Anthony Mundine exits I’m A Celebrity

In tonight’s drama-filled episode of  I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here there was a shock departure no one saw coming.

Boxing legend and multi-sports athlete Anthony Mundine decided that his time was up in South African jungle.

Anthony opened up to Kerry Armstrong about how much he was missing his family and the impact that the isolation from his nearest and dearest was having on him.

Alongside boxing rival Danny Green, Anthony faced one of the most challenging and fear inducing trials in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! history: The Viper Room.

Trapped underground in a dark chamber of water, buried neck deep with 100 snakes, Anthony found solace in prayer as he faced his fears head on  Soon after returning to camp successfully with all 10 stars, Anthony told Kerry and Tiffany that he had made a decision to leave and that no amount of persuasion would change his mind.

In an touching and tear-filled scene, a softened Anthony gathered his campmates and new-found friends to reveal that he was departing the jungle.
