I’m A Celebrity fans beg ITV to bring in Adam Woodyatt and Simon Gregson to spice up series

When will they turn up in Gwrych Castle?

I’m A Celebrity 2021 viewers are desperate for soap legends Adam Woodyatt and Simon Gregson to be on their screens ASAP.

Both EastEnders veteran Adam, 53, and Corrie star Simon, 47, were linked with the series ahead of time.

But after two nights of programming of the 2021 series, many fans watching at home are wondering where the pair are.

I’m A Celebrity 2021: Where are Adam Woodyatt and Simon Gregson?

According to reports, Adam and Simon are likely to show up as latecomers – or ‘wildcard’ entrants – to the show.

Famous faces previously tipped to be part of the I’m A Celebrity line up only to appear later in the series include Noel Edmonds and Vicky Pattison.

Others such as Vic Reeves and Christopher Biggins have also joined in part way through.

So even though the soap faves haven’t been in the series from the outset, fan needn’t worry they won’t appear at all.

When will Adam Woodyatt and Simon Gregson be in I’m A Celebrity 2021?

However, while it seems highly unlikely that Adam Woodyatt and Simon Gregson won’t eventually be part of I’m A Celebrity 2021, it is not clear when they may arrive.

The TV icons, known for playing Ian Beale and Steve McDonald respectively, could turn up at Gwrych Castle at any point.

However, as yet, there have not been any tantalising hints which make it dead set they are on their way.

Nonetheless, some fans are getting restless over their absence – and want the pair involved pronto to stir matters up in the camp.

What have fans said?

Some viewers clearly feel the actors have plenty to contribute to the current I’m A Celebrity 2021 cast.

“Where’s Ian Beale and Steve McDonald? #ImACeleb,” one person tweeted during Monday night’s show.

A slightly more impatient Twitter user remarked: “I’m still waiting for Steve McDonald and Ian Beale #ImACeleb.”

And another testy fan added: “So will Ian Beale and Steve McDonald be entering tomorrow? #ImACeleb.”

Hoping Ian Beale and Steve off Corrie get sent in to liven things up a bit.

Elsewhere on Twitter, during a discussion about the “weak” line up, another social media user urged fellow fans: “Don’t give up on this cast, believe in Ian Beale and Steve McDonald #ImACeleb.”

But others already seemed to have made up their minds – and they’re looking for contributions from Adam and Simon to perk things up.

“I’m A Celebrity a bit flat this year,” one person complained.

“Need to get Ian Beale and Steve McDonald in there ASAP #ImACeleb.”

And another echoed that thought: “Hoping Ian Beale and Steve off Corrie get sent in to liven things up a bit #ImACeleb.”

I’m A Celebrity continues tonight, Tuesday November 23, on ITV at 9.15pm.
