I’m A Celebrity bosses spent hours in talks discussing Jack Maynard before finally kicking him from the show.
It reportedly wasn’t easy for ITV bosses to axe Jack Maynard from I’m A Celebrity 2017, they spent hours in meetings before coming to a decision.
Jack Maynard, 22, was kicked out of I’m A Celebrity today by ITV producers following comments he has made in the past.
A source told The Mirror that bosses struggled to come to a decision earlier today: “Producers were locked in crisis talks for hours,
“ITV bosses were forced into a tense conversation about whether to kick out Jack.
“And they finally decided they had no choice but to let him go from the show.”
Jack’s tweets ranged from the n-word, branding certain people “retards” and commenting on fans looks quite harshly.
The tweets dated back to 2012, and have since been deleted.
Ant and Dec announced on Tuesday’s live show that Jack had been removed from the jungle, they said Jack “had to withdraw due to circumstances outside of the show’s control”.
An ITV spokesman said: “Due to circumstances outside camp Jack has had to withdraw from the show.”
In a new statement released by Jack’s agent, it read: “In the last few days Jack Maynard has been the subject of a succession of media stories which, given his position as a contestant on ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ – filmed in the Australian jungle, with no contact with the outside world, he has been unable to respond to.
“Since it is only fair that everyone should be aware of any allegations made against them and should also have the right to defend themselves, it was agreed that it would be better to bring him out of the show.
“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.”
If things weren’t already bad for Jack, his nudes apparently leaked today, moments before being axed from the jungle.
