Rock jumps for joy at jungle exit

Crissy Rock has been voted out of the I'm A Celebrity jungle

Crissy Rock jumped for joy as she was booted out of the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! jungle.

The 53-year-old actress was ejected from the reality contest after polling the fewest public votes.

She said she had "the best laugh of my life" during her 19-day spell in the Australian jungle.

When presenters Ant and Dec told her the news, she jumped in the air and told horse racing champ Willie Carson: "I am going home Willie. I am going to have a bacon and egg for you."

The scouser, who played brassy hotel manager Janey York in ITV comedy Benidorm, shouted "freedom" as she ran away from the camp.

She admitted that she was sad that her dreams of becoming queen of the jungle had been dashed, adding: "I have had a lovely time, the pinnacle was Peter Andre."

Peter made a guest appearance in the camp on Tuesday, much to the delight of Crissy and Fatima Whitbread.

"I have had the best laugh of my life," she said. "And it is sad that it is over but it was not meant to be."

She said she wanted Willie or Fatima to win the reality show.

Referring to Willie, she said: "He has been an absolute sport. He is brilliant. From day one he has wanted to go home and he is still in the running. It is either Willie or Fatima I would want to win."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
