I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! favourite Anne Hegerty shocked fans as she insisted she wants to leave camp.
The Chase Governess, who suffered a tough start to camp life, appeared to be relishing her most recent days in the critter-filled ITV jungle, forming bonds with co-stars and taking part in the jungle banter.
On Thursday’s episode she opened up to campmate Nick Knowles, who she hailed as a source of support.
Anne, 61, said of the DIY SOS host: “I think Nick has been keeping an eye out for me, he knows how tough I found it to begin with.”
He then asked her why she signed up for the jungle, to which she replied: “I spent the first three days asking myself that and on the first night I lay awake all night crying just thinking what have I done.”
It appears her sadness has set in as on Friday’s episode the brainbox made her stance crystal clear ahead of the first elimination.
She told her fellow Koala team mates John Barrowman and Emily Atack: “I really want to leave but I don’t want to let you down, I feel conflicted because we already aren’t going to have dinner tonight and I don’t want immunity. Neither of you are going to go.”
Torchwood actor John replied: “It’s not a popularity contest, the viewers will choose one,” said John.
In the Bush Telegraph he said: “Maybe there’s an element that people don’t want to be the first one voted off or maybe they do want to be the first one out but it’s that uncertainty of what is going to happen that’s looming over everyone.”
Meanwhile, after failing in the food challenge, Anne took things one step further and pleaded with the public not to vote for her.
Revealing her decision not to take part she said: “I didn’t do it, I bottled it I would never have been one of the two winners at the end, seriously please vote to save everyone else tomorrow, please don’t worry about me.”
Her unexpected outburst came ahead of the first elimination, in which some of the campmates had already secured immunity.
Meanwhile, Anne’s campmates were exclusively hailed “role models” by the National Autistic Society for their support after she revealed her battle with Aspergers.
She was surrounded by a huddle of campmates when she confessed she suffered from Asperger syndrome, a form of Autism, which was only diagnosed 15 years ago.
