The former Ipswich Town star was voted off at the semi-final stage.

In a double exit on Saturday night, the sports star left the jungle alongside Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter after securing the fewest votes from the public.

Bookies’ favourite Vicky Pattison of Geordie Shore fame will battle The Only Way Is Essex’s Ferne McCann and Union J’s George Shelley for the I’m A Celebrity crown.

“I’m gutted I didn’t make it to the final. I’m disappointed,” Dyer told presenters Ant and Dec during his interview.

“I came in thinking I’d have a game plan and it would be easy, but it was tough. I’ve never cried so much in my life. But I’ve also never had so much laughs in my life.”

He said when he joined the show that he would donate his entire fee to Ipswich-based The Jude Brady Foundation, which helps children across Suffolk for a range of different illnesses.

Dyer formed a close bond with Lady Colin Campbell, dubbed Lady C on the ITV show.

“It might surprise people,” he said of their friendship, “but I’m a mummy’s boy, she’s an older mother figure. We just hit it off.”

He admitted he was frustrated by her behaviour at times, but added: “She’s an amazing woman.”

Porter said the experience was a testing one due to not having enough food.

“I thought it would be really easy. I thought we’d get sandwiches!” she said. “I didn’t think I’d get bitten as much. It’s really hard.”

Earlier, the contestants won all five stars in the Celebrity Cyclone Bushtucker Trial.

Ant and Dec told the celebrities they had to get the five yellow stars on to the markers.

“You can stop the trial at any point by saying I’m a celebrity, get me out of here, but we won’t hear you because it’s too loud, so just carry on!” the Geordie duo joked.

However, they were also splashed by the water and air.

“Nobody said we were going to get wet as well!” cried Ant and Dec.

When the celebrities arrived back at camp, they were told five choc ices had been hidden and they had to find them before they melted.

All five contestants found the treats and agreed it had been “the best day”.

The camp mates discussed their best and worst jungle moments.

Essex’s McCann said: “Honestly, my high point was the snake trial. I can’t put into words how terrified I was. I hate trials, but bringing back 10 stars - you can’t buy that feeling. It was incredible.”

Dyer revealed his low moments came with the departures of boxer Chris Eubank and Lady C.

“My worst part was when Chris and Lady C left, I was so grumpy. That was tough for me as I’d formed such a great relationship with them and didn’t have that bond with other camp mates.

“At the time when those two left, I thought that was the end for me. But it helped me develop stronger relationships,” he said.

Porter talked about Disaster Chef, her memorable Bushtucker Trial.

“My lowest moments were being in Snake Rock when we had no food. Disaster Chef! That was the most strongest I was - I ate three cockroaches live, that was horrific.”

“I’d like to thank you all for being part of the best experience I’ve ever had,” said Pattison.

For the last night in the jungle, the five celebrities were treated to a slap-up meal.

Music was played in the camp so everyone danced and sang.
