The comedian, 36, was joined by Owen Warner in the bottom two before hosts Ant and Dec announced that he was the next person to leave the camp. 

Joining Ant and Dec for his interview, Seann said: ‘That was crazy. What just happened?’ before going on to recall his initial shock at seeing Matt Hancock in the jungle as they first entered the camp.

Gone: Seann Walsh became the seventh star to be eliminated from the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! jungle on Friday night

Detailing his time on the show, Seann said: ‘I’m watering, the eyes. So many amazing memories. I absolutely loved it. It is tough and I don’t know how much that comes across through the screen but it is tough for everyone.

‘As soon as you said my name all of the toughness just goes and now I’m just left with absolutely incredible memories. I’m going to need a long time to process.’

On seeing disgraced former Health Secretary Matt when they entered camp as late arrivals, Seann told the hosts: ‘Very good guys… well done, I was not expecting that – I don’t think anyone else. 

‘When I saw Matt, I thought, ‘maybe I’m not going out first!”

Stunned: Joining Ant and Dec for his interview, Seann said: ‘That was crazy. What just happened?’ before going on to recall his initial shock at seeing Matt Hancock in the jungle as they first entered the camp

However, Seann, who formed a close friendship with the politician, was quick to add: ‘But he’s a lovely guy, he’s very funny.’

During the interview, the comedy star went on to discuss the issues he’s faced since his career took a nose-dive in the wake of his Strictly kissing scandal with Katya Jones and the subsequent gas lighting accusations by his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries. 

On his fears of how viewers and campmates would perceive him, he explained: ‘Well I think that’s my issue and in my head. 

Time to go: The comedian, 36, was joined by Owen Warner in the bottom two before hosts Ant and Dec announced that he was the next person to leave the camp

Good times: Detailing his time on the show, Seann said: ‘I’m watering, the eyes. So many amazing memories. I absolutely loved it’

‘We all listened to each other in there and everyone got their story out and there was so much support. We all accepted one and other for who we are today and in that jungle. To get this far it feels great.’

The stand-up comic also told of his joy at not only meeting popstar Boy George but getting to wash his back too, before joking that jungle life hadn’t cured his fear for spiders.

He added that he was ‘disappointed’ not to be in the highly-anticipated cyclone, but said he had ‘the best experience of my live, saying: ‘It was amazing.’

Before leaving, Seann tipped Jill Scott to be crowned Queen of the Jungle, telling the presenters: ‘I’m afraid it’s an easy answer. I love all of them but from the minute I met her, it had to be her… Jill. She’s the winner.’ 

Reflection: ‘As soon as you said my name all of the toughness just goes and now I’m just left with absolutely incredible memories. I’m going to need a long time to process’

Watching the Seann’s exit at home, viewers were quick to take to Twitter to share their thoughts on the star’s departure.

One tweeted: ‘Sad to see Seann leave tonight. He was hilarious. Genuinely the funniest person on the show. Having said that, it’s been clear to me who the final four would be out of the eleven campmates.’

While another shared: ‘No cos I’m so upset we won’t get to see Seann in the cyclone, I just know it would’ve been the most hilarious thing.’

‘Gutted Seann left before Matt, he was a lovely bloke’ tweeted a third watcher.

Reaction: Watching the Seann’s exit at home, viewers were quick to take to Twitter to share their thoughts on the star’s departure

‘Just caught up on #ImACeleb Gutted Seann’s gone 🙁 he would’ve been great for the Celebrity Cyclone’ responded a fourth person.

Another penned: ‘I have said this already. Liked the way Seann come across. (So funny) Being himself Seann.’

With an additional viewer adding: ‘absolute fix, not accepting the fact the british public have voted for matt hancock to do the cyclone over seann walsh, SO FUMING.’

His love: The comic was reunited with pregnant girlfriend Grace, who showed off her baby bup in a blue summer dress

Seann’s exit leaves Owen, Jill, Matt and Mike Tindall in the final four, with the campmates set to tackle the exciting Celebrity Cyclone trial. 

Although it was Seann who left the jungle, fan favourite Owen Warner also ended up in the bottom two on Friday. 

The Hollyoaks star, who bookies have revealed has 5/1 odds of winning the show, has been a huge hit with fans – who took to Twitter following the episode to detail their shock.

Idol: The stand-up comic also told of his joy at not only meeting popstar Boy George but getting to wash his back too, before joking that jungle life hadn’t cured his fear for spiders

Time to go: He added that he was ‘disappointed’ not to be in the highly-anticipated cyclone, but said he had ‘the best experience of my live, saying: ‘It was amazing’

‘She’s the winner’: Before leaving, Seann tipped Jill Scott to be crowned Queen of the Jungle, telling the presenters: ‘I’m afraid it’s an easy answer. I love all of them but from the minute I met her, it had to be her… Jill’

What an experience: Seann added that he was ‘disappointed’ not to be in the highly-anticipated cyclone, but said he had ‘the best experience of my live. It was amazing’

Presenters Ant and Dec made their way down to the camp towards the end of the episode to reveal the results of the public vote.

