Following his exit from the show on Tuesday evening, fans tuned in tonight and were shocked by the camp's emotional reaction to him leaving.

Taking to Twitter, I'm A Celeb fans claimed they had been "duped".

One person wrote: "The British public realising we may be been duped into thinking James was a nasty s**t."

While another added: "I think this truly shows how the editing of the show can make people look bad! I hated James In there, but this just proves how wrong I was."

A third person tweeted: "It must be devastating to all those hateful viewers to discover that James is actually loved and regarded highly by his camp mates... who are better qualified to judge him."

James Haskell sparked 32 complaints to Ofcom after his furious meltdown on Sunday.

Ofcom confirmed the exact number of formal complaints to The Sun Online, which centred on a meltdown over who would carry out a challenge.

He told his co-stars he was "too intelligent" to take part in the trial, following a long drawn out conversation over how it would be decided and who would put themselves forward.

He fumed to Andrew Maxwell: "“It irritates the p*** out of me because it’s that simple."

"Explain the question, answer the question A or B, it’s a circus of stupidity.

"I can’t do it, I’m too intelligent and too switched on, just put your hands right up, let someone count them, right the majority win, shut up and lets move on.”

Former EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa was devastated to see James go in tonight's episode and broke down in tears after hearing the news.

The mum-of-two sobbed: "He was definitely one of my favourite people in here, I felt like I had a big brother in here, it was so nice."

Then as they waved him off Caitlyn Jenner said: "This game sucks."

Roman Kemp joked: "Let’s block him on What’s App now!”

Minutes later though Roman was in tears and was comforted by Jacqueline.

"He was someone that I spoke to, I feel I don’t have that person now," Roman reflected.

"I had a real moment when James left because I realised I’d made a really good friend, it was a happy moment but also a sad one."

Ian Wright said: "James leaving has ripped the heart out of the camp, he’s supported every person in the camp and it’s a devastating blow and he’s left a void that won’t be filled."

Last night James became the fourth person to be eliminated from the jungle.

The rugby player went up against Ian Wright but Ant and Dec announced it was James who had received the lowest amount of votes from the public.

As he arrived to speak to the hosts, James admitted he was a bit tearful to leave his new pals.

The 34-year-old said: "I got quite emotional, I thought there's no way I'm going to well up here but I did."

Ant and Dec couldn't help but ask him about how 'ratty' he was at times in camp as he struggled with the lack of food.

James admitted: "I think I would have been ratty if I was fully fed. The Dingo Dollar Challenge is a 50-50 question and they want to have this debate and Powerpoint presentation.

"When we come to it, it is put your hand up for a or b. It is not that hard and you have to cut through the nonsense."
