Reeves sent packing from jungle

Reunited: Vic Reeves and Nancy Sorrell are together again
TV comedian Vic Reeves has become the second person evicted from the Australian jungle in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Reeves, 45, whose real name is Jim Moir, only joined the show last week, arriving with the team's daily food parcel.

On Monday, his wife Nancy Sorrell was the first contestant to be voted out.

Reeves said he had considered an escape attempt to be reunited with Sorrell after her eviction.

I'm going to have to go. I'm missing Nancy too much

"When Nancy went I just got very miserable," he told hosts Ant and Dec after his eviction, wearing a cloak he had made himself during his stay.

"I said I'm going to have to go. I'm missing Nancy too much.

"If it was not allowed I would have pole vaulted. That's why I made this coat - I thought it would enable me to float."

Walkouts

Former All Saints singer Natalie Appleton and ex-East 17 star Brian Harvey walked out on the show before the first eviction took place.

Appleton quit rather than face another "bush tucker trial" while Harvey left after an argument with fellow contestant Janet Street-Porter.

Reeves said the searing heat in northern New South Wales, where the show is filmed, could be behind the rising tempers.

"It was hellishly hot. Everyone gets a bit tetchy," he said.

After she was voted out, Sorrell predicted her husband may follow her soon after.

She said: "He said he wouldn't cope very well without me. Maybe he will come out tomorrow."

Bookmakers Ladbrokes had made singer Sheila Ferguson evens to be voted off on Tuesday, with Reeves second favourite at 2/1.

It said Antonio Fargas, Huggy Bear in 1970s cop show Starsky and Hutch, was 4-1 favourite to be next out while comedian Joe Pasquale is the favourite to win.
