Meanwhile Jack appeared in Tuesday night’s episode as part of footage from Monday in camp, but presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly later confirmed to audiences that he would no longer take part, and neither his exit or goodbyes were aired.

It is believed that he was then ferried to a boutique hotel on Hope Island for a chat with show bosses and advisers, before heading home quickly in order to avoid speaking to the Australian press.

An I’m A Celebrity spokesperson said on Tuesday: ‘Due to circumstances outside camp Jack has had to withdraw from the show.’

Early on Wednesday morning, The Mirror alleged that Jack had been removed for further questioning about messages her sent to a female fan’.

Though this was not explicitly referenced in a statement from Jack’s representatives on Tuesday night, it was explained that Jack agreed to being pulled out to defend himself.
