Baldwin Quit I'm A Celebrity Over Insect Bites

STEPHEN BALDWIN quit reality TV show I'M A CELEBRITY... GET ME OUT OF HERE! after insects laid their eggs under his skin.
The actor proved popular on the programme and was tipped to win the series when it ends later this week (beg22Jun09), but he quit on Saturday (20Jun09) with no explanation.
Now the star has revealed he was bitten more than 125 times by flying critters - and was told by a medic that the insects had implanted larvae under his skin.
Speaking on blogtalkradio, Baldwin said: "I suffered in the first eight days of production, while in the jungle, over 125 insect bites on my body... I had about thirty on my left leg... 25 or 30 on each arm, kind of all over and two of them, much to my surprise, became quite lumpy initially.
"Within about 72 hours they were these half dollar-sized lumps under my skin that were probably about an inch thick and were situations where they just weren't a reaction that were the same as the others - 123 so to speak.
"I did get to take some time with the medic who explained that in his opinion at that point he didn't think that it was the 'implantation of insect larvae into my flesh', but that - oh gosh - that's what it could be... So they tested these things and sure enough, Stevie B was 'pregnant'."
Baldwin was so intrigued by the process he videotaped the medics removing the larvae from his skin, which he describes as the "creepiest thing that you could think of".
