Jack Maynard recently gained fame as the first YouTuber on I'm A Celebrity and is now facing backlash for using racist and homophobic slurs in his tweets.

Stanley won over ITV viewers after mistaking footballer Jamie Vardy for a member of the England cricket team, and having to ask another celebrity if Ant and Dec were hosts of the show.

Jack, 22, made a decision to leave the show on Tuesday due to "circumstances outside the camp".

Jack Maynard's older brother, 25 year old Conor Maynard is the stand out choice for fans on Twitter.

The YouTube star quit the show after The Sun revealed he posted a number of racist and homophobic tweets before entering the jungle.

Jack is said to be "ashamed" by the tweets, which have since been deleted.

'Since it is only fair that everyone should be aware of any allegations made against them and should also have the right to defend themselves, it was agreed that it would be better to bring him out of the show.

Maynard, who has a Twitter following of 647K, has mocked gay men, called his friends the N-word and mocked people with facial disgurements to his impressionable young audience.

An ITV spokeswoman also said: "Jack has issued a full apology and has deleted the tweets that he sent".

The Sunreported that one of the X-rated images, taken on Snapchat, shows the 22-year-old vlogger smiling and wearing only a hat in a bedroom, while giving the thumbs up.

They concluded by saying Jack agreed with the decision made by his representatives and ITV to take him out of camp.

It was announced this evening that Jack had "withdrawn" from the ITV series, after just two days.

With Jack leaving the jungle before the public vote has even opened, will another celebrity be heading onto I'm A Celebrity.

His representative said Maynard was "ashamed" of those tweets and the star realises now that the language used was "completely unacceptable".
