Food critic departs the show after struggling in the jungle

Food critic Grace Dent has left the popular reality TV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here due to medical reasons. Dent, who entered the Australian jungle just over a week ago, expressed her desire to go home in Sunday night’s episode. In a statement, ITV confirmed Dent’s departure and praised her as a great campmate who will be missed by her fellow celebrities and viewers.

Struggles in the jungle

Dent had been selected to participate in the latest Bushtucker trial, titled Down The Tubes, alongside fellow campmate Josie Gibson. However, following her departure, EastEnders actress Danielle Harold will now take Dent’s place in the trial. Prior to this, Dent had already expressed her difficulties in the jungle, stating that she had “had enough” and just wanted to go home. She admitted to struggling and feeling drained, explaining that she was putting on a brave face for everyone.

Lower audience compared to previous seasons

This year’s season of I’m A Celebrity has not garnered the same level of audience as the previous season, which featured former health secretary Matt Hancock. While the launch episode of the previous season attracted nearly 12 million viewers, the current season’s launch has only been watched by seven million in its first week. Despite this, the show continues to feature a diverse cast, including Jamie Lynn Spears, Nigel Farage, Josie Gibson, and Marvin Humes.

Notable campmates

In addition to Dent, this year’s I’m A Celebrity includes a range of well-known personalities. Made In Chelsea’s Sam Thompson, First Dates star Fred Sirieix, YouTuber Nella Rose, and actor Nick Pickard are among the other campmates participating in the show. Each brings their own unique background and experiences to the jungle, making for an interesting mix of personalities and potential conflicts.
