Jacqueline Jossa breaks down in tears as James Haskell is booted from the I’m A Celeb jungle

Former rugby player James Haskell was booted off I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! on Tuesday's night episode and viewers watched as Jacqueline Jossa shed tears over the loss.

Going around the group, show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly announced that campmates Nadine Coyle, Jacqueline Jossa, Kate Garraway, Roman Kemp, Caitlyn Jenner, Andy Whyment and Myles Stephenson were all safe from elimination. But, the Geordie hosts paused when it came to contestant Ian Wright, saying he may be next to go.

Without giving the group a chance to think about who might be next to leave Snake Rock, the show hosts announced James Haskell would be going back home.

While the news didn't come as a shock to many of the viewers who voted, former EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa, who recently admitted she fancies Ant, could could be seen tearing up about the development, as the two became close throughout their time in the jungle.

Speaking to Ant and Dec after saying his goodbyes to his fellow campmates, James said he's had an "amazing" time braving the Bushtucker Trials and striking up friendships with the other stars.

When quizzed on who he hopes will win the show, he said: "I think Jacqueline [should win]."

He added: "She came in here wanting to do this for herself. I think she's had a tough time and I want her to prove everyone wrong."

James then took his leave as he walked across the bridge slowly before his TV presenter wife Chloe Madeley rushed to give him a giant hug and kiss.

This comes just one day after Chloe jumped to defend her husband after he had a number of outbursts aimed at his I'm A Celebrity campmates.

James had hit out at Jacqueline and Kate Garraway in arguments over food, dingo dollar challenges and Bushtucker trials.

Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on her show, Chloe stuck up for him, blaming a lack of food for his odd mood swings.

When asked how she thought he was getting on, Chloe said: "He had a 'hangry' episode.

"But from what I've seen he seems to have come back up again and he seems to be in a really good place."

The daughter of television royalty Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan also hit back at viewers who are calling James a "bully" due to his clashes with campmates.

She said: "I think he just had a really grumpy day and I think when you're sleep deprived and food deprived and you're surrounded by people you aren't necessarily friends with on the outside world, if you have a bad day, if you have a moody day you do kind of snap a bit.

"But I think the 'b' word is a little bit intense. I personally watched it and I just wanted to get in there and give him a hug and some food.

"We're incredibly close and I'm so, so proud of him. Despite his 'hangry' moments, I actually think he's doing a fantastic job and I'm really proud."
