Lady Colin Campbell might not be entirely popular with all of her I’m A Celebrity campmates, but it seems she has a fan in Katie Hopkins.
Who’d thought it, eh?
In fact, Katie is such a fan of the controversial campmate that she’s admitted she wants to be Lady C when she grows up.
Speaking to RadioTimes.com, the 40-year-old explained: “There’s a lot of me in her. I think I am her. When I grow up, I want to be her.
“She slings an insult and then totally backs up that insult saying ‘It’s the truth, so I said it’, which is very like me. ‘Yes, you’re fat, deal with it’. It’s sort of telling people the truth and they can own their issue with that.
“I like her pearls – I’m holding mine while I’m talking – I like her attitude, I like that she doesn’t need to be loved. I like the fact that the whole camp can not be talking to her and she still doesn’t give a s**t. Brilliant.”

She wasn’t done there though, adding: “Nobody these days can hold an argument or position, and she can, and that takes some force of nature.
“Personally, I hope she wins it. She won’t, but I wish she would.”
Lady C has, of course, clashed with her I’m A Celebrity campmates - especially Tony Hadley and Duncan Bannatyne, the latter of which she refers to as a ‘vain old goat’.
Explaining why she thinks many haven’t warmed to Lady C, Katie said: “So many hate Lady C because they perceive her as posh, and yet they think idiots like Duncan Bannatyne and Tony Hadley are OK, even though they failed to do what they should have done and failed to deliver on a task.”
Tony refused to be Lady C, Chris Eubank and Kieron Dyer’s chambermaid and bell-boy, which led to the camp’s biggest row of the series.

Katie continued: “The reason they think that’s acceptable is because Lady C is perceived as posh. I think it’s a societal thing. We warm to people like Tony Hadley because he’s one of the lads.
“We distance ourselves from Lady C as she’s posh and therefore privileged and we are adverse to privilege. But I think she’s brilliant.”
Asked whether she’d like to have had Lady C as one of her campmates in series seven, Katie replied: “I think that would have been quite funny. I think she would have been a dastardly ally.”
Now THAT’S something we would’ve LOVED to have seen.
