Elaine Petch told Mail Online: “I was so nervous. I didn’t want him to fall, it was so nerveracking. “I held my friend’s hand and didn’t really want to look. But I had to. “I was so scared for him but he was fantastic.” Former Strictly Come Dancing winner Louis has also hinted he may appear on the next series of I’m A Celebrity...
