Linford Christie became the latest star to leave the 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' jungle on last night's (30.11.10) show

Linford Christie became the latest star to be voted off 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' last night (30.11.10).

On hearing the news he had received the lowest proportion of the public vote, the Olympic gold medallist jumped into the air, telling hosts Ant and Dec he'd "had enough".

He said: "Oh God, I have had enough, I had enough days ago."

The 50-year-old athlete - who assumed the role of leader in the jungle camp the stars have been living in for the past two-and-a-half weeks - admitted despite putting on a brave face, he was "scared" of a lot of the critters he had to deal with during his time on the ITV1 show.

Linford explained: "There are things in there which scared me but you can't let on. They see me as the leader and the motivator and you just have to be brave.

"When you've got to do something for the team you've just got to get on with it, it comes from my athletics training."

Meanwhile, comedians Dom Joly and Jenny Eclair have both threatened to quit the show because they are "bored".

Dom told the 'Grumpy Old Women' star: "I've had it with this endless round of conversation. I need to talk to someone else. If you weren't here I would have walked."
