The 35-year-old boxer surprised ITV viewers by jumping to Iain’s defence yesterday when he was involved in a row with Jamie Lomas, 42, and Dennis Wise, 50.
However, tonight, he took a swipe at his fellow campmate seemingly out of the blue, after days of “bullying” accusations against the 44-year-old comedian.
As the dust settled following Stanley Johnson’s exit, Iain said: “I feel privileged to have spent a couple of weeks in his company.”
“He was good company,” Amir agreed, before turning to him to add: “On a serious note, when you came in you did f**k a lot of things up.”

“Thanks, Amir,” Iain responded, before the sportsman continued: “Remember you came in and you based us all around, you split the camp up.”
“Thanks, Amir,” Iain repeated, sarcastically. “That was my choice, you’re right.”
Later, Iain vented his feelings about Amir in the Bush Telegraph, insisting: “Amir was being an a***hole, just prodding me and making all these jokes.

“It wasn’t funny, it made me feel uncomfortable.”
Amir, however, had a different take on events, explaining: “What Iain was doing was giving all this to everyone which was making me look small.
“So I had to remind him what he was like.”
