In the video on YouTube Jack Maynard explains: “I’m so sorry to anyone I offended, anyone I upset anyone I made feel uncomfortable.

“Social media has led to being my job, my work is this, online, and everything that comes with it. I’ve messed up. I’ve been really stupid in the past. 

“I tweeted some bad things, some horrible things, some pretty disgusting things that I’m ashamed of. Straight up ashamed of.”

He continues: “I was young, I was stupid, I was carless and I wasn’t thinking. I had just left school and I was stupid, Having arguments with people over Twitter. This was before I had any kind of a following.”

Jack continued to explain he found it hard “growing up over social media”, telling his followers: “Don’t ever put anything online that you wouldn’t say to your mum.”

The 22 year old added: “Don’t say anything online that you wouldn’t want on a t-shirt. I didn’t think like that at the time and I said some careless things.

“I’ve done a lot of growing up since then. I was young, stupid and it’s not an excuse whatsoever.”

Jack left the jungle at the start of this week, after it was claimed he sent inappropriate messages to a 14-year-old girl when he was 17 years old and unaware of her age.

In screenshots obtained by The Mirror, the message claimed to be from Jack Maynard reads: “Your boobs are so nice!” and called her “a bore” when she declined to send the photos.
