Carol Vorderman is the fifth contestant to leave I'm A Celebrity 2016

We can't believe she's gone... Sob.

Carol Vorderman, queen of our hearts and modern day icon, has sadly been booted out of the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here jungle.

The countdown legend, who impressed viewers with her sassy and fiesty attitude whilst in the jungle, was the fifth celebrity to lose her place in the camp.

The vote off came down to Carol and Homes Under The Hammer presenter Martin Roberts.

Speaking to Ant and Dec in her exit inteview, Carol revealed that she was pleased to be out because she just wanted to see her two now very grown-up babies.

"I'm ready. I've had a great time. It's been three weeks in there and that's a really long time.

"I've really loved every minute of it. It's a lot nicer than I expected. We're all a team. In other series there's always been one, a niggler, but this year has been so different."

Addressing the postive vibe in camp this year where everyone is seeming to get along like a big happy family, the 55-year-old said:

"All the youngsters, Scarlett, Jordan, Joel and Sam are the same age as my children. They sent really good messages out there to young people to be nice and to be kind, I just love being around fantastic young people.

"I'm very fond of Martin. He has a really bad first day. He was a bit pompous but I think he just didn't know what he was getting into. He doesn't do celebrity.

"If you say things to him nicely, you've got to find a different way of saying it I think."

And as a self-proclaimed believer of girl power, Carol really wants one of the jungle ladies to take home the crown:

"I would like one of the girls to win, I'd like Sam to win. She's fantastic. I love Scarlett as well."
