Tom Arnold first to leave I'm A Celebrity jungle

AMERICAN actor Tom Arnold has been sent packing from the South African jungle.

The 57-year-old, best known for starring alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in True Lies, is the first contested ousted on season three of I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!

"Thank you for putting up with me,” Arnold told campmates as he was told the news by hosts Julia Morris and Chris Brown.

Arnold was one of 12 original celebrities to go into the jungle joining the likes of Casey Donovan, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Dane Swan, Nazeem Hussain and Lisa Curry.

Tonight's elimination was between Arnold, Kris Smith and Tziporah Malkah.

Earlier in tonight's show, Arnold spoke of his ongoing feud with US President Donald Trump and revealed he had been contacted by Hillary Clinton two days prior to the election.

"I had the Trump saying the 'N' word stuff and all the outtakes from Apprentice,” Arnold said.

"I would have put it out with their permission but by the time the election came round, Hillary Clinton called me two days before the election and said please release that, the weight of the free world is on your shoulders. I said, 'let me think about it, I would love to be a hero but I can't hurt these families'. By the way, I don't think it would work, I don't think people care. He already talked about sexually assaulting women and had 15 cases against him.”

Arnold last year revealed he had the footage, claiming he had video of President Trump saying "every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever”.
