I’m a Celebrity bosses are said to be worried that jungle stars Harry Redknapp and Anne Hegerty could walk out of camp, after the pair have grown tired of living with Nick Knowles.
The TV presenter’s competitive spirit is rubbing Harry, 71, and Anne, 60, up the wrong way, sparking fears they could ask to leave the show altogether.
A source has claimed that the pair are finding jungle life tough – and their personality clash with Nick, 56, isn’t helping matters.
“Producers aren’t showing people how bad it is but Harry is very uncomfortable and hungry, meanwhile Anne has had enough,” a show insider told The Sun.

Nick Knowles has been rubbing the pair up the wrong way
“Nick has to be involved in every conversation and is p*****g everyone off. He’s too competitive.”
Viewers saw former football manager Harry come close to breaking point on screen, after accusing Nick of talking “b******s” during a recent episode.
Harry said about Nick’s attitude towards the immunity challenge: “All this cobblers about we don’t care who wins is a load of cobblers.”

And The Chase star Anne even took to the Bushtelegraph to urge viewers not to save her when it comes to the public vote.
She pleaded: “Seriously please vote to save everyone else tomorrow, please don’t worry about me.”
Anne had previously told Doctor Who actor John Barrowman and Inbetweeners star Emily Atack that she wanted to leave camp, but didn’t want to let them down in the immunity challenge.
She said: "I really want to leave but I don’t want to let you down, I feel conflicted because we already aren’t going to have dinner tonight and I don’t want immunity. Neither of you are going to go."

Meanwhile, Anne has sacked off two Bushtucker trials by uttering the famous words: “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here!”
Speaking about Anne and Harry potentially leaving the show, an insider has told Mirror Online: "The daily show reflects life in camp."
Anne’s brother Jon recently revealed that his sister – who has Asperger’s Syndrome, will be “overwhelmed” by the support she has received from the viewing public.
Jon told Daily Mirror: “There’s been a real positive reaction to Anne being on the show, one of the reasons she went on was to raise awareness of autism.
Nick’s competitive nature has upset some of his fellow campmates
“I think people misunderstand Aspergers, but I think people are seeing her for who she is, she is being herself and she is a really good person and people are seeing that.
“I think Anne will proud, overwhelmed and really surprised. I think she’ll be pleased because she’s been trying to raise awareness for a long time about Aspergers. I’ve no idea how far she can go, I think being here this long will be a real victory for her.”
