TV presenter Bianca was a force to be reckoned with in the jungle, with fans sad to see her go. Upon returning to the world of Instagram and internet service, Bianca thanked viewers for their “love and support” during her time on the show. 

“It is actually pretty amazing to be out of the jungle, we’re going to have some nice, hot showers tonight,” she shared on Instagram after the elimination. “I am missing everyone already in camp but I can’t wait to come back home.”

Bianca was eliminated in the same episode as Anna Polyviou, with some fans saying it was “unfair” that the pair were sent home after receiving “less air time” than other contestants.

“These two ladies are amazing and wonderful role models. Passionate for their worthy causes. Both are extremely intelligent with knowledge that needs to be shared. Sad to see them go,” one fan wrote on Instagram.

“It’s always sad when they start to depart going to miss them on the show and that laugh from Bianca omg love it that’s for the entertainment guys,” added another.

Anna was sent home in a double elimination alongside Bianca. 

“I’M A CELEBRITY GET ME BACK IN,” she joked upon her return to Instagram. “I loved every second, at one stage they would of had to call security to get me out, LOVED it… I had the best time & made 12 new best friends… I’m overwhelmed with the endless messages, the love, the support… Thanks Australia.” 

And the feeling was mutual, with fans sharing their dissapointment over her eviction from the jungle. 

“Absolutely devastating that Anna was eliminated. Anna is a queen!” shared one fan.

“So gutted she is out, absolutely loved watching and getting to know her,” wrote another.

Kerri-Anne Kennerley

KAK was the first star to leave the jungle this season. She’s also the fifth person EVER to ask to leave by choice – calling out the catchphrase “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here.”

The reason for Kerri-Anne’s sudden departure? A confrontation with Domenica.

After being publicly voted in, Kerri-Anne, Domenica, Ian “Dicko” Dickson and Woody Whitelaw took part in the first eating trial of the season.

Things kicked off when Domenica called out Kerri-Anne for her unpreparedness to participate by eating the kudu ball (Kerri-Anne declared she’d rather go home than eat it).

Upon returning to camp, KAK said it would be unhealthy for everyone involved if she stayed in the jungle and called out the catchphrase.

While KAK told the other campmates “her side of the story” and was “visibly choked up” while recounting the events, Domenica was backed up by Woody and Dicko.

The Project co-host Bridget Hustwaite also called out the way KAK was portraying the events.

“I don’t really like how Dom is painted in these kinds of situations, that she is explosive or whatever. I think her disappointment was in Kerri-Anne not trying; it’s not misplaced,” Bridget said on The Project.

“Kerri-Anne’s talking about not doing self-analysis? I think she should.”

Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson

Despite being known as the ‘mean’ judge on the original run of Australian Idol, ‘Dicko’ was a joy to be around during his time in the camp, forming close bonds with his fellow contestants and speaking candidly about life in the spotlight, his regrets and how he has changed as a person. 

As he departed the jungle, ‘Dicko’ told hosts Chris and Julia that his time on I’m A Celeb had been ”really, really special.”

”I’ve loved it, but it’s time to go.”

”I feel full of contentment and am supremely grateful.”

Nick ‘Honeybadger’ Cummins

This honeybadger was the fourth to get the boot from the jungle in a surprise elimination that took everyone (and we mean EVERYONE) by surprise!

Despite being in the jungle for only 14 days, this former world-class rugby player made a huge impact on the game, having a go at every jungle trial no matter how gross, or physically taxing they were. 

He even went head-to-head with an angry python that wrapped itself around his hand and drew blood…what an effort!

”It’s been a pleasure, an absolute pleasure,” Nick said as he exited the game as his fellow contestants bid a tearful farewell. 

”A cracking adventure!.”

Be still our beating hearts!

The elimination of Logie award-winning actress, and ‘mother hen’ of the camp – Debra – broke the hearts of viewers tuning in nationwide. 

Impressing her campmates with her acting skills, kindness, and entertaining insights, her loss from the campsite will surely be felt. 

”The challenge and the charity aspect are important,” Debra said of her time in the show. 

”As is flying the flag for other women out there in their mid-sixties.”

Domenica Calarco 

In a major twist, frontrunner Domenica was booted from the jungle in a move that left viewers and her fellow campmates gobsmacked!

Despite leaving the jungle ”disappointed”, Dom said she had the ”best time ever” in camp. 

”I just think, I know in myself now I am so much stronger than what I thought I was. That is a huge lesson. For that, I will be eternally grateful.”

Taking to her Instagram following her departure, Dom thanked her fans for their support. 

“Thankyou so much Australia, without you this journey couldn’t have been possible! Raising funds for the Leukaemia Foundation was the reason and I’m so proud to have done that all by staying true to myself, pushing myself further than I ever have, and meeting some pretty amazing people along the way!”

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here Australia airs Sunday to Thursday, 7:30pm on 10 and 10 Play.

Peter Helliar

Despite being the number one contender to win from the season premiere, Peter was booted from the jungle just five days before the finale. 

During his time on the show, the 47-year-old comedian endeared himself to his campmates, and viewers watching from home, having a crack at all the jungle trials and forming close bonds with his fellow campmates. 

It is also interesting to note that Peter was eliminated on ANZAC Day, a day of significance for his chosen charity, Legacy.

Speaking to 10Play about his elimination, Peter said that “he couldn’t have asked for a better group of people” to share the experience with. 

“I was hoping that I might have two or three close mates in the jungle, and I thought I had earmarked a couple who might have been going in.”

“When I didn’t see them I was a little bit like, ‘Oh, okay…’ but I’m really glad it worked out like that because I got to know a bunch of people, a lot of them I had never met before, and it was a sensational experience.”

Woody Whitelaw 

He may not have been crowned king of the jungle, but Woody is a king of drive radio (and our hearts). 

“[It was a] completely life-changing experience,” Woody told 10Play after leaving the jungle adding, “I didn’t expect it to be so life-changing.”

“I just cannot wait to wrap my arms around my six-month-old girl Remi and my fiance Mim and go back to doing my favourite thing in the world,” he said. 

Always smiling and down for a laugh, Woody’s time in the jungle was certainly memorable, especially his recurring ‘Get Wood with Woody’ chats with allowed him to get to know each of his fellow celebs on a much deeper level.”

Fans were understandably upset to see Woody go, taking to Twitter to express their disappointment. 

“Woody is out now?!? COME ON! Why are all my favs going!” one person wrote. 

“Woody, you gorgeous man!!! Thought a top three finish for sure,” another user replied. 

Other users even suggested that Woody take over from Chris Brown as co-host for the 2024 season. 

“Major man crush on Woody! Seems like such a great human. Great heart. Need more men in the world like him.”

Nathan Henry & Adam Cooney

They entered the jungle as strangers and left together as best friends. 

Despite living polar opposite lives, these two were quick to form a close bond, their bromance bubbling away for the almost month they were in the jungle. 

In a highlight of this season, the pair even took part in a mock wedding! 

Given their undeniable platonic love for each other, it only made sense that the dynamic duo would depart the jungle together, which they did in the final elimination prior to the finale. 

Nathan’s time in the jungle was in support of Australian Breast Cancer Research whilst Adam entered to support the Cerebral Palsy Support Network.
