The Sun reports Grace says in the new programme: “Leaving my campmates and the girls will be the greatest regret of my life.”

An insider is also quoted as saying: “Grace also tells how she found it hard being in camp with people who under normal circumstances, she wouldn’t share a sleeping space with – and that includes divisive characters like Nigel.”

It is also claimed Grace felt a “lack of control” while living on the camp. And she is also said to have felt there was “nowhere to hide”.

Additionally, an unnamed source claimed to The Sun that Grace found it “tough” being away from family, and was “really pushed to the brink by the gruelling trials”.

Asked for comment on the tabloid story, Grace’s rep said it was “inaccurate”.

‘Grace had a positive relationship with everyone’

They said: “Grace had a positive relationship with everyone in camp, she was very close with them all and still feels sad to have left them so early.

Grace was very close with them all and still feels sad to have left them so early.

“You can see in the clips how sad the camp was when she left. As a reminder, the producers removed Grace from the show on medical grounds – Grace did not decide to leave.

“She wanted to stay but the show felt it was in her best interests to depart and they take their duty of care seriously.”
