Jungle loser Willie saddled with hangover

FORMER racing champ Willie Carson became the latest star to leave the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! but turned down a glass of bubbly because he was nursing a hangover.

The 69-year-old, who was ejected from the reality contest last night after polling the fewest public votes, punched a fist in the air as he crossed the red carpet bridge.

Presenters Ant and Dec then offered him a glass of celebratory champagne, but he declined, saying: "I haven't got over the last one yet."

The night before Carson had been drinking in the hot tub with guest Peter Andre and contestants Antony Cotton, Dougie Poynter and Mark Wright, and was later seen staggering around camp in he middle of the night.

He said it felt "great" to be out of the jungle, adding his 20-day stint was tougher than he had imagined.

"I don't mind the conditions, it was the food -- not getting the food," he said.

Ant and Dec also showed the former jockey clips of people in the UK, including X Factor judge Kelly Rowland, performing the "Willie Wiggle" -- inspired by Carson.

Before leaving camp, Carson, who said he wanted all the contestants to win, kicked up a stink over his fellow campers' wind problem.

He moaned that Dougie Poynter and Mark Wright were all hot air after their regular diet of beans in camp.

He headed to the Bush Telegraph to let off steam about the issue of "hot smelly wind".
