Sam Quek has been eliminated from I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! the night before Sunday’s final.

The jungle star lasted 22 days in camp but was voted out on Saturday night, leaving Joel Dommett, Scarlett Moffatt and Emmerdale star Adam Thomas to battle it out.

"I’m so nervous, I’m so overwhelmed… I can’t believe I got this far. I’m a bit emotional," said the Olympic hockey player during her exit interview with Ant and Dec.

"Yesterday felt like the final. All of us were so tight and I think when Martin and Wayne went, it was a massive hit. We were so shocked. And yesterday was a bit of a quieter day; it was a bit of a reminisce day."

Sam went on to tell the Geordie duo she’d like Adam to win, because "he’s come a long way… especially with spiders."

The 28-year-old sportswoman admits heading into the jungle was "a lot tougher" than she ever thought it would be.

She told hosts Ant and Dec: "When I lost that task to Adam, I was mortified. It took me a few days to get over that. I put more and more pressure on myself … It was a lot tougher [than I expected it to be].

"I’m so lucky to be in a position where I have so many people I can rely on – my family, team mates, my friends – and I thought I was quite self aware because we do all the training. But in the jungle, I learned lessons about myself that I would never learn anywhere else. It’s crazy but I loved every minute."

After a double eviction on Friday night – which saw Homes Under The Hammer presenter Martin Roberts and ex-footballer Wayne Bridge booted from the jungle – the final four took on the show’s infamous trial Celebrity Cyclone, where contestants were dressed as superheroes and blasted with a water cannon.

Moffatt 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.

Moffatt 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."

Telling the other campers about her favourite jungle memory, she said: "I remember sitting next to Carol Vorderman, laughing about how the trial was called The Big Bush Bake Off and I couldn’t stop laughing as she sat there eating turkey testicles and I thought, this is my life."

During a luxury dinner that the camp won after their trial success, Dommett agreed that he had had a brilliant experience.

He said: "This is the happiest I’ve ever been in my life, I’m so happy, it’s been a pleasure to know you all.

"This has been one of my favourite days in my entire life."
