I'm A Celeb fans were left shocked when ITV announced that Jamie Lynn Spears had left the show yesterday (29 November).

In the days prior, the mum-of-two left viewers fearing she may leave after threatening to walk out followings claims she was struggling being away from her kids.

After dubbing the challenges as 'torture' and breaking down in tears, Jamie Lynn followed suit - who shares 15-year-old Maddie with ex Casey Aldridge and five-year-old Ivey with husband Jamie Watson - and went on to declare 'I quit'.

"I hate it here so much, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it here," she previously hit out while in the Bush Telegraph.

"This place is where people go to have the worst days of their lives."

ITV later released an official statement on the matter, in which it announced: "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."

And today (30 November), the 32-year-old has broken her silence on her exit.

She explained the reasoning behind her departure in a statement posted to Instagram.

Sharing a snap in her jungle-ready gear, Jamie Lynn wrote: "I can’t wait to share with y’all everything about this once in a lifetime experience.

"But I don’t even know where to start when trying to describe what an incredibly special time and place I had with some of the absolute best humans I have ever met and consider family now.

"THANK YALL for welcoming me into your living rooms night after night, and for supporting me through all the highs and lows. I’m am so grateful for this show, and all of the wonderful people apart of it!

According to The Sun, the I'm A Celeb crew were on 'high alert' and Jamie Lynn was allegedly deemed a 'flight risk'.

The outlet reported: "We can now reveal that Jamie has been in exit talks with execs for days, with a number of high-level discussions involving ITV’s logistic teams and her own management behind the scenes.

"ITV bosses were able to support Jamie Lynn through 11 days on the show, as success in the Climb of Cruelty and Scarena Series buoyed her and delayed the inevitable."

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs on ITV Sunday to Friday at 9pm and Saturday at 9.30pm.
