A fourth penned: ‘Fred could of easily been Top 3… Think he ruined it with the whole dinner gate!’
Another added: ‘I had Fred down as a finalist but I think last couple of shows he didn’t do himself any favours. I still like him.’
However, some viewers also jumped to his defence as they argued there were other campmates who deserved to be eliminated rather than Fred.
One wrote: ‘Actually didn’t want Fred to go just yet. He’s just passionate,’ and a second said: ‘Aww I’m acc sad Fred left.’
Another added: ‘Sad to see Fred leave the camp tbh. There are others who have provided a lot less to the show.’
In recent days, the maître d’hôtel clashed with Josie as he hit out at her cooking skills while struggling to let go of his former camp chef role.

The chef was branded ‘controlling’ and ‘misogynistic’ after he clashed with Josie Gibson over her cooking skills
Fred then told Sam to ‘play with his toys’ on Tuesday as he argued with the group about who should take part in the trial, with fans slamming his ‘belittling comment’
This Morning host Josie, 38, decided to treat her campmates to the dish for lunch but First Dates star Fred, 51, was left exasperated when she started cooking despite only having one ingredient – beans.
Fred – who was the first camp chef before handing over his duties – insisted she needed eggs and flour as well and dashed off to the Bush Telegraph to vent his frustration.
After Josie decided to make bean fritters, Fred said in the Bush Telegraph: ‘She’s got no eggs, she’s got no flour, nothing but beans and oil… but I have stopped advising, I have stopped saying anything, I’m just going with the flow. Go on Josie, have fun.’
‘She’s just making it up as she goes along. If she just let me take her through it step-by-step clearly, we would be ok,’ he added.
However, he was accused of ‘misogyny’ by viewers after his rows with Josie and his behaviour towards his female co-stars.
Fred then told Sam to ‘play with his toys’ on Tuesday as he argued with the group about who should take part in the trial, with fans slamming his ‘belittling comment’.
After the camp agreed that volunteer Marvin Humes would do the latest challenge, Fred, Sam, Tony Bellew and Nick Pickard offered to accompany him.
‘I’m easy, whatever it takes, I’m up for it, I don’t mind,’ Tony said, while Nick added: ‘I’m also very happy to take one for the team. No problem at all.’
Fred chimed in: ‘I’ll go with Marvin, just because why not. I’m ready to go.’
‘I’m happy to go as well,’ Sam said. ‘Happy to do it and you know, want to bring some stars back for the team.
‘I think Marv should definitely be going because you haven’t done one yet and I know you are superman. And Fred, if you want to do it…’
Fred has had a drama-filled time in the jungle after clashing with Nigel Farage over Brexit, rowing with Josie Gibson about the cooking and being confronted by Nella in the ‘Dadgate’ row
He lost out to Danielle Harold in the public vote after they both came in the bottom two in the latest elimination
Fred butted in: ‘Don’t worry, I’m going. You can carry on playing with your toys, we’ll do the men’s stuff. I’m going with Marvin, I’ve already decided.’
Fans at home slammed Fred’s behaviour as they claimed that the TV personality needed to ‘leave Sam alone’.
Fred became the third star to leave the camp after Nella Rose was eliminated on Monday, while jockey Frankie Dettori was the first to go home in the public vote.
Jamie Lynn Spears and Grace Dent both previously exited the jungle after separately quitting on medical grounds, with just seven campmates now remaining.
After his eviction, Fred joined Ant and Dec to look back on his time in the jungle and spoke about his struggle to let go of control in the kitchen and rows with Josie.
Doubling down on his views after his elimination, Fred said: ‘[Josie] doesn’t know what she does in the kitchen, she makes it up as she goes along.’
‘You really need the calories, and you’ve got to find them whenever you can. I think we missed out on quiet a few meals [by not recycling ingredients],’ he added.
When asked why he didn’t get involved as much with Sam and Nick’s cooking, he said they were a ‘dream’ and there was ‘no need’ for him to do so.
Asked how he found the tricky challenges on the show, Fred insisted he had been vigorously training for his stint in the jungle and told how he found most of it ‘easy’.
‘I found it quiet easy because I prepared myself mentally, I was really thinking… the challenges I found it quite easy actually because I was quite focused,’ he said.
‘The physical training helps you with the mental side of things, because it’s about the focus, and when you do that repeatedly, you get into that mindset and you keep going.’
When asked about his up-and-down relationship with Nigel Farage in the camp, Fred insisted their time together hadn’t swayed him on their political differences.
Leaving the camp, Fred was then sweetly reunited with Fruitcake as she ran towards him and the pair shared a close embrace and a kiss

