Jungle star Amy Willerton has said she suffered a meltdown as she watched the other ‘I’m a Celebrity’ female contestants turn against her.

The 21-year-old beauty queen and model said she broke down in tears when she watched the show after her jungle eviction.

Willerton said Emmerdale actress Lucy Pargeter and Eastenders favourite Laila Morse ignored her in the camp and that she was disappointed Olympic swimming champion Rebecca Adlington sided with them.

“Lucy and Laila were having a go at me from the start. They turned on me and ripped me to hell,” she told the Sun. 

“At first it was just the eyes and the looks. I was thinking, ‘There is something wrong here.’ And then the more Becky sided with them, the more I felt frozen out.”

Although the three women were angry with Willerton for sneaking contraband in the form of a concealer stick into the jungle, she said they used that incident as an excuse to dislike her.

“I don’t think she’s disliked [in camp],” Morse said of Amy on her eviction.

“She’s got a different background, she’s been brought up differently I think, whereas we’re just ordinary people.”

Lucy Pargeter also took the opportunity on her eviction to talk about the model: “Going into this was all about teamwork. We’re going in as team and if one person doesn’t do that it’s going to pee me off.”

Although Amy said there “was no romantic spark” between herself and reality TV star Joey Essex, she will visit him in Essex as a friend.
