Jamie Lynn Spears leaves I’m A Celebrity on medical grounds | Ents & Arts News

Jamie Lynn Spears has become the second contestant to leave I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on medical grounds.

A spokesperson for the ITV show confirmed to Sky News that Britney Spears‘ sister had departed the set on Wednesday afternoon.

She follows Grace Dent, whose departure was confirmed on Saturday, telling her fellow campmates that her “heart is broken” after leaving the set early.

The spokesperson said: “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.”

Sky News understands the 32-year-old has now left the camp and her fellow campmates are aware that she won’t be returning.

Her last appearance on the show will be in Wednesday night’s UK episode.

Spears had threatened to quit last week after just a few days when she became emotional because she was missing her children.

During the episode on November 21, she told her campmates she was finding it difficult to be so far away from her family.

Her emotions bubbled up further when four celebrities were tasked with a challenge to win the contestants’ luxury items, with hers being a photo of her two daughters.

Late last week, Dent, 50, had been due to face the bushtucker trial, Down The Tubes, in Monday night’s instalment.

But Hollyoaks actor Nick Pickard read out a statement to the camp in which Dent announced she was leaving early.

“My dear campmates, I’m so sorry to let you down. I have left the camp for medical reasons,” she said in her statement.

“My heart is broken, I have loved and enjoyed getting to know you all. You’ve held me up and it’s been a pleasure being your friend through this experience.

“Leaving you all at this stage will be one of the saddest things in my life. I love you all. Your friend, Miss Grace Dent.”

She was later spotted flying back to London from Australia.

Other celebrities on this year’s show include the controversial politician Nigel Farage, First Dates star Fred Sirieix and JLS singer Marvin Humes.

The show has so far attracted a lower audience than last year’s series, which featured former health secretary Matt Hancock.

This year’s launch was watched by seven million people in its first week – down from a consolidated audience of nearly 12 million last year.
