Nick Pickard reveals heartbreaking reason I’m A Celeb bromance between Sam and Tony ‘will be on shaky ground’
NICK Pickard has shared his thoughts on Sam Thompson and Tony Bellew’s friendship.
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! viewers will have watched the unlikely friendship between TV personality Sam and professional boxer Tony blossom, throughout the show.
However, their connection might not be all sunshine and laughter.
According to ex-camp-mate Nick Pickard, who is best known for starring on Hollyoaks, the pair’s relationship may be on “shaky ground” once they have left the jungle.
In a chat with Fleur East on Hits Radio, the actor explained that some footage may leave Tony less than impressed with Sam.
Nick explained: “I don’t know if you saw but there was a time where Sam was throwing these berries at Tony and Marvin said to him ‘Mate, you’ve got a death wish, right? And I just turned my head.
“When Tony comes out I think there might be a stewards enquiry about that one! But they are great together although I think Marvin’s feeling a bit left out because there was an original bromance with him!”
The Soap star has also revealed that security rushed to the I’m A Celeb camp after Tony called for back-up.
Chatting to the Mirror, Nick explained the reason behind the security intervention, stating: “It was like a tarantula. But the security guys come in and couldn’t catch him because they’re fast.
“And so he just batted it into the bushes and went ‘you’re alright it’s just a huntsman’.”

In an interview with The Sun, he admitted that there were “weight restrictions” when it came to competing in the daily Bushtucker Trials.
“I’ve lost one stone three pounds!”, he explained. “They weigh you at certain points during the trials and things because there are weight restrictions like on the Critter Mixer and I was trying to look(at the scales) but the medic wouldn’t show me.”
