Im A Celebritys Tony Bellew steps in as massive intruder sneaks into camp
Nick Pickard has revealed the jungle secrets – with some shocking and hilarious scenes we haven’t seen on screen.
The Hollyoaks star, 48, was the fourth person to leave camp via the public vote. He praised his campmates but claimed boxer Tony Bellew used his microphone like a phone to alert producers to an intruder.
Nick said: “I thought, ‘What is he doing’ because we’ve all got the radios on and he’s going, ‘There’s a massive spider in here’. It was on the TV and it was like a tarantula.

“But the guys send in the security and you don’t ever see them on the telly but the security guys come in and couldn’t catch him because they’re fast. And so he just batted it into the bushes and went, ‘You’re alright it’s just a huntsman, right’.
“Tony never went to bed the rest of that night! He said, ‘I’m not sleeping in there, it was massive’. That was funny.” Nick also revealed that Bellew stood on the campmates’ grub, adding: “He accidentally put his size 12s right in the food.
“But all 12 people still queued up for seconds! How low we’ve sunk.” He says Hollyoaks bosses may need to write about how his character has been on a health kick – after shedding almost eight kilograms in the jungle.
The 48-year-old is known to millions as Tony Hutchinson in Hollyoaks. But the character will be looking a little slimmer in the New Year.
Nick said: "I've lost one stone and three pounds. They weigh you at certain points during the trials and things because there are weight restrictions and I was trying to look(at the scales) but the medic wouldn't show me. So it makes it all the more interesting when you come out.
"I'm going to definitely try to do no more midnight trips to the fridge, because that's where you put on your weight. I'll try and keep it off as much as I can.
"They might try to write it into Hollyoaks, I don't know. It's one of the things that we say 'I will keep it off' – but I've come out here and it's Christmas. So it will probably all go back on!"
Whilst in camp and slimmed down, Nick became a heartthrob on social media with many admirers. But told the news, he said: "My girlfriend told me that, It's a bit late in life to be becoming that. I am nearly 50. But that's nice to know."
He also confessed he felt a bit tipsy when he drank the champagne and spoke to Ant and Dec in his exit interview. Nick said: "I have to admit I had champagne and felt a bit wobbly like I've downed that a bit too quickly. I'm a lightweight, the best of times."
Reflecting on his time there, he concluded: "My girlfriend just said she's really proud of me. She was really happy because you just worry about how you come across, that's all that matters because you never know how these things are going to portray you when you're outside.
"I've been in the game long enough to know the way it goes. But yeah, so far it's been very positive. I can't wait to watch some of the show back."
