One trial too many as Katie Price quits jungle

Katie Price fled the I'm A Celebrity jungle, ITV said today.

The model had said she would not take part in today's bushtucker trial after she was nominated to face yet another test on the show.

She was picked alongside former boxer Joe Bugner for the Bad Pit trial, but said: "Someone else has to do it.

"I'm just not doing it anymore."

A message on ITV.com read: "Katie Price has left the jungle."

Viewers were told Hollywood actor George Hamilton was ruled out of taking part because of a medical condition.

Yesterday Price, aka Jordan, turned "breadwinner" as she successfully completed another bushtucker trial.

The star put on a brave face despite begging the public to stop voting for her to do the tasks, saying: "I suppose you get into a routine and the routine is I go out to work to bring back the food and you just have your daily routine. I'm the breadwinner."

The challenge saw her driving a car around a course stopping four times to fight through gunge, eat bugs, and conquer her fear of spiders to win 11 stars out of a possible 12.

Asked why she thought she was being picked, she said: "Either they love me or they hate me. No idea.

"I've always got lovers and haters but my family and friends they probably love it because they get to see more of me but I'm telling them now I'm not loving it.

"I'm gutted I'm not in exile. I'd love to be in the last three to get voted out. It's mad, I've done my due course, get me out of here."

Earlier back at the camp, Kim Woodburn revealed she had a strained relationship with Aggie McKenzie - her co-presenter on How Clean Is Your House?

She told fellow contestant Colin McAllister she knew she wanted to "go it alone" after finishing the latest series and said the pair have "no contact" when they are not filming.

McAllister said: "That's weird. Even if you were just being polite because it's your bread and butter. Because you're a partnership."
