I'm A Celebrity's Iain Lee admitted that his fellow campmates made him "feel uncomfortable" as the 'bullying' of the radio presenter went 'way too far'.
The 'nasty' trio of Dennis Wise , Jamie Lomas and Amir Khan took turns to attack Iain as pressure mounts on show bosses to act.
Iain was ganged up on by the three male campmates including the boxer, who cruelly told Iain that his entrance into camp "did f*** a lot of things up" - with presenter Dec admitting it was "harsh".
Once Iain left for the trial, the 'bullies' blasted him behind his back - with Dennis Wise admitting he would go "ape s***" if he returned with no stars.Read More

Georgia ' Toff ' Toffolo was disgusted after overhearing the gang slamming Iain as their 'bullying' stepped up to another level.
The initial incident, which was uncomfortable viewing, started around the camp fire when a discussion about Stanley's departure quickly turned sour.
Out of nowhere, Amir turned to Iain and said: “On a serious note, when you came in you did f*** a lot of things up.”
A confused Iain, who looked at Amir, replied: “Thanks Amir.”
“Remember you came in and you bossed us all around, you split the camp up,” said Amir.
Iain, who was put in late by producers and told he was jungle president, said: “Thanks Amir, that was my choice, you’re right."
Talking in the Bush Telegraph, Iain admitted: “Amir was being an a**hole, just prodding me and making all these jokes, it wasn’t funny, it made me feel uncomfortable.”

Viewers have accused the campmates, including the departed Rebekah Vardy , of 'bullying' Iain during their time in the jungle but this is the first time he's revealed his discomfort.
Amir continued: “Your attitude as well, you killed us, do this, do that”.
Amir rubbed Iain’s arm and apologised, before his little sidekick Dennis came to the boxer's defence.
“He’s only joking,” said Dennis, before a shaken Iain admitted: “Yeah, I know, I’m not finding it very funny."
Speaking to Iain, Amir said: “I think you could win it, you know when a guy goes from bad to good.”
“Oh Amir, please mate,” replied Iain, hoping that Amir would just drop the conversation.
Talking in the Bush Telegraph, Amir said: “What Iain was doing was giving all this to everyone which was making me look small so I like to remind him what he was like.”
After Iain went off to do the latest trial, Jamie, Dennis and Amir gathered together to slam Iain behind his back.
Jamie asked why Iain pretended he didn't want to do the trial, while Dennis admitted he hoped his "point" yesterday had got through to him.
When Amir asked what would happen is Iain returned empty handed, Dennis said: “I’m going to go ape****, I don’t think he will though."
“If he’s playing a game, he might do just to p*** us off,” said Amir.
Jamie was also adamant Iain had a game plan, with Dennis suggesting he deliberately performed badly in previous trials.
Dennis said: “I think he’ll get the stars, he’ll do it today because it’ll be good for him to."
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, the timing for him it’s perfect, he’s the good guy,” said Amir.
But Toff, who overheard the conversation, defended Iain and was confident he was being himself.
