Speaking to hosts Ant and Dec after his name was called, Andrew said: "It's been an absolute pleasure. Thank you."

The hosts asked Andrew how he managed to keep his spirits up in the camp, and he said: "Just relentless banter."

Andrew also gushed over camp-mates Ian Wright and James Haskell, after fans claimed the pair had bullied him during the course of his stint.

Speaking about Ian, Andrew said: "I love the man, everyone is hugely into their families in there but I think both of us feel it at the same level and got on the same rhythm.

"But there was never even a moment of personal animosity. There was huge amounts of affection. Absolutely again it's learning to live with other people."


He then said he wanted James Haskell to win the show, telling Ant and Dec before he was finally reunited with wife Suraya: "He's a natural leader.

"Jim is relentlessness, keeping people's spirits up with banter or he's supporting people. But he hates dithering."

Andrew was referring to James's declaration that he was "too intelligent and switched on" to debate the Dingo Dollar Challenge question.


James declared he was "too intelligent and switched on" to debate the Dingo Dollar Challenge question – insisting it should be answered with a show of hands instead.

And after his disaster comments he became top of the charts to be eliminated next.

His chances of being given the boot are now widely set at 2/1, with EastEnders star Cliff Parisi close behind him, at 5/4 and 3/1, according to odds setters.

Ian Wright is considered the fourth most likely star to be sent packing in just a few hours' time – but trails by some distance at 14/1.


Least likely to go are likeable pair Andrew Whyment and Roman Kemp, with each of them considered such long shots their odds are set at 100-1.

James infuriated viewers for his reaction to his campmates last night, with one calling him a "bully and a control freak".

The star kicked off after dithering broke out in camp over the answer to a simple A or B question in last night's Dingo Dollar Challenge.

Adele Roberts was the first celebrity to leave the show this year on Friday night.
