Speaking to the show hosts, he said: “You know what, I got quite emotional. Jacqueline started crying, Ian had tears in his eyes, and I thought, ‘There’s no way I’m going to well up here’, and I did. I discovered a deep dark set of emotions.”

James lasted 18 days in the jungle, and came as the fourth eviction after Adele Roberts, Andrew Maxwell, and Cliff Parisi were all booted from the series.

But despite not winning the show, the rugby star still achieved what he set out to do on the series, which was to challenge himself.

He said: “I’ve been playing rugby for the last 18 and a half years, and for once I had a break and I wanted to reset my life, and this was the perfect kind of platform to do it.

“I’ve learned a lot about myself in terms of challenges and hardships, I can actually deal with quite well.

“Starving me, I don’t think was a good experience, but I found also I quite enjoyed helping other people.

“That was my biggest kind of thing that I really enjoyed.”

He would like to see actress Jacqueline Jossa crowned Queen of the Jungle during the final on Sunday (08.12.19).

“I think she came in here wanting to do this for herself, and I think she wanted to prove people wrong, and I think she’s had a bit of a hard time,” he said.

James has been a controversial figure in the camp, having lost his rag on occasion with several fellow celebrities.

Even his wife Chloe Madeley thought he would be out tonight.

Many viewers were certainly glad he got his marching orders, with many calling for Ian to go next…
