I'm a Celebrity….Get Me Out Of Here! star Ruthie Henshall has revealed she actually had no idea there were so many microphones in the castle.
Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on Monday, West End star Ruthie admitted she thought she was off-mic when she made that "sh*gging Prince Edward" remark to campmate Shane Richie.
Ruthie dated the Earl of Wessex for five years in the early 1990s after performing in Buckingham Palace.
Ruthie seemed a little embarrassed as she explained she thought she had some privacy when she said to Shane: "Buckingham Palace, you sang in the gardens, I shagged in the bedrooms."

The star told Lorraine: "It is a long time ago, but there is a certain amount of it that you completely forget.
"It was my first day in there, and I didn't know that there were microphones everywhere, I know this sounds like a silly thing to say, but I really didn't.
"So the fairly crass thing that I said at the beginning, I said to make Shane laugh, and I had no idea it would actually go out.

"So I learnt my lesson!"
Asked who she thought could become King or Queen of the castle, Ruthie replied: "I'll tell you who has been a beauty all the way trough is G [Giovanna].
"Vernon [Kay] is just delightful and delicious, such a beautiful soul.
"Victoria [Derbyshire] – interesting, a grabber of life, Shane [Richie] – funny funny funny! Kept us in stitches – AJ [Pritchard], delightful.
Ruthie chatted candidly to Shane about her relationship
"The women in there -Beverley! I have heard all about Jon on there and being a megash*g!"
Ruthie became the second celebrity to be evicted from the show on Sunday night, after Hollie Arnold was the first star to get the boot on Friday.
"I absolutely thought it was my time to go last night, the people that are there are so beautiful and so worthy of winning," she said.
