"We seek to champion all our campmates and would always urge our audience to be kind when commenting on social media."
The celebrities in the Australian jungle are down to ten remaining contestants, with Britney Spear's younger sister Jamie Lynn having left the camp on medical grounds this week, just two days after food critic Grace Dent did the same thing.
Speaking after her departure, Jamie Lynn said on Instagram: "I can't wait to share with y'all everything about this once in a lifetime experience, but I don't even know where to start when trying to describe what an incredibly special time and place I had with some of the absolute best humans I have ever met and consider family now."
The show has already confirmed its finale date, with a feature-length episode set to crown the next King or Queen of the Jungle on December 10.
I'm a Celebrity… airs on ITV1 and ITVX.
