Lady C opens up about relationship with I'm a Celebrity's Larry Lamb

Emmy Griffiths

FormerI'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Lady Colin Campbell has revealed why she parted ways with her ex-boyfriend who is currently in this year's series of the reality TV show – Larry Lamb!

The socialite revealed that the pair had a romance back in the 70s which ended after she decided she didn't quite like the Gavin and Stacey star enough to marry him. Chatting on Loose Women, the 67-year-old said: "Larry and I had a small romance in 1978 and I was about 28 and he was about 30 or 29. I think he's a year or two older than me so he was at the peak of his masculinity. He is gorgeous. I can't sing his praises highly enough. 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."

Lady C praised Larry

She revealed that the pair spent six months together before she called it quits, explaining: "You know what men are like when they want to get married, 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… Larry is lovely and he's very intelligent and very focused. He is one of nature's true gentlemen."

Larry spoke about how much he was looking forward to going on the reality TV show, revealing that his four children encouraged him to go to the jungle. He said: "I'd finished a film and when this suddenly came up, I happened to tell my kids who kept saying, 'do it, do it.' I'm not nervous, more excited. It's a great experience and a challenge… I am definitely not going to quit the jungle… I will stay until I am booted out."
