I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! fans were dealt a devastating double-whammy of bad news this week after two stars left the show.
The former MasterChef star appeared vacant after being selected to complete in a dreaded Bushtucker Trial alongside Josie Gibson on Sunday night (26 November).
And just yesterday (29 November), US singer and actor Jamie Lynn Spears resigned from the show after she previously threatened to walk out, claiming she had been finding it difficult being away from her kids.
After Jamie Lynn was seen telling her campmates 'I quit', ITV producers released a statement revealing that she'd left the jungle on 'medical grounds'.
"She's been a fantastic campmate who has triumphed at trials and bonded well with her fellow celebrities," the statement added.
And with bad news famously coming in threes, fans of the show were left further alarmed after it was announced that YouTube star Nella Rose had been taken out following 'medical concerns'.
Addressing the missing influencer, Dec told viewers: "Now unfortunately, Nella is being seen by the medic so she'll be back later, but it means she's now exempt from this trial."
ITV later confirmed that 'Nella has since rejoined camp'.
While it may sound as though there's something in the water of the creek that has caused (almost) three celebs to flee, producers have claimed that it is likely due to something else entirely.
ITV bosses have allegedly claimed that both dismal weather and jungle storms would have been contributing factors as to why Grace and Jamie Lynn packed their bags.
"The weather in the jungle this year has been terrible," the source told MailOnline.
"The campmates have had barely one full day of sunshine and have had to contend with endless rain which has only made the already gruelling living conditions worse.
"The weather has really affected the mood in camp. Everyone is miserable and wanting to leave."
The insider went on: "The forecast predicts more sunshine next week so hopefully that will make everyone happier and give them all a boost."
Rain in the camp has not let up since this year's stars flew Down Under, with the jungle being hit by thunderstorm before they'd arrived.
Last year's star and DJ Chris Moyles later revealed that there is a retractable white canopy that hangs over the main camp, keeping the celebrities partially covered and protected.
"People working on the show aren't sleeping," the source added. "It is a mess. Nobody can keep up with what is going on, it is like nothing we have ever seen before.
"Hopefully things will settle down but it is fair to say things have been chaotic. As with all of these things, the truth is expected to come out in the coming weeks.
"As for now, everyone else involved in the show is thinking 'whatever next?'"
