So far, four campmates have been booted out of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and viewers think it’s odd that three of them have been soap stars.
Hollyoaks’ Malique Thompson-Dwyer was the first soap actor to go, followed by Coronation Street actress Sair Khan and last night’s episode saw former EastEnders star Rita Simons, 41, leave.
This has been one of the series with the most soap stars, but the voting public don’t seem to have warmed to it.
Fans have taken to Twitter to air their annoyance about the series of events.
One tweeted: “Are Soap fans not voting on #ImACeleb 3 soap stars gone in a row Malique (Hollyoaks), Sair (Corrie) and Rita (Eastenders). Anne needs to go next for her own sake.”

Another added: “#ImACeleb Goddammit! I didn’t want @OfficialRita to go just yet! The poor soap stars just got eliminated one by one! @SairKhan @officialmal_ I feel so sorry for them. #Hollyoaks #Corrie #EastEnders.”

The ITV show has also been hit with conspiracy theories from viewers, with some calling eliminations “scripted” and a “fix”.
A spokesperson for I’m A Celebrity told ED! these claims are not true.
It came after Malique, 20, was seen with his rucksack on before his name was called during the vote-off.
Meanwhile, some viewers on Twitter thought Sair, 30, had done her hair and make-up before she was eliminated!
Hmm. We reckon she was just blessed with good looks, guys!
Even host Dec Donnelly, 43, has slammed the fix rumours.
He tweeted that the critics were “clutching at straws” after the gossiping about Sair’s exit.
