Food critic Grace Dent quits I'm A Celebrity

A show spokesperson said on Dent's departure from the jungle: 'Unfortunately Grace Dent has left the show on medical grounds.'

Food critic Grace Dent has left ITV show I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! on medical grounds.

A show spokesperson said: “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.”

ITV has not given any specifics as to the medical reasons for Dent’s departure.

The food critic was attended to by a medic in a recent episode of I’m A Celeb as a cockroach crawled into her ear during a bushtucker trial.

“That’s not nice, I can hear it,” Dent said as a medic sprayed water into her ear to get the critter out.

Before entering the jungle, Dent said it was the camp diet she was least looking forward to.

“Everything is filling me with a real sense of dread,” she said.

“But I am especially dreading being really hungry because I tend to eat four or five posh meals out a week because I am a restaurant critic.

“I know they are going to give me an eating trial and I am dreading putting even worse things in my mouth than I have in the past in fancy restaurants.

“I think I will be writing very stiff columns about the jungle food when I come out!”

The show first aired on 19 November and Dent was in the first group of ten campmates to enter the Australian jungle.
