Havers quits jungle reality show

The veteran star has been camping with former Bond girl Britt Ekland, rocker Shaun Ryder and Olympic gold medallist Linford Christie as part of the series, which sees stars put to the test in trying tasks.

Havers threatened to quit in an episode screened on Sunday (21Nov10) after he was ordered to compete in a challenge in which the contestants received electric shocks.

After producers convinced him to continue on the programme, Havers gamely agreed to soldier on – but he eventually walked out of camp on Monday (22Nov10) and is now set to return to Britain.

In a statement posted on the show’s official website, a spokesman says, “We can confirm that Nigel Havers has hung up his boots and left the jungle.”
