Rita Simons didn’t sleep for 24 hours after I’m A Celebrity exit

Rita Simons stayed awake for 24 hours following her ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ exit after downing "about 68 coffees" and eating "everything".
The former ‘EastEnders’ star was booted out of the Australian jungle on Tuesday night (04.12.18) but she didn’t manage to get any shut-eye in during the first day she was out of camp, because she suffered from "bad acid indigestion" after chowing down on too much grub, and necking cups of coffee.
Speaking on ‘I’m A Celebrity’ spin-off ‘Extra Camp’ last night (05.12.18), she said: "I would like to confess that I have not been to sleep at all.
"I wasn’t out, I was on a coffee high. I came out [of the jungle] and I had about 68 coffees.
"And I was doing all my press like that [shakes her hands].
"Then by the time I got to bed I had such bad acid indigestion because I’d eaten everything in the world, I just laid in bed like, ‘Urghh.’ "
Following her ‘I’m A Celebrity’ exit, Rita found it difficult to wash the camp fire smoke out of her hair, and confessed she couldn’t stop eating after being restricted to a diet of mainly rice and beans on the show.
She said: "I had a club sandwich, which I shoved in my face so quickly there wasn’t time to breathe.
"Then I got in the shower and scrubbed my entire body twice – and hair twice.
"I got out of the shower and my hair still stank of campfire smoke, and it still does a little bit now.
"Then I ate some more and some more and some more and some more and I haven’t stopped eating since."
