I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!'s Nicola McLean has slammed Scarlette Douglas's treatment of Boy George.

The 2008 series star has shared her thoughts exclusively with the Daily Star for the second week of her column.

"If you've got the b******* to ask Boy George about something he doesn't want to talk about, then you have to be more direct. It was so passive-aggressive the way she did it.

When she said 'what was it with you, handcuffs and a radiator? That was all I heard.' No, it wasn't she's talking s***.

"She's not dumb, she's proved she isn't. So, you can't play the dumb card. I thought the way she asked was passive-aggressive no wonder it got his backup.

"I would have said in a quiet moment, 'George, oh my god, I've read all about you going to prison. It must have been really tough.'

"Then he would have opened up."

She continued: "When I was in Big Brother with Natasha Giggs, who had affair with her brother-in-law for eight years, everyone wanted to know about it. And I was the only one to ask and I said to her 'how was it around the Christmas table?' and she laughed."

Nicola added: "But finally there is a bit of tension, but I did feel sorry for him and I hate to say that because what the did was wrong if a man did that to a woman, then George wouldn't be sitting there.

"I think she's a bit bossier than we thought after last night's show I wasn't keen on how she asked Boy George. I thought it was sly, she wanted to get the airtime for having that conversation but the way she went about it was off."

Page 3 model turned reality star Nicola starred in her series alongside the likes of Carly Zucker, Dani Behr, David Van Day, Simon Webbe, Joe Sway, and Timmy Mallett.
