Aaand he’s gone! Spencer Matthews QUITS I’m A Celeb after three days

Well, that was fast.

The I'm A Celebrity camp is already one member down this evening with the news that Spencer Matthews has quit the show.

Spencer, who's no doubt used to a higher standard of living on Made In Chelsea, is believed to have exited the show this morning after just three days on set.

The MIC partyboy arrived Down Under on Tuesday, entering the competition as a late contestant alongside Vicky Pattison and Ferne McCann.

However ITV confirmed this evening that he was a gonner, citing "medical reasons" for his decision to quit. 

So soon was his departure from the show that Spencer had yet to even enter the main camp, as he was "banished" to Snake Rock shortly after his arrival.

Having completed his first Bushtucker Trial just yesterday – which involved sticking his head into a perspex box full of bugs – it seems the jungle life got the better of Spencer.

Before entering the house, the 29-year-old swore he wouldn't be quitting the show prematurely and wanted to see it out until the end.

"I’d like to be a finalist. I’d like to be there for the duration," he told The Mirror this week.  "That’s my main aim… I’d like to be one of the last people standing."

Of course, Spence isn't the only reality star to bow out of I'm A Celebrity after just a few days. Last year, TOWIE's Gemma Collins quit three days in, having spent most of her time in the jungle in floods of tears.

Gemma’s brief time in the Celebrity Jungle was characterised by ongoing – and usually totally irrational – fears relating to just about everything from helicopters to malaria.
