Spencer Matthews reveals he left I'm A Celebrity jungle over 'steroid-based medication' use

Reality TV star Spencer Matthews has revealed the reason behind his swift exit from the I'm A Celebrity jungle was down to concerns over his steroid use.

In a frank statement released today the 26-year-old admitted he had "screwed up" and that his bags had to be packed after he admitted to the show's production team that he was taking "a steroid-based medication".

Posting on Twitter this afternoon the Made in Chelsea star apologised to his family, friends and fans for disappointing them.

Matthews, who was a late entrant to the Australia-based show, had only been in the jungle for two days and had not even made it into the main camp before he was forced to leave "on medical grounds" on Friday.
