Danny Baker's wife shoots down 'bully' claims

Danny Baker's wife has insisted he is not a "bully" after he left Martin Roberts in tears on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.

The radio DJ's other half, Wendy, has shot to his defence after the 'Homes Under the Hammer' presenter's co-host Lucy Alexander claimed Danny had acted in a "bully-like" manner during an argument which led to the TV presenter crying.

Wendy told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I've been married to him for 35 years and he's never come across as a bully.

"Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, it doesn't affect anything really."

Her comments come after Lucy, 45, had tweeted: "There was no need for that bully-like telling off from Danny Baker! Who voted him form captain! Martin would never be unkind. #ImACeleb (sic)"

She was referring to Danny hitting out at Martin while insisting he should do whatever camp president Scarlett Moffatt said after the 'Gogglebox' star claimed he had been ignoring him.

The former 'Win, Lose or Draw' host blasted: "Martin, she's the president mate, whatever she says to do, you do it ... you always answer her back like she's some silly kid and she isn't."

Martin insisted he hadn't acted in such a way, but Danny continued: "Yes you do, every single time mate. She's smart as a whip, she shouldn't need me to step in but you do it too often."

Scarlett also insisted Martin hadn't been taking on her instructions, before adding: "Then as soon as one of the guys asks you, you do it."

Martin later broke down in tears and was comforted by his campmates, but the pair - who also clashed earlier in the series - have since made up and were even laughing and joking with one another on last night's (21.11.16) episode.
