Scarlette Douglas has broken her silence following her exit from I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! The Channel 4 presenter, who was the second famous face to be eliminated from the jungle, took to Instagram to explain how she was feeling after waving goodbye to camp.

"Hey everybody, I am officially out of the jungle, I'm gutted!" she said on her Instagram Stories, adding: "But it's been so nice coming out seeing my brother, my sister-in-law, and my little nephew.

"It's been a bit of a whirlwind since I've been out but thank you to everybody who voted for me, I had the best time.

"We'll see what happens next but I hope you enjoyed me on there and I hope you enjoyed me teaching Matt Hancock some dance moves because that was interesting but send me a message and send me your highlights because I would love to know."

Needless to say, fans were shocked when Ant and Dec announced Scarlette's name towards the end of Sunday's show and were "gutted" about the A Place in the Sun presenter not making it further in the competition.

One person wrote: "Honestly in shock. How could Scarlette be voted off before Boy George and Sue? #ImACeleb." A second said: "Well that was a SHOCK! How the hell are people preferring Boy George to Scarlette? He's awful and she is amazing! I don't get it I'm Gutted! #ImACeleb @imacelebrity."

A third was equally perplexed, tweeting: "I'M IN SHOCK?? SCARLETTE??? WHAT ABOUT BOY GEORGE I HATE THE BRITISH PUBLIC #imaceleb." 

Elsewhere in Sunday's show, it was an emotional evening for the campmates after receiving letters from their loved ones at home.

The campmates became emotional as they read their letters from home 

Zara Tindall wrote in to send her husband Mike love from her and the children. The letter read: "Hi my love, we are missing you so much and really needing some papa hugs, but glad you're sharing them with your campmates.

"The girls are enjoying sports and throwing themselves into everything at the moment and the little man is loving life, smashing it up, learning some new words. Z, M, L and L. x."
