Spencer Matthews has quit 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!'

The 27-year-old reality TV star, who joined the show late as a contestant on Tuesday night (17.11.15) alongside Ferne McCann and Vicky Pattison, left the jungle "on medical grounds" today (20.11.15) before even entering the main camp.

A spokesperson for the series said: "Spencer Matthews has left the jungle. We're sorry to see him leave."

An insider added: "He has left the jungle on medical grounds.

"He was a great booking and was shaping up to be a great character. We are sorry to see him go."

The 'Made in Chelsea' star had been expected to enter the main camp with the other contestants in a few days after being banished to Snake Rock.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I don't think it was one incident or accident that caused this. It was a huge shock and Spencer had been doing so well."

Spencer previously admitted he was eager to challenge himself on the show.

He said: "I would love to win, but that's not why I'm here. I'd like to become a bit more vulnerable.

"I want to be challenged, physically and mentally. I enjoy putting myself through strenuous experiences - whether it be sporting experiences or giving myself goals.

"I'd like to be a finalist. I'd like to be there for the duration. That's my main aim. The popularity contest as such isn't why I'm here, but I'd like to see it through. I'd like to be one of the last people standing."
