Marc Bannerman is not going to be there to greet his jungle companion Cerys Matthews when she exits the camp.
Despite writing her a love letter over the weekend in which he said he would fly to Australia to see the singer evicted, the ex-EASTENDERS star has denied ITV's offer to fly him back.
Speaking to the Sun, an ITV insider said: "He doesnt want to do it - despite what he promised Cerys. Its going to break her heart as shes been so looking forward to seeing him again.
"And its a real shame for the viewers because they will have wanted to see the emotional reunion."
According to ITV the actor will record a video message to be played when Cerys is evicted.
Meanwhile, the I'm a celebrity camp was thrown into turmoil when a lethal black funnel web spider was found under Janice Dickinson's bed.
