Gemma Collins has left I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

The Only Way Is Essex star has struggled to cope with life in the camp and has decided today to leave the Australian jungle.

A spokesperson for the ITV show said: “We’re sorry to see Gemma go but respect her decision and wish her well.”

The 33-year-old broke down in tears during the show on Sunday and Monday night, saying at one point: “People who murder get treated better than this. That’s the truth. Even a murderer gets fed three times a day.”

Collins also claimed she had contracted malaria on Monday night’s episode after declaring she had had some disturbing diarrhoea.

“It’s bright yellow, it’s fluorescent”, she said.


The reality TV star lasted just three days in the jungle after the celebrity contestant entered the camp on Sunday.

She joins a number of celebrities who have previously quit the show, including Daniella Westbrook, Katie Price and Natalie Appleton.

Collins, who has starred in TOWIE since 2011, also appeared in the reality show Splash! earlier this year but was eliminated in the first heat.
