Shock over I’m A Celebrity elimination

JOSH Gibson has made a surprise early exit from the South African jungle camp on I'm A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!

Despite being an early favourite to win the reality series, viewers opted to send the former AFL player home ahead of next week's grand finale episode.

Gibson's departure leaves seven celebrities vying for the jungle crown, including Fiona O'Loughlin, Peter Rowsthorn, Jackie Gillies and Vicky Pattison.

They've lasted just over five weeks in the jungle camp living off basic food rations and competing in various challenges in the hope of securing $100,000 for their chosen charity.

Gibson's exit shocked his fellow camp mates.

"I did not see that coming, that really put a spanner in the works," British reality star Pattison told camp mates.

The series winner will be announced next Monday night.
