Ferne McCann has claimed her I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! co-stars Lady Colin Campbell and Tony Hadley had to kept separate at the National Television Awards.

While doing the showbiz round up on ITV's This Morning today, which included speaking about I'm A Celebrity winning an award, the TOWIE star said: "Lady C was okay. We had to keep her separate from Tony."

She didn't give any other information.

Fans of I'm A Celebrity may not be that surprised as Lady C and Tony clashed in the jungle on the last series, and didn't seem to patch up their differences once they'd left.

If you remember, Lady C accused Tony and Duncan Bannatyne of bullying her, bringing back memories of childhood bullying. She also called them both "tiresome and boring old men."

Tony and Duncan, meanwhile, vehemently denied the bullying allegation.

"Georgie Campbell, when she came into the camp she was very funny very intellectual, she's a very clever woman," said Tony at the time.

"But then there's this other side to her - it's a real Jekyll & Hyde. She's meant to be a lady and the language was 'woah'. [The bullying allegation is] completely not true and anyone who thinks I would bully a 66-year-old woman needs their head examined. I wish her well, good luck in life, but that's the end of it."

Duncan had said: "Lady C knows she wasn't bullied. There was only one bully in camp and that was Lady C. She really is very silly. I have a wonderful life, wonderful children, amazing girlfriend. I'm not going to let Lady C come anywhere near me. She's insignificant, like a flea on an elephant's back."

At last night's NTAs, the I'm A Celebrity cast won the 'Best Entertainment Show' category. Ferne was there to accept the award, alongside Tony, Lady C, George Shelley, Vicky Pattison, Jorgie Porter, Brian Friedman and Chris Eubank.

"It was so good!" she said. "We won the award and it was really, really cool. I loved it and it was just a really good experience."
