I’m a Celebrity viewers were stunned on Wednesday (December 5) by the results of the latest eviction.
With only the bigger characters left remaining in camp, Dec Donnelly and Holly Willoughby sent shockwaves through the jungle by revealing that Anne Hegerty had been voted off by the public.
This was after Anne had fallen into the bottom two against John Barrowman, and subsequently finished with the lowest total of viewer votes. Anne shouted “yes!” with joy when Dec and Holly shared the news, adding: “Isn’t that brilliant?!”
“People kept on not voting me off! What was that about?” she incredulously asked Dec and Holly in the studio.
In fact, Anne revealed she almost quit weeks ago: “I thought I’d be all sort of strong, and I’d overcome my fears, and I was like, nope, nope, nope. Not critters. Any invertebrate that wiggles no, no, no. I’m so out of here. Okay, I’ve had mealworms in my bra, not ever doing that again! Thank you. It was awful at the beginning. It was funny doing the swim across the lake, and then we were just walking and walking, going further down.
“I was like, we’re walking down into hell. Then we got to Snake Rock, and I just sort of couldn’t process it. It was like the reality sort of hit me, and I was like, ‘What have I done? I can’t remotely do this? What was I thinking?’ I went into the BT the next morning and said, ‘I quit!’ They said, ‘Okay, give it a few hours. Let’s have a conversation about this’.”
