Ant and Dec were both "very sad" to see Olivia Attwood leave 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!'.

The 31-year-old TV star quit the ITV show after just 24 hours, and the hosts addressed her dramatic departure at the start of the episode on Monday night (07.11.22).

Dec said: "Unfortunately, Olivia Attwood has left the jungle for medical reasons and sadly won't be returning."

Ant added: "Now, she does feature in tonight's show, which was filmed before she had to leave. We’re very sad to see her go and we wish her well."

Olivia has confessed to being heartbroken about her early exit.

However, the former 'Love Island' star has also insisted that the situation was "beyond [her] control".

A spokesperson said on her Instagram Story: "To say Olivia is heartbroken would be an understatement. She dreamed of doing 'I’m A Celebrity' for years, and was absolutely loving every second of the show and throwing herself into jungle life feet first (just as we knew she would).

"However, for reasons beyond her control, her journey has been cut short."

Olivia - who took part in the first trial as a VIP - is said to be particularly frustrated by the suggestion that it "was her decision to leave".

A source told MailOnline: "She's so upset. She is absolutely devastated.

"She felt so honoured and privileged to have been the first 'Love Island' star to be given the opportunity to go into the 'I'm A Celeb' jungle.

"The worst part is that she absolutely did not quit the show and hates anyone thinking it was her decision to leave."

It's also expected that the circumstances surrounding her exit will be revealed at a later date.

The insider added: "She wanted to take part still, but she had to leave for reasons beyond her control, which will be explained at a later time."
