Gemma Collins has quit 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!'.
'The Only Way Is Essex' star has walked out of the jungle just a few days into the 14th series of the show after deciding "that jungle life is not for her".
A spokesperson for the show said: "We're sorry to see Gemma go but respect her decision and wish her well."
Before her departure from the ITV realty series, Gemma, 33, had complained about the lack of food on the show and insisted camp mates were being treated worse than criminals.
She said: "People who murder get treated better than this.
"That's the truth. Even a murderer gets fed three times a day."
She was also reduced to tears during a helicopter ride before the show had started.
The Essex-born blonde made her own way to the camp, but didn't enjoy having to travel through the wilderness.
She said: "I don't know where my camp mates are. I'm in the middle of the jungle and I'm really terrified.
"I should have just got in the chopper. It's just not even funny. How much more have I got to walk to get into this camp?
"If I'm not in that camp in three minutes, I'm quitting, it's the worst thing I've done in my life. It's a nightmare."
The drama continued when Gemma reached the camp, where she started swearing and screaming because a bug was in her hair.
Gemma's departure from the jungle will be shown during tonight's episode at 9pm on ITV.
