I’m a Celebrity: Hollie Arnold leaves show today

The first star to be eliminated from this year’s series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! has been revealed as Hollie Arnold.

The Paralympic gold medallist, 26, competes in the javelin and was awarded an MBE in 2017 for services to field athletics.

Arnold was born without her left forearm, and discovered her javelin talent while participating in an athletics course as a child. Soon afterwards, she participated in her first ever Paralympics and, at 13, she was among the youngest field athletes to ever compete in the games.

Reacting to Arnold leaving the show, Vernon Kay said: “Gutted, she’s been awesome in camp, she’s been fantastic.”

The celebrities were sad that Hollie had left them.

Bev Callard added: “Hollie is the most lovely girl, if she was my daughter I’d be so proud of her.”

Soap star Jessica Plummer said: “I love Hollie to pieces, she became my camp sister.”  

Victoria Derbyshire, Mo Farah and Shane Richie are among the celebrities who are yet to be voted off.

Due to coronavirus travel restrictions, I’m A Celebrity is being filmed for the first time outside of the Australian jungle. Instead production has been moved to a castle in Wales.
