And This Morning star Josie admitted: “I like Fred, but it’s not very nice being told what you’ve done isn’t good enough.”

Speaking from the Marriott Hotel in Queensland after being evicted, the Frenchman conceded: “I am going to get a b*llocking from my mum.

“I am not looking forward to it but there is nothing I can do.

“It wasn’t meant in an offending way or a bad way or in a sexist way — I want to emphasise that.

“I am not sexist and I am not mean.

“In hindsight, I should have just let her get on with it. I should have just sat back. I think she is a lovely girl.”

He said their budding friendship was not shown on screen.

Asked if he would apologise to Josie, First Dates star Fred said: “If she was offended, of course I will apologise.”

Fred — who had an emotional reunion with his fiancée, known as Fruitcake — also had a falling out with YouTuber Nella Rose.

He made a comment about being old enough to be her dad, which Nella said offended her because her father had died three years ago.

Fred insisted: “I saw her when I came out and we had a hug. Nella is a great girl.”
