VICKY Pattison and Phillip Schofield defended Dennis Wise after fans accused him of bullying Iain Lee during last night’s show.

The footballer left comedian Iain distraught when he cruelly told him that he wasn’t good enough to do the Bushtucker Trial.

Fans were outraged by his behaviour but former Jungle Queen Vicky and This Morning host Phil think he “had a point”.

Speaking on today’s show, Phil said: “The trouble is I thought Dennis had a point, but he just wouldn’t let it go. It’s like, you’ve made your point, now stop.”

Vicky added: “He didn’t execute it well, I think was the problem.And that’s the worst thing, I totally agree with you.

“I’m conflicted because I love Dennis, I think he’s been brilliant all the way through, and I actually really saw his point. However, he should have just dropped it.”

It comes amid new reports that  show bosses are now “considering removing Dennis from the jungle” after what happened last night.

A show insider told The Mirror Online: “Producers have been holed up in meetings debating whether to reprimand Dennis or remove him altogether.

“They have a duty of care to all contestants they take very seriously.”

The former footballer’s comments came after Iain said he wanted to have a go at the Tutankha-Doom trial.

Iain said: “I know I’d like to have a go on one and I know you’d like to have a go on one,” gesturing to Jamie Lomas.

Jamie told the camp he wanted to do it but Stanley said they should have a discussion about it.

Dennis jumped in and told him: “My only problem and I’ll be honest with you Iain, is that you’ve said ‘Get Me Out Of Here’ twice and what I don’t want to do is we have no dinner and so….”

Looking upset, Iain replied: “Ok but I also got 11 stars on one.”

Dennis didn’t back down and said: “I get that but you’ve also said ‘Get Me Out Of Here’ twice out of the three you’ve done you failed…”

Iain retorted: “No, I failed one of them, the other was a challenge.”

Not appearing to want to admit he was wrong, Dennis then appeared to suggest that Iain was likely to fail the trial.

Dennis quipped: “If you come back with nothing everyone will be upset.”

Iain replied: “I get it, you don’t want me to do it, I withdraw my offer, does that mean I can do no Trials for the rest of the run then?

“Is that what you’re saying, because that feels a little bit unfair.”

Dennis hit back and said: “Well Iain, the problem is you’ve gone a couple of times and you’ve come back with nothing, so that causes me a slight issue.”

Iain has struggled throughout his time in the jungle

Iain appeared to get agitated and said: “Well I won’t do any more Trials then, but it just feels a bit…”

Although Dennis tried to turn the tables back on him and told him to “not be like that,” fans of the show were furious at how the sportsman had put him down.

One tweeted:“Why is he being so cruel to Iain?” and another said: “So the bullying begins again…”

However, Iain finally gets to take on another trial tonight and ends up licking lots of toads.

Who is Martin Roberts?

Born in Warrington in 1963, Martin studied at the Bradford University in the 1980s and was a DJ at the university’s radio station before moving on to BBC Radio Manchester.

Along with his media career, the 54-year-old has always had an interest in houses and started developing property in the early 1990s.

He is best known for co-hosting the long-running BBC show Homes Under The Hammer alongside Lucy Alexander, which follows people as they transform homes they buy at auction.

How did Martin Roberts begin his TV career?

After rising through the ranks of the radio world, he landed his first job on TV when he was made a regular presenter on much-loved BBC travel show Wish You Were Here?

He co-presented it with telly icon Judith Chalmers, and was often seen making viewers green with envy at his sun-soaked explorations.

After that he landed his current job on Homes Under The Hammer and often appears on news programmes where he gives his expert opinion on property.

Martin has also presented shows such as Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is and How to Survive the Property Crisis.

When it comes to the housing market, Martin isn’t just a TV presenter – he’s a bona fide expert.

He hosts two-hour seminars across the UK teaching people how to make big bucks from decaying and problematic properties most are too scared to touch.

Furthermore, he has a members-only section of his website that promises to reveal even more tricks of the trade.

In 2016, Martin gained even more exposure when he became a contest on I’m A Celeb.

He had a baptism of fire when he and Danny Baker entered the camp later than the rest of celebrities, the two newcomers learning that they would have to instantly face a Bushtucker Trial.

Having chosen Olympian Sam Quek to join him for the task, the TV star sent some viewers into a meltdown as he got very close to the hockey ace during the challenge.

He has outed himself as a ‘tree hugger’, giving Adam a demonstration of how to be at one with nature.

Martin left the jungle after spending 14 days Down Under, he left during a double elimination alongside Wayne Bridge.
