I’m A Celebrity’s Nick Knowles’ ‘constant pain’ after jungle sacrifice

He gave up his luxury item

Nick Knowles melted hearts when he gave up his luxury item on I’m A Celebrity and gave it to his campmate Anne Hegerty earlier this week.

The Chase’s Anne, 60, has had a tough journey so far in the jungle and DIY SOS host Nick wanted to give Anne his pillow to help her sleep better.

However, according to The Sun, Nick needs a good pillow in the jungle because he has an “old shoulder injury” that still causes him pain.

An insider told the publication: “Nick handing his pillow over to Anne was actually even more generous than people at home know.

“He needs a good pillow because he has an old shoulder injury from a long time ago that still causes him pain. He gets a really stiff neck and will have been in constant pain sleeping in the jungle.

“But that’s so like Nick, he always puts other people first and would have wanted Anne to be happy.”

ED! has contacted representatives for Nick for comment.

It comes after Nick gave up his pillow to give to Anne.

He explained to the camp: “Do you know why I chose the pillow? So I could give it to anyone who was struggling sleeping.”

Throwing the pillow over to Anne, Nick added: “So, this is for you.”

Anne gushed: “Aw Nick, thank you.”

His fellow campmate James McVey told the Bush Telegraph: “What a gent Nick is and someone I am definitely going to aspire to be as lovely as.”

Earlier in the episode, Anne opened up to Nick after quitting her first Bushtucker trial earlier in the day after it all became too much for her.

The star, who was diagnosed with autism in 2007, told him: “I’ve had an incredibly tough time. I wasn’t expecting these levels of just physical discomfort.”

As she became teary, Anne added: “I’ve been struggling.”

It came after she faced the Monstrous Monoliths Trial but quit midway through when it all became too much for her.
