I'm A Celeb has had its very first eviction with Frankie Dettori being the first to be voted out the camp.
Frankie has since spoke about on his experiences on I'm A Celeb and has called out ITV for a choice that apparently lead to him being booted off the show first.
The 52-year-old sportsman only entered the show on the fifth day and revealed to The Mirror exactly what it was like joining the programme as a latecomer.
He said: "Everybody had already bonded for four days. So I'm, you know, the new kid who arrived in a new school afterwards.
"It took a while to break the ice and be accepted to get to know everyone, I'm not going to lie about it.
"And speaking to my wife, she said, you know, I had very little airtime and I thought I had done a lot."
The Italian jockey continued: "It all depends how it is edited to the programme. But you know what? To me, I have come out of there as a winner.
"I challenged myself. I passed every challenge. And, I like to say it could have been two weeks or three weeks, it wouldn't have made no difference.
"I just felt like I did everything I wanted to achieve and I'm very proud of what I did."
Tyla has reached out to ITV for comment.
Opening up further about his time Down Under, the three-time British flat racing Champion jockey added: "Going to the jungle it's not a race when you are actually in control.
"It's the public in control. It's the media, it's the social media. I mean, I feel like a winner because every challenge I took, I did it and I took it head on I never ducked out to anything."
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs on ITV Sunday to Friday at 9pm and Saturday at 9.30pm.
