to remove herself from the competition.

After leaving the jungle, she threatened to take legal action against Tony and Duncan who she felt victimised her the most.

She told the* Mail on Sunday: *

“I visited producers to complain about the bullying. I don’t know how often – several times a day. In the end I pointed out that I was going to take steps. I realised that the button to press was legal, and my goodness did it work.

“I meant it and they knew I meant it. I don’t speak out of the orifice upon which I’m sitting. My name is not Tony, it’s not Duncan, and it’s certainly not Yvette.

“I knew that this was making great television but I had not signed up to be bullied. I won’t tolerate bullying in any shape or form, nor will I allow anyone to take advantage of me. I never have and I never will.”

The 66-year-old also claimed that ITV did not provide her with orthopaedic bed that she needed and requested.

Releasing a statement to the Mirror newspaper, ITV said:

"Producers responded fully to Lady C's medical requirements by giving her the camouflaged bed, which viewers saw was placed on her bed, and by giving her a hard-backed chair to sit in that was also featured on the show. As has always been the case what viewers see is a fair and accurate representation of what goes on in camp."

"No one who has left the camp so far has said she was being bullied. Indeed, it was Lady C who resorted to name-calling and offensive remarks in her exchanges with Duncan and Tony."

What do you make of the claims? Was Lady C the bully or the bullied?

The jungle's finest shower moments:


I'm A Celebrity: The best, worst and most NAKED jungle shower scenes of all time - Myleene Klass, Mark Wright, Katie Price, Amy Willerton, Joey Essex and MORE!

Gemma Collins, 20141 of 9

Gemma Collins, 2014

Curvy girl Gem was the first celeb to strip off for the famous jungle shower in this current series, giving us many LOLs at her hilarious squeals and groans at the cold water.

Helen Flanagan, 20122 of 9

Helen Flanagan, 2012

Flanny whinged her way through every single challenge, at one point quitting before the challenge had even begun because the idea of getting in a giant empty hamster wheel made her ‘a bit panicky’. However she managed to win the, errr, hearts of many in her itsy-bitsy blue bikini.

Matthew Wright, 20133 of 9

Matthew Wright, 2013

Myleene isn’t the only contestant to don a white bikini on the show. The controversial talk show host showed us that he knows how to work his curves, à la Ms Klass. We bow down to you, Mr Wright.

Katie Price, 20094 of 9

Katie Price, 2009

No I’m a Celebrity shower gallery would be complete without the assets of Katie Price, aka Jordan. Katie knew exactly what she was doing when she stripped down to a frilly red bikini and lathered up her bod in her second stint in the jungle.

Mark Wright, 20115 of 9

Mark Wright, 2011

When we weren’t enjoying Mark’s solo shower scenes (the man looks like a human Ken doll), we were obsessing with his flirtatious fling with glamour girl Emily Scott. Our ultimate fave moment has to be Mark emerging butt naked from the jungle pool as a lustful Emily looks on. Join the club, Scottie…

Ashley Roberts, 20126 of 9

Ashley Roberts, 2012

In 2012, former Pussycat Dolls Ash made jaws drop across the nation when she took a dip in the pool. Doncha wish your girlfriend could work the jungle shower like her?

Gino D’Acampo, 2009

The Italian stallion wasn’t shy about baring his naked bottom (which we didn’t mind at all). Room for one more in there, Gino?

Amy Willerton and Joey Essex, 20138 of 9

Amy Willerton and Joey Essex, 2013

She’s the beauty queen of GB, he’s Essex royalty. Watching the love blossom between these two exceptionally beautiful specimens was one of our fave TV moments of 2013 – especially when they jumped in the shower together. We can’t decide who we fancy more.

Myleene Klass, 20069 of 9

Myleene Klass, 2006

Ms Klass is undoubtedly the queen of the jungle shower. Her infamous white bikini sold for £7,500 on eBay, which she donated to the victims of the Fareapak savings scandal.