And going around each celebrity, the Geordie duo revealed that it ‘might’ be Owen or Seann who would be leaving the jungle, after they both received the fewest public votes.

The latter was then announced as the seventh celebrity to be evicted, leaving the Hollyoaks star in camp with former Health Secretary Matt Hancock, rugby pro Mike Tindall and Lioness Jill Scott. 

Vulnerable: Although it was Seann who left the jungle, fan favourite Owen Warner also ended up in the bottom two on Friday

Fan favourite: It was the first time that the Hollyoaks star has been at risk, with Ant and Dec revealing it ‘might’ be him to go

Tense: The vote was between Owen and Seann Walsh, with the latter being announced as the seventh celebrity to be voted out

But despite being saved from the vote, many fans were left in shock that Owen was even at risk in the first place.

Since entering the jungle, the young actor has firmly kept his place as a favourite amongst fans and fellow celebrities, entertaining viewers with his hilarious one-liners and candid chats.

And according to OLBG bookmakers, the star now has 5/1 odds to win the series – while Jill is placed at 2/5, Matt 6/1 and Mike at 8/1.

Furious: Many viewers furiously took to social media to display their anger at the actor being placed in this position

Taking to Twitter to share their shock following the episode, one user frantically questioned: ‘HOW WAS OWEN IN THE BOTTOM TWO’, as another echoed: ‘Owen was nearly out???’

‘If Owen isn’t in the final 3 I will be fighting you all,’ promised a third fan. 

As another penned: ‘Don’t put Owen in the bottom 2 ever again💔’ 

Earlier in the episode, the soap star once again kept his campmates entertained by teaching them how to fake cry on demand. 

Chatting with Seann and Jill, Owen demonstrated the techniques he uses on the set of Hollyoaks for an emotional scene – as the comedian and footballer attempted to give it a go.

While he also had fans in stitches by attempting different accents throughout the episode.

Owen rose to fame in his breakout role of Romeo Nightingale in soap Hollyoaks, which he joined in 2018 and won Best Soap Newcomer the same year at the Digital Spy Reader Award.

And despite having a string of high-profile relationships prior to entering the jungle, the reality show has catapulted the star into becoming a household name.

He will take on the infamous Celebrity Cyclone trial during Saturday evening’s episode of the show, before another campmate will be headed home from the jungle – leaving the three finalists. 

Owen is now in the final four celebrities alongside Health Secretary Matt Hancock, rugby pro Mike Tindall and Lioness Jill Scott

Meanwhile, Mike and Matt teamed up to take on the latest gruelling Bushtucker Trial during Friday’s episode, bagging four out of five stars for camp.

The duo found themselves dunked in fish guts and covered in spiders as they worked together in the Fallen Stars challenge, which saw them answering a string of puzzling questions. 

Raring to go, the former Health Secretary dubbed himself and the rugby player, both 44, ‘the dream team’ as they took on the tough challenge. 

I’m A Celebrity 2022: Meanwhile, Mike and Matt teamed up to take on the latest gruelling Bushtucker Trial during Friday’s episode, bagging four out of five stars for camp

Talking a big game before the trial, Mike assured: ‘You won’t be hearing any ‘Get me out of here’ words. Bring it on.’

While Matt added: ‘We’ve got the dream team really, we’re up for this, we’ll give it a go.’

And as the pair arrived to the trial, co-presenter Dec explained the rules: ‘This is Fallen Stars. There are five stars, but they’ve been smashed into pieces. One of you needs to enter these cages and put them back together. 

Challenge: The duo found themselves dunked in fish guts and covered in spiders as they worked together in the Fallen Stars challenge, which saw them answering a string of puzzling questions

‘The other person will win the amount of time you’re allowed in the cage by answering questions. That celebrity will be sat behind you there on the dunk tank. If they get a question wrong, they’re going in.’

While Ant added: ‘You’ll be given 30 seconds per round, but we’ll ask you three questions – for every question you answer correctly you’ll earn another 30 seconds. And the star puzzles will get harder as the cages progress.’

When it came time to decide who would do which job, Mike asked Matt if he liked puzzles, with the MP explaining that he did and would take on that job.


Dunked: Each question they got wrong saw a dunking into the horrible liquid-filled ‘dunk tank’

Making a splash! Mike suffered a few dunkings as they struggled to get all of the questions correct

Almost: And despite the tough work, they managed to bag just one off of a full house

Each question they got wrong saw a dunking into the horrible liquid-filled ‘dunk tank’.

