Happy: Anne Hegerty leaving the jungle: ITV

Anne Hegerty mocked Nick Knowles after she was voted out of I'm A Celebrity.

Hegerty, aka The Governess, poked fun at Knowles' belief that the 1969 moon landing was fake.

Speaking about her relationship with the DIY SOS presenter she said: "I'm a sad person with no life. My life is sitting indoors reading at a computer and not experiencing things. I'm like the anti-Nick.He goes out but he still reads books."

Declan Donnelly said: "But he doesn't believe any of it."

Hegerty quipped: "I may still need to convince him we did go to the moon - but he believes in evolution."

But despite the jibe she tipped Knowles for the jungle crown.

Hegerty was ecstatic to be voted out after finding herself in the bottom two with John Barrowman.

She revealed she begged to leave the show less than 48 hours after the reality of life in the jungle hit home.

"It was awful at the beginning," she said. "I couldn't process it. The reality suddenly hit me and I thought 'I can't remotely do this'. I went into the [Bush Telegraph] in the morning and said 'I quit'."

She called viewers "lunatics" for keeping her in so long but said she was happy to have had the experience and to meet her fellow campmates.

"There's not an awful lot of female quizzers and most of them are men," she said. "But everyone was just so lovely. When Rita [Simons] went I thought 'no, not Rita'. She was way younger than me but she was like my mum."

She said she will miss them "terribly" but that they have already pledged to set up a Whatsapp group.

I'm A Celebrity is on ITV, tomorrow at 9pm

    Haftar promises to protect Libya from "Turkish invaders"

    Libya’s eastern military commander Khalifa Haftar has promised to fight Turkish forces if UN-led peace talks in Geneva break down.“We cannot sit idly by,” said Haftar, according to comments to a Russian news agency carried by Sputnik News. "The armed forces will fulfill their national and constitutional duty to protect citizens, the country’s sovereignty and borders from Turkish invaders,” added Haftar.Haftar accused Libya's Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj of using the ceasefire to transfer Syrian mercenaries, Turkish soldiers, terrorists and weapons to Tripoli. Haftar also said he supported European Union plans to use a naval mission to enforce a UN arms embargo.Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan confirmed on Friday that Syrian fighters are operating in Libya alongside a Turkish training force, according to reports from the AFP news agency. “There are also people from the Syrian National Army,” said Erdogan, referring to fighters formerly known as the Free Syrian Army.Erdogan levelled fresh accusations at Russia, saying some 2,500 mercenaries had been sent to Libya by Moscow. He said some “15,000 terrorists” were supporting Haftar.Turkey, as well as Qatar, backs the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli, which opposes Haftar who is supported by Russia, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.'More hope' in UN talksUN envoy Ghassan Salame on Thursday kicked off military negotiations between the GNA and Haftar loyalists. The GNA had shunned a second round of indirect talks following a rocket attack on a port in Tripoli. However, GNA representatives returned to negotiations following a short break, Salame told the AFP news agency.Salame optimistically described both sides in discussions as returning for fresh talks with “even more energy towards finding a deal,” referring to a military settlement as “essential”.Libya has been in conflict since the toppling of longtime leader Moamer Kadhafi in 2011, sparking fighting between armed factions vying for control of the oil-rich country.Haftar launched an offensive on Tripoli last April and made a number of quick advances, but his fighters stalled on the edge of the city. The first round of military discussions ended with no outcome earlier this month, although Salame has said there is “more hope” in these latest negotiations.
