I’m A Celebrity – Rita Simons is fourth star to be booted out and the camp is in bits

Rita Simon has become the fourth celebrity to leave I’m A Celebrity 2018.

Rita got the lowest number of votes from the public and said her goodbyes to the rest of camp. The 41-year-old former EastEnders star burst into tears and hugged her campmates and said: “I’m so happy, I’m happy don’t worry. I’m going, I’m going oh my god.

After campmates waved her off they headed over the bridge for an exit interview with Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly.

And Rita said she was relieved to be leaving the jungle.

She also revealed she was taken out of camp on Monday night after feeling faint when her blood sugar levels got dangerously low.

She said: “It was so much harder than I ever thought it would be. Everything I do I go in at the deep end but it is bloody hard. The thing that killed me the most was the boredom. People would go out and do tasks and I am no good at sitting around.

“The hunger, I had a mini hypoglycemia incident last night so for two days I have wondered why I was not right but I had low blood sugar levels and they took me out and they were great with it.”

The actor grinned as she walked over the famous jungle bridge back to civilisation

Asked about any potential rows, she said: “Everyone has got on so well, so no one wanted to rock the boat, I have had to bite my tongue a bit.

“In the beginning there was the squirelling away of the rice and John was in charge of that so I took issue with that.”

On the trials, she said: “I could have done more challenges and trials,

“I really am afraid of heights and I abseiled down a cliff. I am scared of water after filming in there and I have a stupid phobia but doing a challenge with water coming up was a massive deal for me. I hate insects but I am glad I did a challenge covered in them.”

She said she wanted Harry to win and added: “He is a ledge, Harry is winning just to let you know.”

Some viewers have claimed that the person leaving camp is already aware before the announcement has been made.

Noel Edmonds and Malique Thompson-Dwyer, who were first and second to go respectively, were seen holding their backpacks.

But ITV explained that all the celebs get their bags ready, and tonight it seemed all of them were told not to put their backpacks on early.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer asked: "Who else was looking for backpacks?"

Another added: "No backpacks on tonight"

A third said: "Why does no one have their backpacks on ?? you have f***ed it all up now for exposing itv"
