The boys have been left to compete against themselves in the I'm a Celebrity camp as the last girl, mouthy hack Janet Street-Porter, was kicked out last night.
But while the jungle campers will welcome a break from Janet's relentless moaning, the poison-tongued journo was quick to lay into her fellow celebs when she got out.
She admitted to Ant and Dec that she thought her rivals were "a load of deadbeats" when she first saw them.
"But that was cruel. Once I got to know them we established a rapport. But they're not going to be my best friends," Janet said.
When the eviction was revealed, the 57-year-old gasped: "I knew it would be me, I'm happy I've done it."
Despite all her harping, she later admitted: "In a perverse, sick kind of way I actually enjoyed it."
Janet has put her bets on comic Joe Pasquale to win in tonight's final.
She said of the 43-year-old: "He's really interesting, he really does adapt. He's an incredibly hard worker out of all the people there."
The big-toothed brunette described sparring partner Paul Burrell as "wallowing in the past" and urged him to "get a grip" and move on from his life with the royals.
But the disgraced former butler can't seem to keep his mouth shut on the Windsors' secrets and let slip another indiscretion, revealing that Princess Di "was at times selfish".
However, he added: "In place of that she included my family. They were a surrogate family to hers and were included in events like theme parks.
"She tried to compensate for taking me away too many special times from my family."
