I'm A Celebrity's Ferne McCann has admitted she drove herself mad over Chris Eubank and the whole Purple-Gate incident.

If you remember, the TOWIE star was in tears during a task earlier this series after she and Chris were tasked with sending another pair of campers to Snake Rock. Chris suggested they send the purple team, so Ferne repeated that instruction...

But Chris then insisted he had said pink or Duncan!

Ferne had to repeat her and Chris' decision down the phone - he said purple but later said he'd said Duncan.

Ferne was left in tears thinking she had made a mistake, although viewers knew Chris had said purple.

And now Ferne knows too!

Speaking to Ant & Dec after finishing in third place, she said: "I feel like I've gone mad over this!"

She was then played a video of the moment Chris said purple, prompting her to exclaim in delight. "He said purple! I have been going mad! I was sitting there and everyone was saying, 'Ferne, you mucked it up! How did you get it so wrong?' Chris went to me, 'Purple and Duncan sound similar'. I said no they don't! But I thought if he said he said Duncan, then he must have said Duncan because who can argue with Chris?!"

Well, now she's been proven right! Go Ferne!
