I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Noel Edmonds was booted out in the first jungle eviction of the 2018 series.
The contestant was told their fate by show hosts Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly, who entered camp at the end of Friday’s ITV show.
Noel, 69, was forced to say his goodbye after just 10 days in camp and a stint as Emperor, before leaving their base Down Under to be reunited with wife Liz.
After learning of the sad news, which came after a number of stars had secured immunity in the previous Rancid Race task, they said: “Yes, absoutely. Am I supposed to look disappointed?
They added: “It’s been great. It’s been really, really terrific.”
The hosts said it was between Rita Simons and the Deal or No Deal presenter who would be kicked out, after they polled the lowest amount of public votes.
After walking across the bridge to the Aussie studio, Noel said he was “humbled and proud” to be a part of the ITV reality series.
Noel told how he was excited to be reunited with his wife, Liz, but how it was tinged with disappointment.
He later tipped former The X Factor star Fleur East to win the series.
Earlier in the episode, the camp was split as Nick Knowles, Sair Khan, Malique Thomspon-Dwyer, John Barrowman (who tried jokingly to sneak Emily into the dinner under his shirt) and Fleur East all enjoyed a dinner of Crocodile sausages and vegetables downed with some carrot juice while the others just had just rice and beans.
The campmates who were up for the vote off gave a short speech to the rest of the group.
Rita said: “I hope that whatever time you have left in here is amazing and I’m not saying anything too deep so I don’t get emotional but I love you all and that’s my barrier going up.”
Emily followed on and said: “Coming here I realised I don’t need to be anything other than myself, I’ve been stripped bare here and not a single person has judged a bone in my body. You’ve made me the happiest I’ve been in such a long time, thank you.”
Anne then confessed: “I didn’t think I would do something that was going to make me feel so exposed and vulnerable and people wouldn’t judge me for it. You have all been incredibly kind when I needed kindness so I will miss you all terribly.”
James added: “I think we all came in here thinking we knew who we were but I’ll be leaving as someone else as I’ve learned so much from all of you. It’s the most bizarre set up and none of us will ever do this again and what we do in here is so raw.”
Noel, who entered the ITV show days after the original stars, said: “It wasn’t easy coming in late so thank you for making it easy as you can, earlier today I was reflecting on how fortunate I am in my life and thinking about true experiences and I wasn’t expecting this to get into the top ten of all time.”
Harry, 71, who has proved fans’ favourite, surmised: “I’ve felt so at home here and loved every minute being around you all.
“There is not one person here I could say anything bad about, every one of you has been incredible to me and to each other. It’s been an unbelievable experience. I don’t understand what you are going on about but I love every one of you.”
