Stanley Johnson leaves I’m A Celeb

Stanley Johnson leaves I’m A Celeb

Stanley Johnson has been evicted from ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’.
The 77-year-old politician and author has become the fifth celebrity to leave the ITV reality competition, after the voting public failed to send in enough votes to keep him in the show.
And Stanley – who is the father of fellow politician Boris Johnson, who is currently foreign secretary – is "gutted" to be leaving behind the new friends he’s made whilst in the camp.
Speaking to hosts Ant and Dec after his departure, he said: "I’m gutted to be out. Well, actually my gut is considerably smaller than it was, but I am gutted. I’m sorry. It’s been a wonderful time, it couldn’t have been better."
Stanley admitted his decision to agree to appear on the show came as he was keen to head out into the "wonderful" Australian jungle, as he loves to explore new places.
He said: "I always say yes to things, and I couldn’t conceivably see why I shouldn’t. I love being in wonderful places, wonderful empty places where there’s only a few people."
And the politician – who is an advocate for environmental and population issues – also took a moment to praise the jungle site for its beautiful scenery.
He said: "It’s a wonderful environment. Congratulations Australia for turning up this fantastic spot and keeping this as part of a great world heritage site."
But Stanley admits the best thing about being in the jungle is the strict food portions which mean he’s been able to shed a few pounds.
He joked: "Above all, we lose weight. This has been the most wonderful form of gastric surgery you can conceivably imagine."
The politician – who was the oldest star to take part in the show – is now backing ‘Made In Chelsea’ star Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo to win the competition, after striking up an unlikely friendship with her inside the camp.
