Gillian McKeith has become the latest star to be eliminated from 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!'

The TV nutritionist - who refused to take part in a number of gruesome Bushtucker Trials on the ITV1 show - admitted she was thrilled to be leaving last night (29.11.10) after surviving for more than two weeks in the jungle, which she described as "like a horror movie".

She told hosts Ant and Dec: "I'm so happy, I'm so happy I cannot tell you! I'm the happiest person alive.

"I was petrified I was going to have to do more trials. I must have lost my marbles to do this show. I didn't think I was going to get picked to do all these trials. I thought I would be cooking all the time.

"The first day I thought that would be it and then each day it would start again and the anxiety levels grew into panic attack mode - I felt as thought I was on high alert all the time."

However, the 'You Are What You Eat' star hit back at critics - including camp mates Shaun Ryder and Dom Joly - who thought her dramatic faint live on air was fake.

She said: "I have a history of fainting, it's not something that I would ever want to do - it feels horrible. When I stood up my legs felt like jelly and then I woke up with the mask on. It's horrible."

When asked who she wants to be crowned winner of 'I'm A Celebrity...' on Saturday night (4.12.10), Gillian said: "Stacey, without a doubt - she's definitely the queen of the jungle in my book."
