DARTS star Eric Bristow admitted he was disappointed not to make the final of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! after becoming the latest contestant to be voted out of the jungle.
The former world champion left camp following 20 days in the Australian wilderness and said he would have liked to have a go at one last challenge.
Asked by hosts Ant and Dec how he felt about departing the jungle, Eric said: "I had a great time but I would have liked to make the last three.
"I would have liked to have a go at (eating) the grubs for my kids."
Boxer David Haye, former Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts and actress Charlie Brooks will now battle it out for the reality series crown as the three remaining campmates left in the jungle.
Asked about his teasing of fellow celebrities during his time on the show, Eric, who tipped David to win, said: "I tell the truth whether it hurts or not. I tried to create a bit of atmosphere in the camp."
The sportsman, nicknamed The Crafty Cockney, was greeted by his son following his interview with the Geordie hosts, with the pair embracing each other as they posed for the awaiting press pack.
Earlier in the show, man mountain David was knocked to the floor by blasts of water, wind and flying balls in the Celebrity Cyclone task.
The heavyweight boxer was joined by his fellow campmates as they fought to win food in the energetic trial.
And despite hitting the deck on numerous occasions, the contestants managed to secure an impressive four meals in six minutes.
