Olivia Attwood has been forced to quit I’m A Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here… after just one day in the jungle. 

After making history as the first Love Island personality to compete on the ITV show, the 31-year-old reality star has now left the camp after being involved in a reported ‘medical drama’. 

She is now already on her way home to be consoled by her fiancée Bradley Dack after trying in vain to beg show bosses to return to the camp.

A show spokesman told MailOnline: ‘As a precautionary measure Olivia needed to leave the jungle to undergo some medical checks. 

‘Unfortunately, the medical team has advised it is not safe for Olivia to return to camp as there needs to be further investigation. She has been absolutely brilliant and she’ll be very much missed on the show.’

Olivia’s early exit means she’s tied for the shortest stint in camp after EastEnders actress Elaine Lordan also withdrew after just 24 hours during the 2005 series when she fainted twice in one day.

Now, MailOnline takes a look back at the stars who appeared on the show for the shortest amount of time as it reaches 22 years of being on-air.

Natalie Appleton – 10 days in 2004

The All Saints singer was the third-ever celebrity to quit the jungle in 2004. lasting a grand total of ten days. 

The former girlbander decided to leave the show after being voted to undergo her fifth Bushtucker Trial, which proved to be one trial too many for the squeamish star.

She called time on the show shortly after former East 17 frontman Brian Harvey also quit the 2004 series.

Her departure was not a major surprise to viewers though, as she spent her time in camp complaining about how she was unprepared for jungle life.

On the second day Natalie told co-star Sheila Ferguson: ‘I don’t think I can do this, this is not me, I don’t think I’ve got the strength. I can’t snap out of it. I’m not mentally prepared for this right now, I can’t do it.’

Danniella Westbrook – nine days in 2003

The former soap star left the show’s second series in 2003, claiming she could no longer stand living in the jungle under the television spotlight after the public decided to vote off weather girl Sian Lloyd instead of her.

More than 11 million viewers watched her break down in tears as Lloyd got the least votes in the public vote and was the first to leave the show.

Earlier, in a direct appeal to the public, she had said: ‘Do not bother voting for me. I have had my fill of being in the camp, I have done my bit for charity.

‘Vote for the others. We have all worked for it, but I just want to get out of here. So, my life is in your hands. Don’t vote for me please.’

Danniella had a medical examination and an examination by psychologist Dr Sandra Scott before being driven to the five-star Palazzo Versace hotel on the Gold Coast to join her husband.

The tearful star walked out after telling producers she could not take it any longer.

They persuaded her to return and she went back after less than three hours. The source added: ‘This time she is definitely not coming back. The first time she went she packed all her things and was in tears. This time she just disappeared and left everything behind. She has missed her husband and kids desperately and just decided that she had to go.’

Danniella – who had a then-six-year-old son Kai and a daughter Jodie, then aged 18 months – broke down in tears, saying: ‘I can’t stand it. I really can’t. I just hate it in here. I thought it would be fun but everyone is starving and starting to feel ill and really weak.

‘I miss my kids and I miss my husband. Every day I just cry because I can’t stand it. I just can’t wait to be voted out.’

Katie Price – seven days in 2009

Katie Price entered the jungle twice. Her first appearance in 2004 led to a campsite romance with Peter Andre and an eventual marriage and two children.

But five years on her marriage was over and Katie’s heavily publicised return to the jungle had a very different outcome.

The star broke her silence on why she walked out of the I’m A Celebrity jungle after being asked to do yet another bushtucker trial.

Speaking soon after her exit from the jungle she said: ”I’m not in it to win it, it makes no odds to me. I’ve done my challenges, people can see I’m genuine. I just don’t want to be here any more.

‘It’s not about the money. I didn’t come back here for that. I really miss my kids.’

During her brief stay, the public voted for her to take part in for every single trial, with varying degrees of success, but she cracked after being told she faced a seventh, along with the former boxer Joe Bugner.

