I'm a Celeb is airing at a different time tonight

I'm a Celeb is airing at a different time tonight

The hit show usually kicks off at 9:00pm, but not tonight

It’s barely been on our screens for 48 hours yet, but this year’s I’m a Celebrity is shaping up to be one of the most dramatic seasons in recent memory.

Namely because one campmate, Love Island’s Olivia Attwood, sensationally left the camp after barely 24 hours, with ITV citing health concerns.

It’s probably safe to say that considering the show’s explosive start, most of us can’t wait to tune in to tonight’s (8 November) I’m a Celeb instalment - but be warned, it’s starting at a different time this evening.

The hit show usually kicks off at 9:00pm, but tonight will air after The Martin Lewis Money Show at 9:15 pm.

But back to the question on everyone’s lips: why did Olivia actually leave the show?

Well, late last night (7 November) her team released a statement on Instagram that only seems to stoke speculation.

The statement read: “To say Olivia is heartbroken would be an understatement, she dreamed of doing I'm a Celeb for years, and was absolutely loving every second of the show and throwing herself into jungle life feet first (just as we knew she would).

"However, for reasons beyond her control her journey has been cut short.

"Your support and kind words have meant the world to her now as much as it always has.

"You will hear the truth from Olivia in due course and she will be back on your screens in the New Year."

They added: "PS. Who's going to roast Matt Hancock now?"

Shortly after it was announced that Olivia had left the jungle, her fiance Bradley Dack spoke to MailOnline and confessed he wasn’t exactly sure what was going on.

Olivia broke her silence.

He said: “I just saw it in the news, like anyone else. She'll be gutted. I think she's fine, but I haven't spoken to her. I'm waiting for a call.”

Meanwhile, an insider told The Sun: “Olivia was involved in a medical drama overnight. She really wanted to go back into the camp but medics won't let her.”

In a statement released by ITV ahead of her entrance, Olivia said being part of the 2022 lineup hadn't 'sunk in' yet and the whole thing felt 'surreal'.

She said: “Being part of I’m A Celebrity still hasn’t sunk in yet and when I first got the call to take part, I didn’t really believe it!

“It felt surreal because taking part in the jungle is the absolute pinnacle. It’s the crème de la crème of all shows and obviously I didn’t have to think about it. I said yes immediately.”
