Jack Maynard QUITS the show

The allegations come after Jack's Facebook page was taken down after he was removed from I'm A Celebrity...

A spokesman for the vlogger said that it was "only fair" that Maynard should be able to defend himself.

According to The Mirror, the vlogger caught a flight out of Australia on Tuesday afternoon United Kingdom time, just hours before news broke of his dramatic jungle exit. ITV bosses were forced into a tense conversation about whether to kick out Jack.

They added: "Jack agrees with this decision which was made by his representatives and ITV and thanks everyone who has supported him in the show this far".

He was reportedly placed on a flight back to the United Kingdom soon after so he wouldn't have to talk to members of the media who are now over in Oz to report on the show.

If you plan to ever become a TV star, be careful about what you post on social media.

The I'm A Celebrity 2017 star - who shockingly left the jungle this week - allegedly sent Facebook messages to a 14-year-old girl asking for photos of her in a bra, when he was 17 years old and was unaware of her age.

Following Jack's exit, the show revealed that Kezia Dugdale and Iain Lee will be replacing him on tomorrow night's instalment, where they will be tasked with competing a trial called "The Battle for 10 Downing Creek". There have been stories this week about racist and homophobic comments on his Twitter feed.

It's now at the centre of fresh allegations that he sent "inappropriate messages" online to a female fan, although he has yet to respond to that accusation.

It was announced yesterday evening (Tuesday) that Jack had "withdrawn" from the ITV series, after just two days.

Ultimately, the continued controversy swirling around Maynard led to his exit from I'm A Celebrity, which is now in its 17th season on ITV.
