Reigning King of the Jungle Kian Egan has revealed his surprise at Jimmy Bullard becoming the first camper to be voted off I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Westlife star Kian took to Twitter last night to tell fans that he was convinced ex-footballer Jimmy would be taking over his crown.

Kian thought Jimmy would win the show.

Jimmy had been an early favourite to win the ITV show, but it has since been suggested that Jimmy's 'banter' with campmate Jake Quickenden may have resulted in his exit.

Kian tweeted: "I really thought I would be passing the crown to Jimmy but it looks like "the banter" got the better of him! @Imacelebrity #ImACeleb."

Jimmy raised a few eyebrows over the weekend when he was seen telling former X Factor contestant Jake that he couldn't work out why he was chosen to enter the jungle or what his talent was.

The pair both said that it was just harmless banter, but some viewers thought Jimmy had taken it too far.

Following his exit, Jimmy said on ITV's Good Morning Britain today: "It was totally tongue in cheek. The way it came across on TV is totally not how it was in camp."
