Jack Maynard leaves I'm a Celebrity to defend himself

Jack Maynard leaves I'm a Celebrity to defend himself

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

They said he agreed with the decision "made by his representatives and ITV".

His publicist added it was "only fair" Maynard should leave the show to have the right to "defend himself" against the allegations.

"Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside of camp, Jack has had to withdraw from the show", said December.

YouTube star Jack Maynard has made an unexpected exit from I'm a Celebrity due to what have been described as "circumstances outside of camp".

Maynard - who is the younger brother of pop singer Conor - is seen grinning with nothing but a hat on in a bedroom on Snapchat.

Jack previously came under fire on Sunday after it was revealed he had repeatedly used the n-word and homophobic slurs in historic tweets - after which his representatives insisted he was "ashamed".

The tweets which grabbed the attention of the public, included both racial and homophobic slur and have since been removed from the social networking site.

Further posts insulted gay men and apparently mocked people with facial disfigurements.

The statement read: 'Jack is ashamed of what he said in these tweets, many of which were deleted a long time ago and were sent in response to a neighbour who was bullying him.

In another Tweet, posted in June 2011, Jack said: "At alices with my n****s!".

The 22-year-old is one of 10 contestants taking part in the programme, which started on Sunday.

It was alleged to have been jokingly shared between his friends before appearing online.

A spokesperson for the online star revealed he would be leaving the ITV show today, as Tuesday's episode aired.

Someone else said: "Wouldn't surprise us if Conor Maynard goes in the jungle now Jack's gone, the lad loves a cover more than anyone #ImACeleb", followed by a laughing face emoji.
