I’m A Celebrity bosses are concerned that more campmates may follow in the footsteps of Grace Dent and leave the show due to recent events that have brought additional misery to the stars.
Conditions Worsen for Campmates
Since food critic Grace Dent quit earlier this week after enduring challenging trials and nine days of tough camp life, the conditions have only gotten worse.
More storms have hit the camp, following a brief respite from rain. Additionally, rations have reached an all-time low due to influencer Nella Rose failing another trial alongside Frankie Dettori.
According to a source, Nella Rose, who has already quit two challenges, had the opportunity to bring back food and treats but failed to do so during the Dreaded Bed challenge in the Misery Motel, which was filled with snakes. This has left the camp feeling desperate, and show bosses are worried that more stars may decide to quit.
A source shared, “Nella and Frankie’s trial was a complete failure. No coins or stars. What’s worse is that it took two months to build that set, and it resulted in a terrible trial. Her returning empty-handed, combined with the awful weather, has created a real sense of misery.”
Even hosts Ant and Dec expressed their frustration at the lack of strategy, with Ant exclaiming, “I’m furious, what the hell is wrong with these people! All of you worked so hard to make that trial a good one!”
Nella Rose’s Struggles
Nella Rose has already been voted by ITV viewers to take on multiple challenges, two of which she quit. She apologized to her fellow campmates, saying, “I’m sorry guys, I’m sorry. I’ve let myself down, I’ve let my team down.”
She had previously mentioned that if singer Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn had left the show, she would have been right behind her. Nella admitted, “I’ve never, ever in my life started something and finished it. Ever. I always quit.”
Jamie Lynn, who was homesick and miserable, also contemplated leaving the show, stating, “I hate it here so much. This place is where people come to have the worst days of their lives. I think I’ve got to leave.”
Bookies now have Nella Rose at odds of 4/1 to quit the series.
Grace Dent’s Departure
Grace Dent left the show on medical grounds and arrived at Heathrow Airport yesterday.
Challenges and Triumphs
In other news from last night’s episode, former boxer Tony Bellew, telly presenter Marvin Humes, and Made in Chelsea’s Sam Thompson took on a series of challenges to win money for a jungle vending machine. The lads were successful, with Marvin finding all ten coins, and Tony and Sam finding seven.
However, Jamie Lynn was left in tears after her campmates chose to buy chocolate instead of her requested luxury item, a photo of her children.
