I’m A Celebrity 2010: Nigel Havers blasts Gillian McKeith, Linford Christie & Kayla Collins
Nigel Havers has blasted some of his former ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ campmates.
The Brothers and Sisters actor – who quit the show yesterday – branded Gilliam McKeith “controlling and touchy”, admitted he tired of Linford Christie’s constant talking and said Playboy model Kayla Collins comes from “another planet”.
He said: “There are two sides to Gillian. One is controlling and touchy, and the other is playing a game to get maximum publicity.
“I wished Linford would shut up but he’s bigger than me. I told him to shut up but he thought I was joking.
“Kayla didn’t contribute much. She comes from another planet, Los Angeles. There’s Mars, Jupiter, and then Los Angeles.”
However, the 59-year-old star had kind words for “elegant” Sheryl Gascoigne, “wonderful” Britt Ekland, and “strong and funny” Jenny Éclair.
Nigel also tipped Stacey Soloman to win.
He said of the former ‘X Factor’ star: “It would be a great result if she won it.”
Show bosses are said to regard the star’s exit as a huge blow for the show.
One insider said: “Nigel is a big loss. The producers tried everything they could to change his mind.
“But Nigel was sick of the conversation with the other contestants, he found most of them a little ignorant.”
