Despite this, Danielle has thrown her support behind Sam taking out the title and being named King of The Jungle in Sunday’s finale.

Speaking to hosts Ant and Dec after her elimination, she said: ‘Sam, please vote for Sam… he’s such a trooper, he’s such a great guy.

‘[Sam’s] literally become a brother to me. We’re both a bit crazy, bubbly and loud, probably got on everyone’s nerves down there… he made me laugh so much.

‘He’s the most amazing guy, my best mate in there and we just had the absolute best time. We did not stop laughing the whole way.’

She added: ‘I thought [his energy] was brilliant, I’m egging it on. You need someone down there with energy constant, when you dip, you need someone to bring you back up, and that’s Sam.’

Her comments come after Hollyoaks star Nick Pickard also backed Sam to win the series after his exit the day before Danielle’s.

‘Sam deserves it, well they all deserve it, but he does and I think he really wants to win… Sam’s the lifeblood in there, it wouldn’t be the same without him, he’s got so much energy,’ he said.
