Van Day evicted from jungle show

Former Dollar singer David Van Day has been voted off I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The controversial contestant said he was "disappointed" to leave after spending 16 days in the jungle.

Van Day was a latecomer to the show who succeeded in winding up a number of his fellow celebrities, including glamour model Nicola McLean.

One of the three remaining contestants will be crowned king or queen of the jungle in a live final on Friday.

Speaking after his eviction, Van Day said: "It's been a real rollercoaster for me. I think my work there was finished. They don't need me interfering and messing with their minds."

He denied accusations from McLean that he had a game plan.

"I can't make it up," he said. "But Nicola gave me lots of currency. She made it really easy for me."

He was described by his fellow contestants as "out for himself", "like a snake in the grass" and "lazy".

But he laughed it all off and said he hoped former EastEnders actor Joe Swash would win the show.

"That guy is the salt of the earth," he said.

The three taking part in the final are Swash, actor George Takei and Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova.
