Amir Khan has been voted off 'I'm A Celebrity...South Africa'.

The 36-year-old sports star has become the third celebrity to leave the ITV show, after being voted off in a secret ballot.

Before announcing the latest departure, Dec told the campmates: "You all know why we’re here this morning - last night we left you with the news that someone would be leaving camp as a result of a secret ballot..."

Amir was then announced as the latest celebrity to leave the camp.

The former boxer - who retired from the sport in 2022 - insisted appearing on the show has been one of the "best experiences" of his life.

However, Amir also admitted that he felt ready to leave the camp and return home to his family.

He said: "It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. It’s like I got to be with a new family in South Africa.

"I’m always going to compare it with my first time in Australia but this one, for me, was way better. Great camp, the campmates were amazing.

"Even though I would have loved to have stayed in a little bit longer, sometimes what can happen is, if you stay longer, you can outstay your welcome.

"It was just a great experience and I’m just glad I had the opportunity."

Meanwhile, some of the campmates have confessed to feeling uneasy about the secret ballot.

Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo said: "I'm not happy about my decision. I just felt I had to vote for someone."

Myleene Klass admitted to having doubts about her choice.

She said: "I'm now thinking, did I do the right thing?"

Jordan Banjo, on the other hand, was more philosophical about the situation.

He explained: "At the end of the day there's only going to be one winner."

'I'm A Celebrity...South Africa' continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
