Jack Maynard quits one day in following homophobic and racist tweets

Shame I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here star Jack Maynard has come under fire after it was revealed he had repeatedly used the n-word and homophobic slurs in tweets posted between 2011-2013 reports The Sun

A spokesperson for the show said: "Due to circumstances outside camp Jack has had to withdraw from the show".

He was a personal trainer but has struck fame through his Youtube channel which has 1.2 million subscribers.

Maynard appeared on Tuesday night's show but presenters Ant and Dec confirmed his removal half-way through the programme, telling viewers they could not vote for him in Wednesday's bushtucker trial. Get Me Out Of Here! - filmed in the Australian jungle, with no contact with the outside world, he has been unable to respond.

They concluded by saying Jack agreed with the decision made by his representatives and ITV to take him out of camp. As a result, a decision was made to remove him so that he was made aware of the allegations.

"Who gives a f**k about jack Maynard, get someone better in like Phillip schofield!"

Jack's tweets ranged from the n-word, branding certain people "retards" and commenting on fans looks quite harshly.

Though neither I'm A Celeb or ITV have confirmed the reasoning for Jack's untimely exit, there's been speculation on social media that it may be due to homophobic and racist comments that were unearthed on Jack's Twitter from between 2011 and 2013.

The images, which are alleged to be of the YouTuber, were shared on Snapchat - reportedly between Jack's friends - before they leaked into the public domain.

'He would never use that language now and realises that, as someone who was bullied himself, this kind of retaliatory, inflammatory, insulting language is completely unacceptable'.

An ITV spokeswoman added: "Jack has issued a full apology and has deleted the tweets that he sent".

The 22-year-old from Brighton was unveiled to the press in Queensland, Australia, ahead of his stint on the reality show which starts on Sunday.

Jack's tweets have become a talking point today, with Lorraine and Loose Women debating whether he should be allowed a place in the jungle.
