The Coronation Street star, who faced a host of nasty critters and made it into the final four, will be missing from the ITV soap because filming is done weeks in advance.

That means lovable Fizz Stape will be absent from the cobbles, but she is taking a trip somewhere slightly closer to home than the Australian jungle.

During next Monday's episode, Fiz will decide to spend Christmas away from the rest of her family to look after her mum.

Fiz will set off to be by Cilla's side in Wolverhampton, which is a far cry from the luxurious Versace Hotel where Jennie is currently staying.

To say goodbye to Fiz, Hope and Ruby put on a touching nativity scene and sing 'Little Donkey' while dressed up as shepherds.

Tyrone also surprises her with an early Christmas dinner so that she doesn't feel guilty about missing the actual day.

Jennie will be absent from screens over Christmas but will return to the cobbles in a dramatic new storyline in the New Year.

She became the eighth celebrity to leave the jungle on Saturday night after making it to the final four.

The Corrie star departed the camp and was welcomed into the studio with "a glass of fizz for Fizz".

Speaking to Ant and Dec, she said: "It's been amazing. We were talking about one last day and those guys down there, I’m just going to miss them so much."

Jennie admitted that she hadn't listened to advice given by her Corrie co-stars who have entered the jungle before, including Anthony Cotton.

"'A' I didn’t listen and 'B' they lie. It's like giving birth. It's like a birth story. Nobody tells you what actually happens."

Jennie said she was most looking forward to, firstly having a glass of champers, and then seeing her husband and son.

She said: "I can't wait to see my boys."

She was then allowed to exit the jungle, but screamed as the fireworks went off under the bridge.

* Coronation Street continues on Wednesday at 7.30pm
