Brian Harvey quit the jungle today after a blazing row with Janet Street-Porter over his flatulence.

Janet, the IoS's editor-at-large, hit the roof when the former East 17 star broke wind close to where she was making dinner.

She shouted at him - and he responded by packing his bags and storming out of the camp.

Furious Brian said he was sick of being "treated like a kid" in front of millions of viewers.

It was not the first time Janet had clashed with Brian over breaking wind. The former chart star had blamed his jungle diet.

Harvey, 30, had found it tough in the camp from day one.

When he arrived in Australia he learned that his grandmother had died. He decided to carry on with the show and entered the jungle a day late.

On Wednesday he faced the grim House of Pies challenge in which he had to eat insect-infested pies covered by a swarm of flies.

And viewers had seen Harvey become increasingly upset by the number of flies which had found their way into his camp bed.

The meagre diet of rice had also been getting him down.

"I don't know how much longer I can do this," he complained shortly before his departure. "I'm being serious. I need a f****** sandwich."
