Anne Hegerty has revealed that fellow I’m A Celeb contestant Nick Knowles would clash with the crew whilst filming the Bush Telegraph when he felt that campmates’ safety was overlooked.
The Chase star, 60, explained that a lot of moments in the jungle haven’t been shown to the public, including the The 56-year-old DIY SOS frontman’s arguments with staff.
Speaking to the Metro on Friday, she said: ‘I don’t think they’ve seen how protective he gets with the other campmates, and how he’ll have blazing rows in the Bush Telegraph if he thinks the rest of us are being put at risk in any way.’

She added: ‘Honestly, from the conversations I’ve been having with people since I got out, I think there’s a lot of things Nick has been doing that have just not been shown.
‘People seem to know that candlewax was spilled on John’s gilet, but when I say, “Were you impressed by Nick’s scheme for removing the wax when the producers said they wouldn’t provide a new gilet?” they all go, “What scheme?”’
Having presented DIY SOS since 1999, Nick drew on his skills on multiple occasions to the delight of his fellow contestants, and he even made rope out of Rita Simons’ bed sheet when she was voted out of the jungle.

Speaking after his departure, Nick admitted he wanted to take part in the show to prove how people from all different walks of life could come together and live in harmony.
He explained: ‘I think the thing that surprised me is the tough bits you don’t see day to day like lugging the wood, but when I came here I wanted to see if a whole bunch of people could get together and make friends.
‘We’re having such a touch time in the UK, if we could all get together it might be a big pointer for everybody at home.’
