Why Jamie-Lynn Spears really quit Im A Celebrity after threatening to leave

Jamie Lynn Spears, the younger sister of pop icon Britney Spears, has decided to leave I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! making her the second star to exit this season.

A spokesperson for the show said: "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."

Jamie Lynn had a tough time in the camp, often missing home and even shedding tears over a piece of chocolate.

On Tuesday evening, after the camp won some chocolate, Josie Gibson decided to keep her treat, saying: "I'm going to have chocolate rice."

Tony Bellew joked in the Bush Telegraph: "Save it? My backside hasn't been this thin for a long while!"

Meanwhile, Jamie Lynn was feeling down and took some time away from camp as she admitted she was "so miserable". When she returned, Tony asked: "OK, mate?" and Jamie Lynn responded: "I'm fine… I'm just… no, I'm not…That little square of chocolate p*****d me off."

Danielle Harold suggested: "It's because it gives you a taste of what's outside…"

Just 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."

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."

During the show last week, Jamie Lynn was chosen for the next Bushtucker Trial amid worries she might leave the show because she missed her two young children in the States.

Earlier in the episode, she told campmates Sam Thompson and former EastEnders actress Danielle Harold about feeling emotionally weak.

Danielle tried to cheer her up, saying: "You're so strong. This is tough babe, tough. So tough. It's not easy." Jamie Lynn was visibly upset, replying to Danielle's words with: "Why am I crying so much? Josie [Gibson] has a baby at home…"

Sam, a former Made In Chelsea star, tried to comfort her, saying: "It's important to remember you've come from a whole different continent, you don't know anyone here, it's hard. It's real hard."

Danielle added: "Look at the s*** you've been through in your life, right? This, a little bit of rain in the jungle, nothing." Jamie Lynn responded: "But at least all that s*** I could go home to my babies every night, you know? That's it, that's all I need in life. It feels a little bit overwhelming. They're not even close. I've got to just do it. I don't know why I'm being such a baby."
