Limahl was "really, really surprised" to be voted off 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' yesterday (22.11.12) because he was convinced the public would keep him on the ITV1 reality show after he entered the Australian jungle later than the majority of his fellow campmates
Limahl was "really, really surprised" to be voted off 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The Kajagoogoo singer was convinced the public would keep him on the ITV1 reality show because he only arrived on day five and was having fun, so he found it "quite a shock" when he became the second person to leave the Australian jungle-based programme yesterday (22.11.12).
He said: "I was really, really surprised, I didn't even pack my things - I thought, 'Well, it won't be me because I'm late and I'm having a good time.' And I felt that I'd made a good contribution and communicated with lots of people ... so it was quite a shock."
While Limahl was disappointed to see his chances of being crowned King of the Jungle destroyed after just seven days on the show, he admits spending time in the jungle started to get "too much" for him yesterday.
He explained: "I was very weak which is why I think I had a mini breakdown yesterday ... everything is intensified and it just became too much.
"I honestly didn't think I was going to cope. It really isn't how it appears when you're in the comfort of your own home on the sofa watching at home. Being there is very different."
Limahl admits he found it tough being so far away from home without any electricity, and that was made harder by the fact he was trying to get along with 11 celebrity "egos".
Speaking to ITV1's 'This Morning', he added: "The hardest thing was being 10,000 of miles away from home, away from your loved ones and partner, being cut off from the world.
"There are no clocks in there, you don't know what time of day it is, you are hungry, you have no electricity ... and you're in a situation with 12 strong personalities - egos if you like - and you have to try to navigate through this minefield."
