Marc Bannerman admits ‘I’m a rat’ in new footage from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Speaking after leaving the jungle, where he formed a close bond with singer Cerys Matthews, Marc says: “I just developed feelings for someone in there and I’ve got a missus at home, I’m a rat. I can’t look for a scapegoat – the buck stops here.”

Filmed arriving at his hotel and seeing his clothes hung up by his girlfriend Sarah Matravers, the former EastEnders actor said: “Is this where she’s been staying? There’s her dressing gown, and she’s done my stuff. I can’t even look at myself.”

Later, he watched clips of himself and Cerys, saying: “I feel sick, I feel for [Sarah] man, watching that. I feel really stupid.

“There wasn’t any relationship between us in any kind of way, anyway I can see why Sarah went home.”

He also told former campmate Katie Hopkins after the eviction: “I’ve been caught on camera saying I love Cerys.” Asked if he meant it, he replied: “I don’t know”.

Cerys has arrived back in Britain and wouldn’t divulge whether she planned to meet Marc. She has said she’d been upset he didn’t meet her in Australia after her eviction.

She said: “I was disappointed because I’d had that letter saying he might come back. I wouldn’t be honest if I said otherwise.

“I loved being with him – it was a pleasure to get to know such a lovely human being.”

Footage of the campers after they left the jungle will be screened on I’m A Celebrity… Coming Out on ITV1, Tuesday, at 9pm.
