I’m A Celebrity: Andrew Maxwell becomes the SECOND camp mate to be eliminated from the jungle… as he declares there was ‘never a moment of animosity’ between him and Ian Wright
I’m A Celebrity is heating up with just one week of the ITV show left.
And Andrew Maxwell became the second celebrity to be eliminated from the jungle after losing out in the viewer vote.
The comedian, 44, took the news well as he hugged his fellow celebrities before leaving camp, before stating that there was ‘never a moment of animosity’ between him and Ian Wright despite their constant clashes.

As he joined Ant and Dec for his post-exit interview, Andrew revealed that the biggest lesson he had learnt while on the show was ‘patience’ amid the hours of boredom in the camp.
He also told how before the show he wouldn’t want to do trials, but he soon changed his mind while in the jungle.
Ant and Dec also touched on his clashes with Ian Wright, with their rows even sparking bullying claims.
However, Andrew only had love for the former footballer, stating: ‘I love the man, we are really similar.’

Explaining why they may have locked horns, he explained: ‘Everyone’s a family man, both of us feel it the on the same level, we have the same rhythm of being down and missing family.
He continued: ‘There’s never been a moment of animosity.’
It comes after fans have criticised Ian’s ongoing arguments with Andrew, with television watchdog Ofcom telling MailOnline this week they’ve received 32 complaints over the ex footballer’s behaviour.
Wednesday night’s episode saw Ian, 56, and comedian Andrew, 44, have yet another clash after Andrew ate beans when he wasn’t supposed to.

Viewers took to Twitter to slam Ian for ‘bullying’, but his wife, who touched down in Australia on Wednesday, has defended him insisting her husband and Andrew ‘are both quite strong characters.’
Wednesday’s row saw Ian lash out at Andrew for helping himself to another portion of beans.
Speaking in the Bush Telegraph, Ian said: ‘I’ve had enough, it’s the hypocrisy of it, that just winds me up.’
Ofcom have told MailOnline they have received 32 complaints about ‘perceived bullying towards Andrew’ during Wednesday night’s episode.
Viewers were quick to criticise Ian’s reaction, with Loose Women star Denise Welch asking if Ian would slam his friend James Haskell in the same way.
‘Would Ian talk to James like he talks to Andrew? No!!! #imaceleb,’ the TV star tweeted, prompting a stream of tweets agreeing with her.
