What are I’m A Celebrity viewers saying about AJ Pritchard?

A number of those watching at home have said they don’t think AJ is getting as much air time as some of his campmates, who include presenter Vernon Kay, Corrie’s Beverley Callard and ex EastEnder Shane Richie.

During last night’s (Tuesday, November 17) episode, AJ joined in with a rather grim conversation about underwear.

DJ Jordan North admitted he hadn’t changed his underwear in three days – not since he arrived at the castle.

His campmates thought it was disgusting so he turned to some of the other gents to ask them if they too had neglected to change their undies.

When Jordan asked AJ, the ballroom dancer immediately admitted that he was still wearing the same pair he arrived in.

Viewers have called for AJ to get more screen time, with some wondering where he has been for most of the series so far.

Calls for AJ Pritchard to get more screen time on I’m A Celeb

One said: “Need more AJ on screen #ImACeleb!”

Another joked, alongside a meme of someone squinting: “Me trying to find AJ…”

A third demanded: “Someone give AJ some screen time.”

Does AJ just not exist or something?

“Petition starting for AJ to get more screen time,” said a fourth.

Someone else tweeted: “Actually forgot AJ was still there.”

“MISSING: Where is AJ Pritchard?” joked a sixth.

Another quipped: “Does AJ just not exist or something?”

What happened in last night’s I’m A Celebrity?

During Tuesday’s episode, viewers were treated – or subjected – to their first eating trial of the series.

Frights of the Round Table saw Jordan, Vernon and Beverley chow down on some truly horrific fare.

Beverley, who is a vegan, had to much a number of fermented dishes, including tofu and plums.

Jordan, meanwhile, had to force himself to eat, among other things, a sheep’s penis, an eyeball and fermented fish liquid, which he downed with the help of a drinking song chanted by his campmates.

Vernon didn’t get off lightly either. The former Family Fortunes star – who is married to Strictly Come Dancing‘s Tess Daly – gagged while eating a deer’s testicle, which burst as he bit down onto it.

The end of last night’s episode revealed that two new stars are coming onto the show – singer Russell Watson and stage star Ruthie Henshall.

– I’m A Celebrity continues tonight (Wednesday, November 18) at 9pm on ITV
