The 22-year-old confirmed she was set to venture into the jungle, before finding out she has a "severe" nut allergy that could put her at risk while in camp.

Sharing a message with her followers, Stephanie said: "Yes it's true, I was signed up for I'm A Celebrity, but unfortunately due to a severe nut allergy it would be unsafe for me to take part in the jungle.

"I'm absolutely gutted as it would have been a brilliant experience and [I'm] sure I would have had you all laughing your socks off. Don't worry though, there [is] amazing stuff coming up for me so keep your eyes peeled!

"Good luck to my fellow campmates this year! I'll be watching. Big love, Stephanie."

On seeing her post, many of her fans were quick to comment, sharing their disappointment that Stephanie will no longer be heading to Australia.

One user said: "Can my life be more ruined than now!!! Noooooo, you would have been so good on it! #guttedisanunderstatement." While another user proposed: "Maybe celebrity big brother instead???"

Stephanie's confirmation of her jungle exit comes after reports revealed she was no longer deemed fit to take part.

After undergoing medical tests to check her health, The Daily Star revealed Stephanie was told she has a "potentially deadly" nut allergy that could be life-threatening if she was to fall ill in the jungle.

It was first rumoured Stephanie would be in this year's I'm A Celeb lineup back in October, with sources revealing the starlet wanted to show the public a different side to her.

Stephanie, who was axed from Hollyoaks earlier this year, has now turned her attentions to music and has been busy in the studio working on her own material.

It's said she would have joined former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison in the celeb camp, Louis Walsh and TOWIE star Ferne McCann - who is said to be in last minute talks with show bosses.
