She's arguably been the most entertaining personality to watch on this year's I'm a Celebrity.... Get Me Out Of Here.

But ITV has confirmed that Gemma Collins has quit the show, becoming the first contestant to leave.

After struggling with jungle life, the TOWIE star told producers she wanted to leave permanently.

A spokesperson for ITV said: "We're sorry to see Gemma go but respect her decision and wish her well."

No official reason has been given for the exit.
