Matty was tasked to divide popcorn between the campmates.

Matty fans plead for screen time

Fans of the star have taken to social media to complain.

On Twitter, one said: “Will always support @mattydiver but it’s infuriating that so many other campmates get all the airtime and he hardly gets any.

“How are people gonna see how amazing and worth saving he is if @imacelebrity don’t air his conversations and he never gets to do any trials! #TeamMatty.”

It’s not fair!

Another raged “I’ve voted for him at every opportunity but it’s now pointless. It’s become the Frankie and Naughty Boy show.”

In addition, a third wrote: “Trying to support Matty, he’s not getting air time for some reason & it’s not fair. I’m watching this for Matty, he deserves to do a trial, so so fed up of #ImACeleb WE WANT TO SEE MATTY! #TeamMatty.”

A fourth shared: “#ImACeleb Can we PLEASE have at least ONE trial without Naughty Boy? How much screen time have Matty and Louise had? Barely any. They’re not doing any trials because you’re all voting for Naughty Boy.”

However, the comments didn’t go unnoticed by the star’s friends and family.
