I'm A Celebrity's Martin Roberts teases Adam Thomas as he becomes an 'honorary girl'

Homes Under The Hammer presenter Martin Roberts became an “honorary girl” on I’m A Celebrity following the exit of Ola Jordan from the ITV show.

The TV star was invited into the girl camp by Scarlett Moffatt after Ola’s eviction, which just left three women to six men.

Martin agreed to become a girl to the dismay of Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas who jokingly yelled “you’re finished”.

Martin was delighted to be invited by the girls. Speaking in the Bush Telegraph he said at school he had always been picked last so it was nice for a change.

And he immediately took to his new role, teasing and gossiping about Adam.

He called the girls over to tell them some gossip in front of Adam, whispering that he thinks the actor shaves his chest.

Adam pleaded with Martin to tell him what he said but to no avail.

Talking in the Bush Telegraph, Adam said: “He’s talking about me and he won’t tell me what it is but all the girls know. Now I’m getting really paranoid.”

Again he pressed Martin on what he had said, and again he refused. Martin certainly knows his girl code.

Martin’s approach won him a lot more fans.

But with the way the show’s going, it might not bode well to become a girl.
