Once again, Dennis, 50, and Jamie Lomas, 42, turned on Iain, 44, over the Bushtucker trials, suggesting he should bow out of future challenges for the sake of the team.
Viewers were furious, but Iain admitted that he simply felt “humiliated”.
After Jamie returned to camp with six out of the seven potential stars, attention soon reverted back to the heated spat from the beginning of the day.
However, Iain found backing from an unity source as Amir Khan, 30, confessed that he found Dennis’ approach went too far.
“It was true what Dennis said but I think he was a little too hard. Dennis should have said it a bit nicer to Iain,” the boxer sighed in the Bushtucker Telegraph.
Later, Dennis explained: “Maybe it came across in the wrong manner, I didn’t want to be rude about it.”
He added: “I tried to say it as it was and that was nothing malicious or nasty or whatever, I just said what I said.”
During last night’s Im A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, Ant and Dec were forced to step in and set the record straight after Dennis accused Iain of exaggerating.
Ant and Dec backed Iain all the way, in an unusual move for the Geordie duo.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV.
