I’m A Celebrity news: How did Snoochie Shy’s lack of knowledge come up?

During last night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity, Louise and Richard had a chat with Snoochie about music.

“What’s your go-to type of music?” Snoochie asked Louise and Richard as they helped with the washing.

“I like rock,” Richard Madeley replied, citing The Beatles as a favourite of his. “It’s all very dated. I thought The Eagles were an incredible band.”

“The who?” Snoochie Shy asked, not in reference to the legendary 60s band.

“I don’t know who they are,” Snoochie said when Richard repeated himself.

Richard asked Snoochie Shy if she’d heard of one of the band’s most iconic songs – Hotel California – but the DJ shook her head.

“I know who The Beatles are, obviously,” Snoochie Shy said, but Louise and Richard were in shock.

What were Richard and Louise’s reactions?

Snoochie then said that if Richard sang a song the Eagles had sung, she might know who they are. Richard Madeley and Louise Minchin then launched into a short rendition of Hotel California.

The six-and-a-half-minute long song was released back in 1977 and won a Grammy for Record of the Year in 1978.

Initially, Snoochie didn’t recognise the song, but when Richard started singing the chorus, it clicked.

“Oh, yeah, I know that,” she said.

Snoochie later admitted she didn’t know the song American Pie by Don McLean either. She thought Richard was talking about the 1999 movie.

What did I’m A Celebrity fans say about Snoochie Shy?

Louise and Richard were fascinated by the generational gap between themselves and Snoochie. However, I’m A Celebrity viewers were less than impressed with the DJ’s lack of “classic” musical knowledge.

“Snoochie Shy is nearly 30 mate. Not knowing who The Eagles are isn’t a generation gap. It’s just a gap in knowledge. And for a DJ it’s a pretty poor gap,” one viewer tweeted.

“Isn’t Snoochie a radio DJ?” another I’m A Celebrity fan asked. “Shouldn’t she know the Eagles etc. She’s not that young.”

“I’m the same age as Snoochie Shy and I am not a radio DJ and I know who The Eagles are,” a third viewer said.

One viewer took Snoochie’s side though.

“People saying Snoochie doesn’t know who the Eagles are but they don’t know who Linkin Park or Incubus are. It’s all relative!” they wrote.
