John Barrowman has revealed that I'm A Celebrity camp mates had a secret code word to avoid on air arguments and tantrums.

The 51-year-old actor disclosed how the 2018 contestants, including winner Harry Redknapp and TV legend Noel Edmonds, would secretly communicate.

Speaking to This Morning's Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, the Torchwood and Arrow actor said: "I enjoyed every second of it, and it was a challenge. That was the one thing – the decision to go in was to challenge myself and take myself out of my comfort zone.

"And I certainly did that. And the fact that everybody got along and we had a great time – there were times that things could have gone the other way, [but] we all established in the very beginning... We thought, 'Let's have a word'.

"The word was 'octopus'. So you're not saying anything like, 'Stop', 'Don't', 'Don't do that' to somebody. If someone was starting to behave weird or outrageous or be aggressive, we just walk up to them and go, 'Octopus'.

"It's fun to watch people get along because there are so many other programmes out there where meltdowns happen, and sometimes you think when the meltdowns happen, 'Why are you melting down? It really is not a big deal.'"

Holly Willoughby recently said she will not return for another series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! explaining that it was a "once-in-a-lifetime adventure".
