Ashley Roberts Silenced in Favor of Nicole Scherzinger While With the Pussy Cat Dolls

2 December 2012 5:06 PM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Ashley Roberts ''wasn't allowed to talk'' in The Pussycat Dolls, silenced in favor of Nicole Scherzinger. The blonde singer claims she was banned from voicing her opinion during her time in the 'When I Grow Up' group and lead singer Nicole Scherzinger spoke behalf of the whole band. Speaking during filming for UK reality TV show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' the 31-year-old beauty said: ''Even in the group I wasn't allowed to talk, we were told to be quiet. Only Nicole was allowed to talk and we would occasionally pitch in.'' In astonishment, campmate Charlie Brooks asked: ''Only Nicole was allowed to talk, why did they say that then, did that not drive you nuts?'' Ashley said such rules contributed to the split of the original line up of the band in 2008, explaining: ''Are you serious? Why do you think the band broke up? »

'I'm a Celebrity' Eric comments on Rosemary's weight

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! contestant Eric Bristow has commented on former campmate Rosemary Shrager's weight.

The campmates incorrectly guessed Colin, with Eric saying: "He lost that in 17 days. That's just under two pounds a day. No way could Rosemary have lost that weight in five days less." When they discovered it was in fact Rosemary, Ashley Roberts wondered what Rosemary must have been eating before entering the jungle. Eric said: "She must have been a pig." Charlie Brooks defended her, saying: "Credit where credit is due Eric." He replied: "Credit? She doesn't really look any better with losing all that lot. (more) »
