Just hours after the announcement, the MasterChef star was spotted at Brisbane Airport boarding a flight back to the United Kingdom.
According to MailOnline, the 50-year-old refused to speak to press at the airport and kept her head down as she checked in for her flight home.
Grace’s departure from the show was confirmed after viewers expressed concern for the restaurant critic, claiming she looked “unwell” on-screen.

A source has since told MailOnline that Grace’s departure was a mutual decision between her and show bosses, who intervened after seeing her visibly deteriorate while in camp.

The insider said: “Grace decided to leave the jungle soon after it was announced that she would be doing the latest bushtucker trial.”
“Knowing that she would be facing another tough challenge was the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
“It was mutually agreed upon that she would stand down from the competition, it was clear that she wasn’t being herself, she had lost all energy when usually she’s witty and fun to be around.”

“ITV’s duty of care and welfare teams had stepped in, and rightly so,” the insider continued.
“She had struggled since living in the camp with less amenities, the weather this year has been particularly miserable and as a restaurant critic, not eating well proved to be harder than she could have ever imagined.”
“Grace is looking forward to seeing her loved ones now and after a few days of rest and recovery will be fine.”

On Sunday night, it was revealed that Grace and her campmate Josie Gibson were set to take on Monday night’s bushtucker trial Down the Tubes.
Following her shock exit, EastEnders actress Danielle Harold will step in to take on the trial.
The soap star received was the third most-voted for celebrity.
