The conversation took place before the second 'reckoning' on Thursday's show, during which the campmates discussed the festive period.

He said: "I had footprints on the carpet. Half-eaten mince pie. Carrot teeth marks in it."

James then added: "When the girls were really younger, I was Father Christmas as well."

Even though the chat did air before the 9PM watershed, many parents did slam ITV for airing the conversation, as it forced them to have 'difficult' conversations with their confused kids.
