The celebrities gathered together and celebrated the news as Ant and Dec left.

Shane was then heard telling his campmates: “R and R, Stage Right, R and R.”

What did I’m A Celebrity viewers say?

Viewers spotted Shane’s comments and think the campmates already knew about the new arrivals.

One person said on Twitter: “So they knew about the two others joining… Shane Richie caught saying ‘don’t worry it’s R and R.'”

Another wrote: “Ant and Dec trying to claim the celebs don’t know about the new campmates yet Shane’s shouting R&R and Victoria says so they will be doing it.”

So Shane Richie gave it away that the camp mates already know about the new arrivals.

A third added: “So Shane Richie gave it away that the campmates already know about the new arrivals haha.

“Hear them say ‘R & R’ over and over. Russell and Ruthie.”

However, one person insisted it was Giovanna Fletcher who first said “R and R”.

They wrote: “It wasn’t even Shane the first one to say it, Giovanna did. He then went off and was like R&R.”

Tonight will see Russell and Ruthie take on their first Bushtucker trial, Stage Fright.

In a teaser clip released by ITV, the pair are seen dressed as Jesters in the medieval theme trial.
