Duo hit out at Amy after getting booted off Celebrity camp

The Olympic swimmer and the 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' actor were both voted off the ITV reality show in the second double eviction of the week, and upon exiting the jungle 24-year-old Rebecca hit out at her former campmate Amy Willerton.

She said: "I'm such a team player and Lucy [Pargeter] is the biggest team player of all.

"So, I think [Amy's behaviour has] bothered me and Lucy more than anyone else, because we're both such strong team players. We thrive being in a team more than as an individual.

"I think it's just affected us that someone has been selfish in that way, to bring in loads of stuff that no-one else has. It's unfair."

Alfonso approached Amy in the jungle last week and attempted to get her to hand over her contraband, a concealer, and he last night admitted the Miss Universe Great Britain winner – who escaped the public vote once again – has had some selfish moments on the series.

He said: "When I spoke to Amy, it was simply about giving her the opportunity to not hang herself by not coming forward with what she had.

"At the end of the day, I looked at Amy and said [she] is a young woman who doesn't see the world outside of herself that well.

"She is not able to see that sometimes you have to put other people before [your]self."

Despite being disliked by many in the camp, Amy managed to win six out of seven stars in her Bushtucker Trial last night, which saw her have to crawl through tanks of spiders and snakes before having to jump into a tank of water and remove stars from various compartments.

Earlier this morning, Rebecca took to her Twitter account to thank her fans for voting for her.

She wrote: "Ahhhhh I'm out!!!!! Food has never tasted so good! Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who voted for me! Means the world to me!!! Thank you xx (sic)"
