Olivia Attwood's fiancé has spoken out after the I'm a Celeb contestant was forced to quit the show due to health reasons.
The Love Island finalist said farewell to the camp after spending just a day in the Australian jungle.
The 31-year-old had to withdraw from the reality programme on medical grounds and she's now on her way home in the UK.
"Olivia was involved in a medical drama overnight," an insider told The Sun on Monday.
"She really wanted to go back into the camp but medics won't let her."
"I just saw it in the news, like anyone else," fiancé Bradley Dack told Mail Online. "She'll be gutted. I think she's fine, but I haven't spoken to her."
The unfortunate news comes after reality TV fans saw Attwood make history as the first former Islander to make their way into the jungle in the opening episode last night (6 November).
She was voted the jungle VIP by viewers at home and this saw Attwood have the ability to enjoy her first - and now only - night in the jungle with a meal.
The reality TV star was allowed to pick another celebrity to join her, and she bestowed that honour to radio DJ Chris Moyles.
"I am equal parts flattered and unnerved the public voted for me to be a VIP," she said in reaction to the news. "I'm guessing they know more of what that entails than I do."
One of the highlights from Olivia's short stint in the jungle will probably be jumping out of a plane to begin her adventure.
The jaw-dropping 10,000ft leap at the start of the series is one way to make an entrance and makes stepping forward in Love Island look easy peasy in comparison.
She said afterwards: "Oh my god I'm crying, that's the most amazing thing I've ever done, ever. That is incredible. Top 10 experience of my life. Just amazing."
The Olivia Meets Her Match star was looking forward to entering the jungle, which makes her premature exit even more sad.
In a statement released by ITV ahead of her entrance, she 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.
"One of the things that will be nice will be to show a different side to me. I think people think I am high maintenance and I will struggle without make-up and nails but I am not that bothered and I think that might surprise people.
“I am happy to muck in. It will also be nice to have a digital detox."
