The program’s official Facebook page was also inundated with comments, one including: ‘He has some big time mental and emotional health issues, parent and manager issues, those combined terrible mix’.

And another with: ‘Tomic is in denial of the fact something is up! As in his mental health and not being happy. You could hear it in his voice and how he sounds’.

Bernard sensationally walked from I’m A Celebrity on Tuesday night, just three days into the show, after struggling through a Tucker Trial and admitting to cast mates that he was depressed.

A promo leading up to Tuesday’s episode saw the athlete opening up to co-star, housewife Jackie Gillies.

‘Half the time during the day I’m just depressed. I’ve never really had time to think about my thoughts,’ he said. 

‘I always have people around, my mobile phone, my life is so fast-paced.’ 

The show’s co-host Dr Chris Brown confirmed that Bernard had left the program, stating on-air: ‘The jungle drums have beaten all the way from the jungle.  

‘We can confirm right here and right now, and give you guys the exclusive Bernard Tomic. He has gone.’   

Bernard is known for his controversial remarks and most recently threatened to expose ‘the many things that are corrupt’ in Tennis Australia, even going so far as to blame the industry body for his temporary hiatus.

He told the Herald Sun last week: ‘It is obviously all federations have problems, look at the FIFA Federation that was all corrupt and there are many things inside Tennis Australia that are also corrupt that people don’t know which I am yet to speak about maybe in the coming future that will probably be there.’

Intent on representing the country again, Bernard went on to say: ‘It is going to take some effort from them and me as well. I for sure want to be back there representing my country and winning these matches for Australia. Obviously I have had a few problems with the Federation, so it is obviously going to take some time to change and I hope we can change in the next year or so.’ 

In July 2017, Bernard revealed to Sunday Night’s Melissa Doyle that he only plays professional tennis for the money, and insisted that people should not watch his games live.

‘Don’t come. Just watch on TV, you don’t have to pay anything,’ he stated.

He even shared that he will in no way come to love the sport: ‘No, no. I’m just going about it as a job.’ 

Earlier that month, Bernard was called an ’embarrassment’ on social media after admitting that he was bored during a game he lost at Wimbledon.

A press conference saw the German-born star admit: ‘I don’t know why, but I felt a little bit bored out there to be completely honest with you. So I feel holding a trophy or doing well, it doesn’t satisfy me anymore.’

Bernard added: ‘It’s not there. I couldn’t care less if I make a fourth-round US Open or I lose first round.’ 

That same match also saw tennis great Pat Cash reveal on Fox Sports that Bernard admitted to feigning injury and calling a strategic medical time-out.

Cash said on the program: ‘I saw the medical people out there and he admitted he faked an injury. What do you do? You call a medical time-out and they ask you “What’s wrong with you?” and you say “Well, nothing really. I just wanted some time off”.

‘I mean, that’s blatant cheating, first of all,’ Cash went on to say of the incident that saw Bernard being fined $20,370 [AUD].
