Chris Eubank was firmly put in his place by fellow Scared of the Dark contestant Chris McCausland in scenes that aired on Monday night.

After previously Sebastian, who died in 2021, the boxer was approached by the comedian for slating the group and becoming irritated.

McCausland, 45, took Eubank, 56, to one side to have a quiet word about his behaviour.

‘I would like you to stop telling people how to behave and not be themselves,’ McCausland said.

‘This is people being themselves… you trample on their spontaneity and they need to be themselves.’

He continued: ‘What I’m saying to you sir, is that everybody feels slightly lectured. You talk to people like you’re boxing, you know, jab, jab, jab, jab.’

Eubank replied: ‘Well, I’ll tell you this. Be yourselves but be a bigger superstar than me.’

Later speaking in the confessionals, McCausland admitted: ‘I don’t mind telling him.

‘I mean, he’s not going to knock me out is he? I’m the only one helping him get around – he’d be f***ed without me!’

Viewers were quick to praise McCausland for trying to keep the peace in the group and for approaching Eubank.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: ‘Love that Chris McCausland isn’t afraid to tell Eubanks that he’s behaving like an absolute pr*ck.’

Echoing a similar sentiment, another said: ‘Chris Mac is absolutely amazing.’

Later in the episode, both McCausland and Eubank were handcuffed to each other as part of a task.

The pair proved to be a success as they won the challenge and were treated to a trip to the light room.

Reflecting on their time together, McCausland said: ‘I think we bonded today.’

Scared of the Dark continues on Tuesday at 9pm on Channel 4.
