Mark Wright and Fatima Whitbread had to clear the air off-microphone after a jungle spat in I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!

The pair rowed after The Only Way Is Essex star Mark tried to keep the camp entertained with his own version of quiz show Family Fortunes.

Things started going wrong when Mark asked his campmates who his favourite footballer was and Fatima immediately answered David Beckham.

Mark said that was wrong and she told him: “Shame on you, he inspires young people.” The rest of the camp kept guessing until Fatima said ‘Redknapp’, but opted for the Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry instead of the right answer, which was his son Jamie.

A furious Fatima left the camp to calm down after telling Mark she was ‘allowed to have my opinion’ and that he should ‘be more respectful’. She returned and asked to clear the air with Mark, but made him take his microphone off so viewers could not hear what was said.

That did not impress Coronation Street’s Antony Cotton who told Mark: “That’s passive aggression and that’s not on. Why did she take away your mic? That’s taking away your voice.”

The former Olympic javelin thrower also managed to upset Lorraine Chase, who said Fatima was suffering from ‘a build-up of insecurity’.
