I’m A Celebrity was rocked as Naughty Boy and Dame Arlene Phillips both threatened to leave in the third episode.
The music producer had previously expressed thoughts that he was considering leaving the camp, but tonight said he was fed up with rival campmates and the conditions at the castle.
He also lashed out at Richard Madley and shouted: “Why did he choose me?”
Arlene also admitted that she had had enough, saying: “For me, I was hoping to come out here strong and proud, but it didn’t start off the right way.
“I find it unacceptable. I know I can’t move on and my mind isn’t going to change in the morning, a night isn’t going to change.”
A stunned Richard asked: “You’re leaving too?”
Arlene then told the Telegraph that there was nothing that would help her stay.
Naughty Boy told friends in The Clink that he was angry with the celebs in the main camp, who he felt chose him for the treacherous trap test because he was the weakest.
Attempting to console her, Richard said: “You’ve been reading too much into this. You did really well today and I know you keep saying ‘no I didn’t,’ but yes you did.”
The 36-year-old added: “You’re missing my point. Doing a test and a challenge in the same day is not something no one has done.
“No one knows what I’m doing right now, please.”
Defensive Danny Miller replied: “We’re just trying to build your confidence, dude.
“We’re not trying to get on you.”
The irritable mischievous boy barked: “Well, it’s not working.”
Hosts Ant McPartlin and Deck Donnelly told viewers that the unhappy pair were still contestants on the show.
Ant said: “After some thought, they joined the camp earlier today with the intention of facing them.”
“See you on tomorrow night’s show,” added Dec.
Naughty Boy has previously said that he felt “traumatized” in the palace.
He returns to David Ginola, Arlene Phillips, Richard Madley and Danny and says he wants to go to his mother’s house.
Music producer, real name Shahid Khan, said: “I think my time is up here. I had a feeling earlier and I was thinking of mom.”
He insisted he loved his Clink friends but said of the main camp: “I don’t know if I can ever join in.”
Richard urges her to “sleep on it”. But Naughty Boy said: “I can’t go from here to that main camp. I can’t fake it.
“As much as they say they love us, they love you. . . there is no such thing as love.”
He said: “They are my reason for leaving.”
Later, when Richard reads a scroll saying that the camps would merge in the morning, the mischievous said that his heart was no longer in it.
Last night Naughty Boy admitted: “I can honestly say, the first night at The Clink, I woke up.
“But there was no one else to blame but me. I was also questioning,
should i be here?
“A robin flew by. I felt something. That robin is here to see me. We cooled down a bit.”
“Yeah, I was thinking Robin came up with a message and that message is that everything’s going to be okay.”
She turned down I’m A Celebrity last year to help take care of her mother.
The chart-topper, 36, lives with dementia victim Zahida and her caregiver, but he could not bear to leave them during the 2020 lockdown.

Before having cold feet in the castle, the hitmaker said that he wants to be king of the castle for his mother this year.
“I was sad that I couldn’t do the show last year,” he said.
“We were in and out of lockdown and with so much anxiety, it didn’t feel like the right time.
“I had to understand dementia in a different way.”
