Roman Kemp has revealed that Caitlyn Jenner and Ricky Gervais had the 'most awkward encounter ever' at the National Television Awards on Tuesday night held at London's 02 Arena.
The radio DJ, 27, who starred with Caitlyn, 70, on the latest series of I'm A Celebrity, made the confession on his Capital Breakfast show on Wednesday - something which Ricky, 58, has since denied.
Roman claimed that Caitlyn 'ain't a fan' of Ricky after his 2016 Golden Globes jibe and several digs made about her during his Humanity tour, which the comedian was accused of being transphobic.

Martin Kemp's son told co-host Vick Hope: 'Everyone was there including Caitlyn Jenner, so obviously there's a lot of people who want to come up to Caitlyn and want to be able to say "hello", meet her for the first time.
'She's one of the most inspirational human beings on the planet. So I just want to kind of set the scene for you. So, I'm there, Caitlyn's there, we're all chatting, everyone's around…'
Listing off some of the eventgoers, he continued: 'There's Phillip Schofield, there's Holly Willoughby, Graham Norton's over there… everyone's chatting, everyone's mingling…

'So I'm going: "Oh, yeah, so, sorry, it's a lovely night"… Oh my God she's going to shake his hand! This is really happening!…"Erm, yeah, so the jungle was a really nice place to go, it was really tough, it was really tough".
