Amy Willerton's father Bruce has spoken out about his daughter, saying it has been an "emotional rollercoaster" watching her on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!.

Bruce Willerton is currently in Australia waiting for model Amy to finish her stint in the jungle and he says he couldn't be more proud of her.

Last night, Amy was shown attempting to clear the air with Emmerdale actress Lucy Pargenter, who she had wrongly told was "a campaign of hate" against her.

Host Lorraine Kelly asked Bruce whether he thought any of the campmates were picking on Amy, but he said viewers shouldn't "judge a book by its cover".

Bruce replied: "It's hard to tell. We see what you see. Within the camp it's almost like a vacuum in there. The emotions and the things they're going through are kind of different.

"You can't judge what's going on in there - it's almost like judging a book by its cover. There's a lot going on in there and until such a time when I can see or speak to people, I wouldn't actually know exactly what's going on in there at the moment. I wouldn't really want to comment any further to be honest."

Meanwhile, Bruce also confessed to becoming a fan of The Only Way Is Essex's Joey Essex, who has been tipped to win the series.

"I think Joey Essex is a big favourite, I do like Joey by the way," Bruce said. "I hadn't watched TOWIE before but I might give it a try, my girls said it's very good and they were fans before [I'm A Celebrity]."

While speaking live from Queensland, Australian, Bruce also batted off suggestion that Amy has been "lazy" around the camp.

Laughing, he said: "I think she's been herself, it's been lovely to watch. Actually it's been lovely but also an emotional rollercoaster shall we say? I'm really proud of her.

"She's done really well and she's been Amy… When she's at home she tends to let us do the washing up for her.

"She's got her own flat in London and whenever I've left a cup lying around she's made me wash it up so it's kind of hard to judge."
