Im A Celeb branded a fix as some ITV campers are being completely ignored

Fans of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! have been left confused and upset at the realisation that some of their favourite contestants seem to be fading into the background.

Viewers noticed that some of the Gwrych castle campmates were shown on screen for considerably less time than their co-stars, including The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge and Olympic diver Matty Lee.

Fans noticed a trend emerging as soap stars like Simon Gregson and Adam Woodyatt appear to receive more air time than any other contestant, possibly due to the hefty sign up fees that the actors were reportedly paid to take part in this year’s series.

There is also a common theory that the more screen time a contestant gets, the more public votes they are likely to win as viewers begin to relate to and back the celebrity.

One Twitter user took to the social media website to voice their opinion on the matter: “Is it me or is Matty just getting ignored?"

Another fan swooned over the Olympic diver: “Poor Matty and his screen time. We don't even get a waterfall shower of him. Waste of abs."

Other fans have also realised that the same celebrities seem to be put forward for the bushtucker trials: "Literally the same people doing trial after trial – Boring, repetitive, annoying.”

"The fact Simon has been shown more this episode than Louise, Matty and Frankie have been all season,” said an angry viewer.

"Frankie, Matty, Danny (apart from one trial) really haven't done much at all," wrote another.

This is not the first time that the programme has been accused of setting particular contestants up for the win.

Back in November, fans claimed that Emmerdale’s Danny Miller was taking up the most screen time out of all the contestants and that he was given an easy ride during an early trial.

Snoochie Shy tried every dish with a brave face but Danny vomited with almost every bite, a tactic that some people assume makes the scene more memorable and therefore imprints on the viewers mind.

An upset fan tweeted: “That eating trial was a fix! The meal wheel stopped and then moved backwards for Danny so he didn't have to do it, and then he didn't keep all the meals down either, and he had the easier meal options.”

Another wrote: “Danny didn’t deserve to win that trial. Sorry but there did appear to be unfair bias in Danny’s favour.”
