Lucy Benjamin was the first person voted off 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' last night (23.11.09).

The former 'Eastenders' actress insisted she didn't mind losing out in the public vote to chef Gino D'Acampo or former pin up Sam Fox because it meant she could see her daughter Bessie, two.

She said: "I have mixed emotions. It's not great to be the first one out, but it's a win-win situation because I get to see my bubba. Someone had to go first, it's fine."

When quizzed about her highest and lowest points on the show, Lucy, 39, singled out her skydive into camp - despite being terrified before the jump - as the best moment, but admitted she hadn't enjoyed the food.

She said: "The skydive, that was just the most amazing experience I've ever gone through. I just can't explain it.

"We ate rat. That's really, really bad isn't it. We didn't know if we were going to be starving hungry, so we had to stock up on our supplies."
