BBC Radio 1 DJ Adele Roberts has become the first celebrity to be eliminated from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! 2019.

Adele landed in the bottom two alongside Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle but found herself getting the boot from camp after receiving the fewest public votes.

Following her exit, Adele told hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly that she was “amazed” she stuck it out in the jungle for almost two weeks.

“I am glad that I lasted without saying ‘Im A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’, I felt like I was going to say it many times,” she added.

Revealing she didn’t mind being the first campmate to leave, Adele said, “I feel like at least I'm first at something, I'll take it, it's fine.

“I went in the jungle to challenge myself and not be scared of things. I thought: ‘Give it a go and see what happens.’

“Without a doubt, I'm stronger than I realised and there's so many things I can do it's just the way that you view things.”

Former footballer and Match of the Day pundit Ian Wright is heading into the jungle. Ian Wright is rumoured to be earning the second-highest wage of £400,000 while in the jungle. But during an appearance at the Royal Concert hall in Nottingham last week, Harry Redknapp, last year's King of the Jungle, revealed Wright would be earning one million as someone tweeted: "Just got home from seeing @Redknapp in Nottingham. Interestingly, he let slip that Ian Wright has been paid £1m to appear on this year's #ImaCeleb."

Adele’s elimination didn’t come without controversy though, as an error with the voting app meant that only phone votes counted towards the result.

Ant and Dec explained that app votes had to be discounted due to “a wording error” but fans were left furious with the blunder and took to social media to complain.

“Not happy there is no way Adele would have gone if the app was correct. There should have been another vote,” tweeted one viewer.

Another fumed, “Well nobody should go!!! I’m sure most votes are from the app!!!! So unfair of Adele to be leaving!!!!!”
