Nigel Havers would've "strangled" Lembit Opik to death if he had remained on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!".
The "Coronation Street" star infamously fell out with the former politician during their time on the Australian jungle-based reality show in 2010, and eight years on he admits he would've "done everyone a favour" if he had murdered Lembit in cold blood.
He said: "If I'd stayed there I would've killed somebody ... his name was Lembit Opik, something like that.
"I was just about to murder him, which would've done everyone a favour I know. Great for ratings.
"It was very simple, I was just going to strangle him in the night.
"I really meant I was going to kill him."
Fortunately for Lembit, Nigel left the jungle early, and the soap star's experiences have now put him off watching the show.
Speaking on "Good Morning Britain", he added: "I do not watch it at all."
The 67-year-old star dramatically quit the jungle just nine days into the show after objecting to a Kangaroo Court task in which contestants were given electric shocks if they failed in the trial.
He fumed: "I'm not up for it, I don't do electric shocks so I'm leaving. I cannot waste another second of my life. I will probably do something drastic like probably go.
"If you are gaining something, that's a fantastic thing. But if you're not gaining something."
But Nigel previously admitted he found Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder "interesting" on the show.
He said: "There was a guy from the Happy Mondays - he was great. I remember him telling me that he's taken every drug known to man apart from petrol. He was very interesting.
"But apart from that it was boring."
