Celebs On The Farm stars slam show for putting them in 3-star hotel

THE pampered stars of the latest Celebs On The Farm series knew they would be roughing it on set.

But some, whose blushes I will spare, are already moaning that their homely three-star hotel in North Yorkshire isn’t up to their usual standards.

A telly insider said: “Since arriving at the Red Lea Hotel in Scarborough there have been more than a few grumbles about the standards of the place.

"The Red Lea is a lovely hotel and has rave reviews on Tripadvisor, but its star rating is less than was expected for some of the talent on board.

“When the show, which includes writer Lady Colin Campbell, singer Duncan James, Geordie Shore’s Holly Hagan and Birds Of A Feather Actress Linda Robson, was being cast, the celebs expected it to be five-star luxury but it’s more budget than bougie.

“If there’s something to moan home about, certain people have done it.

Complaints include the wifi being a bit slow and the fact the rooms are quite basic and lack a sense of luxury.

“It’s all pretty laughable but some of this lot want to be treated like royalty.”

The aim of the series, which is hosted by Stephen Bailey and will air on MTV next year, is to put celebs through their paces on a farm, mucking out stables and herding sheep.

Lord help them when it comes to actually getting their hands dirty.

Mel takes a pop a Bake Off's Prue

IT seems Mel Giedroyc had a case of sour grapes as she was discussing wine during the recording of her upcoming Dave comedy panel show Unforgivable.

She used the opportunity to take a cheeky swipe at Prue Leith, the judge who is one of the new team on The Great British Bake Off, which continues on Channel 4 tonight.

That new team also includes Noel Fielding and host Matt Lucas.

Mel, who was part of the old BBC Bake Off crew alongside co-host Sue Perkins and judge Mary Berry, discussed some plonk and joked: “It’s pink, fresh, fruity in essence and dry.

“That’s also written on Prue Leith’s Tinder profile.”

She then continued: “I was never going to say that about Mary, never.

“Mary Berry, no way, man. Prue Leith, fair game.”

In which case I wonder where her loyalties lie when it comes to Bake Off veteran Paul Hollywood .

Sam’s Zara video is a Nan-don’t

ZARA MCDERMOTT’S Made In Chelsea scene featuring her pleading with Sam Thompson not to break up with her is uncomfortable viewing.

But it was even more awkward to see Sam using the audio from the recording to create a joke TikTok video about his struggle to finish a Nando’s dinner.

Sam claims he had her permission – but swiftly deleted the video when he realised it probably wasn’t the nicest thing to share on social media.


Josh O’connor and Jessie Buckley will star in a Romeo & Juliet film for the National Theatre.

It has been adapted from the play that was originally planned for summer 2020 and will air on Sky Arts and PBS next year.

Josh is about to resume his role as Prince Charles in The Crown from next month.

Rule Of Vic’s For Christmas

VICTORIA DERBYSHIRE, the latest confirmed I’m A Celeb contestant, has never struck me as a rebel.

But speaking in the new Radio Times, she said: “If the rule of six is still in place at Christmas, we’re breaking it to have the rule of seven. We just are.

“Joining me, my husband and our two boys will be my mum, her partner and my husband’s dad.

"It’s fine. We’re going to be sensible. We have to be together at Christmas.

“It feels almost irresponsible saying that, but I don’t think we’re alone. We need to see my elderly mum and my husband’s elderly dad.”

After three weeks in a large gang on I’m a Celeb, she might change her mind about a big festive get-together.
