Nigel Havers

Nigel Havers is said to have quit the I'm A Celebrity jungle because he was worried about how he was coming across to both viewers and his wife. The married actor said his wife had begged him not to take part in the jungle-based reality series, saying he had done the show of his own accord.

A show insider told The Sun: "Nigel was terrified about how he was coming across, particularly as he and Shaun Ryder used to sit on the sofa looking at Kayla.

"His wife definitely wears the trousers in their relationship and he was worried she'd think he was flirting with Kayla."

Nigel quit the show early yesterday morning, with his leaving being shown on last night's episode. Viewers saw as Nigel walked across the bridge, joking: "I think I have changed my mind." when Kayla waved goodbye in her swimsuit.

The show continues tonight at 9PM on ITV1.
