Joe, who recently welcomed baby Rex with partner Stacey Solomon, said that spending time away from home would be too much to bear this year.

"Being a part of the I’m a Celebrity After Show has been everything I could have dreamed of and more," he wrote.

"But I’ve come to the decision that this year I’m going to have to leave my jungle family and stay home with my wonderful real family."