As Matt worked his way through the first couple of puzzles, Ant said: ‘He’s good at puzzles – he said he was. He wasn’t fibbing!’

However, the MP was unable to finish one puzzle in the time given, so they earned four out of the five stars available. 

‘So close to nailing it, but four out of five, I’m sure in camp they’ll be thrilled. For us, we’ll still be thinking about how we could have just got that fifth as it was so close,’ Matt said after the trial.

No idea: Mike did struggle when hosts Ant & Dec ask: ‘What is the collective noun for a group of spiders?’

And being supported by their remaining campmates after the trial, Jill Scott said: ‘Four stars which was absolutely brilliant as it didn’t sound straight forward.’ 

It comes after Chris Moyles was the sixth campmate to be voted off this year’s series during Thursday night’s episode. 

The Radio DJ, 48, was named in the bottom two of the public vote by show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly with comedian Seann Walsh.

Taking a seat for his exit interview – before being reunited with his former campmates at their hotel – Chris said: ‘I just said this morning in the Bush Telegraph, ‘I’ve got this now, I’d really like to stay,’ before adding: ‘I’m gutted Matt Hancock is more popular than me!’

Farewell: It comes after Chris Moyles was the sixth campmate to be voted off this year’s series during Thursday night’s episode

Former Health Secretary Matt made the controversial decision to appear on the jungle survival series this year.

Speaking about the West Suffolk MP, Chris said: ‘I really struggled with it to be fair, I slagged him a bit. I separated Matt Hancock from Matt.

‘We had to live with him and he was winning the stars and getting us food.

Shocked: Chris was surprised he was voted off the show before former Health Secretary Matt Hancock, with the broadcaster saying ‘I’m gutted Matt Hancock is more popular than me!’

End of the road: Chris was named in the bottom two of the public vote by show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly with comedian Seann Walsh (right)

‘Matt Hancock, I’ve got massive issues with, but Matt I’ve got less issues with.’  

Chris said he felt like a ‘competition winner’ going into camp, adding: ‘I never got over the surrealness of it all. I’d often be the last one go to bed and I’d go to the dunny and I’d look back and I’d go, ‘Wow!”’

He added: ‘It’s such a privilege to be able to do it… To be a part of this is a real honour. I know I won’t appreciate it until I’m out.’

Unimpressed: Chris said of Matt during his exit interview: ‘I really struggled with it to be fair… I separated Matt Hancock from Matt’

Delighted: Chris said he felt like a ‘competition winner’ going into camp, adding: ‘I never got over the surrealness of it all’

The broadcaster struggled to successfully compete in the trials, at one point only managing to win one star for camp, meaning the group had one meal to share between them at a point when there was 11 people residing in camp.

He explained: ‘I’m an anxious scared man who is really comfortable in a radio studio. I’m not cut out for this life.’

Chris burst into tears as his girlfriend Tiffany Austin ran to greet him after he crossed the bridge out of camp as flares were set off and confetti was fired into the air.

Unforgettable: He added: ‘It’s such a privilege to be able to do it… To be a part of this is a real honour. I know I won’t appreciate it until I’m out’

Chris’s departure prompted a mixed reaction from the viewing public, with some taking to Twitter to say they were sorry to see him go, while others thought it was the right time.

Offering their congratulations to the star, one viewer tweeted: ‘Hugggge well done Chris! Gutted you’re out but love ya loads!!’

Another fan posted: ‘@ChrisMoyles you smashed it mate wish you had done [final trial] Cyclone we have loved watching you all the way #TeamMoyles baby.’

Emotional: Chris burst into tears as his girlfriend Tiffany Austin ran to greet him after he crossed the bridge out of camp as flares were set off and confetti was fired into the air

‘Sad to see Chris Moyles go, was in my top 3,’ wrote another home audience member.

While someone else shared: ‘Sooooo sad to see @ChrisMoyles leave the jungle. He was my winner all the way #teamMoyles #ImACelebrity.’  

‘Great job Chris, sad you’re out, but great to see you so happy!,’ posted another viewer.

Opinion: Chris received a mixed reaction on Twitter after his departure, with some viewers offering their support while others said his exit came at the right time

Pleased that Chris has voiced his opinion on Matt, one viewer wrote: ‘Fair play to you Chris Moyles for speaking out tonight about @matthancock what a joke!’

Looking forward to him returning to his Radio X show, someone else wrote: ‘Chris Moyles is brilliant. I am glad he is still reminding everyone about the ridiculousness of Matt Hancock in the jungle. Can’t wait to hear him on air again.’ 

However, an unimpressed viewer tweeted: ‘He had to go as he is the most boring person I have ever seen on TV!’

Public vote: Other viewers took to social media to give their view on Chris being voted out ahead of Matt
