ASH Pollard has cooked her final meal of beans and rice in the South African jungle.

The former My Kitchen Rules contestant has been sent packing from the I'm A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! camp after lasting five-and-a-half weeks on the Channel Ten reality show.

"Spaghetti bolognaise," Pollard squealed, realising she will be able to eat her first proper meal outside the jungle.

"I am so disappointed but I am so happy. It is was my pleasure guys, best of luck."

Given her history with food, Pollard, 31, quickly became the resident camp cook.

Pollard's departure leaves six celebrities remaining in the jungle ahead of the grand final on Monday night.

Each contestant is competing with the aim of securing $100,000 for their chosen charity with Pollard raising awareness for Beyond Blue.

"You'd be an idiot if you were going on any reality TV show and said I'm not here to win it," Pollard told News Corp Australia before the show launched on January 29.

"You go on reality shows to win. I am not going on to win for me, I am going on to win for the charity I've nominated, Beyond Blue, and I'm dedicating the win if I do win to my uncle who sadly committed suicide. For me this is a personal thing, I'm no just choosing it because it is popular. I am choosing Beyond Blue because I want to get the word out that depression and anxiety is a real thing and people are struggling to be able to deal with it by themselves and people need help."