The glamour model was doused in 60,000 cockroaches, made to crawl through rat-infested tunnels and eaten all sorts of creepy-crawlies during her week in camp.

Brian Harvey – seven days in 2004

Brian quit the jungle after a blazing row with Janet Street-Porter over his flatulence.

Janet hit the roof when the former East 17 star broke wind close to where she was making dinner. She shouted at him – and he responded by packing his bags and storming out of the camp.

Furious Brian said he was sick of being ‘treated like a kid’ in front of millions of viewers. It was not the first time Janet had clashed with Brian over breaking wind. The former chart star had blamed his jungle diet.

Harvey had found it tough in the camp from day one. When he arrived in Australia he learned that his grandmother had died. He decided to carry on with the show and entered the jungle a day late.

Viewers had seen Harvey become increasingly upset by the number of flies which had found their way into his camp bed.

The meagre diet of rice had also been getting him down. ‘I don’t know how much longer I can do this,’ he complained shortly before his departure. ‘I’m being serious.’

Richard Madeley – five days in 2021

In a major blow to the show as one of their top signings, the broadcaster, who was paid an estimated £200,000 to star in the competition, was taken ill hours after participating in a gruelling trial and complaining about the Welsh castle setting’s freezing temperatures.

In a statement Richard confirmed he had to quit the series after breaking the show’s ‘Covid bubble.’

A source also told MailOnline: ‘Richard is devastated. He was doing his best in the trials and embracing every part of life in camp, this isn’t the way he saw his I’m A Celeb journey ending.

‘Richard going back to camp would pose as too much of a risk to the other contestants, who have isolated and formed a bubble to protect themselves from a possible Covid-19 outbreak on set.

‘Everyone on the show will miss him – he’s been a huge part of camp and it’s so disappointing he won’t be able to return.’

Spencer Matthews – five days in 2015

The reality star left the Australian jungle after just three days due to health concerns.

The Made In Chelsea hunk failed to reach the main camp to meet all his superstar campmates, after he was banished to Snake Rock in the days before he left the show.

An ITV spokesperson confirmed to MailOnline: ‘Spencer Matthews has left the jungle. We’re sorry to see him leave.’

A show source revealed: ‘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.’

Camilla Dallerup – four days in 2009

After three days of jungle hell, Strictly Come Dancing star Camilla Dallerup quit the reality show and made a shocking departure from the celebrity camp.

She repeatedly broke down in tears in the camp as she struggled to cope with the jungle conditions, but it finally became too much for her and she screamed, ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’

Boxing star Joe Bugner, who became one of the sport’s most hated villains in Britain after he beat Henry Cooper for the heavyweight title in 1971, has now replaced her.

Camilla told the Bush Telegraph she was worried about her health if she stayed in the jungle.

‘I’ve decided to leave the camp. I’ve had a chat with the medics and I’ve taken the decision because if I stayed any longer I could risk my health.

‘I feel really weak like I could faint any time. I don’t have any reserve. I’m a small person and I don’t have any reserve to draw on and today when I woke up its got worse every day. I just felt this was the worse I’ve ever felt.

‘I was so weak I could hardly walk down to the river and back. It feels like the right decision because my body can’t take it. I just have to listen to my body.

Camilla is comforted by Kim Woodburn as she explains that she feels she is letting the camp down

‘I had to admit today that I’m not adjusting to this environment. My body has reacted just not well. I feel completely empty. I have no energy at all. I can’t really think straight. It’s horrible. ‘The last two days have been really tough because I haven’t had the energy to help out and I felt like I had to sit still so I had energy to do what had to be done like if I got the trial or the chest. And I’m not like that, as a character.

‘I’m not someone to sit back and watch other people do it. The hardest thing for me has been how my body has reacted because it has really freaked me out.’

And later she said: ‘I’ve never had to quit anything in my life ever before.’

