No sooner had Malcolm McLren been revealed as a contestant on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, it has now been confirmed that he has sensationally quite the show and branded it a "fix".

The 61-year-old former Sex Pistols manager travelled 5,000 miles from his home in Paris to the Austrlian Outback but according to an ITV spokeswoman, "the day they were due to go into the jungle, he changed his mind".

Outspoken McLaren said: "Their jungle is a glorified film set. The whole show is a circus. I had meetings with the producers and was shocked to hear I was never going to be in any danger in the jungle."

He added: "I think they fix it and they know exactly who is going to win the show. It’s all set up."

Prior to his departure, McLaren is said to have a fear of snakes and had given himself a motto of "Don't Bundle The Jungle" to help psyched himself up.

The departure of McLaren now leaves only PR guru Lynne Franks as the only  Jewish contestant left.
