The actress is the third celeb to be evicted from the jungle, following politician Nadine Dorries and singer Limahl, while comedian Brian Conley quit on medical grounds after ten days.

"I've had a fantastic time", Linda told hosts Ant and Dec on Friday.

She said she has always been a fan of the show but found it initially "much harder" than expected.

"You get here and it's even worse than you could have imagined," she said.

"After a couple of days, it's like second nature really, apart from the starvation."

Meanwhile the campers annoyed Charlie Brooks when they felt she wouldn't do as well in a bushtucker trial as some of the male campers.

The Eastender actress nominated herself to take part in the Scare Plane trial because she's not afraid of heights.

But the others thought boxer David Hayes might be a better choice, and they should opt for someone who was going to win the most stars.

David agreed and said: "The thing is who can get the most stars? Other than myself I'd nominate Hugo because I think Hugo's got the chance of getting the most amount of stars."

A disgruntled Charlie then said: "That makes it seem that I'm incapable of getting the stars and that isn't the case."

She let off steam in the Bush Telegraph, where she described David's attitude was "old fashioned sexism".

"It just really annoyed me when it was like a boy thing. A boy's going to bring back more stars than I'm capable of getting because that was quite clearly what he (David) was saying. It's old fashioned sexism," she said.

But as David arrived at the trial area, he warned Ant and Dec he might end up "screaming like a little girl" because he wasn't sure how happy he was with heights.

The boxer had to fly a plane into the middle of the valley and then leap onto a second plane, finding stars as he went.

And as he flew over the jungle, David was accompanied by passengers of cockroaches, meal worms and darkling beetles thanks to bug drops.

His focus remained on the task, despite the altitude when he said: "I'm not looking down just concentrating on the job in hand."

As ants nibbled at him, David commented: "These ants are doing well, eating me."

But despite scorpions he continued to collect stars and returned to the camp "very happy" with nine stars.

"Everybody believed in me so if I came back with a less than perfect score there would be a few raised eyebrows. I'm looking forward to what Rosemary is going to cook for us tonight," he told his fellow celebrities.

Hugo later said: "Low and behold, big surprise, surprise David came back with nine stars. Part of me kind of wanted him to come back with eight (stars) so there would be that little bit of leeway 'you didn't quite get the full amount.' But of course it's David Haye and he did."

Ashley added: "Of course he sweeped it, like he needed another boost of confidence."
