I'm A Celebrity: South Africa favourite Paul Burrell has lifted the lid on an allegedly bitter feud between several of his big-name cast mates as the pre-recorded series concludes this evening.
The former royal butler, 64 – who last week introduced OK! to his breath-taking home, which holds a framed royal wedding cake and unseen letter from late employer Princess Diana – admitted that the 2023 series' WhatsApp group has recently decided into chaos.
Following his eviction from Ant and Dec's much-loved ITV reality show earlier this week, Paul opened up on contentious relations which have seen campmate Janice Dickinson excluded from the chat.
"We’re all in the WhatsApp group except Janice," he told The Sun. "Janice is not in the class of 2023 for obvious reasons."
Ahead of tonight's grand finale, he claimed the "legends" have been trading swipes at one another as they watch their series – which was filmed last summer – air on television.
Revealing they all say, "Wow, I didn't know that happened", Paul explained that watching what went down in South Africa play out on their screens has bought out some people's true emotions.
Paul said: "Now we’re watching it all and we’re seeing the context of everything, we’re constantly texting each other saying, ‘Oh you did that. Wow’. I do have rumbles to have."
Speaking of his turbulent relationship with American former model Janice, 68, who hit out at Paul on the show for having snuck contraband into the camp, he said: "She threw me under the bus with the coffee. I had been giving her a nice cup of Butler's Roast by the fire every morning, sipping it very slowly and looking at me and winking."
He described his co-star as a "wild card in the camp", adding "we are all a little bit scared of her".
Paul also spoke of co-star Fatima having ruffled his feathers over the matter of the coffee, after he claimed she complained about her rule-breaking campmates on the show whilst secretly enjoying some contraband goods of her own.
As well as Paul, Gillian McKeith unpacked a whole host of kitchen essentials when she arrived into camp, but ex-Olympian Fatima failed to see the funny side of the matter, admitting she was deeply unimpressed with her behaviour before telling Paul he too had brought shame upon himself.
He has since said it was a "bit rich" for the athlete to have hypocritically accused him of breaking rules.
Paul told the publication: "I have found out from Gillian recently that she had given Fatima some of her contraband mints. At the point when Fatima is saying to me, "You have brought shame on yourself" all while she’s sucked on an Imperial mint! That’s a bit rich isn’t it."
Paul was last night eliminated from the running to be crowned I'm A Celeb's first ever "legend" winner.
