US star Jamie Lynn Spears said she will spending time with her family following her early exit from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! this week.

The star joined food critic Grace Dent who also quit the show on medical grounds on Monday.

Spears, sister of pop icon Britney Spears, wrote on Instagram on Thursday: "I can’t wait to share with y’all everything about this once in a lifetime experience, but I don’t even know where to start when trying to describe what an incredibly special time and place I had with some of the absolute best humans I have ever met and consider family now.

"Thank y'all for welcoming me into your living rooms night after night, and for supporting me through all the highs and lows.

"I'm so grateful for this show, and all of the wonderful people apart of it! I will be taking some time to recovery and spend time with my family, but looking forward to sharing all about my journey on @imacelebrity with everyone! Love yallll."

Dent also broke her silence after landing back in the UK on Tuesday.

In an Instagram post on Thursday, she said she was feeling "overwhelming sad" about her premature departure, which producers said was due to "medical grounds."

"I spent 15 days without a phone or any contact with loved ones, living much of the time outdoors in a rain forest in very wet weather," she wrote in the post.

"It gave me a short, sharp glimpse into the pain some folk worldwide endure. Normal life, forever, will always feel beautiful," Dent added.

Dent then summarised a few of her "personal breakthroughs" on the show, which included being locked in a glass helmet filled with cockroaches and climbing down the side of a skyscraper.

She rounded off her post by saying: "My plan is to recover … and when the adrenaline finally ebbs away, to make some serious plans for dinner. Three courses, extra potatoes, definitely pudding. I think I deserve it."