She told the camp: ‘I feel like I’m letting the whole team down.’

Craig Charles – four days in 2014

Coronation Street star Craig quit I’m A Celebrity – after being told his brother Dean died.

An ITV spokesperson said: ‘Craig decided to leave the IAC camp earlier today [Thursday] and will be heading back to his family the UK. We send our sincere condolences to Craig and his family.’

Will Payne from The Sun claims that the 50-year-old was informed of the death once he woke up on Thursday morning in Australia, which was Wednesday evening UK time.

Former policeman and father-of-two Dean – who had owned a bar in Spain named after his brother’s Red Dwarf character Lister – is believed to have died of a heart attack on Tuesday evening.

His ex-wife Karen told The Sun: ‘It’s a shock. He was always fit and healthy. Craig will have to leave the jungle after this.’

A show source also told The Mirror earlier in the day: ‘We took the decision not to shock Craig and wake him in middle of the night and will inform him of the sad news when he wakes up.

‘He will be allowed to do exactly what he wishes.’

The paper adds that the death of his older brother was the reason Craig ‘s number was not included in the phonelines for the latest Bushtucker Trial, The Terror Tavern.

It’s thought that there was a delay in contacting the TV actor, due to the 10-hour time difference between the UK and Australia.

Freddie Starr – three days in 2011

At the age of 68 and just a year after nearly dying from a heart attack, Freddie Starr was perhaps naïve to sign up for gruelling reality show I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

Freddie was forced out of the jungle camp in Australia after suffering an allergic reaction to one of the revolting selection of insects and animal parts he was forced to eat during a Bushtucker trial, including a camel’s toe.

He was taken to hospital after falling breathless following the task and was released yesterday after spending the night at the Cardiac Care unit at Tweed Hospital in New South Wales.

The TV veteran, who emerged from hospital pale and looking weak, told of his dismay at leaving the show – and backed former Olympic Javelin champion Fatima Whitbread to win.

Freddie – who underwent a quadruple bypass operation the previous year – had nearly been banned from joining the show after making the 10,000 mile trip Down Under and initially being refused insurance.

He said: ‘I was sick not to finish the show. I wanted to be there until the very end, but there’s no use crying over spilt milk. The decision has been made and I have to live with that.

‘ITV’s got a duty of care and it’s only right that the doctors advise them to keep me away from the jungle. It may not happen again, but we’ll never know. I was sorry to hear the news when the doctors said that I was allergic to something, and that it was best to play it safe and it’s best for me not to go back in.

‘I’ll miss everyone in the jungle and whoever wins the competition, I wish them all the luck in the world. I don’t know who will win because the voting hasn’t started yet. Once two or three start to go, you get an idea – but I’d love Fatima to win.’

Gemma Collins – three days in 2014

The boutique owner walked away after beating Ferne McCann and Jessica Wright to become the first female TOWIE star to win a place on the ITV show.

A spokesperson confirmed: ‘We’re sorry to see Gemma go but respect her decision and wish her well.’

Sources since refuted claims that a contentious 72-hour rule will enable her to collect a hefty appearance fee – despite making an early exit.

Gemma’s spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘It is absolute rubbish that Gemma will receive her full fee and this 72 hours clause does not exist in her contract.’

While the amount remains undisclosed, it is believed to exceed the £15,000 she reportedly earned for a brief appearance on Tom Daley’s diving show Splash in 2013.

An ITV spokesperson declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.

Jack Maynard – three days in 2017

The vlogger was axed from the jungle show in Australia, after resurfaced tweets that saw him using the N-word and homophobic slurs.

Jack – the younger brother of British pop sensation Conor Maynard – was subsequently accused of sending ‘inappropriate messages to a female fan’ by The Mirror.

Presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly confirmed to audiences that he would no longer take part, and neither his exit or goodbyes were aired.

