Today she spoke about her brief feud with campmate Naughty Boy

He slated her dish as “rice pudding” having just joined main camp from The Clink for the first time.

Frankie, 32, replied: “You’re just coming into our camp and this was just what we did.”

At that Naughty Boy, 40, replied: “No this is our camp. That’s wrong what you just said.”

Frankie later sobbed, telling Kadeena Cox: “Why can no one talk about rice in here? I can’t deal with it. I just hate any confrontation.”

Speaking on TV today she said: “He didn’t let me finish so it ended up being a slight confrontation.”

Talking to her Loose Women pals, Frankie explained: “I’m not someone who cooks, especially rice – I love a bit of microwavable rice – so I’ve got no idea.

“But there seemed to be this ricegate which I think generally happens every year on the show.

“I hate confrontation so I was trying to explain to Naughty that the whole rice pudding thing isn’t, you know, we’re not saying it’s rice pudding.

“This is just how we had done it previously. Most of the foods, we don’t know the names.”

She went on: “He didn’t let me finish so it ended up being a slight confrontation. But like 10 minutes later it was absolutely fine.”

Frankie added: “I’m sure you guys know, you live at home with the people that you love and they annoy you sometimes.

“We got thrown in, we met on the show and we had to learn how to live with each other very quickly so those things are going to happen.”
