The celebrity restaurant critic has left the show

Grace Dent has left I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The celebrity food critic joined fellow stars including Jamie Lynn Spears, Sam Thompson, Nigel Farage and Fred Sirieix in the jungle this year, where she’s already taken on some pretty brutal challenges.

However, her time on I'm A Celebrity has now come to an end.

A spokesperson for ITV told LADbible: "Unfortunately Grace Dent has left the show on medical grounds.

"She has been a great campmate and will be missed by her fellow celebrities and viewers alike.”

On last night’s episode, Dent admitted: "I just want to go home,” while viewers were concerned about how quiet the star was in camp and questioned whether she was ‘sick’.

In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, one viewer said: "Grace looks so sick on #ImACeleb @imacelebrity I hope she’s ok.”

Another said: "Is Grace ok?? Think she needs checking on she looks so deflated #ImACeleb.”

While a third wrote: “Someone should check Grace's pulse. That girl does not look well. #ImACeleb.”

A source close to Dent told the Mirror: "She is heading back to London today. She is tired and she just wants to get home."

Viewers may have spotted that Dent was chosen to take part in this evening's Bushtucker Trial - but the Mirror reports that Danielle Harold will now take Dent's place in the Bushtucker Trial alongside Josie Gibson.

Speaking ahead of her entrance into the jungle, Dent said: “Everything is filling me with a real sense of dread. But I am especially dreading being really hungry because I tend to eat four or five posh meals out a week because I am a restaurant critic.

“I know they are going to give me an eating trial and I am dreading putting even worse things in my mouth than I have in the past in fancy restaurants!

"I think I will be writing very stiff columns about the jungle food when I come out!"

Dent also stressed that she didn’t want to be the first person to leave the show.

She added: “I am just determined to not go out first. And if I can get quite far, I would be really pleased. I don’t want my life to be different when I finish this programme. I don’t want to change anything at all but this is such a great challenge. It’s going to be fun.”
