Arlene’s fellow stars appeared emotional as Ant and Dec told them in camp.
Speaking to the Geordie duo after her elimination, the former Strictly star explained that the show was a lot harder than expected.
She said: “It is hard when there was arguments and sometimes the argument were so unnecessary.
“I know I’m leaving happily and what I’m excited about is one of them is going to win.”
Arlene went on to back Naughty Boy to win.
How did viewers respond?
Viewers quickly took to social media to comment on Arlene’s departure.
On Twitter, one said: “No great shock with Arlene going, barely featured… #ImACeleb.”
Another added: “Let’s watch Arlene’s best but. Didn’t know she had any #ImACeleb.”

A third wrote: “Not the biggest shock Arlene is 1st to go but shame it wasn’t Naughty. Clearly people enjoy him [bleeping] up trials and being a petulent toddler too much. Give me [bleeping] strength…. #ImACeleb.”
In addition, a fourth shared: “Me trying to find Arlene’s best bits when she hasn’t done very much #ImACeleb.”
A fifth wrote: “Think Arlene’s biggest highlight was when she learned how to wear a hat properly! #ImACeleb.”

Fair play to Arlene for being the oldest camp mate. #ImACeleb