It is believed that he was then ferried to a boutique hotel on Hope Island for a chat with show bosses and advisers, before heading home quickly in order to avoid speaking to the Australian press.

It was also alleged that Jack had been removed for further questioning about messages her sent to a female fan’.

Though this was not explicitly referenced in a statement from Jack’s representatives on Tuesday night, it was explained that Jack agreed to being pulled out to defend himself.

The statement read: ‘In the last few days Jack Maynard has been the subject of a succession of stories. Given his position as a contestant on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! – filmed in the Australian jungle, with no contact with the outside world, he has been unable to respond.

‘Since it is only fair that everyone should be aware of any allegations made against them and should also have the right to defend themselves, it was agreed that it would be better to bring him out of the show.

Jack agrees with this decision which was made by his representatives and ITV and thanks everyone who has supported him in the show this far.’

It was also reported that Jack will miss out on his £25,000 fee due to an ‘unwritten rule’ which states celebrities must remain in the jungle for 72 hours in order to receive it.

Elaine Lordan – one day in 2005

The title for the earliest exit from the jungle prior to Olivia, goes to ex Eastenders actress Elaine Lordan.

Elaine entered the 2005 series but had to leave the show during the first day as she collapsed twice during filming.

After spending two days in hospital doctors pronounced her ‘in good health’ and she was discharged, but ITV bosses decided it was too risky to allow her back into camp.

The actress, 39 at the time, later revealed she began to felt ill during the long walk into camp.

‘The first bit was absolutely brilliant, going up in the helicopter and then we landed and it all changed. Then the walk was much tougher than I could have imagined. The tightrope was really hard.

‘I can’t explain what happened the day I had that seizure. I’ve heard lots of descriptions of it. I can’t help but laugh about it now although it’s not funny.

‘I have a vague surreal memory of gripping Sid (Owen’s) hand and saying ‘help me’.’

She told Ant and Dec she thought ‘tiredness’ had got to her, adding: ‘It was being exhausted and hungry.’

‘It was very difficult. I don’t think I’m what you would call a natural camper. Never ever will I ever go camping again. I can categorically state that now.’

Olivia Attwood QUITS I’m A Celebrity after just 24 hours: Love Island star is forced to withdraw from camp on ‘medical grounds’ as she jets back to the UK for ‘further investigations’

Olivia Attwood has been forced to quit I’m A Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here… after just one day in the jungle. 

After making history as the first Love Island personality to compete on the ITV show, the 31-year-old reality star has now left the camp after being involved in a reported ‘medical drama’. 

She is now already on her way home to be consoled by her fiancée Bradley Dack after trying in vain to beg show bosses to return to the camp.

It’s a shock blow to the ITV series, which returned on Sunday night with two million more viewers than last year, after spending two years being filmed in Wales due to the Covid pandemic. 

Olivia has not spoken publicly about any health issues. She previously confessed that she is left ‘constantly overwhelmed’ by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and has taken medication for anxiety and depression. 

During the action-packed launch show, Olivia’s jungle experience got off to a pleasant start when she was chosen to be a VIP campmate by the audience and chose fellow campmate Chris Moyles, 48, to be her companion for a lavish meal in a roped-off area. 

The reality star and the radio legend were then given a ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’ as they faced the ultimate skydive entrance.

Chris and Olivia had been enjoying their meal when they received some information, which read: ‘Olivia and Chris, we hope you enjoyed your meal. It’s now time to begin your journey into camp and as VIPs you’re going to get a taste of the high life by jumping out of a chopper at 10,000ft.’

Chris said to Olivia: ‘You take me for a prawn and then in a helicopter – you’re a s*** date;’ as Olivia laughed: ‘It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. I just need to get back on safe ground in one piece – both boobs, all the veneers, everything.’

After completing the jump first, an emotional Olivia said: ‘Oh my god I’m crying, that’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever done, ever. That is incredible. Top 10 experience of my life. Just amazing.’

