Jack Maynard forced to leave I'm a Celebrity

I'm A Celeb's Jack Maynard 'ashamed' of unacceptable tweets

I'm A Celeb 2017: Backlash as Jack Maynard's horrific deleted tweets resurface

As a result, a decision was made to remove him so that he was made aware of the allegations.

"Due to circumstances outside camp Jack has had to withdraw from the show".

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here continues everyday on ITV at 9pm.

The younger brother of British pop sensation Conor Maynard, 25, was taken out of the Australian jungle earlier this week, it was confirmed in a statement to MailOnline on Tuesday.

YouTuber Jack Maynard has made a surprise exit from British reality show "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here" due to what has been described as "circumstances outside of camp".

Jack Maynard appears to have already departed the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here jungle.

The tweets, which were all shared between 2011-13 (when Jack was a teenager), include homophobic, ableist and racist slurs.

'Jack agrees with this decision which was made by his representatives and ITV and thanks everyone who has supported him in the show this far'.

From his official Twitter account he used the N-word in a series of posts and branded other users "retarded" and "f****ts".

Newspaper stories about Jack had focused on his past social media postings, with claims they contained racist and homophobic language.

A spokeswoman for the vlogger said at the time: "Jack is ashamed of these tweets, many were deleted a long time ago".

'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'.

This comes after Zoella was also recently forced to issue her own statement surrounding past tweets, after they were put in the spotlight for including offensive words.

Another has been doing the rounds with Jack standing in a bathroom with jogging bottoms around his knees.

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.
