Former Strictly Come Dancing champion and model Camilla Dallerup has quit the I'm a Celeb jungle just days after the show began.
She told show bosses shed had enough after enduring a torrid time in the jungle and begged to be released.
She becomes the first jungle casualty of the new series. She will be replaced by ex- British boxer, Joe Bugner.
Dallerup had been struggling to adapt to life in the jungle. On Tuesday night's show she was seen being comforted by late arrival Katie Price after she woke up in a panic claiming she was unwell and feverish.
The following morning Camilla still felt ill and weak and confessed to Hollyoaks star Stuart Manning: Ive never felt this weak. Im thinking what a hard job it is to get to the shower. Its not eating. Heat, I can deal with. Ive got the highest metabolism of anyone I know. I feel useless being here so tired. You cant help anyone.
The ballroom dancer had repeatedly broken down in tears on the show, with hunger and exhaustion adding to the 35-year-old's woes
As she lay in her bed sobbing, she told campmates she was struggling to speak properly and admitted to being concerned that her brain wasnt functioning properly.
Interior designer Justin Ryan told the Bushtucker Telegraph: "Camillas really unwell. Shes been very, very tired. Shes got a really fast metabolic rate and is incredibly slim anyway.
"Shes very, very weepy and almost about to become hysterical I would say."
Campmates attempted to get her to eat some chocolate to bring her blood sugar level up. Snooker legend Jimmy White, meanwhile, pointed out: "Shes been struggling with her sleep, poor cow."
Her replacement on the show is 59-year old ex-boxer Joe Bugner, who was one of the top ranked heavyweight contenders of the 1970s. He twice fought Muhammad Ali.
As the former International Heavyweight Boxing Champion, he was the undefeated European, British, and Commonwealth Champion, retaining the three titles for nine consecutive years.
