Paul Burrell Struggled With Immense Grief After Death Of Di

Paul Burrell has only been in the jungle on I'm A Celeb for a few days, however, has wasted no time spilling the tea.

On Thursday's ep, Paul broke down speaking once again with Jackie Gillies about his final moments with his good friend and employer, Princess Diana.

Paul was of course, Diana's butler for 10 years between 1987 and 1997, when Diana tragically died in a car crash. 

Revealing to Jackie, he said: "When she died, I sat with her, I held her hand and I said to her 'wake up, wake up, you're not really dead are you? You're still alive and you're playing a trick on me'."

The 59-year-old continued: "She didn't open her eyes and I said 'why did you leave me here? Why didn't you take me with you? Because my place is to look after you.'"

The chat ended with Paul telling Jackie, Diana's final words to him.

"The last thing she said to me, we were on the phone, she was in Paris, and the very last words were...'Promise me you'll always be there.'"
