Ollie Locke has said Spencer Matthews is thankful for the support he's received since leaving I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Made In Chelsea star Spencer was forced to withdraw from the jungle after just three days, later revealing that he'd been taking steroids ahead of arriving in Australia and producers felt it was in his best health interests for him to leave.

Speaking on Get Me Out Of Here NOW! last night, his co-star and friend Ollie said: "It's a shame Spencer is gone but I think he thanks everyone for the support. But I wish he was still there."

I'm A Celebrity 2015 late camp arrival: Spencer Matthews


In a statement to fans, Spencer said of his exit: "The simple answer is that I screwed up, and have some explaining to do. Shortly after I arrived in Australia I told the production team that I was taking a steroid-based medication that had begun some weeks ago.

"When I started taking this programme of pills it was in preparation for a charity boxing match which, ironically, never took place. Vanity, I suppose, had been the reason for wanting to bulk up a bit for the fight. I had intended to come off the pills gradually, but there was no time to do this before I reached the jungle.

"My admission to the production team that I was still taking these pills led to the conclusion that it would be unsafe for me to stay in the jungle - a decision which I found extremely hard to stomach. I pushed back but ultimately the show's duty of care prevailed and bags had to be packed."

His co-star Jamie Laing spoke out to support him last week, telling The Mirror: "Spenny is great. He is my best friend and he has my full support. People make mistakes and he's made a big one.

"But to come out and be so honest about everything the way he has is so bold. It is very easy to hide away from things like this but he came clean. Sadly, that decision got him kicked out of the jungle. It's very unfortunate because he was doing so well. But as I said, people do make mistakes. He made a decision and he's not happy with it."
