Dragons' Den star Duncan Bannatyne said Lady Colin Campbell is "not a nice person" as he exited I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!

The 66-year-old businessman received the fewest votes from the public and has departed just three days before the final.

During his interview with presenters Ant and Dec, he talked about his fractious relationship with the author who was dubbed Lady C on the ITV show.

"Some would say she's not a lady," he stated.

When the Geordie duo asked why there were frequent clashes, the Scottish entrepreneur pointed the finger at Lady C.

"Just little things. She was shouting at you, calling you names. It was unforgivable. I just started ignoring her."

He added: "She's very, very, personal. She's not a nice person."

Bannatyne ruled out any hope of a reconciliation.

"I think my life is better not having her in it. I won't see her again, no."

He paid tribute to the camp mates he left behind, but admitted: "It feels good to be out."

Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter managed only three stars for camp in the latest Bushtucker Trial.

The soap star, accompanied by former footballer Kieron Dyer, had 10 minutes to complete The Heist.

Porter was lowered into a lift shaft where she had to make her way through a bank vault and collect stars as she went along.

Dyer stayed above ground and communicated instructions via a headset.

But the two celebrities were not a dream team.

The camp mates discussed where they would like to be in 2020 and what they would change about themselves.

Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison, the bookies' current favourite to win, revealed her television aspirations .

"I'd also like to stop doing reality TV. It's not that I'm not grateful for the platform it's given me, but I'd like people to know less about me and I'd like to be a TV presenter," she said.

Dyer expressed a football ambition. "In five years' time, I'd like to be manager of Ipswich Town, my local club - although having to deal with 11 Kieron Dyers must be a nightmare," he said.

The Only Way Is Essex's Ferne McCann confessed to a cosmetic wish.

"I know it's really shallow and you should love everything about yourself, but I would love to change my nose," she revealed.

"People always make comments about it. I feel it takes over my face, I can see it when I look down. I'm grateful with what I've been given and try to make the best, but that's the one thing I'd like to change."

The 25-year-old added, "I'd love to do a radio show and I'd love to be in British dramas - I love Downton Abbey."

Spandau Ballet's Tony Hadley and Bannatyne took part in the Dingo Dollar Challenge, Barrel Of Laughs.

They had to empty glasses of red wine to reveal a joke, then dive into huge barrels of gunk to retrieve the punchline.

After obtaining the code and unlocking the cash, a correct answer from camp would secure a treat.

However, yet again, the celebrities got the answer wrong.

Union J star George Shelley and McCann participated in an overnight challenge to win a luxury breakfast for camp.

They had to sleep in a room full of alarm clocks. When a clock went off, they had 15 seconds to turn it off.

The duo had three lives, but an unsuccessful fourth attempt would result in a failure of the task.

They successfully completed the challenge.
