I'm A Celebrity: Bookies' Favourite Willie Carson Leaves The Jungle

Former racing champ Willie Carson has left the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! jungle.

He punched a fist in the air as he crossed the red carpet bridge.

The 69-year-old was ejected from the reality contest after polling the fewest public votes.

He said it felt "great" to be out of the jungle and said his 20-day stint was tougher than he imagined.

"I don't mind the conditions, it was the food - not getting the food," he said.

Presenters Ant and Dec showed him clips of people in the UK, including X Factor judge Kelly Rowland, performing the "Willie Wiggle" inspired by Carson.

He turned down the celebratory champagne, saying: "I haven't got over the last one yet."

The night before Carson had been drinking champagne in the hot tub with guest Peter Andre and contestants Antony Cotton, Dougie Poynter and Mark Wright.

Carson did not pick a favourite to win the show, saying he wanted all of them to win.
