Jordan Banjo joins jungle exodus as he hails former campmates

Dancer Jordan Banjo described his experience on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! as “overwhelming” as he became the fourth celebrity to leave the show.

The 23-year-old was eliminated from the ITV programme after a public vote following the departures of Ola Jordan, Lisa Snowdon and DJ Danny Baker.

Jordan – who is a member of dance troupe Diversity – was greeted by his younger sister after crossing the rope bridge.

He told presenters Ant and Dec: “Having a camp like we did was such a blessing.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a camp like it. A home away from home. Every day I’m with a team.”

“The whole experience was so overwhelming. It’s just something I never thought I’d have the chance to do.”

Jordan threw his support behind ex-England footballer Wayne Bridge to win as his former camp mates were shown in tears on a screen behind him.

Earlier Jordan had been seen working with actor Larry Lamb to win all nine stars in a Bushtucker Trial.

Following his elimination from the show he described 69-year-old Larry as “like a dad”.
