Technical Issues 'Ruined' Anne Hegerty's Emotional I'm A Celeb Exit

Anne Hegerty became the fifth star to leave the I'm A Celebrity jungle last night, although her exit was hit by technical sound issues.

While The Chase star seemed to be thrilled to be waving goodbye to the camp, viewers at home were frustrated by issues with the sound while watching at home.

While hosts Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly made their way into camp to reveal the results of the public vote, heavy breathing could be heard instead of who was going home.

After the results were read out, Anne embraced her fellow campmates to say goodbye.

She said: "Yes! I'm sorry I am just pleased. It's brilliant, isn't it?"

Anne dropped a huge bombshell during her final exit interview too, admitting that she had tried to quit in the first few hours of the show.

According to The Chase quiz master, she was talked out of leaving the show by show bosses, producers and the other celebrities starring on the beloved ITV series.

She said: "I felt like we were walking in to hell and we got to Snake Rock and I couldn't process it, the reality hit me and I was like 'what have I done'.

"I went into the BT the next morning and said 'I quit' and they said 'come back in a few hours'. I was a zombie in Snake Rock for the first 24 hours.

"I could not have done it with out ten other fantastic people, they are so kind."

Anne also revealed she felt 'disappointed' that she had not been 'braver' in one of the Bushtucker Trials were saw her covered in thousands of creepy crawlies.

"I am much more of a wimp than I thought I would be. I was less tolerant," she explained.

Anne also told Dec and Holly that she thinks DIY SOS presenter Nick Knowles will go all the way and become king of the jungle.

I'm A Celebrity continues on ITV at 9pm tonight.
