Andrew Maxwell became the second star to leave I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here last night, after his arguments with Ian Wright dominated his time in the jungle.

But the comedian, 44, denied claims that the retired footballer had bullied him, insisting that they "love each other" and are actually very similar.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine, he explained that everyone is always hungry and tired, which leads to tension and arguments.

Andrew said: "You're eating such a small amount of food and you're not sleeping very well so it's bound to happen.

"Me and Ian love each other, we got on like a house on fire. It's just we're really, really similar men.

"Everyone missed their loved ones but me and Ian are probably the most emotional men in the camp. Overly emotional men.

"Our emotions were in sync so when he was sad I was also sad and that's what happened."

Andrew said he got along with everyone in the jungle but he was most looking forward to having a drink with James Haskell.

He added: "We're both rugby fans, well he's not a rugby fan he did it for a living. I liked everyone.

"In the whole camp there was a person for each one of my personalities.

"If I wanted to be really mellow Nadine was there, if I wanted to talk about football I could talk to Andy.

"It was a great complimentary group of people."

When he left the show last night Andrew said he wanted James to win, despite the negative reaction from the public.

He explained: "Jim is either relentlessly keeping peoples spirits up with banter or being a life coach, the only thing outside that is he hates dithering, if there is any of that if flips his lid."
