Voted off Sheryl stands by Gillian

Sheryl Gascoigne stood by Gillian McKeith after being voted out of I'm A Celebrity

Sheryl Gascoigne stood by fellow contestant Gillian McKeith and admitted she was "delighted" to be out of the jungle after she became the first to be voted off I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!

McKeith was much-criticised after she refused challenges and collapsed live on TV, prompting fellow contestants to accuse her of faking it to avoid tasks.

But the ex-wife of footballer Paul Gascoigne came to her defence this morning saying: "I had no reason not to believe her."

She told ITV's Daybreak: "Everybody's been asking me all day since I got out, 'did you believe her?' and I absolutely did, I had no reason not to.

"She was, from day one, she was just freaking at the fact that somebody had put bugs on top of her and she was like 'why would they do that?'"

And she said the nutritionist, who claimed she had never seen the reality TV show, even asked if they would be staying in a hotel.

"She was so convincing that I believed her," she added.

"Every day after that, when she had trials, she was just petrified, she was shaking with fear in the morning so I had no reason not to believe her."

Sheryl's eviction meant Gillian, Stacey Solomon, Dom Joly and Shaun Ryder - who also featured in the public vote - were saved.

She spent last night was spent with the family. "The first thing I wanted to do was grab my gorgeous children," she said.

In the past, you followed conventional wisdom, only to regret your choice. Don't make this mistake now, when there is an important career matter before you. Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
