It sounds like things were even more dramatic than we thought...
I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is always a bit of an emotional rollercoaster.
Now that it’s all wrapped up for another year – and with a new Queen of the Jungle crowned – we’ve been left with a pretty big hole.
But, as it turns out, we might not have seen everything that went down in the Australian jungle.
Martin Roberts, who was a latecomer to the series, has opened up about his experience during an appearance on ITV’s This Morning. The 53-year-old fell out with Larry Lamb and Danny Baker during his time in Oz, but now he’s hinted that even more went down – and we didn’t get to see it.
Talking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, the TV presenter explained the full story behind his run-in with Larry, saying, ‘I got in the car with my wife after the jungle and she told me some of the things that Larry had said that I didn’t know about, like the middle class snob thing and was really trying to get the rest of the group against me.
‘Then I asked her if she had seen certain things and she said they hadn’t been shown but I know they can’t show everything, so I forgive them for that.’
Reflecting on the moment that he came face-to-face with Larry for the first time since their confrontations, Martin said: ‘So by the time I arrived at the hotel… there’s this reunion, and the last person I expected to see there was Larry.
‘But I thought I’ve just got to put this behind me and give him a hug, but I was not feeling that inside and I think some people could see that.’
He later added, ‘…it was the last I was probably going to see them and I just grabbed Larry and hugged him.
‘And I kept hold of him and said this is a real hug, and he just broke down in tears. He said, “I am so so sorry about the way I acted towards you, and I am so sorry about what I said”…’
Looking back on the experience as a whole, he said that the ‘overall experience of the jungle was so positive.’
