Why did Olivia Attwood leave I’m A Celebrity?
A spokesperson initially said that she had to leave due to medical reasons: “As a precautionary measure Olivia needed to leave the jungle to undergo medical checks.
"Unfortunately, the medical team has advised that 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."
However, a statement posted on Olivia’s Instagram account left fans with more questions after the person who penned the message said the reality star was ‘heartbroken’ about having to leave, adding: “You will hear the truth from Olivia in due course” around her reasons for exiting the show.
An insider has now told this tabloid that she couldn’t return to camp due to the ‘strict’ Covid rules.
After having gone through her medical checks, Olivia couldn’t return as she broke the Covid bubble, and bosses were allegedly worried she could infect other contestants.
The 31-year-old would’ve had to endure another week’s isolation, which was deemed an “impossible situation”.
A TV insider said: “It was felt this would be too much time to spend away from the competition and potentially place her campmates at a disadvantage to her. Obviously viewers at home couldn’t include her in any votes, including selecting them for different challenges during the series.
"Olivia would have been going back in almost halfway through the series, which simply wasn’t fair. As frustrating and upsetting as that was for Olivia, who was willing to do whatever it took to go back, she could also see it was an impossible situation.”
However, ITV and Olivia herself are yet to confirm this.
