TEN is teasing that tonight Anthony Mundine quits TEN reality show I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
On Facebook he wrote, “Hey everyone! No doubt you have seen the headlines by now that I have left the jungle. It was an incredible experience but I miss my family and feel like I have accomplished everything I wanted to do. I did all but one of the trials (which I couldn’t compete in because of my foot) and met some great people and went out with a bang on an epic trial that you will see tonight Thanks for the supporting me on the show & make sure you watch me go out with a bang !! See you all back home.”
His departure comes less than two weeks after tennis player Bernard Tomic became the first ever contestant to quit the TEN series, citing mental health issues. But it divided viewers over whether he was genuine or not up to the task.
Mundine, whose comments have been heavily criticised by viewers, also maintained he had a rivalry with intruder boxer Danny Green.
“Viper Room seemed to push both Danny Green and Anthony Mundine to their limits,” co-host Chris Brown told News Corp.
“The expectation was that that trial would bring them closer together but it seems it may have been the straw that broke the man’s back.
“We’ve had many celebrities who are not elite sportsmen last the full six weeks.”
