I’m A Celebrity fans are all saying the same thing about Simon Gregson as he arrives in camp

Simon Gregson entered the I'm A Celebrity camp last night

ITV viewers are all saying the same thing about Simon Gregson, the newest recruit to join the I’m A Celebrity camp.

Simon is, of course, best known for playing Coronation Street‘s Steve McDonald.

Now I’m A Celebrity fans think there’s a blurred line where Steve ends and Simon begins.

What did I’m A Celebrity fans say about Simon Gregson?

Amused viewers took to social media to share their thoughts as Simon arrived in camp along with EastEnders star Adam Woodyatt.

“Simon Gregson is just like his character Steve in #Corrie, he doesn’t even need to act lol,” one fan tweeted, adding the crying with laughter emoji.

Someone else agreed, saying: “Why is Simon literally Steve McDonald? I love it!!”

A third writes: “Simon is literally his character Steve in real life.”

And a fourth says: “I love Simon. He really is like Steve.”

Another fan had a good suggestion to avoid confusion: “Are we just gonna be calling Simon and Adam, Steve McDonald and Ian Beale for the rest of the series then yeah? Are we all in agreement?”

How long has Simon been on Corrie?

Simon, 47, has played Steve for a huge 31 years so it’s unsurprising that there’s some confusion.

Simon and Adam, who plays Ian Beale in EastEnders, entered camp last night (November 25). But not before completing a trial, The Scare Fair.

The soap stalwarts had to face – literally – some castle critters but won a brilliant 11 out of 12 stars, meaning lots of food for their new campmates.

Why are Adam and Simon lords?

The actors were rewarded by being made Lords of the Castle.

They have Lord clothing, the use of the Lords’ chairs and even a Lords’ bed to share.

Simon and Adam’s Lord status also mean they’re exempt from any camp chores.

I’m A Celebrity fans adore the two newbies and have even branded them the “greatest addition to the show ever”.

One of the funniest moments was when Adam suggested to Simon that they face away from each other in bed.

Simon responded saying: “I think that’s a good idea. Mind you, you probably won’t want me to.”

The new additions to camp will hopefully raise the flagging spirits of the original celebrities. Morale has been low following the shock departure of Richard Madeley.

The Good Morning Britain host was forced to pull out after receiving hospital treatment in the early hours of Thursday morning.

I’m A Celebrity continues tonight at 9pm on ITV. You can catch up on I’m A Celebrity on ITV Hub.
