Jamie Lynn Spears has left I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The actress, singer and sister of pop icon Britney Spears has officially quit the show, as announced by ITV, who shared on the official I'm A Celeb Twitter account: "Jamie Lynn Spears has left I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! on medical grounds. She's been a fantastic campmate who has triumphed at trials and bonded well with her fellow celebrities."

Spears struggled throughout the show, often crying due to missing her children. Last night's episode on Tuesday 28th November, saw her appearing to phone home on the old fashioned British telephone box at camp.

The actress and former Dancing With The Stars contestant also took herself away from her campmates to cry. However, during her stay, Spears did complete a trial in last week's episode, which saw her win 10 stars for the group.

The 32-year-old star's last appearance on the show will be on Wednesday night's episode.

The news comes after the departure of Grace Dent, who also left the show on medical grounds.

The food critic's departure was confirmed on Saturday's, with a letter in which she told her camp mates that her "heart is broken".

Dent had been due to face the bushtucker trial, Down The Tubes, on Monday night's instalment, with EastEnders star Danielle Harold taking her place instead.
