I'm a Celeb contestant has left show to defend himself over allegations

He's thought to have used inappropriate language...

YouTuber Jack Maynard has left I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! due to circumstances outside the camp.

The show is only two days old, but the vlogger has left the show to defend himself against accusations levelled against him.

His exit is due to a series of tweets which were published in The Sun while he was in Australia which allegedly show him using inappropriate and abusive language in tweets from up to six years ago.

Maynard's publicists decided that he should be removed from the show so that he can defend himself against the allegations as he had not been able to respond to the press from within the jungle.

He appeared in Tuesday night's show but presenters Ant and Dec confirmed Maynard's removal halfway through the show and warned viewers not to vote for him in Wednesday's bushtucker trial.

A statement from his publicist said: "In the last few days Jack Maynard has been the subject of a succession of media stories which, given his position as a contestant on I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! - filmed in the Australian jungle, with no contact with the outside world, he has been unable to respond to.

"Since it is only fair that everyone should be aware of any allegations made against them and should also have the right to defend themselves, it was agreed that it would be better to bring him out of the show.

"Jack agrees with this decision which was made by his representatives and ITV and thanks everyone who has supported him in the show this far."
