Olivia Attwood is said to be "heartbroken" following her exit from I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! after being forced to quit on "medical grounds".

Following the announcement Olivia would be leaving the show, a statement was posted on her Instagram story by her team, who said Olivia was "heartbroken" over leaving and had been dreaming of going on the show for years.

They said: "To say Olivia is heartbroken would be an understatement.

"She dreamed of doing 'I'm a Celeb' for years, and was absolutely loving every second of the show and throwing herself into jungle life feet first (just as we knew she would).

"However, for reasons beyond her control her journey has been cut short. Your support and kind words have meant the absolute world to her, now as much as it always has.

"You will hear the truth from Olivia in due course and she will be back on your screens in the New Year."

The 2022 series kicked off on ITV on 6th November, but after only one day Olivia Attwood from Love Island left the camp. According to reports, the 31-year-old "left the camp after being involved in a medical drama" and is now "on her way home."

A show insider told The Sun: "Olivia was involved in a medical drama overnight. She really want[ed] to go back into the camp but medics won't let her."

In an official statement, ITV told Cosmopolitan UK "As a precautionary measure Olivia needed to leave the jungle to undergo some medical checks. Unfortunately, the medical team has advised it is not safe for Olivia to return to camp as there needs to be further investigation. She has been absolutely brilliant and she’ll be very much missed on the show."

During the launch episode, Olivia had to skydive out of a helicopter, in order to make it into the camp. "It's a once in a lifetime opportunity," Olivia said. "I just need to get back on safe ground in one piece - both boobs, all the veneers, everything.'

After completing the jump, she continued, "Oh my god I'm crying, that's the most amazing thing I've ever done, ever. That is incredible. Top 10 experience of my life. Just amazing. I didn't expect to be landing on a beach - where the hell are we?"

Here's to hoping everything is OK.
