ITV I’m A Celeb’s Jamie Lynn Spears ‘to be paid in full’ after quitting show on medical grounds

Jamie Lynn Spears, sister of pop icon Britney Spears, has left the popular ITV show I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

Despite her early exit, she will still receive her full payment from ITV.

The news of Jamie Lynn's departure was announced on Wednesday. She had a tough week in the Australian jungle, missing her daughters Maddie, 15, and Ivey, 5.

Reports suggest that she was the second-highest-paid star on the show, with a rumoured fee of £250,000.

An ITV spokesperson confirmed: "Jamie Lynn Spears has left I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! on medical grounds. She's been a fantastic campmate who has triumphed at trials and bonded well with her fellow celebrities."

On Wednesday night's episode, her fellow campmates were been informed that she won't be returning to the camp. Jamie Lynn is the second celebrity to quit this season.

Before Jamie's departure, she had hinted at wanting to leave.

On Tuesday night's episode, she got really upset when Sam Thompson compared her to the boy who cried wolf.

Jamie told Sam: "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," she added. Last night, telly fans saw Jamie Lynn break down over a piece of chocolate.

The camp didn't win their luxury items but did get a bar of chocolate which they shared. Fred Sirieix gave them all their bit of chocolate in his apron.

Her choice to leave the show has caused a big mess for the ITV programme as another campmate has also threatened to quit many times.

Social media star Nella Rose did not take part in the Bushtucker Trial last night after being rushed to see the medics.

Nella, 26, had earlier claimed she wouldn't be the first to leave the show.

Now that two contestants have already left, she could potentially be the third.

Fans have taken to social media platform X, previously known as Twitter, to share their thoughts on Nella. One fan posted: "Nella Rose will quit #I'mACeleb. I'm calling it."

Another chimed in: "No way Nella is doing that trial, she'll defo say I'm A Celeb and quit." Others also predicted: "Nella going to quit #ImACeleb." "Nella does not look impressed…I still think she's going to quit #ImaCeleb," tweeted another.

Just a few days before Jamie Lynn's dramatic exit, food critic Grace Dent left the camp and flew back to the UK, confessing that she "just wanted to go home."

Grace, 50, seemed a shadow of her usual self and looked pale during Sunday's episode.

However, on Monday, ITV announced: "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."

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues every night at 9pm on ITV
