Jamie Lynn Spears left ITV viewers in shock after quitting the ongoing series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! after just 11 days Down Under.
ITV later confirmed this was the reason for the 32-year-old's premature departure from the show, saying in a statement: "Jamie Lynn Spears has left I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! on medical grounds.
"She's been a fantastic campmate who has triumphed at trials and bonded well with her fellow celebrities."
Many viewers believed it may have been the long distance between Jamie Lynn and her two daughters, Maddie, 15, and Ivey, five, after she broke down in tears before her exit was announced by producers.
On 21 November, just days after she entered the jungle, Jamie Lynn had been hoping to get her luxury items - two pictures of her children - only to be left disappointed after her campmates unfortunately failed to do so.
Clearly devastated by the news, she headed to the Bush Telegraph and bawled her eyes out while branding the challenge as 'torture' and claiming it wasn't fair to put such a big responsibility on her fellow campmates.
Coming to the end of her tether, Jamie Lynn went on to declare 'I quit' while her fellow campers tried to comfort her.
Since then, fans of the show have wondered whether the star - who also happens to be the little sister of chart-topping singer Britney Spears - would be well enough to wait in Australia for her co-stars to leave the show.
The eliminated stars usually reside at a five-star hotel until the series ends and the 'coming out show' is filmed, with the stars being voted off one-by-one.
But Jamie Lynn has left her fans thoroughly disappointed by revealing she has actually flown back to the US, and she even appeared in the final of Dancing with the Stars.
Prior to her jungle stint, the mother-of-two had competed in the celebrity talent series alongside professional partner Alan Bersten, but the two were voted off in the second week.
Sharing an Instagram Story of the moment she surprised toe-tapping pal Alan, she wrote: "Still not 100% but I had to show up for my guy."
Jamie Lynn then proceeded to share a series of snaps from the dance show, in which she can be seen posing in a sparkling gold dress alongside several members of the cast.
Some I'm A Celeb viewers have since hit out at the actor.
Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter) to share Jamie Lynn's story, one wrote: "Hang on a minute. Jamie-Lynn left the jungle due to medical grounds & is now back on Dancing With The Stars in USA?
"So she just so happens to fall ill & leave in time for the DWTS finale? Do me a favour! #ImACeleb #ImACelebrity #DWTS #DWTSFinale."
Another went on: "If you believe she was really sick I have some prime real estate in Florida to sell you. She has a history of quitting reality shows. Sad as I was enjoying her adventure, but I don't think she cared about winning it."
