Jamie Lynn Spears has suddenly exited the popular U.K. reality show “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!”

Spears’ last appearance on the show will be on Wednesday night’s episode. Meanwhile, her campmates were made aware that she left the camp and won’t be returning.

During her time on the show, Spears spoke candidly about the status of her relationship with her sister Britney Spears, saying, “I love her. Me and her throw down. The world’s seen that. I’ve learned to stop talking about it publicly, but you know what, families fight. Listen, we just do it better than most.”

“We’ve had very complicated circumstances and we both had to deal with them in different ways. Sometimes we took it out on each other when perhaps we shouldn’t have,” Spears continued. “I’ve been the one person in her life — and she can say this — I’ve never taken anything from her, you know? I’ve been the one person in her life who’s always said, ‘I just want to be your sister.'”

This year marks the 23rd season of “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!” This round of competition began on Nov. 19 in Murwillumbah, New South Wales. The show pits primarily U.K.-known celebrities against each other in a format that American audiences would recognize as a mix of “Survivor” and “Celebrity Big Brother.”
