On Thursday, December 9, 2021, Louise Minchin was evicted from the castle.
She was the reigning camp leader at the time of her eviction, as well as being named as the camp ‘mother’ for her caring nature towards the other campmates.
Louise said while watching her highlights: “The thing I’ve loved most is our relationships… of course I will miss my campmates, it’s been brilliant.”
She told hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly: “I’ve learned so much about myself,
“I’ve learned about other people.
Thank you for your support in keeping me here for so long, it’s been life-changing.”
Louise is the fifth evictee, coming ahead of Naughty Boy who clashed with Paralympian Kadeena Cox over cooking duties in the kitchen.

TV presenter Richard became the first celeb to leave the castle after being rushed to hospital.
Speaking about leaving he said: “Hello all! Richard here – firstly just to say that I’m absolutely FINE.
“I started to feel briefly unwell in the small hours of the morning and was taken to hospital as a precaution.
“By leaving the camp, I had consequently broken the Covid ‘bubble’ and as such I’ve had to leave the castle and all the wonderful celebs that remain in the camp.
“Obviously I’m gutted to be leaving so soon but the safety of all the campmates is the number one priority.
Arlene Phillips was the first to leave the camp because of the public vote[/caption]
Choreographer and former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips became the first celeb to feel the wrath of the public, and was voted off first.
Speaking to hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly after they delivered the public’s verdict, she said she was disappointed with the news.
Asked if she struggled to keep order in camp with the rows that Naughty Boy has found himself at the centre of, she said: “I tried to keep the chain strong.
“Of course, it is hard when there are arguments and sometimes those arguments were so unnecessarily.”
Paralympian Kadeena was the second person to be booted off the show after she went head to head with her good pal Louise Minchin.
Kadeena admitted to hosts Ant and Dec during her exit interview: “It was harder than I thought it would be.”
During her time in camp, Kadeena had bust-ups with Naughty Boy in the kitchen as they argued over cooking.
She said of him: “Never have two chefs in one kitchen.”
Snoochie Shy was third campmate to leave[/caption]
Snoochie Shy was third to leave as she was with Naughty Boy in the bottom two.
The Radio star’s co-stars were shocked by her early exit as they rushed to say their goodbyes.
Watching back her best bits with hosts Ant and Dec, Snoochie said: “It’s quite emotional.
“I met so many great people. You become such close friends really quickly. I feel like I’ve got a little family.”
Music producer Naughty Boy was the fourth person to leave camp.
He told Ant and Dec he felt he’d grown from “a boy into a man” and he believed his mum was proud of him as she watched back home.
The producer also joked about turning his Bushtucker Trial screams into a “symphony” when he got home.
BBC newsreader Louise Minchin became the fifth person to leave camp.
She said the show taught how ‘how much I cared about caring,’ and prepared hosts Ant and Dec for an upcoming argument to come, before admitting she wanted her fellow campmate Frankie Bridge to win.
