James said: "If Jack has been removed from the show because of what he put on twitter 5 year ago I'm totally gutted for him".
While many viewers have called for ITV to reinstate Jack on the show, others have begun trying to guess who might replace him, with one person in particular seeming to be a fan-frontrunner for the gig.
His publicist added it was "only fair" Maynard should leave the show to have the right to "defend himself" against the allegations.
The self-proclaimed Youtube sensation and brother of singer Conor Maynard has been paired with I'm A Celeb's Georgia Toffolo.
Jack previously came under fire on Sunday after it was revealed he had repeatedly used the n-word and homophobic slurs in historic tweets - after which his representatives insisted he was "ashamed".
After he was forced to apologise for homophobic and racists tweets sent historically from his Twitter account, now apparently nude pictures reportedly of the star, have been leaked onto the internet.
Celebrities have come to YouTube star Jack Maynard's defence after he quit I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
EX-CAMPCATE Jack has left the camp
The Sun alleges that Jack posted photos of people with facial deformities with comments such as "in his prime" and 'Ahahahaha!
"He would never use that language now and realises this kind of retaliatory, inflammatory, insulting language is completely unacceptable".
In another Tweet, posted in June 2011, Jack said: "At alices with my n****s!".
The Sunreported that one of the X-rated images, taken on Snapchat, shows the 22-year-old vlogger smiling and wearing only a hat in a bedroom, while giving the thumbs up.
A spokesperson for Jack confirmed he left the show, before explaining the controversial decision.
Meanwhile, Maynard is proving to be a little bit of a wimp in the jungle, losing the light challenge last night alongside Vanessa White and Shappi Khorsandi after a leaf touched him.
