    Mother of two Jamie Lynn's exit follows Grace Dent's departure from the camp only a couple of days earlier, as the food critic also left the show "for medical reasons". A spokesperson for ITV said on Grace's exit confirmed that she had left the show. The spokesperson added: "Unfortunately Grace Dent has left the show on medical grounds. She has been a great campmate and will be missed by her fellow celebrities and viewers alike."

    It comes after Jamie threatened to leave the I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! after another difficult week in the Australian jungle. During Tuesday’s visit to the famous ITV camp, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly welcomed viewers back for another jam-packed episode. The episode saw campmates check into the Misery Motel where they were forced to face their fears in a grisly hotel filled with creepy crawlies.

    First up to the challenge was new camp leader Sam Thompson, Marvin Humes and Tony Bellew who managed to successfully earn five stars from the gruelling challenge. Later on in the show Nella Rose and Frankie Dettori, however they were unable to correctly retrieve a single star in the trial.

    After winning the challenge, the camp was allowed to take back three treats which included a chef’s apron, stock cubes and a single bar of chocolate. While the majority of the camp celebrated the delicious treat, Jamie Lynn was left emotional.

    Later on in the show, the Zoey 101 actress was seen crying behind a tree on the outskirts of the camp on her own before she composed herself and returned to her hammock. But the doting mum was determined to reach out to her family after she shared a cuddle with her friend Danielle Harrold.

    The star stormed over to the telephone box and desperately typed in the international number which failed to ring out. It was at this point that the star confessed: “I hate it here so much, I hate it here so much, I hate it here so much. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it here.

    "This place is where people go to have the worst days of their lives. Dear God please help me to make it. I think I've got to leave, I think I've got to leave."

    As she left the phone box she told her campmates: "Here's just a friendly reminder of how much it sucks here. This place is so awful, you couldn't be in a worse place."

    As she stormed back to her hammock, her co-star Danielle Harold rushed to support her once more as she quietly wept. Later on in the show after the singer had picked herself up a bit, Sam and Tony attempted to make her feel better with a comforting chat.

    But the pair struggled to strike the right tone when they accused the star of "crying wolf" when she misses home inside the camp. It was immediately evident that the American beauty didn't take kindly to their comments as she insisted, "I'm not crying wolf, I mean it every single time I say I want to leave." It was at this point that Sam reassured her: "Don't worry, you'll be in here longer than we will at this rate."
