Gogglebox's Yvie Jones hits back at I'm A Celeb campmate Ajay Rochester

Yvie Jones narrowly missed out on the top prize on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! when Richard Reid was crowned king of the jungle on Sunday night.

Her time on the show was definitely a whirlwind of a ride, and the drama kicked off even before the Gogglebox star officially entered the jungle.

Fellow campmate and former host of The Biggest Loser, Ajay Rochester, called out Yvie for supposedly handing over a medical note which detailed her dietary requirements, and told 10 Daily, Yvie needed to “harden the f**k up”.

However, when chatting to Yahoo Lifestyle, Yvie insisted Ajay needed to get her “facts straight”.

“She definitely didn’t have the full facts, and had she asked me about it she would have got the correct truth – you should always get your facts straight,” Yvie said.

“I ate everything that everyone else ate, I did food trials and got full stars.”

In fact, Yvie claimed Ajay was the one who had trouble sticking to the jungle diet.

“Ajay was the one that couldn’t eat because of her gastric sleeve and she couldn’t finish any of her food – I was getting seconds,” Yvie – who also underwent the gastric sleeve procedure in 2017 – explained.


Clarifying why she did have certain medical exemptions, Yvie said it was due to “two slipped discs in [her] back”.

“I wasn’t allowed to do anything where I might fall,” she added.

Now she’s out of the jungle and back on Aussie soil, Yvie’s excited to stretch her wings post-I’m A Celeb and Gogglebox.

“It’s been a great decision and I can’t wait to see what the future holds,” she said.

We can’t wait to see what’s in store for you either, Yvie.
