I’m A Celebrity’s Nick Knowles slammed for being ‘fake’ after giving up feast place

Poor Nick Knowles was slammed for being "fake" tonight after Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson felt that his generosity wasn’t genuine.

The DIY SOS presenter gave up his place at the feast after Rita Simons, John Barrowman and James McVey only managed to get 10 out of the 11 flags – meaning that one campmate wouldn’t be able to join the rest of the camp for a feast.

Initially, John insisted that he would give up his place.

"We got 10 out of the 11 stars but that means one person can’t eat and John is giving it martyr and saying he shouldn’t eat because he didn’t get the 11 th flag but I think it should be discussed," he said.

But Nick insisted: "In anticipation of this I’ve been thinking about it all day and as I’v e been in the unenviable position of not being able to help around the camp the decision is really easy."

John hit back by saying: "I missed the star and you guys got the full thing (in their trial)."

But Nick wouldn’t let it go, saying: "You have had a very physical day which means if you don’t get a good meal tonight then in two days time you’ll crash with it. I’m pulling rank on it, you had a big day and I didn’t."

In the end, John conceded defeat and said: "I’m not arguing because we are both obstinate and I don’t want people to argue so thank you very much."

Yet, appearing on spin-off show Extra Camp today, Sam argued that his actions weren’t genuine.

"I’m sure he’s a nice enough guy [but he’s] trying too hard to be a nice guy," Sam said.
