Ok, so it was no big secret that TOWIE‘s Gemma Collins was struggling just a teeny, tiny bit in I’m A Celebrity, but we DEFINITELY did not see the bombshell that she would QUIT after just three days coming.
Yup, after three days of porridge and absolutely no bushtucker trials, Gemma has taken the decision to bow out of the camp.
We’ll miss you and your dramatics babes!
A spokesperson from ITV confirmed this morning that 33-year-old GC would no longer be fighting off ants and spiders by the campfire.
They said: “We’re sorry to see Gemma go but respect her decision and wish her well.”
Well that’s a sensational quit if we ever did see one!
Throughout her epic journey of just, erm, three days, we saw GC cry, moan and scream her way through the trials and tribulations of jungle life, from bawling her eyes out when the helicopter lifted two feet off the ground, to fearing malaria because of her fluorescent yellow poo and having delirious dreamings about food.
Oh, and creating that weird porridge omelete that everyone weirdly seemed to enjoy?!
GC already threatened to quit on her dramatic descent into the Celebrity Slammer – the jungle jail that the celebrities were voted into by the public before the show had even begun!
During her slippy, dark walk into the jail’s walls, Gemma threatened to quit if she hadn’t found her other campmates in three minutes.
She didn’t, and continued to battle her way through the trials and tribulations of a luxury-free jungle life until she seemingly could take no more.
She’s the first campmate to officially leave the jungle, although if the rumours are anything to go by, it won’t be long before the jungle celebs have some new friends to play with.
News of Gemma quitting comes just ONE DAY after her TOWIE co-star Ferne McCann told Good Morning Britain: “I can’t believe she’s cracked this soon – but she’s definitely not a quitter.” Oh.
GOD WE LOVE THIS SHOW.
We’ll miss you Gemma and all your crazy, dramatic ways. Plus, it’s a shame we never got to see you reach your Bear Grylls-esque goals. Sadface.
