Tony Bellew has sparked 'feud' rumours after he appeared to have snubbed a former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! campmate.

Last night (10 December), Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson was announced as the 2023 King of the Jungle, with the likes of former professional boxer Tony as runner-up to the throne while Nigel Farage came in at third place.

Since leaving the jungle, Tony has appeared on Good Morning Britain to talk about his experiences on the ITV reality show and what it was like living with the other celebs.

The 41-year-old was quick to sing his praises for his campmates, telling Susanna Reid: "I had brilliant people in there with me."

He then went on to list the stars but seemed to forget one particular contestant.

Tony continued: "Sam, Marvin [Humes], Frankie [Dettori], Nigel [Farage], Nick [Pickard]... the girls were all queens."

He added: "Anyone who doesn’t love Sam… Anyone who doesn’t love Marvin, Frankie, Nigel or Nick…"

During the interview, however, Tony didn't mention First Dates star Fred Sirieix - leading many viewers to speculate as to whether the pair had some kind of clash going on between them.

One person wondered: "I’d have thought it was Nigel he wouldn’t have mentioned, he was always having digs at him behind his back."

"You can't like everyone," added a second.

Others, however, didn't seem too bothered by the situation with one viewer writing: "It’s also very easy to forget a name when you’re rattling off a list of names!"

"He just forgot," echoed another. "Everybody forgets names when trying to reel them off quickly."

Tyla has contacted Bellew and Siriex's reps for comment.

Now, any seasoned viewers will know by now that any celeb given the title of King of the Jungle will receive a crown, staff and the chance to sit on the iconic I'm A Celeb throne.

However, it has since been revealed that the Made in Chelsea star will not be going home with a cushy cash prize this season.

The reason for the decision is because, this year, ITV has decided the contestants will only receive a flat fee for appearing on the show.

According to the Mirror, the only condition for receiving such a fee is that campmates must remain in the jungle for at least 72 hours.

Tyla has previously contacted ITV for comment.
