Ant and Dec address Olivia Attwood's I'm A Celebrity exit

Ant and Dec have addressed Olivia Attwood’s premature I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! exit, describing it as ‘very sad’.

The Love Island star was forced to withdraw from this year’s ITV series on medical grounds just 24 hours into her jungle experience.

Kicking off Monday night’s programme, Dec explained that Olivia will appear in this evening’s episode due to scenes being filmed before her shock departure.

Ant added: ‘We’re very sad to see her go but we wish her well.’

It was revealed earlier in the day that Olivia bowed out of the programme.

A spokesman for the broadcaster said: ‘As a precautionary measure Olivia needed to leave the jungle to undergo some medical checks.

‘Unfortunately, the medical team has advised it is not safe for Olivia to return to camp as there needs to be a further investigation.

‘She has been absolutely brilliant and she’ll be very much missed on the show.’

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on Tuesday night at 9pm on ITV.
