Grace Dent wrote a message to her campmates after quitting 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!'.

The 50-year-old broadcaster recently left the ITV show on "medical grounds" and she's explained her exit to the other campmates in a heartfelt message.

The letter - which was read out by actor Nick Pickard - said: "My dear campmates, I’m so sorry to let you down. I have left the camp for medical reasons.

"My heart is broken, I have loved and enjoyed getting to know you all. You’ve held me up and it’s been a pleasure being your friend through this experience. Leaving you all at this stage will be one of the saddest things in my life.

"I love you all.

"Your friend, Miss Grace Dent."

In response to the message, Frankie Dettori simply said: "Grace, we miss you."

Elsewhere, Danielle Harold replied: "Love you, Grace."

Earlier in the episode, Danielle was informed that she was to become a "last-minute substitute" for Grace in a Bushtucker Trial.

Asked how she felt about the trial, Danielle replied: "The shock might help a little bit and I’m glad I’m here with my Josie."

The 31-year-old actress - who is best known for playing Lola Pearce-Brown on 'EastEnders' - and Josie Gibson ultimately managed to win ten out of 12 possible stars for the camp.

Meanwhile, Grace's exit from the show was first confirmed by ITV.

The broadcaster said in a statement: "Unfortunately Grace Dent has left the show on medical grounds.

"She has been a great campmate and will be missed by her fellow celebrities and viewers alike."
