Larry Lamb was unable to mask his emotions as Jordan Banjo became the fourth person to leave the I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! jungle in Wednesday night’s episode.
The former EastEnders actor was visibly upset at his good pal’s elimination and he openly cried as he mourned the camp’s loss.
The 69-year-old was comforted by his fellow campers, including sparring partner Martin Roberts, and admitted that Jordan’s departure hit him really hard.
He said: “That was a bit of a wallop, he is one of the most extraordinary human beings I’ve ever, ever met in my life.
“I just love him, he’s like another boy of mine, I’m so shocked, I just assumed he would be here and saying goodbye to me.”
Weeping Larry hugged Wayne Bridge as they watched Jordan leave over the bridge, and pretty much everybody else in the camp was shaken by his strong reaction, with most of the other male celebrities also shedding a tear.
But it was the viewers of the reality TV show at home that were the most rocked by his upset.
Fans took to Twitter to confess that his tears had made them cry, too.
