Marc has spoken about his exit from the show and has revealed that he feels “deeply sorry” for his actions in the series.
The actor was the first celebrity to be voted off the programme after building up a close relationship with fellow campmate Cerys, even though he has a long-term girlfriend.
Speaking about his time on the reality show, Marc said: “My trouble, I think, was I just tried to put everything that I know and loved to one side, just to try and live in the moment just try and be centered just try and live, basically, because we were living a very basic life there. I forgot aboutâ€¦ you know I just came a bit self-absorbed.”
He continued: “Now that Iâ€™ve come back to reality, you know, my point of view has changed a little, but a few days ago I would have said just amazing.”
When asked about his girlfriend of two-and-a-half years, Sarah Matravers, he said: “All I know is she wasnâ€™t there to meet me when I came out of the jungle, so that told me a lot and I know sheâ€™s now on the way to London. I spoke to her a little while ago sheâ€™s, well, sheâ€™s hurt. Iâ€™ve hurt her badly.”
The former EastEnders star said he had apologised to Sarah and that he hadn’t planned on hurting anyone.
He went on to say that he realised, even though he hadn’t physically cheated on his girlfriend, that he had taken things too far with Cerys. Marc said: “Iâ€™m just sorry that someoneâ€™s been hurt in the process. I really am deeply sorry.”
The celebrity then said that he hoped to be friends with Cerys after the show but that he must now do the right thing and go back to sort things out with Sarah in London.
Marc added: â€œIâ€™m glad that Iâ€™ve been voted out now because it would have been awful for me to put Sarah through a moment more despair than I already have… I regret hurting someone badly I really regret hurting someone. I really regret, I really regret that, but I donâ€™t regret anything else.”
I have been a fan of Jean-Christophe Novelli since he was on Hell’s Kitchen UK a few years ago, there’s something about his style that really appeals to me. I’d love to be able to eat in one of his restaurants at one stage before I die, and I’d love to see him on television more, as it really suits him. Good news for his fans, he’s going to be at the France Show in 2008, more info below.
