Shane Warne's surprise elimination from I'm A Celebrity

SPIN King Shane Warne made an unexpected exit from I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! tonight.

The former cricketer was tipped by many, including recent evictee Val Lehman, to take out the show's $100,000 grand prize for charity thanks to his large support network including British rock band Coldplay.

Online bookmaker SportsBet had him at $5 odds to go, behind Anthony Callea and Laurina Fleure.

It was a dramatic day for the father-of-three, who was brought to tears when he faced his crippling phobia of spiders.

Warnie and the other four celebrities were offered chocolate and ice cream spiders in exchange for holding a venomous baboon tarantula, named Britney, in their hand for 30 seconds.

Clearly shocked to hear his name, Warne said he was disappointed to miss out on Sunday's grand final.

The four celebrities now left on the show are Brendan Fevola, "The Chief" Paul Harragon, Laurina Fleure and Anthony Callea.

Warne nominated Fevola and Callea to compete in the last tucker trial of the season tomorrow.
