EASTENDERS legend Adam Woodyatt's wife Bev hopes he will use his time in the I'm A Celeb castle to reflect on how he treated her.
The Ian Beale actor, who is yet to settle his divorce from Bev Sharp, is taking part in the famous ITV show next month.
Today The Sun revealed how the star's estranged wife is furious after he signed a six-figure deal while she relies on food handouts.
A pal of Bev said: “She has really struggled financially and relied on food donations on occasion recently from family and friends.”
They added: "I think it’s inevitable he’ll end up getting picked for lots of trials and I wouldn’t blame Bev if she had his number on speed dial after all the pain and upset he’s put her through.
“She is quite likely to be one of those voting for him, and I don’t think she will be alone in that.
“But on a serious note, I hope his time in the castle will give him time to reflect on how he’s treated Bev.
“She had been at his side and supporting him for so long before he walked out.
“You can tell that Adam likes his gourmet food just by looking at his Instagram. So I don’t know how he’ll get on eating rice and beans.”
Adam is now believed to be making interim maintenance payments to Bev.
The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in Disney World, Florida, in April 1998. But he quit the marriage in August 2019.
He is the soap’s longest-serving cast member having been in 1985’s first ever episode of EastEnders.
Bosses are unsure if he will return after his break. I’m A Celeb chiefs offered him a bumper deal to be on their show.
An insider said: “Adam was a big target. He’s a soap legend and certain to be a huge hit with fans.
“But they knew they might have their work cut out because he has been quite reticent to do interviews or reality shows in recent years.
Representatives for Adam did not respond to a comment request.
“When you consider how long he has been a household name, he has only agreed to a handful of TV appearances outside Albert Square. And he isn’t known for being a red carpet regular either."
