Dec Donnelly has hit back at claims I’m A Celebrity is “fixed” following Sair Khan’s elimination from the jungle on Monday night.
Some viewers were left suspicious as they claimed Coronation Street star Sair had received a makeover before the public vote was revealed.
However, host Dec shut down the rumours and responded to viewers’ claims on Twitter following last night’s show.
A fan wrote: “@imacelebrity still not rigged? #SairKhan had done her hair and was ready to leave…. hmmmm something a bit fishy about these vote offs @antanddec @hollywills.”
Dec hit back: “Done her hair? You’re clutching at straws now! #ImACeleb.”

It came after viewers voiced their suspicions over Sair’s hair with one person tweeting during the episode: “Has Sair had her hair and makeup done before leaving the jungle?”
Another wrote: “How come Sair’s hair was straight when she was told she’s leaving…now it’s curly???”

A third added: “In the space of 30 seconds, Sair managed to say goodbye to everyone, curl her hair & get from the depths of a jungle to a bridge 60ft in the air… But it’s all ‘Live’ ladies & gents.”

However, others pointed out that Sair previously had her hair in plaits which would result in wavy hair.
One person said: “Sair had her hair in french plaits the night before which is why it was wavy. Jeez people need to get a grip.”

Another agreed: “I can tell you that all she did was put it in plaits whilst it was wet. Quick trick.”

Meanwhile, earlier in last night’s episode, Dec had poked fun at previous I’m A Celebrity ‘fix’ claims.
At the weekend, viewers claimed the show as rigged after they noticed Malique Thompson-Dwyer was already wearing his backpack before he was voted off.
During Monday night’s show, Holly Willoughby said to the camera: “Who will be leaving next?”
Dec turned to his co-host and quipped: “Well if the conspiracy theories are anything to go by, whoever’s got their backpack on.”
