I’m A Celebrity: ‘Overwhelmed’ Ian Wright is booted from the jungle, downs a glass of champagne, demands to see his wife and admits he needs to work on his ‘anger issues’

Ian Wright has been evicted from the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle – just 24 hours after his close friend James Haskell was booted out.

Ian admitted he felt ‘overwhelmed’ as he joined Ant & Dec for the eviction interview before downing a glass of champagne and demanding ‘where’s my missus?’

When asked about leaving, he said: ‘I feel it’s got to the time [to go], you need to be positive around people, I wasn’t positive enough for the young people. My time has come, it’s been unbelievable.’

He explained why he went on the show, saying: ‘I was looking for a new challenge. The challenge wasn’t what I was expecting. I found the mental side – I’ve got a lot to work on.’

He also celebrated the fact that he ‘didn’t get buried’ in any tasks.

About his mood swings, he said: ‘I couldn’t suppress my feelings otherwise I would have been worse than I was in there.

‘I’ve learned that I’ve got to be a little bit calmer. I feel I lose it too quickly. I have to try and stay in control. I need to watch it back and learn from mistakes. I’ve got to be myself but I have also got to rein it in a bit too.’

Of what he won’t miss, he said the boredom and said ‘my mind starts to fester’ and he declared he’d like to see Jacqueline Jossa win, after she ‘overcame her fears’.

The fourth campmate to be eliminated, James struggled to hold back tears as he bid farewell to the other celebrities.

He told Ant & Dec in his eviction chat: ‘You know what, I got quite emotional. Jacqueline started crying, Ian had tears in his eyes, and I thought “there’s no way I’m going to well up here”, and I did. I discovered a deep dark set of emotions.’

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on Thursday night at 9PM on ITV. The final airs on Sunday.
