Spencer Matthews has yet something to reveal, and that is his steroid addiction. He claimed as it is the reason for his quit in “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.”.
According to the Mirror, the star from Made in Chelsea spoke about Spencer’s decision, and added the explanation behind his drug addiction which was kept secret.
Matthew Spencer indeed has no ability to overcome his addiction before entering the jungle, and the producers of the show immediately informed him to leave for this can cause detrimental effects on his well-being and health. Especially, if decided to stay in Australia.
For more, he wrote the following statement:
“Why did I leave I’m a Celebrity after just three days? The simple answer is that I screwed up, and have some explaining to do. Shortly after I arrived in Australia I told the production team that I was taking a steroid-based medication that had begun some weeks ago. When I started taking this programme of pills it was in preparation for a charity boxing match which, ironically, never took place.
Vanity, I suppose, had been the reason for wanting to bulk up a bit for the fight. I had intended to come off the pills gradually, but there was no time to do this before I reached the jungle. My admission to the production team that I was still taking these pills led to the conclusion that it would be unsafe for me to stay in the jungle – a decision which I found extremely hard to stomach. I pushed back but ultimately the show’s duty of care prevailed and bags had to be packed.
Taking these pills was a serious error of judgement, which I hugely regret. I have disappointed my family, friends and fans and would like to apologise. I would like to thank ITV for the opportunity and their support, they’re a class act. I loved every minute of being in the jungle and wish the remaining contestants the best of luck. Hoping for another shot at it someday.”
It was then confirmed by the show’s presenter Dec and Ant, as well as ITV about the star’s exit from I’m a Celebrity on Friday. The star’s addiction was not revealed by his own reasons for the addiction. However, his bravery indeed needs a credit in spite of him making a wrong life decision.
