ITV I'm A Celebrity stars sadly no longer with us as new campmates enter the jungle
20.11.2023 - 21:09
ITV's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! has been a staple of our telly schedules since 2002, with famous faces braving everything from skydives to munching on bugs in locations as diverse as the Aussie jungle, South Africa's Krueger Park and even rainy Gwrych Castle in Wales.
This year, Jamie Lynn Spears, Sam Thompson, Josie Gibson, Fred Sirieix, Nella Rose, Nigel Farage, Grace Dent, Marvin Humes, Danielle Harold and Nick Pickard were all dropped into camp on Sunday, 19 November. As a new group of celebrities enter camp and the 23rd series gets underway, OK! remember some of the jungle favourites who are no long with us.
Since it first hit our screens two decades ago, fans have said goodbye to the likes of Eric Bristow, David Gest and Tara Palmer-Tomkinson. Tara Palmer-Tomkinson Model and socialite Tara was one of the first celebs to brave the jungle, joining the likes of Tony Blackburn, Christine Hamilton and Darren Day in the very first series.
She had us all in stitches and came close to being crowned Queen of the Jungle. One of her hilarious straight-talking moments that had viewers chuckling was when she told off Darren for breaking wind.
She said to him: "When you do that it makes me go 'yuck, I don't want to be near you'. I don't what to smell your insides 24/7." In February 2017, Tara sadly died aged 45.
She died from a peritonitis and a perforated ulcer, her sister later revealed.
Tara had been diagnosed with a prolactinoma - a benign tumour (adenoma) of the pituitary gland - the previous year. Following the heartbreaking news of her passing, campmate Darren tweeted: "I'm so sad to hear that Tara Palmer-Tomkinson has passed away.
Thoughts and love to her family RIP Tara." Freddie Starr Comedian Freddie Starr
