Nick Pickard thinks Sam Thompson would be a worthy winner of 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'.

The 48-year-old actor - who recently exited the ITV show - has revealed that he's a big fan of Sam's "energy".

Nick told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Sam wanted to do everything and wanted to help you and he's just like a little boy. And not that we're not all fans of the show but I think he's the biggest fan of the show, he knows what we will do every day.

"I think I would say they all deserve to win in my book. But if you're going for my personal favourite, I think it would be Sam only because it's just his energy.

"And also, if he doesn't win, I want him to be there at the end because his bucket list is the cyclone trial. Because once you've done the cyclone you've ticked all the boxes."

Nick also suggested that he doesn't have any regrets about his own stint on the show.

The actor - who is best known for playing Tony Hutchinson on 'Hollyoaks' - shared: "For me, I can't say I'm not pleased to be out because for me I've done everything I could do in there, I went in there for my family. I wanted them to see me do a couple of trials and a few challenges."

Meanwhile, Sam recently opened up about his ADHD diagnosis, insisting that he's "not ashamed" in any way.

The TV star was diagnosed with ADHD and autism last year, and he discussed his experiences with campmates Josie Gibson and Marvin Humes.

Sam shared: "[It happened] last year, mate. There’s loads of people who are actually like of a certain age who get diagnosed way later.

"When the low bits happen, it goes low. But then the highs are really high."
