I'm A Celeb star Hollie Arnold was the first contestant to leave the show on Friday, 27 November, but she has been left feeling "really happy" despite her departure.

The paralympian, 26, has revealed she lost almost a stone during her two weeks in the North Wales castle where she was forced to live on rice and beans.

And she told on I'm A Celebrity… The Daily Drop today, Monday, how she is delighted with her weight loss.

Speaking to host Vick Hope, the javelin champion said: "I've currently lost nearly a stone so I'm actually really happy."

Although the celebrities have to eat basic rations, they can win more exciting food items like mutton if they come up trumps in the Bushtucker Trials.

Although Hollie was happy about losing weight, she told that there was a downside to it.

She said: "I also kind of feel bad as I feel like I've lost a bit of muscle mass, too."

Hollie also told how she has fond memories of her time at the castle.

Hollie said: "I miss being there. I woke up this morning and still thought I was actually there. Two weeks is a long time but I still wish I was there."

Following her departure, Hollie was moved to a swanky hotel by ITV, where she was able to enjoy delicious food and hot running water.

But the reality star, who is from Grimsby, Lincolnshire, revealed the first pleasurable thing she did at the hotel was take her hat off.

She continued: "There was the lovely food and they'd written 'welcome Hollie'.

"I saw chips and crisps and went straight for that. Food, flavour, salt!

"After that much chips [mimes a small amount] I was like, 'I feel sick.'

"There was fruit, chocolate and crisps and everything and I was like, 'Why can't I finish this?' My stomach has shrunk so much.

"The best way they've told us is to eat slowly and gradually throughout the day.

"But I can't wait to have fish and chips from Grimsby, and curry sauce and scraps and maybe a bettered sausage on the side."

West End superstar Ruthie Henshall was eliminated on Sunday, following Hollie's exit.
