And then there were three: Sam Quek leaves I'm A Celebrity, narrowly missing the final

Updated: 

Olympian Sam Quek has missed out on a place in the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! final by becoming the ninth person to be voted off.

The athlete was one of four celebrities left in the jungle alongside Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt, comedian Joel Dommett and soap star Adam Thomas.

Talking to hosts Ant and Dec after leaving she said: "I'm so nervous and so happy, I can't believe it's the end. I'm so overwhelmed, I never expected to get this far."

Sam, 28, said she had loved her time in the jungle, and was overwhelmed by the support she had received from fans.

"I came in here just to be myself to get on the map and inspire young girls, everyone, that sport is cool and this could be you one day," she explained.

She said she would like Adam to win as, like her, he had "come a long way" in facing his fear of critters.

Before her exit, the final four tackled the show's infamous trial Celebrity Cyclone, where they dressed as superheroes and were blasted with a water cannon.

Scarlett said: "Anyone who knows me knows how much I bang on about this every year and now I'm going to be doing it in real life."

After the trial, which they completed successfully, all four agreed that they had loved it and felt happy to have enjoyed it together.

Scarlett said: "The cyclone was better than I ever could imagine and I'm not kidding I've literally imagined it for about ten years now.

"I'm so content with life."

A shock double eviction on Friday night saw Homes Under The Hammer presenter Martin Roberts and ex-footballer Wayne Bridge booted from the jungle.

The winner of the show will be crowned during Sunday night's episode.
