Real reason Jamie Lynn Spears quit I’m A Celebrity

Real reason Jamie Lynn Spears quit I’m A Celebrity

Jamie Lynn Spears has quit I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

Earlier today, we found out that Jamie Lynn Spears has quit I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! and now, the reason why has been suggested.

An ITV spokesperson said of her sudden departure: "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."

The singer and actor followed Grace Dent's exit from the show earlier this week, who also left the show on medical grounds after her sudden departure was announced on Monday.

The Masterchef star said her departure from I'm A Celeb was 'one of the saddest things in my life'.

Dent's statement said: "My dear campmates, I’m so sorry to let you down. I have left the camp for medical reasons. 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.”

And while she hasn't had to leave the camp as well, Nella Rose paid a visit to the medics before Spears made her exit.

But don't worry, it doesn't look like Rose is going anywhere as an ITV spokesperson said: "During last night's live broadcast, Nella Rose required medical treatment on site and was deemed unable to take part in the trial.

"Nella has since rejoined camp."

Now, a source has provided a comment on why they think Britney's younger sister left the jungle earlier today.

They told The Sun: “Jamie Lynn was a flight risk from day one and while she experienced some highs, excelling in trials and forming special bonds in camp, ultimately she couldn’t get past the lows.

“Talks with logistical teams have been underway for days now, with an exit as early as Saturday mooted, then pushed back, after Jamie had a good day or so.

“But it proved too much and after Grace left the writing was on the wall for Jamie - it would mean she wasn’t the first one out.”

Spears joins a list of celebs who have had to leave I'm A Celeb on 'medical grounds' over the years.

Back in 2022, Love Island's Olivia Attwood left very early in to the series after just 24 hours.

Other stars to exit in the past include Lady Colin Campbell in 2015, Richard Madeley in 2021 and Brian Conley in 2012.
