I'm A Celeb's Jack Vidgen's brutal eviction: 'That was gold'

While many fans were devastated to see Jack Vidgen leave the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here camp last night, they couldn’t stop laughing at the way he was booted from the show.

Jack found himself in the bottom three in the first elimination of the series, alongside Travis and Ash, who all had to estimate their walking distance to the Hell Hole of Destiny.

The 24-year-old was kicked from the competition after failing to guess how may rates were in the Hell Hole of Destiny, however, it was the way in which his elimination was carried out that had people howling with laughter online.

Jack was flung from his seat into a swamp, with a lot of gusto it must be said.


“Poor Jack but that was gold !!! #FlyingJack,” one person commented online.

“Jack literally being flung into a swamp absolutely SENDINGGG me why did it have to be that dramatic,” another person said.

“Jack literally went flying,” a Twitter user wrote, with another saying: “I mean it's not funny that I can't stop laughing but I'm loving that ejection mechanism.”

Another person agreed, writing: “I'm so, so sad that Jack is gone...but watching that ejection IS DESTROYING ME.”

Others called it the ‘best TV in a long time’.

Last night, bride Toni, groom Colin, maid of honour Alli, best man Jess and celebrant Dipper, completed a series of wedding formalities while wired up to electrodes.

The five celebrities ran through the gauntlet of marital celebrations and earned an impressive 10 stars for the wedding after party at camp.
