Love Island star Olivia Attwood has broken her silence after quitting I’m a Celebrity after just one day in the jungle.

The reality TV contestant, 31, was the first person from the dating show to sign up for I’m a Celebrity but has had to quit 24 hours into the series on medical grounds.

In an emotional Instagram story, Olivia's spokesperson said: "To say Olivia is heartbroken is an understatement, she dreamed of doing I'm A Celeb for years and was absolutely loving every second of the show and throwing herself into the jungle life feet first ( as we knew she would).

The post continued: " However for reasons beyond her control, her journey has been cut short.

"Your support and kind words have meant the absolute world to her, now as much as it always has."

"You will hear the truth from Olivia in due course and she will be back on your screens in the New Year."

Why did Olivia Attwood quit I'm A Celeb?

A show source told The Sun: "Olivia was involved in a medical drama overnight.

"She really wanted to go back into the camp, but medics won't let her."

In Sunday’s show, the first of the series, Olivia was voted as a Jungle VIP by the public, choosing Chris Moyles to accompany her for a special task.

After enjoying a meal together, the unlikely duo was tasked with jumping out of a helicopter from 10,000 feet.

Following the challenge, Olivia said: “Oh my god I'm crying, that's the most amazing thing I've ever done, ever. That is incredible. Top 10 experience of my life. Just amazing."
