Collymore quits The Farm

Stan Collymore dramatically quit The Farm today.

Stan Collymore dramatically quit The Farm today.

The shamed former footballer walked out on Channel Five’s rural reality show, complaining: “I’ve had enough.”

He claimed he could not stand to be around Vanilla Ice, whom he described as lazy.

This morning he flipped when Vanilla – real name Robert van Winkle – spent too long in the bathroom.

“Get him out!” he shouted at Rebecca Loos, who is this week’s Farm manager.

“F***ing on the toilet… does it not bother any of you?” he demanded of the other farmhands.

“It does, Stan, but what can you do? You can’t drag him off the loo,” said Debbie McGee, but Collymore was having none of it.

“I want him out working – and if he f***ing don’t, I’m off,” he stormed.

And with that he left, despite pleas from the other contestants.

“I’ve had enough,” he said. “It’s not what it says on the tin any more.”

The ex-Aston Villa, Liverpool and Nottingham Forest player also complained of missing his children and said he was disappointed that Terry Christian had been voted off last night.
