Singer Jack Vidgen is the first cast member to be formally eliminated from I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here for 2021.
He was ejected through two challenges, losing to footballer Travis Varcoe and comedian Ash Williams.
With a pre-recorded season and no public voting producers are eliminating cast through two challenges: an all-in challenge where contestants had to estimate a walk of 200m, and a second test where three had to blindly guess the number of rats in a box.
Vidgen estimated just 10 of the 59 rats leading to him being ejected into a camp ‘swamp.’
The former Australia’s Got Talent winner managed to prove himself through tough trials including gruelling eating tests and a punishing ice challenge.
“I’ll never do it again but I’m glad I did it,” he said of a terrifying parachute jump. “That made me think I could do the trials.”
He also spoke about the difficulties of growing up in the spotlight and coming out to family and friends.
“It feels so special,” he said looking back on a highlights montage.
Two more names enter camp tonight, tipped to be former Goggleboxers Adam & Symon.
