Why Nick Knowles’ pillow sacrifice could result in him QUITTING I’m A Celebrity

He came across as a real gent when giving up his pillow to struggling Anne Hegerty in the I’m A Celebrity jungle.

But Nick Knowles might have made a bigger sacrifice than viewers first thought, after a new report claims he originally asked for the luxury item due to an old shoulder injury.

The TV star has sparked speculation that he could walk out of the camp altogether, as he will be in “constant pain” without the pillow.

The DIY:SOS presenter, 56, who is also known for his crooning, gave up the creature comfort to Anne, 60, who had been finding it difficult to sleep in camp.

She cried on his shoulder during Tuesday night’s episode, admitting she was finding the experience to be physically uncomfortable.

"Nick handing his pillow over to Anne was actually even more generous than people at home know,” an insider told The Sun.

"He needs a good pillow because he has an old shoulder injury from a long time ago that still causes him pain. He gets a really stiff neck and will have been in constant pain sleeping in the jungle.

"But that’s so like Nick, he always puts other people first and would have wanted Anne to be happy."

Fans took to Twitter to heap praise on the seemingly selfless star.

One wrote: “Nick showing that just a simple gesture of putting his arm around Anne who is truly suffering, and then giving her a pillow to help her sleep ! Stuff dreams are made off.”

Another tweeted: “I actually cried real tears when Nick gave Anne his pillow.”

A third commented: “Did anyone else start blubbering like a baby when Nick Knowles gave Ann Hegarty that pillow.”

However, not everyone felt that Nick was being kind, with TV presenter Andi Peters explaining his opinion on I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp.

He told Scarlett Moffatt and Joe Swash: "He requested the pillow – he didn’t know who else was going into the jungle with him so he requested it for himself.

"So by giving the pillow to somebody in their hour of need, on national telly in front of 10million viewers? That’s what a cynical person might say."
