Lady Colin Campbell leaves I’m A Celebrity ‘on medical grounds’
Lady Colin Campbell has left ‘I’m a Celebrity…’, on “medical grounds”.
The contestant was announced to have left today, but not before causing drama in the jungle in recent weeks.
Lady Campbell, 66, wrote controversial royal biographies such as ‘Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody Knows’.
Raised as male until her late teens, she was hospitalised and given male hormones.
In a 2013 interview, she said: “Our family was extremely well known and he would have done anything to avoid publicity and embarrassment.
“I remember walking with him from the owners’ and stewards’ car park upstairs to our box at the racecourse.”
She went on: “People were staring, because my situation was sufficiently well known, and although I wore trousers it was very clear I was not a boy. You could see to him it was the worst ordeal of his life.
“The only way out he could conceive was that I should commit suicide. He told me: ‘The one solution to your problem is a dose of rat poison’.”
She previously sued newspapers for implying that she was “a transvestite” or transgender after . Of the implications, she said: “It was awful. It is offensive beyond belief. It was rape.”
A public vote has been called off following Lady C’s departure.
