Tears start to flow on Celebrity camp

Rebecca Adlington and Amy Willerton broke down in tears on yesterday's 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.

[comment]This isn't the first time Rebecca has shed some tears on the show.[/comment]

The Olympic swimmer let her emotions get the better of her during a minor row with outspoken talk show host Matthew Wright when she told him to keep the fire low as Westlife singer - and camp chef - Kian Egan has asked.

Matthew snapped at her: "I know what I'm doing. Stop telling me what to do. There's small logs so it burns through them quickly and becomes charcoal - it will be fine, it won't burn."

After Rebecca got tearful, the pair quickly made up, with her camp mate kissing her forehead and joking he smelt of rotting fish.

Rebecca later discussed the row in the Bush Telegraph, admitting she didn't know how to "handle" being yelled at.

She said: "I saw Matthew put a log on and I said that Kian wanted it low, and he kind of snapped. I'm 24 and I don't like to be yelled at. I don't know how to handle it, and I don't like it. I felt bad and got a bit teary-eyed. I know not to say anything now and keep my mouth shut."

Meanwhile, Amy was upset when she was unable to take on her part of the 'Grot Tub Challenge' as part of the 'Halfway Holiday' competition, which saw two teams search for letters in tubs of disgusting liquids.

She offered to take the third tub of meat and offal for her team, but Joey Essex - who had the second bowl for her group - failed to find the letters in his, meaning David Emanuel's team went on to complete the task before she even got into her tub.

The disappointed beauty later said: "I'm so gutted. I can't even hide it. I wanted it so bad, I'm disappointed. I do feel a little bit upset and it's something I really, really wanted, and I really wanted the opportunity to play for it and have a go.

"Joey offered to go in the hardest [tub], and I said, 'No, I've been going on and on about winning - I couldn't have you go in that one'."
