I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! contestant Grace Dent has left the show.

It's been confirmed ahead of tonight's (November 27) episode that the food critic has left the jungle on medical grounds.

"Unfortunately Grace Dent has left the show on medical grounds. She has been a great campmate and will be missed by her fellow celebrities and viewers alike," a spokesperson said of her departure.

Dent had been set to take part in the 'Down the Tubes' Bushtucker Trial alongside This Morning presenter Josie Gibson during tonight's show.

Digital Spy understands that EastEnders star Danielle Harold received the third-highest number of votes and will now join Josie to compete in the Trial instead.

Grace entered the jungle on day one of the series, taking part in the 'Walk the Plank' challenge alongside soap star Danielle, Made In Chelsea's Sam Thompson and First Dates maître d' Fred Sirieix.

Following the separation of camp, Grace was designated to the Away team in Snake Rock, with the Masterchef UK judge joined by Josie, Nick Pickard, Marvin Humes, Nigel Farage and late arrival Tony Bellew.

Ahead of her entrance to the series, Grace revealed she had agreed to take part after a "really difficult" few years which saw her lose both parents.

"I have been through a really difficult time over the last four or five years. My dad had dementia, I cared for him and I lost him. Mum had cancer and I lost her," she said.

"I think that this has made me very strong and resilient. This is going to be a big challenge and, now I am older, life is for living and it’s one of the reasons why I said yes."

I'm a Celebrity… airs on ITV1 and ITVX.
