She was roundly booed by the crowd as she left the house in the Channel 5 show.
After her exit was confirmed she said: "I'm so relieved. I have post traumatic shock. I'm traumatised.
"They all eat so much. It was so dirty, and I felt very much an outsider.
"But I think they started to warm to me a little bit over the last couple of days."
When asked about her reaction to the public saving her from eviction three times during the show, she replied: "I just assumed everyone hates me, so that's something."
She said it was difficult to make herself heard inside the house.
"I was going to try to be more out-going than I normally am because I'm very shy and very introverted," she explained.
"But with them you can't get a word in edgeways. They are so noisy."
But the journalist admitted that she left the house with positive feelings towards her fellow contestants.
She said: "There's a lot more depth to them than you would just think from seeing them on television and they're all really nice people."
