Restaurant critic Grace Dent has left I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! on medical grounds, ITV has announced.

A statement from a show spokesman said: “She has been a great campmate and will be missed by her fellow celebrities and viewers alike.”

MasterChef star Dent, 50, had said, before facing the Touchdown of Terror trial, that she was struggling in the jungle.

She told campmate Josie Gibson last week: “I’ve had enough. I’ve completely had enough. I just want to go home.”

And she added in the Bush Telegraph: “I haven’t got a lot left in me at the moment. I’m just keeping on a face for everybody.”

During the Touchdown of Terror trial, YouTuber Nella Rose and reality TV star Sam Thompson from the Home camp went head to head against Dent and former politician Nigel Farage from the Away team.

In a bid to win food for their respective camps, Rose and Dent had to retrieve footballs from a box filled with bugs and throw them to their teammate while wearing an American football helmet filled with jungle critters.

As more critters were added to Rose’s helmet, she pulled her emergency cord to end her time in the trial, giving the Away team a default win.

Dent was seen by a medic after the trial when a cockroach crawled into her ear, with the star saying: “There’s one in my ear! There’s one in my ear! That’s not nice, I can hear it.”

The bug was flushed from her ear and removed.

During Sunday night’s episode it was announced that Gibson and Dent would face the next trial, dubbed Down The Tubes.

EastEnders’ Danielle Harold will now take part in the trial alongside Gibson, the PA news agency understands.

On Saturday night Dent said of seeing GB News presenter and former politician Farage in his pants while he took a wash: “I just always feel like I’ve always seen Nigel Farage in his pants. I just feel like that’s always been part of my life. I can’t remember a time before Nigel Farage in his pants”.

Ahead of entering the jungle this year, Dent had said: “Everything is filling me with a real sense of dread. But I am especially dreading being really hungry because I tend to eat four or five posh meals out a week because I am a restaurant critic.”
