Caitlyn Jenner – formerly Kardashian’s stepfather Bruce Jenner before her transition to become a woman – was the only contestant on the jungle reality show who had no friends or family there to greet her when she was voted off the show. This sparked speculation from viewers that her family had snubbed her.
Kasdashian spoke out on Twitter saying: “NO ONE from I’m A Celeb even reached out and asked for letters, appearances or anything from any Kardashians or Jenners.”
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star backed comments by her stepbrother Brandon Jenner, who told a fan on Instagram: “Honestly, nobody reached out to set it up. I think it might have been a ‘storyline’ the producers wanted to fabricate in order to get more empathy for Caitlyn. That’s how that kind of TV works.”
The 70-year-old former Olympic athlete was the seventh celebrity to be voted out of the ITV show.
During her time in the camp when the other celebrities received messages and photos from their family, Jenner was given a note presumed to be from her partner and housemate Sophia Hutchins and a picture of her dogs.
The note read: "You are doing such an amazing job in the jungle. Show these Brits that American Olympian endurance.
"The dogs and I miss you so much, we decorated the house but Baxter tore the lights off the trees already so it’s waiting for you to fix it."
On leaving the jungle, Jenner said: “Over the last three weeks, I've met some of the greatest people. There wasn't one person who was causing any trouble. I can't believe I made it all the way to three weeks and so it was great. I hate to leave them behind but I'm ready to get out.”
On her very first night in the jungle Jenner broke down in tears and told the Bush Telegraph she was already thinking about quitting.
She said: “I’m 70 years old now, and is being in here the right way to use my time? Should I be home with my kids, playing with the grandchildren?”
