But the Emmerdale actress seemed glad for be leaving the camp where she has spent the past 22 days.

Speaking to host Ant and Dec following her exit, she said: "I'm just so happy.

"I just want to see my family and to have a bath."

During her time in the jungle Lucy dealt with quite a lot of controversy, especially with model Amy Willerton.

Tensions between the two grew even more when Amy was constantly caught with various contraband items in camp, which Lucy labelled as selfish behaviour.

"It was mentally hard," she said. "I did have a few hard days in there, especially when it came to dealing with certain people.

"I am very straight talking, but I tried very much to keep my mouth shut because I didn't want to offend anyone. Causing agro just isn't necessary."

Before her jungle exit Lucy got the opportunity to take part in one final Bushtucker Trial along with remaining celebs Kian Egan and David Emanuel.

For 'In A Spin' Ant and Dec explained that each of the celebrities would sit inside one of three Perspex spinners.

When the klaxon sounded the celebrity in spinner one would need to find one of three allen keys that would be buried in a box filled with critters.

The keys would have to be passed along to each celebrity who would find the star that the key fits and undo it.

The star would then have to be passed back to the celebrity in spinner one and they would put it in a box and they would have to start again and attempt to get all three stars in six minutes.

David went into spinner one and was joined by pythons, Lucy went into spinner two and was joined by a Lace Monitor Lizard and Kian was in spinner three and was joined by rats.

"It's at moments like these that I can't quite believe I'm doing this," said David as the snakes were put in with him.

The celebrities managed to get two allen keys through the spinners and got two stars safely back in the box at the starting point, before their time was up.

"It's not bad, it's not brilliant, but it's absolutely fine," Lucy said afterwards.

This is the second time I've ever touched a snake and yeah, he was big, but I did it, I actually did it.

Later on the celebrities were given the opportunity to win some of the treats that they'd missed out on at the Outback Shack, however the general knowledge questions would be answered by their past campmates.

The first category was geography so they chose Rebecca to answer the question - Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in which continent?

Rebecca appeared on their jungle TV screen looking glamorous but was stumped at the question and wrongly guessed the answer was Asia.

For the maths category they chose Steve who was asked the square root of 81 and correctly answered 9 and cookies were won.

Knowing Annabel was knowledgeable about politics they chose her to tell the name of the deputy Prime Minister. She thought for a moment before correctly saying Nick Clegg and they won cheese and biscuits.

For the technology poser they asked Alfonso to answer which letter on a computer keyboard was between q and e? He wrongly said 'u' and they missed out on salt and pepper.

Mo was asked which TV character was played by Charlie Webb and she answered Debbie Dingle which won them baked beans.

The fashion question "Sarah Burton famously designed which celebrity wedding dress" which Vincent thought was Katie Price forfeited their hot chocolate.

Amy was selected to answer the pop music category and did not know the answer to 'Mikey Graham and Shane Lynch are members of which boyband?' Lucy, Kian and David lost out on ice lollies.

In the animal category they asked Matthew to reveal the name given to a baby kangaroo and won baked beans.

Finally it was only Joey to answer the question on history. His question was what year did the First World War end and he wrongly answered 1979.

With Lucy now gone, Kian and David will now battle it out to be crowned King of the Jungle during Sunday's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! final.

I thought that Lucy was a "moan". She complained about everyone else, but no-one mentioned her smoking. I would like to know how many cigarettes she smoked, as other people did not get treats. Every time I saw her she had a cigarette in her mouth.
