Many viewers were surprised that Anne Hegerty didnt make it to the Im A Celeb final – but Harry Redknapp was surprised she was even still in the running.

Speaking after her elimination on Wednesday, Harry admitted that he thought Anne would be the very first contestant to leave.

Though its little wonder, since Noel Edmonds was his best ally in the jungle.

In a clip shown on Extra Camp, Harry revealed: Im happy for her. To be honest I was surprised.

I thought shed be the first one out for sure. When the voting first started I thought Anne would be the first one to go.

However this proved to be an unpopular opinion, when Anne survived four other eliminations – including Rita Simons, Malique Thompson-Dwyer and Sair Khan – to come in seventh place, over all.

Anne did have a pretty rough ride in the beginning, breaking down on the first night and contemplating leaving the jungle.

On eviction night, she reflected: I couldnt process it when we got there and the reality hit me. I thought, “What have I done?”.

I went to production and said, “I quit” and they said, “Just think about it”.

She even indicated that she might have wanted viewers to vote her out by now, saying: People kept on not voting me off! What was that about?

Her time in the competition finally came to an end last night when she landed in the bottom two with John Barrowman, as seven contestants became six.

She leaves behind Emily Atack, James McVey, Fleur East and Nick Knowles, as well as Harry and John in the fight to become jungle champ at Sundays final.
