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.

I'm A Celebrity continues on ITV.

Maynard appeared on Tuesday night's show but presenters Ant and Dec confirmed his removal halfway through the programme, telling viewers they could not vote for him in Wednesday's bushtucker trial.

Then yesterday things worsened for the 22-year-old when nude photos, allegedly of Jack, were leaked online.

The self-proclaimed Youtube sensation and brother of singer Conor Maynard has been paired with I'm A Celeb's Georgia Toffolo.

On Monday, a picture with a caption detailing Brown's life of repeated rape in the sex-trafficking went viral. This is completely insane #freecyntoiabrown ", while Bella Thorne tweeted: "I f**king hate our system.

They said Maynard agreed with the decision which was "made by his representatives and ITV".

As a result, a decision was made to remove him so that he was made aware of the allegations.

The tweets, allegedly written by Maynard, contain the racist N word, as well as referring to people as "retards".

But now shocking tweets posted from Jack's account between 2011 and 2013 have been unearthed.

Jack's publicist said he was "ashamed" of his comments.

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

In a response to the messages earlier this week, a representative for Jack said: "Jack is ashamed of these tweets, many were deleted a long time ago and were sent in response to a neighbour who was bullying him.

He would never use that language now and realises that, as someone who was bullied himself, this kind of retaliatory, insulting language is completely unacceptable".

The 22-year-old is one of 10 contestants taking part in the programme, which started on Sunday.

Jack has now made a decision to part ways from the jungle show in a shock first exit.

Meanwhile, Maynard is proving to be a little bit of a wimp in the jungle, losing the light challenge last night alongside Vanessa White and Shappi Khorsandi after a leaf touched him.
