TV Presenter & Model, Olivia Attwood, ‘heartbroken’ to be leaving I’m A Celebrity on medical grounds

Olivia Attwood is an English television personality, presenter, and model. In 2017, she appeared on the third series of Love Island and later became a regular cast member on the ITVBe reality series The Only Way Is Essex. In November 2022, she starred in Series 22 of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! but withdrew on medical grounds shortly after arriving.

OLIVIA ATWOOD has already returned to the UK following her shock exit from I’m A Celebrity.

The 31-year-old star, who rose to fame on Love Island in 2017, was one of the frontrunners for this year’s series of I’m A Celebrity, which has returned to Australia after being relocated to the United Kingdom due to the pandemic. During the premiere episode on Sunday night, Attwood skydived out of a helicopter with radio host Chris Moyles. ITV reported on Monday that she had to leave on medical grounds after being told it was “not safe” to return to camp.

A show spokesman told Sky News:

“As a precautionary measure, Olivia needed to leave the jungle to undergo some medical checks. “Unfortunately, the medical team has advised it is not safe for Olivia to return to camp as there needs to be further investigated. “She has been absolutely brilliant and she’ll be very much missed on the show.”

In the first episode, Attwood and singer Boy George was revealed as the two celebrities voted by the public to become Jungle VIPs, and they were both allowed to choose another celebrity to share a slap-up meal with. After their meal, Attwood and Moyles jumped 10,000 feet out of a helicopter onto a deserted island beach, where they later discovered that VIP stood for “Very Isolated People.”

Speaking about the skydive, an emotional Attwood said: “Oh my God I’m crying, that’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever done, ever. That is incredible. Top 10 experiences of my life. Just amazing.” The pair were joined by Boy George and his VIP pick, TV presenter and property expert Scarlette Douglas, who had to row their way to the beach.

First Trial

The group then discovered they would spend the night marooned on the island together, before taking on the first trial of the series and then joining their fellow celebrities in the main camp. Attwood appeared in series three of Love Island and went on to become one of the show’s most successful stars. Speaking before the start of I’m A Celebrity, she said she was looking forward to debunking the misconception that she is “high maintenance”.

It is unclear whether she will appear in the second episode of the series, which is scheduled to air on Monday evening. Sky News has reached out to the star’s representatives for comment. Following two series set at Gwrych Castle in North Wales due to COVID travel restrictions, the ten starting celebrities returned to the Australian jungle for the first time since 2019.

Former Health Secretary

The news that former health secretary Matt Hancock is set to join the camp as a late arrival has dominated headlines ahead of the series.

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, the show’s hosts, confirmed there will be two extra campmates arriving in the coming days, and poked fun at Hancock, the MP for West Suffolk, saying they would be “rolling out the welcome mat for them soon.” Grant Shapps, the Business Secretary, told Sky News on Monday morning that he would not vote for Mr. Hancock and that his fellow Tory MP should instead be “looking after his constituents.

“Mr. Shapps responded, “Tempting as that is, I think I’ll probably be focusing on my job as business secretary, and I’ll be off at COP27 later this week as well, so I fear I might miss him depending on how long he survives.” “I just think he should be here looking after his constituents, rather than somewhere in the jungle,” he added. Mr. Hancock is expected to appear on the show alongside comedian Seann Walsh, who made headlines in 2018 after being caught kissing his Strictly Come, Dancing partner.
