I’m A Celebrity: Noel Edmonds stunned at being first star booted out of jungle

Noel Edmonds has become the first star to be booted out of I’m A Celebrity 2018.

They received the fewest votes from the public so their time in the Australian jungle came to an abrupt end.

The Chase’s Anne Hegerty, The Vamps guitarist James McVey, Inbetweener’s star Emily Atack, ex-EastEnder Rita Simons, football manager Harry Redknapp, presenter Noel Edmonds were all up for the chop.

They failed to escape the public vote off after losing out in The Immunity Games over the last few days.

After some sad goodbyes and a few tears, the evicted campmate made their way across the bridge for an exit interview with presenters Holly Willoughby and Dec Donnelly.

  • I’m A Celebrity: Harry Redknapp and Nick Knowles have blazing foul-mouthed row

Newcomer Holly, who has conducting her first chat with a departing campmate, was shocked at how badly they smelled.

Earlier in the show, Dec had joked about the shame of being the first contestant to leave the jungle.

He said: "There is no shame in being first out. To remind them of that I have made them a little badge."

The cheeky presenter proudly showed off his bold badge, which had the word "loser" in massive writing, with "not a" barely distinguishable in a tiny front.

Dec also claimed that the emotional after dinner speeches should have been called "after no-dinner speeches" because the "losers" had rice and beans.

The campmates who were up for the vote off gave a short speech to the rest of the group during their last night together.

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."

Giving her speech, Emily 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.”

Fan favourite Anne told them: “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.”

On his experience, James said: “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.”

Reflecting on his stay, Noel: “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 added: “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.”

I’m A Celebrity airs tonight on ITV at 9pm
