I’m A Celebrity viewers brand new series’ line-up ‘worst ever’

Hard to top last year's

ITV viewers have branded the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! line-up “disappointing” and accused the show of “scraping the barrel” for the camp this year.

After watching the opening episode of the new series, which aired last night (17.11.19), some viewers on Twitter even said they thought it was the “worst line-up ever”.

Other admitted they thought ITV would have trouble topping the 2018 line-up, which included The Chase’s Anne Hegerty, football manager Harry Redknapp and new Extra Camp host Emily Atack.

One wrote on Twitter: “This has to be the worst #ImACeleb line-up, #scrapingthebarell, apart from #ianwright.”

Another said: “Has to be said, this is a pretty poor line-up #ImACeleb.”

A third tweeted: “Apart from Haskell, Wright and possibly Kate Garraway, it’s the worst line up ever.”

Seriously the worst line-up of so-called celebs I’ve ever seen.

Someone else wrote: “Best line-up ever? No! You will never beat last year’s!

“The best line-up is still last year’s #ImACeleb,” echoed a fifth.

“Seriously the worst line-up of so-called celebs I’ve ever seen,” tweeted another, who added: “Truly disappointed! #ImACeleb.”

But not everyone was disappointed with this year’s celebrities.

“I absolutely loved the first show last night,” tweeted one fan, adding, “Love love love this year’s line-up, hurry up tonight’s episode #ImACeleb.”

“Loving the show so far @antanddec, it’s going to be an amazing series and the line-up is brilliant this year as well xx.”


The first episode of the new series saw campmates Caitlyn Jenner and Kate Garraway voted to do the first bushtucker trial.

American reality star Caitlyn and Good Morning Britain presenter Kate were both selected to compete in the trial, Bugged Off, which will see them locked in a box full of nasties.

Viewers at home were divided over the choice, with some slamming it as ‘predictable’ and others admitting they can’t wait to see the women compete, calling it the perfect pairing!
