Fans of I’m A Celeb have been left furious by a behind the scenes video, which appears to show Amir Khan and Dennis Wise celebrating when Iain Lee was forced to leave.
The clip aired on the reality series’ spinoff show Coming Out and showed Amir, Dennis and Rebekah Vardy watch the final with their other campmates.
When Iain was revealed to be leaving Amir and Dennis could be seen shaking hands, a sight which left fans livid as there have been accusations of bullying taking place in the camp.

Rebekah, however, denied these accusations on Twitter, she said:
You have no idea what we were shaking hands over.
It was absolutely nothing to do with Iain and was about who we thought would win out of Iain and Toff if you’re making an accurate guess.
Fans, unfortunately, didn’t believe Rebekah…
They seem to just have it in for Iain! I mean amir said "I'm a celebrity get me out of here" and they never moaned at him for it? #ImACeleb

Words used by Amir, Jamie, Dennis and Becky on I'm a celebrity coming out party "blown out of proportion" & "no bullying took place"
It's typical of those who bully others to pass it off as "banter" or whatever.
We know it wasn't blown out of proportion and there WAS bullying

Rebekah also used a video of Iain, where he admitted to enjoying winding people up as proof that she wasn’t a bully.
In the video, he said:
I love talking to people, I love engaging with people but the thing I really love is arguing with people.
Rebekah claimed It just proves people can have two different personalities.
One person who also denied the bullying was Iain, who after leaving the camp claimed he was friends with Dennis, Amir and Rebekah.
He also denied there was any ‘bad blood’ between himself and finalist Jamie Lomas, who was also accused of picking on him.
When Coming Out was over though, Iain admitted that he wasn’t happy about what he’d seen on the show.
I hadn’t seen the comments made behind my back or the ones made by some camp mates when they left.
I still suggest the word bullying is too strong.
I’m A Celeb was won by Georgia Toffolo of Made in Chelsea fame.

Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
