We see the I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! stars doing pretty much everything, from eating an array of testes to emptying the dunny. But according to the show’s latest evictee, there’s a lot more happening behind the scenes that doesn't make it to air.

And, luckily for us, former BBC Breakfast host Louise Minchin dropped a bit of a bombshell in her exit interview with Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly last night.

Speaking about who she wanted to win in Sunday’s final, Louise said, “There's only one Frankie...she can do it for all the women and girls". She then went on to admit that things are very different behind the scenes.

We, er, Just Can’t Get Enough of all this gossip.

See what we did there? The Saturdays reference? No? Ah, we're wasted on you lot.

Louise told Ant and Dec about a secret feud that's been brewing in the castle which resulted in an argument earlier that day; with all three admitting that things are "very different" between camp mates once the camera’s have stopped rolling.

Unfortunately no names were mentioned 👀. Hmm.

So far this series fans have witnessed Naughty Boy’s arguments with Snoochie Shy and Kadeena Cox and tensions between David Ginola and Arlene Phillips. But with many of those celebs having already been voted out, who could the feuding pair be?

With the news not coming as a shock to Ant and Dec, it seems very likely that we will see the argument - and perhaps clues about the secret feud - in tonight’s show.

The GC proved she was a true diva in 2017 after walking out of camp after just a few days. Getting thrown into Jungle Jail and being fed just porridge proved too much for the star.

Who could forget Strawberry-gate? In 2017, Iain Lee and Amir Khan shamelessly ate the camp's dingo dollar prize – strawberries and cream - before getting back to their campmates. Amir let his "friend" take the blame and the whole camp turned against Iain.

In other I’m A Celeb news....

Naughty Boy (who’s actually quite nice, tbh) recently spoke to everyone’s favourite hun Lorraine about his experience on the show; from those arguments to his threats to quit.

Lorraine asked, "In there you're cold, you're hungry, you're exhausted, there's obviously going to be a few niggles and I think that's all it was, wasn't it?"

The star responded, "It was like a teething process, you know? Just getting used to it. To be honest, this is the longest period I've spent away from mum for the last couple of years and I kept thinking she was probably missing me and that combined with getting used to The Clink, I think that might have thrown me a bit because I wasn't expecting that."

He went on to discuss why he threatened to quit the show after spending the first few days in The Clink with Arlene Phillips, Danny Miller, David Ginola and Richard Madeley.

"I have no regrets about going in and I'm so grateful I saw it through after The Clink," he said. "It was very difficult for me and Arlene because we didn't know when we were leaving. I'm glad I made it to the castle otherwise I would have had regrets because that whole experience shaped me and shaped my journey."

He added, "I think I had the experience I was supposed to have with the trials and the people that I met. Friends for life, Arlene, David. It was a blessing in disguise."