After his eviction, Fred joined Ant and Dec and spoke about his struggle to let go of control in the kitchen – where he doubled down on his comments about Josie
He said: ‘It was great in the camp because I’m a do-er and Nigel is a do-er… but there is a side of Nigel Farage that I won’t and will never connect with.’
The pair got into a fierce debate over Brexit in a recent episode which saw Fred accuse the former UKIP leader of ‘talking b*******’.
Upon his exit, Fred also spoke about how he tried to just live in the moment during his time on the show, rather than dwelling on missing his fiancée Fruitcake.
He said: ‘I was really living in the moment, I did not think about home, I did not think about work… I just ploughed through.’
Leaving the camp, Fred was then sweetly reunited with Fruitcake as she ran towards him and the pair shared a close embrace, before smiling on the bridge together.
Fred’s elimination came after fans accused him of ‘controlling’ behaviour in Tuesday’s episode as Sam and Nick took the reins as camp chefs.
Fred was originally camp chef and since having to relinquish his responsibility to others, he has become increasingly irate and been branded ‘controlling’ by viewers.
It even saw him become embroiled in a ‘sexism’ row after many watching accused him of being ‘misogynistic’ towards presenter Josie, 38, while she made dinner.
The chores were decided by them as follows: camp chefs: Sam and Nick, washing up: Tony and Marvin, camp water and dunny: Fred and Marvin while Nigel and Fred were on camp maintenance.
Seeing their choices Sam reacted excitedly: ‘No way!’
In the Bush Telegraph Sam later said: ‘I’ll be like the clown in the kitchen so Nick can get on and do what he needs and I’ll distract Fred.
‘But also, I’m incredibly nervous. I’m not a very good cook.’
Nigel then said in the Bush Telegraph: ‘I think that Nick is going to be on the front line of this with Sam as sous chef. What will be interesting is to watch how Fred comments on Sam’s food preparation.’
When asked why he didn’t get involved as much with Sam Thompson and Nick Pickard’s cooking, he said they were a ‘dream’ and there was ‘no need’ for him to do so

Nick in Bush Telegraph later commented: ‘I do like a bit of cooking, but after the exploits of the last couple of evenings of Fred and Josie, I’m a little bit nervous.
‘Fred’s bound to start barking at us now. Hopefully he’ll give us a bit of guidance and then leave us alone.’
It comes after Nella was eliminated from the camp on Monday and held her hands to her mouth in shock and appeared totally floored by the news.
The influencer’s time in the jungle was a controversial one after her numerous rows with Nigel Farage and Fred Siriex led to 2,000 Ofcom complaints.
Despite the tensions Nella said a fond farewell to all her campmates as Tony Bellow told her: ‘You are a winner, you’ve done amazing.’
She came in the bottom two alongside Marvin Humes and viewers were left in shock on Monday as he narrowly avoided being eliminated.
Viewers at home were in disbelief that Marvin had ended up in the bottom two of the public vote, thinking that he would’ve been safe over other campmates.
One person took to Twitter to ask: ‘Someone explain why Marvin was in the bottom 2’ while another echoed: ‘WHY WAS MARVIN IN THE BOTTOM TWO??????’
A third fan wrote: ‘Get Marvin some more screen time. Can’t believe he was in the bottom two! He’s such a good guy’.
Someone else agreed, tweeting: ‘what do you mean ‘marvin…. it might be you’… and still not nigel??? gave two of my votes to marvin. he cant leave yet.. he needs to be in the final with sam’.

A fifth added: ‘Omg the stress I felt when Marvin nearly went’ while a sixth said: ‘Whoa how was it nearly Marvin?!!! No way can he leave early at all!’
A seventh person begged: ‘pls can everyone vote for Marvin I can’t deal with him going home yet pls idk how he was in the bottom two’.
While another said: ‘Nigel was safe but it might’ve been Marvin?!’ and a ninth wrote: ‘WHY HAVE YOU GOT MARVIN IN THE BOTTOM TWO??? OVER FRED??? OVER NIGEL???’
And another admitted: ‘heart actually dropped when they said it may have been marvin, that man deserves to stay to the end’.
After her exit, Nella joined hosts Ant & Dec where she was greeted with a glass of orangeade rather than the usual champagne.
Nella previously made headlines after lashing out at Fred, 51, for saying he could ‘be her father’ because of their 25-year age gap, claiming it was disrespectful because hours earlier she had told the campmates that she had lost both her parents.
Recalling the incident she said: ‘I just feel that in the middle of an argument or a disagreement, you shouldn’t bring up personal, sensitive topics, and I feel that in the middle of a disagreement, he brought up a sensitive topic.
‘I didn’t understand why he would do that to somebody that he doesn’t know [well].’
Nella’s time in the jungle has been a controversial one after her numerous rows with nemesis Nigel Farage (pictured) and Fred Siriex led to 2,000 Ofcom complaints
When Dec then asked if maybe the uproar was just a ‘misunderstanding’ Nella replied: ‘It could have been! But things are so heightened in the jungle that everything is a big thing.’
She also came to blows with former Brexit Leader Nigel Farage over the subject of immigration and racism.
After the hosts showed clips of the clashes Nella exclaimed: ‘Oh my god, you used everything. I am not usually put in situations where people don’t have opinions in the same walk of life.’
‘So when they have different mindsets, and I hear them, I’m shocked because I’m not used to hearing people think like this. So automatically, you have to say something about it because what they’ve said to me it’s kind of shocking sometimes. But it is what it is.’
