Unfortunately, Olivia Attwood, who made history as the first person from Love Island to go in the jungle, has been forced to quit the jungle after just 24 hours.

A show spokesman 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 further investigation. She has been absolutely brilliant and she'll be very much missed on the show.”

The reality TV star told RadioTimes.com last year that she would "love to do" I'm a Celebrity and now that she's had the call up, Attwood is hoping to prove that she isn't as "high maintenance" as people might think.

"One of the things that will be nice will be to show a different side to me," she said before entering the camp. "I think people think I am high maintenance and I will struggle without make-up and nails but I am not that bothered and I think that might surprise people. I am happy to muck in."

Here's everything you need to know about Olivia Attwood following her I'm a Celebrity appearance.

"It’s the crème de la crème of all shows and obviously I didn’t have to think about it. I said yes immediately!"

She said that she's hoping to "show a different side" to herself and that she's looking forward to having a "digital detox".

"I do o a lot of social media and I spend a crazy amount of time on my phone. My phone causes me stress. We are all prisoners to our phones and so it will be so nice to have this time in life where you are digitally disconnected for three weeks," she said. "It’s going to be great to be completely immersed in the jungle environment and I am excited to see what I can do."
