Iain Lee has 'no beef' with camp mates

Iain Lee has "no beef" with any of his camp mates from "I""m A Celebrity... Get me Out of Here!".

Viewers of the creepy-crawly show have jumped to the 44-year-old presenter's defence on a daily basis over the past two weeks as they believed the likes of Dennis Wise, Amir Khan and Jamie Lomas were "bullying" him but the comedian is adamant he's friends with all of his now-former co-stars.

Speaking on "Lorraine" on Monday (11.12.17), he said: "I've made friends with everyone. I have no beef with anyone that's in there.

"Toff [Georgia Toffolo], Shappi [Khorsandi] and Jennie [McAlpine], they're the three that I got on with so well. Toff was easily the winner, she totally deserved [to win] and I'm so thrilled for her!"

However, the controversial star - who entered the jungle five days later than the rest of the camp mates - did struggle to make friends initially because the rest of the gang had already built bonds.

He explained: "I think one of the problems I had was coming in five days after everyone else had bonded. There was already a group that had been created and they were all friends and they all knew each other and then suddenly this guy comes in - along with Kez [Kezia Dugdale] - does a trial and then pick them instantly and split the group.

"I found that really stressful, dividing these people that'd built friendships and just wandering in and going, "Right I'll have you, you and you, the rest off you go" - it was horrendous!"

Iain - who came third in the competition - talked a lot about his mental health struggles in the camp and is hoping his openness will help tear down the stigma glued to depression.

He explained: "Suicide is the biggest killer of men between 17 and 45 I think, something like that. It's only by talking about it that we can get rid of the stigma and help save people's lives. I didn't want to make it all about that. I had a great time, I don't want people to think I was miserable for all of it. The last week in particular was a gas! It was so much fun!"

He added: "I was completely surprised to be in the final three.

"Every time Ant and Dec came into the camp and said Iain it's not you I still can't quite believe I came in the final three - it was a thrill."
