I’m A Celeb fans left confused over baffling moment in last night’s episode

Many fans had just one question about Wednesday's show

| Updated:

We all know by now that Jack Maynard’s left I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The YouTuber departed the jungle on Tuesday, just days after arriving… so viewers of Wednesday’s episode were rather baffled to see him still included in the opening titles.

While no mention was made of Jack, 22, throughout the episode, he appeared as usual in the glitzy title sequence that opened the episode.

Naturally fans were a tad puzzled.

Other fans wondered if his inclusion in the opening titles meant he would appear at some stage during the episode.

Especially after Ant & Dec teased a surprise….

However, that wasn’t to be the case as the surprise turned out to be introducing new arrivals Iain Lee and Kezia Dugdale.

Meanwhile, other viewers were baffled by the fact Jack had just vanished from camp.

The moment campmates were informed of Jack’s exit was not aired during the episode, leaving fans wondering how everyone had reacted.

And fans hoping to see Jack in the Bush Telegraph one last time explaining his decision to leave were also disappointed.

Ant & Dec announced on Tuesday night’s show that Jack had left the show due to circumstances beyond camp.

No further info was given on air but a rep for the vlogger later released a statement saying Jack’s managers and ITV had made a joint decision to remove him from the jungle so he could defend himself against recent tabloid stories.

He was forced to apologise last week after being accused of sending homophobic and racist tweets back in 2012.

And overnight he faced further accusations of sending in appropriate messages to a teenage fan when he was 16 – he’s yet to respond to that allegation.

His rep said: “In the last few days Jack has been the subject of a succession of media stories which, given his position as a contestant on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here – filmed in the Australian jungle, with no contact with the outside world, he has been unable to respond to.

“Since it is only fair that everyone should be aware of any allegations made against them and should also have the right to defend themselves, it was agreed that it would be better to bring him out of the show.

“Jack agrees with this decision which was made by his representatives and ITV and thanks everyone who has supported him in the show this far.”

I’m A Celebrity continues 9pm on ITV.
