The Love Island star is the first celeb to leave the jungle

Olivia Attwood has quit I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! after just 24 hours in the jungle.

The Love Island star, 31, had been voted a ‘VIP’ by the public and – not knowing that it meant ‘Very Isolated Person’ – chose Chris Moyles to join her.

This saw the pair have to skydive out of a helicopter before joining Boy George and Scarlette Douglas as they were marooned on a desert island.

But after just a day, Attwood has had to quite the show on medical grounds. Medics refused to let her return to the show despite her wishes.

She is believed to already be on her way home to the UK to be with fiancé Bradley Dack, the Mirror reports.

A show spokesperson said: “As a precautionary measure Olivia needed to leave the jungle to undergo medical checks.

“Unfortunately, the medical team has advised that it is not safe for Olivia to return to camp as there needs to be further investigation.

“She has been absolutely brilliant and she’ll be very much missed on the show.”

After enjoying a meal with radio DJ Chris Moyles, the pair were then given their first challenge of jumping out of a helicopter at 10,000ft.

“Oh my god I’m crying, that’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever done, ever,” she exclaimed after landing on a beach. “That is incredible. Top 10 experience of my life. Just amazing.”

It was only when they joined Boy George and Scarlette that they finally realised that being VIPs wasn’t as good as it sounded, unsurprisingly – and that they were actually ‘Very Isolated People’ marooned on an island.

The four stars were due to take part in the very first Bushtucker trial, which is set to air tonight. It is not known whether Olivia’s medical issues occurred after the trial.
