Ian Wright felt ‘let down’ by I’m A Celebrity bosses

Ian Wright feels "let down" by ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ bosses.

The former footballer was the fifth star to be voted out of camp in the 2019 series after surprising viewers with a number of outbursts, but he felt frustrated that producers didn’t show "the whole picture" of who he is.

He told Red Magazine: "To be totally honest, if I could take that time back I would.

"They let me down by not showing the whole picture of who I am. We had so many brilliant in-depth conversations that were never shown.

"People sometimes see this persona of me where I don’t seem like I’m vulnerable but I’ve always been a person in touch with my emotions. I’m never far away from feeling like I could cry.

"I have very deep feelings that I’ve had to learn to deal with, but I still have my moments.

"I’m still working in a field where people are looking for mistakes to end you. I’m lucky I have a good circle of people around to look out for me and I’ve got my missus [Nancy Hallam]."

While he enjoys his role as a pundit on ‘Match of the Day’, Ian admitted he hasn’t always felt comfortable in front of the camera.

He said: "People sometimes confuse me for someone who wants to be on television but all I ever really wanted to do was talk about football.

"I love doing ‘Match of the Day’ now, but TV didn’t come naturally to me.

"When I retired from football, presenting stuff like ‘Friday Night’s All Wright’ was very much out of my comfort zone. I didn’t like doing stuff in front of a live audience and I became very self-conscious, it was anxiety-inducing."

What’s more, spending so much time at home due to the coronavirus pandemic has made Ian realise he’s lacking on the domestic front.

He added: "I’m a poor cook and a terrible DIY man.

"I’ve been baking Victoria sponges and wondering what I’ve done wrong. Why can’t I get the sponge to rise? Am I forgetting something? Am I overheating the oven? Am I leaving it in too long?

"There’s so much time to sit around and think that you start to pull yourself apart a bit."
