He explained, “I can honestly say, first night in The Clink, I woke up traumatised.

“But I had no one to blame but myself. I was even questioning, should I be here?”

He continued, “A robin flew in. I felt something. That robin’s here to see me. We chilled for a bit.

“Yeah, I was thinking that robin came with a message and all that message is is everything’s going to be OK.”

It was just earlier this week when the show had similar accusations after it was reported that the stars had been receiving luxury items in secret, despite it being claimed that this year's series was the toughest yet.

Despite Emmerdale actor Danny Miller complaining that the castle was so cold it had "icicles" coming out of the shower, a source said, “The castle itself is really cold, but the shower does get warm enough to be more than comfortable to wash in.

“There are certainly no icicles forming on the shower head as mentioned. Bosses can flick the hot water on in a second, just like your average punter can with their boiler at home.”
