Larry Lamb on his traumatic childhood: 'I lived in a house that was like a war zone. I was so emotionally damaged'
LARRY LAMB OPENS UP ABOUT TRAUMATIC CHILDHOOD
Larry joined us to talk about his time on I'm A Celebrity and also opened up about his difficult childhood.
When asked about whether his biggest fear was repeating his parents' mistakes Larry told us, 'I lived in a house that was like a war zone. My mother and father just didn't like each other and got caught up in a marriage of convenience. It was horrible. They fought for nine years and finally split up. It really affected me and my brother and sister. We went to live with my dad and his mum. They should never have even met. You do carry it with you. And you spend the rest of your life trying to patch together that will be something better than that.'
Larry went on to add, 'I was so emotionally damaged I didn't know what I was doing. I was just trying to make a life for myself. But I just knew that what had gone on up to that point wasn't the way I wanted to live my life.'
Larry, 69, separated from Clare Burt in 2014 and has been with new parter Marie Victorine for over a year. Asked if he would marry again, Larry said: 'I have three marriages already. I think these sort of things are best discussed in private.'
And as for falling out with TV presenter Martin Roberts while in the I'm A Celebrity jungle, Larry told us, 'In terms of bad blood, there is absolutely none. Whether you like it or not you're involved in a game I think that's what I lost sight of. You can't get on with everyone.'
