ITV, the network hosting the show, now faces inquiries regarding the welfare of stars on its shows. The sudden exit of Spears, who was the second celebrity to quit the Australian jungle after Grace Dent, has raised questions about the rigorous background checks conducted before the commencement of the show and the ability of stars to handle the grueling conditions.

A Pattern of Departures

This is not the first time Spears has left a TV show on medical grounds. She previously exited the show 'Special Forces World's Toughest Test' and was also eliminated from 'Dancing With The Stars'.
