The Chase star claims that the “protective” DIY SOS starh voiced his concerns with I’m a Celebrity production staff about the contestants' welfare during his time in the jungle, but the tense scenes were edited out of the show.

Anne, also known as The Governess, told the Metro: "I don’t think they’ve seen how protective he gets with the other campmates, and how he’ll have blazing rows in the Bush Telegraph if he thinks the rest of us are being put at risk in any way."
