Katie Price has enough and walks out of the I’m A Celeb jungle
After being nominated for her seventh bush tucker trial in a row, the glamour model said enough is enough and walked from the jungle. The mother-of-three’s £350,000 fee for appearing on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here may well be in jeopardy after her decision to leave the show less than a week after joining.
The 31-year-old wasted no time in getting back in touch with the outside world. From her luxury 5 star hotel room Katie posted a message on her Twitter blog which read: “Hey thank you for all your support!! I tried my best xxxxxxxxxxx”
Despite threatening to leave the jungle on several occasions previously, Katie finally left at 3 am UK time after a lengthy discussion with show producers using the Bush Telegraph. The message on the official I’m A Celeb site simply read, “Katie Price has left the jungle.” It is expected that Katie will return to the show tonight to explain her decision for leaving during an interview with Ant and Dec.
On last night’s show when the Geordie presenters announced that Katie and boxer Joe Bugner had been chosen by the public to face the next trial named the Bad Pitt, the model was defiant in her refusal to take part saying, “No way. I swore on my kids’ lives I’m not doing any more.” When asked for her take on why the public kept nominating her for the gruesome trails she replied, “Either they love me or they hate me. No idea.”
Katie returned to the jungle 5 years after her first appearance where she met Peter Andre who she later married. The couple divorced this year and Katie revealed that she hoped to gain closure on her broken marriage by returning to the place where it all began.
