I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here's Edwina Currie was so exhausted after her stint in the jungle that she vomited and fainted, according to reports.

Former MP Edwina finished in fourth place on the ITV1 show but it appears the lack of food and gruelling tasks have taken a toll on her health.

According to Mail Online, Edwina was travelling back to the contestants' hotel after she had been eliminated from I'm A Celebrity when she suddenly felt "nauseous and dizzy".

She then got off the coach and began vomiting in a field before suddenly passing out. The ITV1 show's medic, Bob McCarron, was summoned to the scene and administered first aid, before Edwina was taken back to her hotel where she is said to have "slept all afternoon".

Although 68-year-old Edwina is said to be feeling much better, she delayed her flight back to the UK and didn't attend the show's wrap party.

Edwina's daughter Debbie said: "Mum is completely exhausted and knackered.

"They come out of that jungle and it's like a whirlwind for them. They have to be up at the crack of dawn and it wears them out. It's exhaustion."

Before Edwina was eliminated, viewers saw her taking part in the show's most-loved Bushtucker Trial - the Celebrity Cyclone. The challenge saw the pensioner race along a slippery course before being battered and blown by wind machines and jets of water.

Speaking after her elimination, she said: "I'm a little old lady, so the odds of me being able to complete some of these trials were not very strong because I'm not strong.

"I'm only little. I've got little touches of arthritis in places. I've got little knobs [of arthritis], but I did my best because that's the way I was brought up."

All considering, we think Edwina did remarkably well!

Meanwhile, while Edwina was fourth to leave the jungle, Mel Sykes finished in third place and former X Factor contestant Jake Quickenden came second. Motorbike champ Carl 'Foggy' Fogerty was crowned King Of The Jungle.
