The Chase presenter lost out in the public vote on Wednesday night, being forced to exit the show just a few days before Sunday's big final.
Who was voted off I'm A Celebrity last night?
Anne Hegerty was voted off I'm A Celeb on Wednesday, December 5, making her the fifth star to leave the jungle.
Anne Hegerty was born on July 14, 1958, in Westminster, London, and grew up in Wood Green in North London.
She is a competitive quizzer who has appeared on Mastermind twice and reached the semi-finals of BBC quiz spin-off show Are You An Egghead in 2008.
Anne has also starred on Brain of Britain, and in 2017 was ranked in 65th place in the World Quizzing Championships.
Appearing on Loose Women in 2017, Anne revealed that she had been diagnosed with high-functioning autism in 2005 – and her struggles with the condition had left her with crippling debts.
However, her life was turned around with the assistance of a social worker, Jeff Mackenzie, who helped her to get her finances in order, and secured her audition for The Chase.
Anne then swapped quiz shows for Bushtucker Trials, appearing on this year's series of ITV's I'm A Celebrity.
She told The Sun: “The show bosses seem more anxious about my autism than I do. They keep saying, ‘You must say if there’s a problem’, and I keep saying, ‘ I’ll be fine.’ And they keep saying, ‘no no no that’s not good enough you have to promise if there’s a problem’.
