Lady Colin Campbell claims she was "run out" of the 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' camp by Tony Hadley and Duncan Bannatyne.
The 66-year-old star shockingly quit the reality show yesterday (03.12.15) on "medical grounds", but she's now revealed the real reason she decided to leave was because she felt she was being bullied by the Spandau Ballet singer and the former 'Dragon's Den' star.
She said: "After it became apparent I was getting all of the attention it caused a tremendous amount of bad feeling in the camp and then it became increasingly difficult.
"Tony's refusal [to be chambermaid as part of a task] became personal because I was a Lady with a capital L. Had I been asked to be chambermaid, of course I would have done it, I am a sport. And I don't have a chip on my shoulder.
"I think there were so many arguments because Duncan and Tony had taken the decision to shut me up, shut me down and run me out of the camp."
The royal biographer praised retired footballer Kieron Dyer and former boxing champion Chris Eubank for standing by her during arguments with the other campmates.
She said: "Kieron and Chris were wonderfully supportive, they showed themselves to be true gentlemen and I would hope we remain lifelong friends.
"There is no prospect of me ever having Tony or Duncan in my life in any way, shape or form.
"They have earned my disregard [and] they will have to live with it."
