Marion addressed the ‘knickergate’ drama, where John joined Noel in not wanting to pick up a pair of worn women’s underwear.
Marion said: "I don’t think he would bother to pick up someone’s knickers. No way. he washed mine."
John Snr. added: "He does do washing!"
Scott explained: "We go to the bathroom in front of each other. He’s not that uptight about knickers."

They were grilled by Kate and Ben
Friends and family members of the I’m A Celebrity campmates have started to descend upon the Australian jungle ahead of this weekend’s first elimination from the show.
Since arriving in Australia, Noel’s wife Liz Davies has dubbed him and Harry Redknapp “the Chuckle Brothers” – but has worries about her husband’s normally immaculate beard.
“My favourite moment was him doing the trials with Harry. They are like the Chuckle Brothers together!” she said.
The pair have clashed already in the camp
Liz, who travelled to the jungle with her son Harrison, said: “He will be brushing his teeth, flossing and grooming that beard; God knows what’s living in it now.”
She said she cannot wait to see him as it is the longest the couple have been apart.
“I think he is doing incredibly well, he’s got phobias of heights, creepy crawlies, he has tackled his demons and I won’t need to get the spider out of the bath anymore,” she said.
