Duncan Bannatyne has been defiant in the face of the derision thrown his way after posting a picture of himself kissing his girlfriend Nigora Whitehorn earlier this month, but one criticism in particular from ex-‘Apprentice’ star Karren Brady has made him angry.
The 66 year old fired back at the West Ham United chairwoman who called him a “silly, old fool” in her regular column for The Sun recently. Brady had written: “At 66 he has taken up with his second mid-30s partner this year and flaunts it by posting a hilariously repulsive picture, of him snogging this young lady.”

More than 100 audience members are said to have walked out of a recording of Alan Carr’s ‘Chatty Man’ earlier this week, when controversial ‘I'm A Celebrity’ contestant Lady Colin Campbell sat down for her interview. Lady C has divided public opinion since her appearance in the jungle, where she exited on Day 17.
Audience members are said to have walked out of a ‘Chatty Man’ recording which featured Lady C as a guest.
An insider told The Daily Star, "They clearly did not want to stay and listen to her. She divided opinion in the jungle and it is obvious she still annoys people now. It was very embarrassing.”
Bannatyne and Campbell frequently crossed swords on the ITV reality show, and he had some pointed words to say as he left.
Duncan Bannatyne has left ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ with a few parting shots aimed at fellow contestant Lady Colin Campbell, with whom he exchanged several harsh words over the course of the series.
