I’m a Celebrity: Rebekah Vardy said Iain Lee has a ‘game plan’ [ITV]
The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star has called Joe Swash “a weasel” after feeling “forced” to make controversial comments about fellow campmate Iain Lee.
Jamie Vardy’s wife left the ITV series on Monday night, and in a later chat she told Joe Swash Iain was “fake”.
It came after Rebekah and campmate Amir Khan suggested Iain had a game plan – with fans hitting out at them for “bullying” the star.

But Rebekah has now claimed she did like Iain, appearing to take back her comments of him not being genuine.
And after Joe referred to her as “basically a man” for hanging out with Dennis Wise and Jamie Lomas, a source told The Sun: “Becky came off the ITV2 show absolutely livid. She was ranting and raving at staff over Joe’s comments.
“She made her feelings totally clear and is going to do so on screen again tonight. Becky called him a ‘weasel’.

“She expected Extra Camp to be light hearted and fun – which it is – but ended up feeling like she had her back to the wall and was cornered and forced to talk about Iain Lee.
Rebekah previously claimed Ian was playing the sympathy card after he revealed he signed up to the show to pay for his mum’s car home fees.
But on Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain she said she had been ‘”under pressure” during the live interview after her elimination, and her words were “taken out of context”.

“That was slightly taken out of context . Do you know what, Iain and I had some really really nice conversations.
“We’d spoken about what we’d been through in our pasts, and I gave him a lot of pep talks.”
Rebekah added: “We actually presented him with something, I’m not gonna tell you what. It was for his courage and his bravery for doing one of the trials because he conquered one of his fears.”