Taking in her surroundings she added: ‘I didn’t expect to be landing on a beach – where the hell are we?’

Olivia rose to fame on Love Island in 2017, where she coupled up with Chris Hughes, and has since fronted her own reality series, Olivia Meets Her Match starring her footballer fiancée, Bradley, as well as an ITV2 docu-series on the sex industry.

Olivia announced her engagement to Bradley in October 2019, sharing sweet snaps of the couple on a beach in Dubai after the footballer popped the question. She admitted prior to entering the jungle that sex would be the thing she will miss most in the outback.

Other fans penned: ‘devastated fans penned: ‘the way we’ve been robbed of Olivia Attwood annihilating Matt Hancock in less than a day #ImACeleb’ ; Olivia attwood gone after a day?? Fs wanted her to pop off at Matt Hancock #ImACeleb #ImACelebrity

Olivia’s final scenes will air on Monday night’s show when she takes on a gruesome challenge.  

Elsewhere on Sunday’s launch show, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly confirmed there will be two extra arrivals to the camp and poked fun at Tory MP Matt Hancock.  

After the former Health Secretary’s appearance on the show was widely publicised, Dec quipped: ‘You are going to be surprised, guys. We are going to be rolling out the welcome mat for them soon.’

Matt, 44, was seen arriving in Australia earlier this week after it emerged he was going to make a controversial appearance on the show. He will also be joined later in the series by comedian Seann Walsh.

Funnyman Seann was caught kissing his Strictly Come Dancing professional partner Katya Jones in 2018 when he appeared on the show while he was dating actress Rebecca Humphries. 

This year’s series has returned to the jungle for the first time in three years after the coronavirus pandemic meant recent series have been filmed in Gwrych Castle in Wales as travel restrictions prevented journeying Down Under. 

Viewers at home were delighted by the comeback of the hit show, admitting that it felt like ‘normal service had resumed’ after filming returned to Australia following two years in north Wales.

On Sunday, Chris Moyles was the first celebrity to arrive in a luxurious black Rolls Royce. The star admitted he was hoping to endear himself to the public, saying: ‘People are going to be so pleased to see Chris Moyles. 

‘They’re going to say, ‘Wow, he’s so much nicer than I thought he was going to be. He’s not an a**ehole.”

Following on from Chris was former Love Island star Olivia. She said: ‘I do think that with reality TV people in general there is an idea that we’re lacking in the brains department and I’m going to confirm that.’

Of the show’s tough trials, she said: ‘My nerves are not actually trial-based. They’re more actually living with other people but I got used to that on Love Island… I think the shower and toilet stuff doesn’t actually phase me! I pee in the garden every time I go out.’

Charlene White was the third star to make appearance on the show. The ITV newsreader and Loose Women anchor said: ‘Of all the shows I said I was never going to do, I’m A Celeb was definitely one of those… How do I think I’m going to cope? I’m not an outdoorsy person.’

Charlene has previously said she would not be able to resist crying on the show as she struggles to cope with the tough jungle living conditions.

The fourth celebrity to appear on screens was former England footballer Jill Scott. The Lionesses star said on entry: ‘My biggest achievement was winning the Euros against Germany. 90,000 people at Wembley. The best day of my life. My next step is entering the jungle which I’m very excited about.

Comedian and actor Babatunde Aleshe was the fifth star to enter, meeting the rest of the celebrities at a lavish villa: ‘I definitely don’t like rats. I had a hamster once and I was really scared of it.’

‘Can I camp? No! I’m not that crazy. Do I have survival skills? Yes! I’m from Tottenham. We run.

‘I’m scared of everything. Rats, spiders, snakes and at the top of that is frogs… Have you ever seen a toad?! Toads are huge! This is Australia, man. They’ve got animals that they ain’t even discovered yet.’

The group was greeted by hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly who expressed their excitement at being back in Australia after two years, after the show was held in Wales due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The duo explained the stars would not be heading into the jungle together, with one of the stars being named a Jungle VIP – Olivia was voted for the role by the public.

