Larry Lamb was left in tears as Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo was sent home from the jungle.

Diversity star Jordan Banjo became the fourth celebrity to leave I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! on Tuesday night (29Nov16).

The 23-year-old dancer followed Danny Baker, Lisa Snowdon and Ola Jordan out of the jungle camp, but admitted he was looking forward to having a long, hot shower in the luxurious Palazzo Versace Hotel following his exit.

As Jordan bid farewell to his campmates and walked the drawbridge to freedom, hosts Ant and Dec showed viewers footage of much-loved actor Larry Lamb shedding a few tears.

And Jordan told the Geordie duo that former EastEnders actor Larry was "like a dad" to him in the camp.

"The whole experience has been so overwhelming. It's something I never thought I'd have the chance to do," Jordan said. "I know a lot of people say it, but those guys in there - everyone is such a lovely and beautiful person.

"I don't think I've ever seen a camp (getting on) like it, it's like a home away from home."

As with many celebrities who sign up to take part in the ITV competition, Jordan had to face one of his biggest fears - namely snakes - in one of the Bushtucker Trials. But Jordan admits that coming face to face with the slithering creatures hasn't helped him conquer his phobia.

"For me it's all reaffirmed how scared I actually am! Now I've come face to face with one I know I can't deal with it," he laughed.

Now he's out of the jungle, Jordan is backing ex footballer Wayne Bridge to win. He added that he is looking forward to catching up with friends and family, who he missed greatly during his time in the jungle.

"I'm so lucky that I live in such a bubble, every single day is Diversity, mum management," Jordan smiled. "I've never experienced anything else. My brother and my dad had to convince me I could do it, so getting in there and having the camp like that was a blessing."

Eight celebrities remain to battle it out to be named either King or Queen of the jungle - Wayne, Carol Vorderman, Scarlett Moffatt, Sam Quek, Joel Dommett, Larry Lamb, Martin Roberts and Adam Thomas.
