You won't believe this - Larry Lamb and Lady Colin were once a couple

Updated: 

It seems Larry Lamb's life is a jungle full of secrets - last year's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! star Lady Colin Campbell has revealed that she had a fling with the actor.

Lady Colin, who was a hit with viewers of the ITV series last year, appeared on Loose Women today where she made the revelation about Larry, who is second favourite to win this year.

She said: "Larry and I had a teensy weensy romance.

"We met at the opening of the Ritz casino and he saw me across the room. As soon as I caught his eye, he caught mine - more accurately, he came over and didn't let go."

Apparently, the love affair took place in the late 70s after Lady Colin split from her husband, Lord Colin, 14 months into their marriage in 1975.

She was due to fly back to her native Jamaica the next day and said: "He came and picked me up and took me to the airport.

"Larry is lovely and he's very intelligent and very focused so, anyway, I came back from Jamaica, we went to dinner. We dated for about six months."

Asked by the panellists what he was like in the bedroom, Lady Colin coyly said: "Larry is a superb all rounder."

But their romance eventually came to an end - she explained: "I realised Larry wanted to get married and you know what men are like when they want to get married... I realised that wonderful as Larry was, I didn't think we were going to make it in the long haul.

"I converted him - and he was a willing convert - into a great, great friend. And we were great, great friends for years after."

However, she admitted that he hadn't responded to her text or email with tips on how to tackle the I'm A Celebrity jungle.
