"Unfortunately, the medical team has advised it is not safe for Olivia to return to camp as there needs to be a further investigation. She has been absolutely brilliant and she'll be very much missed on the show." HELLO! has reached out to ITV for more information.

Olivia has left the show

The star has yet to break her silence on the exit, but she did open up about what joining the show meant to her ahead of going into the jungle. She said: "I am not a terribly emotional person but I do think this show is unique. You have got no contact with friends and family, you are going to be hungry and you are going to be tested with fears and phobias. If there was one show that will make you emotional, then it is this one!"

We hope she makes a swift recovery

She continued: "I’m A Celebrity is such an iconic programme and this year has been incredible. I am going straight into filming a new documentary when I finish and so there won’t be much rest for me on the other side but it’s so exciting. Getting the call to be part of this programme blew my mind." We will miss her in the jungle!
