Following Stanley Johnson's shock departure from the jungle yesterday (December 7), it was time for the public to cut short yet another campmate's I'm a Celebrity experience tonight.

And just missing out on the closing days of this year's series is Dennis Wise, the sixth contestant to bid farewell to camp. Commiserations, Dennis!

So, your final five for I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! 2017 are officially Amir Khan, Georgia Toffolo, Iain Lee, Jamie Lomas and Jennie McAlpine.

Dennis is the latest celebrity to leave the show amid accusations of bullying DJ Iain Lee – compounded by a recent showdown between the two over 'game-playing'.

After watching a clip back of Iain confessing he felt he'd "let Dennis down", Ant and Dec asked the former footballer in his exit interview how he felt knowing that.

Justifying his comments made during yesterday's show, Dennis said: "He'd said it twice, 'Get Me Out of Here'...

"When they come back and they say 'Oh, I couldn't do it' and they do it twice... everyone was kind of thinking, 'Well, we need to eat'."

Dennis also revealed why he allowed Iain to take part in the latest Bushtucker Trial, telling Ant and Dec that he realised people 'wanted to promote themselves'.

"When it came to yesterday – and I listened to Iain's letter and I listened to Jamie's – I realised then 'Iain, go and do that trial tomorrow', because you need to get the air time...

"There's nothing wrong with that," he added.

Something's telling us that this is one controversy that's not going to go away anytime soon.

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! continues tomorrow (December 8) at 9pm on ITV, with Extra Camp following right after on ITV2.
