Crissy jumps for joy as she leaves jungle

Actress Crissy Rock celebrated as she was booted out of the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! jungle.

The 53-year-old was ejected from the reality contest after polling the fewest public votes.

She said she had "the best laugh of my life" during her 19-day spell in the Australian jungle.

When presenters Ant and Dec told her the news, she jumped in the air and told former racing champ Willie Carson: "I am going home Willie. I am going to have bacon and egg for you."

The Scouser, who played brassy hotel manager Janey York in ITV comedy Benidorm, shouted "freedom" as she ran away from the camp.

She said: "I have had a lovely time, the pinnacle was Peter Andre."

Andre made a guest appearance in the camp yesterday, much to the delight of Rock and Fatima Whitbread.

Rock said she wanted Carson or Whitbread to win the reality show.

Earlier, Carson was seething after he found out he was forced to sleep in a rat-infested cave due to two of his campmates horsing around.

The 69-year-old lost his rag when he discovered Antony Cotton and Dougie Poynter had been stealing from the other contestants.

The duo had been put up to it by producers as part of a task to win luxuries for the rest of the camp.

But their pleas and apologies went unheeded by Carson who labelled them "thieves" in a foul-mouthed rant.

Their behaviour -- pinching belongings and towels -- led to the former jockey and Rock being sent off to spend the night with rats after they failed to identify the camp traitors.

As he arrived back in camp, he stormed: "You don't steal, you don't lie. I'm so f***ing angry."

McFly star Poynter admitted he felt "awful" about their exploits.
