Nancy Sorrell became the first celebrity to be booted out of I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!, leaving her husband in the jungle without her.
The lingerie model and former lap dancer was hugged and kissed by husband Vic Reeves – who last week became a surprise addition to the show – when hosts Ant and Dec announced the result of the public vote last night.
Earlier Natalie Appleton quit I’m A Celebrity… after viewers picked her for a record fifth Bushtucker Trial.
The whingeing former All Saint – who follows former East 17 frontman and early walker Brian Harvey – threw in the towel complaining she was “tired, weak and bored”.
As she left the camp, Sorrell told hosts Ant and Dec: “People may have wanted to split us up a bit.”
Speaking about her husband Reeves, real name Jim Moir, she added: “When Jim came it helped me a lot. Maybe people were a little bit jealous. I don’t know. I don’t care.”
When the Essex ladette was asked if she and her husband had made love in the camp, she said: “We just cuddled. We were not going to have a bit of how’s your father. No way it was going to happen.”
Asked how her husband would cope without her she said: “Not very well. He said he wouldn’t cope very well without me.”
“Maybe he will come out tomorrow,” she added cryptically.
Bookies Ladbrokes have made Sheila Ferguson – one third of the hit group The Three Degrees – evens to be the next person voted off the show with Reeves second favourite with odds of 2/1.
Comic Joe Pasquale is the 4/7 favourite to be crown king of the jungle.
After leaving the camp Appleton was asked by Ant and Dec how she felt about staying in a five-star hotel after days on meagre rations.
She replied: “It was very surreal. I appreciate everything.
“I ordered room service and saved half my sandwich and put it in the fridge.”
Speaking generally about life in the camp, she said: “I didn’t have it in me. My body was spent. My muscles were spent.”
Because Appleton left before doing her Bushtucker Trial, runner-up Ferguson was forced to step in.
The trial involved her slithering on her stomach through mud and slime, while managing to grab six stars from a rat-covered grid above her head.
