Since being booted out of the jungle last night, Dennis is now addressing what's been dubbed by many as 'bullying'.

Before he left the jungle, Dennis had been in the shit with viewers after telling Iain he shouldn't do a Bushtucker trial, suggesting that based on his track record, he'd fail.

On being kicked out, many fans then took to social media to celebrate his departure:

Speaking to presenters Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard via video link, he explained that he was 'shocked' by the scandal and that, despite what viewers had believed, the two got on very well.

"I was shocked to be honest when I actually saw all that," he said.

He even said he'd got football tickets for Iain and his two kids to go and see Chelsea FC.

"I'm also going on his new talk show," he added, before saying: "All of us are going to Amir [Khan]'s boxing in February, when he has his first fight."

The former Chelsea captain added: "I'm also going to meet him in Gerrard's Cross where his mother is in a care home. Then there's a place called Wildwood where I'm going to meet him and have some dinner with him.

"So I'm a little shocked with what's happened. We've got on very well and it's really interesting because I think ITV wouldn't allow [bullying] anyway. It's something I don't think they'd ever allow."

He also said that he enjoyed the banter that Dec had been giving him about his height throughout the show, even saying he thought it was 'hilarious'.

"How funny was that?" He said. "The boys gave me a lot of stick! I watched it today and I thought it was hilarious. It was fantastic."
