Boxer floored by Celebrity viewers

Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts and soap star Charlie Brooks are the last two contestants standing in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! after heavyweight David Haye was knocked out by the public.
The boxer survived 21 days in the jungle before being voted out in the penultimate episode.
On hearing the news that he was leaving the camp, he kissed and hugged the two finalists and said: "I told ya! Girl power. Good luck girls."
Chatting to presenters Ant and Dec afterwards, the boxer - known as the Bermondsey bruiser - refused to say who he wanted to see crowned Queen of the Jungle.
"I want them both to win," he said. "I want it to be either of them. In my eyes they are both winners."
David had made it to the last three in the ITV1 show thanks to a combination of impressive results in tasks and some eye-catching showers in the buff.
Yet the British boxer revealed that he had found the camp challenging. "It was a lot more mentally tough than I thought," he said.
"Physically I am okay with things, doing trials and stuff. That is okay. It was just being out of your comfort zone, having cameras on you the whole time. Being around people I didn't know.
"It was the lack of food, feeling hungry constantly. You feel yourself getting smaller and smaller, skinnier and skinnier.
"But that is part of the game and part of the show. I knew what I was getting in for when I signed up."
