I'M A CELEBRITY star MARC BANNERMAN refers to himself as a "rat" for the way he handled his on-screen relationship with fellow camper CERYS MATTHEWS.

Speaking to ITV on the Coming Out show, to be screened tonight, the former EASTENDERS star said: "I just developed feelings for someone in there and I've got a missus at home, I’m a rat."

"I can’t look for a scapegoat – the buck stops here," he added.

Marc and Welsh songstress Cerys became increasingly close until he became the first person out of the jungle.

On his return to civilisation Marc found that his actress girlfriend SARAH MATRAVERS had left Oz after seeing him and Cerys together.

On the show Marc can also be heard phoning the FOOTBALLERS' WIVES actress and saying: "I'm so sorry babe."

Meanwhile, Cerys has told the News of the World that she is love with Marc and that she thinks he feels the same.

"I've found a soulmate and because I'm a hopeless romantic I want to be with him forever.

"We're going to take things slowly but I've a really amazing feeling about us," she continued.

Speaking to ITV the ex-CATATONIA singer admitted that she was aware Marc was unavailable.

She said that Marc was no more to blame than her and that she hadn't being misled as she knew he had a girlfriend.

The singer, who flew home to Wales yesterday, told the crowds at Heathrow Airport that she couldn't wait to be reunited with Marc but that her first priority was to spend time with her young children.

There had previously been speculation over how serious the jungle romance was when Marc failed to greet Cerys when she was evicted last Thursday despite promising to in a letter.
