I'M a Celebrity's Simon Gregson has confessed he LIED to producers to avoid facing his biggest fear during the Bushtucker Trials.
The 47-year-old revealed the sneaky move during his exit interview with hosts Ant and Dec in last night's final.
Dec said to Coronation Street actor Simon: "You said before you went in you were frightened of what you might have to face, was it as bad as you thought it may be?"
But Simon responded: "No it wasn’t as bad as I’d thought it would be because I really don’t like spiders, so anytime I was asked in the Telegraph… they kept saying, ‘what would be your worst fear?’
"I thought, ‘I ain’t telling you, because that’s what will happen’."
Simon came runner-up to Emmerdale star Danny Miller, with Loose Women's Frankie Bridge finishing in third place.
And it seems he may have had a little too much celebrating, as This Morning viewers were convinced he was still drunk during his interview this morning.
During the chat with Josie Gibson and Vernon Kay, Simon appeared to be slurring his words and slightly rambling.
