The 59-year-old father-of-two was clearly still shaken by the encounter, confessing he would be leaving the South African jungle a changed man.
Cathartic: Paul Burrell revealed on Thursday’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia he is now finally able to ‘let go’ of the late Princess Diana after a psychic reading in the jungle
‘I’m here and the people are wonderful,’ a tearful Paul said. ‘I’m leaving the jungle as Paul Burrell, not Diana’s butler. I’m leaving that behind.’
Paul was quick to thank John for his supposed spiritual insights, admitting it was now time for him to ‘move on.’
‘Now, it’s about letting go. Thank you, Mr Edward, it’s about moving on,’ he said in a jungle confessional.

He continued: ‘It’s about moving on into the autumn of my life and being happy and not having guilt. You’ve got to let go.’
Confiding in campmate Danny Green, Paul said: ‘Once you’ve been involved with someone like that, someone so iconic and someone so beautiful and you’ve loved someone so much, it’s very difficult to let go.’
Danny sympathetically replied: ‘It would be like me trying to let go of my missus.’

On Wednesday’s episode, John revealed supposed details about Diana life – the most notable being that the Princess was involved in a previously unreported vehicle accident before her fatal car crash in Paris in 1997.
‘You had a friend who passed in a vehicle accident,’ John asked Paul during his psychic reading.
Paul’s interest was piqued when John asked the follow-up question: ‘Were there two car accidents?’
He continued: ‘I’m feeling like there were two car accidents – almost like one was foreshadowing and one was tragic.’
After muttering a quick, ‘No’, Paul’s head suddenly shot up in recognition and he replied emphatically: ‘Yes! You couldn’t possibly know that.’
Paul was clearly shaken by John’s alleged knowledge of Diana’s second accident, telling campmate Jackie Gillies that the reading was an ‘incredible experience’.

‘She was frightened that night,’ Paul said, referring to the previously undisclosed vehicle accident.
‘She crashed her car. She couldn’t drive it. She was in the middle of nowhere. She said: “What do I do?”‘
He continued: ‘I said, “You go and lock yourself in the ladies loo in the nearest hotel and I’ll come and get you.” And I did. I went down at midnight and collected her and then rang the police and the Palace to say they can go and tow the car.’
