The final three contestants for I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! are left in the jungle after David Van Day was voted off the show.

The 80s pop star missed out on an place in the final of the ITV1 programme having polled the least number of votes.

David, 52, was a late arrival in the Australian jungle but managed to irritate a number of his fellow campmates, most notably glamour model Nicola McLean.

He admitted he was "disappointed" to have been voted off the eighth series of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! but laughed off other contestants' dislike for him.

"It's been a real rollercoaster for me," he added.

"I think my work was finished. There are three nice guys in there and I think they should be left alone to get on with things."

Actors Joe Swash and George Takei and tennis legend Martina Navratilova remain in the camp.

David tipped former Eastenders star Joe to win - even though the pair had recently fallen out - saying: "That guy is the salt of the earth."

When asked by ITV1 presenters Ant and Dec if he had had a "game plan", he replied: "Not particularly. I can't make it up. I could only react off other people's reactions.

"But Nicola gave me lots of currency. She made it really easy for me."
