Upset: Iain Lee seemed to backtrack on his previous denial that he wasn’t bullied on I’m A Celebrity after watching the spin-off show, admitting he hadn’t seen the comments made ‘behind my back’
She wrote: ‘A big thank you to Iain Lee for clearing that up & also for the ‘deliciously dark’ sense of humour comment
‘Lots of love to all of the 2017 campmates. It was a pleasure to share a camp with all of you. See you all soon xx’
But an unimpressed Iain responded: ‘I hadn’t seen the comments made behind my back or the ones made by some camp mates when they left.’
He added: ‘I still suggest the word bullying is too strong. But.’

Betrayed: Having watched the show, Iain hinted that he was hurt by some of the comments made about him ‘behind my back’, after Rebekah reached out to him on Twitter
During the show, Vardy vehemently denied the bullying claims and sobbed as she insisted she hadn’t targeted the broadcaster as part of a gang.
The WAG declared that she wasn’t a ‘ringleader’ – but was slammed by fans who caught her sharing a covert handshake with Amir Khan and Dennis Wise after Iain was voted out.
The Coming Out show captured the moments after the celebrities left the Australia outback – including their reaction to fans’ comments about them.
Overwhelmed: Rebekah Vardy sobbed as she insisted she hadn’t ‘bullied’ Iain Lee as part of a gang, in scenes from I’m A Celebrity’s Coming Out show
Rebekah emerged after the third vote off and the topic of Iain Lee was the first on the agenda.
Her father Carlos told her: ‘You’re right about lain, I know what you mean.’
Rebekah replied: ‘He can cut the mood in camp in seconds. It’s a shame that he feels he has to be like that, but who knows what hes going through, it’s hard to speculate.
Hmm: The WAG declared that she wasn’t a ‘ringleader’ – but was slammed by fans who caught her sharing a covert handshake with Amir Khan after Iain was voted out
Secret: Amir then turned to Dennis and shook hands with him as they watched the radio host leave the jungle
Backlash: Viewers were outraged by the handshake, branding the move ‘childish’ and ‘unnecessary’
Shrugging, she looked away and added: ‘I don’t care anyway.’
When a phone call to her management team revealed she’d been accused of ganging up against him, she was brought to tears in the arms of her father.
Surprised, she said: ‘You know what, I was the one that was being the most supportive of him. A bully? I’ve never been a bully in my whole entire life.’
Calling her husband, Leicester City footballer Jamie Vardy, she had a bone to pick with him.
Oh dear: When a phone call to her management team revealed she’d been accused of ganging up against him, she was brought to tears in the arms of her father
Gutted: Surprised, she said: ‘You know what, I was the one that was being the most supportive of him. A bully? I’ve never been a bully in my whole entire life’
Seeking solace: She hid her face in her hands as dad Carlos and her daughter Megan comforted her
She swiftly congratulated him on his 100th goal for the club, scored against Tottenham Hotspur, and declaring: ‘Stick that up your backside Spurs fans!’
But there was little time to enjoy the glory as she reprimanded him for voting her to take part in a trial.
Pulling no punches, she said: ‘Voting me to do The Hole you little w****r? You’ve no idea how bad they were! I can’t wait to see our phone bill.’
Rebekah was keen to discuss Iain with Dennis Wise right away, and the claims that they had bullied him.
Catching up: She later told Dennis: ‘I came out to the biggest s**t storm. . Something so strong has been said about not just me. You, Jamie, Amir. That we were part of a gang’
Interesting: The pair then watched a clip of an interview Iain had done before entering the jungle, in which he joked that he liked to cause problems among people
Not impressed: Dennis hinted that this confirmed his suspicions that Iain was playing a ‘big game’ and ‘trying to promote himself’
She said: ‘I came out to the biggest s**t storm. And you know I don’t get upset about things and you know I’m really strong but I actually cried in the car.
‘It really upset me. Something so strong has been said about not just me. You, Jamie, Amir. That we were part of a gang.’
Dennis responded: ‘I am gobsmacked with it. The reason being is because this is not the case. I’ll be surprised with Iain if he doesn’t clarify all of this.’
Right then: Dennis said of Iain: ‘It was a big game for him to promote himself, he’d obviously done it for certain reasons’
Opinion: Amir added: ‘He stated talking down at people. He built enemies. You know when you give someone a bit of power and it goes to their head?’
But Rebekah seemed unable to let it go, and later found Iain’s sister Jo Angell to defend herself.
Rushing up to Jo, she said: ‘Hi we need to talk. It’s completely been blown out of proportion. Honestly it’s not… I was trying to help him so much.’
Smiling, his sister said: ‘We will have a catch-up – cocktails.’
Not convinced, Rebekah insisted: ‘It really upset me,’ as she reassured: ‘Don’t worry about it, you were so brave.’
Claims: The boxer, 30, then insisted that Iain was ‘definitely playing the victim’
Not having it: Iain was quick to set the record straight upon leaving, saying: ‘There was no bullying going on. Let’s quash this rumour once and for all’
She later said to the camera: ‘I wasn’t a ringleader and I definitely wasn’t a catalyst to anything that was going on with him in there.’
The WAG came under fire, however, when fans caught her shaking hands with Dennis and Amir when Iain was voted out.
‘After seeing that handshake between Amir Becky and dennis seriously WTF?? I’m so glad they didn’t win,’ one viewer wrote on Twitter.
Another added: ‘That handshake between Becky, Dennis and Amir when Iain came out was so unnecessary and shows more than what they’ve said in their defence.’
Confused: He added: ‘I always got on with Becky, I always thought she had a deliciously dark humour’
Ears burning, in third place, Iain was quick to set the record straight upon leaving: ‘There was no bullying going on. Let’s quash this rumour once and for all. Bullying is a very serious thing. It’s a huge word. There was no bullying whatsoever. ‘
He added: ‘I always got on with Becky, I always thought she had a deliciously dark humour.
‘The only argument was with Dennis and that lasted about 30 seconds before we hugged.’
Runner-up Jamie agreed: ‘I don’t think Iain was playing a game to be honest. He’s a nice guy and we became good mates in there.
‘Last night was just a really special evening with me, Iain and Toff. I think it’s been completely blown out of proportion if I’m honest.’
