Ironwoman first celebrity on the chopping block

COURTNEY Hancock's stay in the jungle has been a brief one after she was the first to be eliminated from I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

The ironwoman and surf sport champion attracted the least amount of support from the viewing public after facing stiff competition from former cricketer Shane Warne and Laurina Fleure, who fans love seeing in the tucker trials.

"The emotions are  just going everywhere right now," Hancock told hosts Chris Brown and Julia Morris.

"I miss the beach, my loved ones, my dog. I'll be getting back into being an athlete.... but what an experience.

"The baboons got to me; they were really scary and just not being free, being locked in, was hard."

Coming straight off competition, Hancock struggled with the meager 800-calorie per day diet.

"I found myself not being able to remember things," she said.

"It definitely makes me appreciate food."

Hancock nearly misses out on seeing the Irwins - Terri, Bindi and Robert - who will enter the camp tomorrow night.

She nominated Paul "The Chief" Harragon to take part in the next tucker trial featuring ostriches.

The show's eventual champion will win $100,000 for his or her chosen charity.

I'm A Celebrity continues tomorrow at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
