Stanley Johnson is the fifth celebrity to be eliminated from the I’m a Celebrity jungle [ITV]
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers were left devastated on Wednesday, as Stanley Johnson was the fifth person to be eliminated from the jungle.
Following in the footsteps of Shappi Khorsandi, Kezia Dugdale, Rebekah Vardy and Vanessa White, Boris Johnson’s father said goodbye to the jungle as he walked the bridge to see Ant and Dec.
Stanley landed himself in the bottom two with Amir Khan, but ultimately it was the champion boxer who was saved.

Speaking to Ant and Dec in his interview, Stanley revealed he was “gutted to be out”, but added that he’d had a “wonderful time” in the jungle.
Explaining why he chose to take part on the show in the first place, Stanley added: “Look, I always say yes to things, and I couldn’t conceivably see why I shouldn’t.
“I love being in wonderful, empty places with only a few people.”

Stanley also revealed he was looking forward to looking at his emails after leaving the jungle.
“I want to know what’s been happening in the great outside world,” he said.
And making a dig at his son, he added: “And I want to know if Boris is still foreign secretary!”

Prior to his the 77-year-old’s elimination, people had even called for Dennis Wise to be ‘kicked off’ of the show for his treatment of Iain Lee.
Reacting to Stanley’s shock exit, one Twitter user wrote: “Don’t understand how Stanley has gone, one of the nicest people in there… yet Jamie, Amir and Dennis who are so horrible get to stay?
“Why do people vote for horrible people to stay in? Why do people like watching people be mean to others? it’s not even entertainment #imaceleb”
While another added: “The fact that people are saving Amir, Dennis and Jamie over Stanley Johnson is ridiculous. Beginning to think people would vote out Ant and Dec before those three at this rate #ImaCeleb”
