It Looks Like Bernard Tomic Will Be Bailing Out Of The "I'm A Celeb" Jungle After Just Two Days

"There is no point in me being here"

It Looks Like Bernard Tomic Will Be Bailing Out Of The "I'm A Celeb" Jungle After Just Two Days I'm A Celebrity/ TEN

After a solid two days in the South African jungle, tennis champ Bernard Tomic is already set to walk away from I'm A Celeb, Get Me Out Of Here

After nearly vomiting from facing his fear of heights with the 'Bridge Too Far' challenge - where the 25-year-old was suspended over a cliff - and then again when he was forced to wear glasses that flipped his vision upside down, Bernard has said he's had enough of roughin' it. 


“I just wasn’t expecting all of this, you know. I am just not coping well. This is not the real world," he said.

“This is the jungle. This is so different. Not what I expected. I don’t think I can do it. I think it is best if I go.

“There is no point in me being here anymore and wasting unnecessary time for myself."


Although, the tennis champion seemed hell bent on his decision of jumping ship, fellow contestant Anthony Mundine convinced him to at least sleep on the decision.

"We would love you to stay,” Mundine said.

It wasn't the first time that day that Tomic had been forced to talk about quitting, though; earlier, he was grilled by former AFL star Josh Gibson who asked the much-maligned tennis player if he would be "honestly happy" if he retired now.

"No," Tomic replied, although he quickly claimed that his career could have been very different.

"If I had of played back 10 years ago, I would've been probably top three in the world," he continued, adding that he "could have been top five and won some slams."

Gibson, though, was having none of it. "Exactly. Could have, would have, should have," he bit back.


If Tomic does follow through with his threat to quit the jungle, he'd be the first star to do so since the show's inception in 2015.