She was able to choose one of her fellow contestants to join her for a VIP meal at the villa, with Olivia choosing radio DJ Chris.

The rest of the group were told they would be leaving the villa and that they would have to earn their food on their way to their camp.

Chris said: ‘I think VIP realistically means we get to have a plate of fruit and then we get to do something that scares the living s**t out of me.’

Ant and Dec explained that VIP actually means Very Isolated Person.

Olivia told Chris on why she chose him as her VIP: ‘I know you’ve got a good sense of humour and we’re obviously going to spend some time together so we can have a laugh.’

Jill, Babtunde and Charlene were then seen lifting off in a helicopter and flying over the Pacific Ocean towards a 32-storey tall tower block to take part in the infamous ‘Walk The Plank’ challenge.

Gripping: They were told there were three stars for collection which they could exchange for meals and they needed to walk to the end of the plank, let go of the rope securing them and they would win their meals for camp

They were told there were three stars for collection which they could exchange for meals and they needed to walk to the end of the plank, let go of the rope securing them and they would win their meals for camp.

While Charlene quickly made her way out to the end of the plank, which was swiftly removed so she could not turn back, Babatunde had to fight his instincts to convince himself to take tiny steps forward.

The comedian was unable to walk to the end and called ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ and walked backwards to the roof of the building to return to safety.

Jill was able to quickly complete the task, marching towards the end of the plank without a second guess.

Both Charlene and Jill were then tasked with standing on a slant at the end of the plank and leaning forward to look over the edge while holding on to a wire behind them.

To complete the task both Jill and Charlene had to let go of the rope and launch themselves off the end of the plank where they were left suspended in mid air on a wire.

Brave: While Charlene quickly made her way out to the end of the plank, which was swiftly removed so she could not turn back, Babatunde had to fight his instincts to convince himself to take tiny steps forward

After enjoying their lavish meal together at the villa, Olivia and Chris were seen making their way to the helicopter to complete a skydive over the water off the coast of the city of Surfers Paradise, Queensland and onto a sandy beach.

After jumping out of the aircraft from 10,000 feet, and screaming all the way down, Olivia excitedly declared: ‘That was the most incredible experience of my life! I’m crying!’

With Olivia’s VIP pal Chris having landed safely on the beach, only for the pair to have no clue where they were, the next five celebrities were welcomed onto the show.

Singer Boy George was heard saying he’s perfect for the show because he’s a ‘natural born show off’ before he was joined by Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver.

Hollyoaks star Owen Warner was then seen arriving by boat after saying his worst jungle nightmare would be encountering snakes.

A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas then made an entrance, saying she will bring her excellent cooking skills to the jungle camp to contribute.

The final of the second lot of five celebrities to arrive was former rugby player Mike Tindall, who advised his fellow contenders ‘not to choose fear’ when taking part in the gruelling jungle tasks.

George was chosen as the VIP for this group, with the performer opting for Scarlette to join him for a meal on a luxury yacht.

Sue, Owen and Mike were seen jetting off in the helicopter before landing in the jungle where they were tasked with completing a number of puzzles.

They were seen rowing across a lake to different games in a bid to collect a number of stars to exchange for meals in camp.

Each member of the group was seen climbing into tanks where they were confronted with a variety of creepy crawlies, including spiders and maggots.

Grand entrance: Boy George was the first of the second lot of five stars to arrive on the show, making an appearance on one of his typically flamboyant outfits

Meanwhile, Boy George and Scarlette finished their meal and they were then tasked with rowing to meet Chris and Olivia on their remote desert island.

The other eight contestants were then seen making their way into camp where Babatunde amused himself as he was unable to start the campfire.

He laughed in the Beach Hut as he was joined by sportsman Mike who instantly sparked up the flames to keep the group warm.
