They pinpointed the manner in which James, and ex footballer Ian Wright, had spoken to telly star Andrew Maxwell in the jungle – yet after his exit, he denied he was bullied by the sports pair.

James has also been slammed by spin off show presenter Emily Atack after he said he was “too intelligent” for a task in the camp.

Chloe, who married James last year, told Monday’s Lorraine show her other half was simply starving and grumpy.

Presenter Lorraine Kelly also called the bullying suggestions an “over reaction.”

Richard Madeley’s daughter spoke live from Australia about her hubby’s stint on the show and said: “He’s definitely had his hangry episode, he’s had his mental day.

“But the people who leave will give you the inside scoop – and they have come up to me and said he’s doing really well in camp, he’s cheering people up, and they absolutely adore him.

“I just think he had a really grumpy day.

“He was sleep deprived, he was food deprived and he was surrounded with people you aren’t necessarily friends with.”

She added: “I think the B-Word (bully) was a little bit intense.

“All I wanted to do was go in and give him a hug and some food.”

So far, TV presenter Andrew Maxwell and DJ Adele Roberts have been evicted from camp.
