Spoilers ahead!

The first celebrity has been voted off this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Hosts Ant and Dec delivered the bad news to camp last night.

Choreographer and former Strictly judge Arlene Philipps was the first celebrity to be voted out.

The 78 year-old, who was the oldest ever celeb to take part in the reality series, left Gwrych Castle in North Wales on Sunday night after receiving the fewest public votes.

Speaking on her exit, Philipps admitted she was “relieved.”

She said: “You know, I want to see my family, but (I’m) emotional because of everything this has been, the highs and the lows.

"It’s been something in my life that I never imagined doing and it’s been extraordinary.

“I’d psyched myself up, I was so prepared for it… I’d focused on why I was doing this and what I want to achieve and get out of it you know for my granddaughter, to try to show I was fearless but it is hard.”

Phillips is backing producer Naughty Boy to win the show this year.

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight on Virgin Media One and Virgin Media Player.
