I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'s Paul Burrell has hit out at Janet Street-Porter over comments she recently made about him.

The royal butler and journalist both starred in an early series of the ITV reality show, with Burrell returning for the all-star South Africa series that aired over the last few weeks.

As the latest series aired, Street-Porter reminisced on Loose Women about being in the jungle with Burrell, and stated that they didn't really get along, and felt like she only "tolerated" him.

In an interview with Slingo, Burrell revealed that he isn't exactly fond of his former campmate either, stating: "Had Janet Street-Porter come down that tunnel, and I'd say this to her face, I might've gone out the back door, I might've screamed: 'I'm a celebrity, get me out of here!'

"I think there might have been sparks. She's an anti-monarchist, I'm a monarchist and I think there's a huge gap between myself and Janet Street-Porter. Is she my nemesis? Only if I let her.

"I hadn't met her before I did the jungle but I've met her many times since and she's still as annoying as she ever was. I think she'd like to wrap her hands around my neck, but there you go, it's a love-hate relationship."

Burrell also admit that he had a "rumble" with Janice Dickinson in the latest series, believing that she was "rude to everyone" and "doesn't pull any punches".

He also stated that there's a WhatsApp group for the South Africa version's cast, but Janice has left it.

I'm a Celebrity… South Africa can be streamed on ITVX.
