Lady Colin Campbell's son Dima Ziadie has blasted Tony Hadley and Duncan Bannatyne for their treatment over his mother on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!

Dima has spoken out following Lady C's decision to leave the jungle, which was officially on medical grounds, but she has since accused Duncan and Tony of bullying her in the jungle.

Tony's rep slammed the accusations as "pure fantasy", while a spokesperson for Duncan said: "'To make accusations of bullying and biased editing is unbelievable and disrespects both the show, and the millions of fans who have tuned-in and voted night after night."

Now, Dima, 22, has told The Mirror: "I could see she was bullied because I understand my mum and she doesn't react or counter attack unless she is attacked.

"She won't start a fight if you don't throw the first punch. Once you throw the first punch she will counter attack."

Speaking with his mother's blessing, Dima said he believes socialite and author Lady C became a target in camp because of her class.

He said: "I think it was made into a class thing. She is not a snob, she doesn't judge people based on a certain class."

Dima has accused Tony and Duncan of bullying his mum.

Dima clarified his mother's comments, where she previously referenced the public as "oiks". Dima said it is a misunderstanding: "The word is defined as being for lower class but she would call an 'oik' to any level or class. That was misinterpreted from the beginning.

"Everyone has to make a living in life and it doesn't mean if you are from any background you have to conduct yourself in a certain manner. As we have seen on the show, some of them have conducted themselves disgracefully."

Talking about her conflicts in the jungle, Dima said the public haven't seen the real side to Lady C: "I think sometimes she does have her little outbursts when she is frustrated.

"Now she is out and the future is in our hands you are going to see another side to her. People will realise if they see her in the street she is a very humble person, she is down to earth. Old little mummy is sweet. She is a loving person and that is what people will start to realise."
