I’m A Celebrity viewers predict shock twist after Jack Maynard’s exit

The YouTuber sensationally left the jungle on Tuesday

Now the shock of Jack Maynard’s sudden departure from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has passed, fans are wondering what happens next.

And most viewers reckon there is a twist on the horizon…

What, you ask? Well, fans are predicting a new celebrity will be introduced to camp to fill the space left by YouTuber Jack.

As soon as Jack’s exit was announced on Tuesday night, fans were on Twitter speculating over whether a new camper will be brought in to fill the void.

Quite a few viewers have already been predicting Jack’s own BROTHER could be brought in, thanks to a tweet popstar Conor Maynard sent earlier this week.

He’d jokingly said: “Hey  … if there’s any Bushtucker trials Jack doesn’t want to do, I’d be happy to.. “cover”.. for him. #JungleJack.”

While it was no doubt said in jest, the tweet combined with Conor’s recent social media silence was enough to start the rumour mill!

Well, it doesn’t take much these days, does it?

Other fans, however, threw out different suggestions for a replacement, with former I’m A Celeb star Gemma Collins being a favourite.

She famously quit the jungle back in 2014 after just three days.

Another popular option was Phillip Schofield, although we reckon he’s probably a bit too busy with This Morning and getting ready for the Dancing On Ice reboot!

So far, there’s no word on whether ITV will actually replace Jack.

In previous years the show hasn’t replaced departed contestants; no one came in when Gemma walked, or when the likes of Spencer Matthews or Danniella Westbrook chose to leave.

Therefore it does seem unlikely a replacement will enter this time around.

And anyway, there were already two new celebrities on their way to camp before Jack even quit.

Radio DJ Iain Lee and former Scottish Labour Party leader Kezia Dugdale are in Oz and getting ready to enter the camp as late arrivals.

So adding a third new arrival may be too much.

YouTuber Jack, 22, is thought to be on the way home to the UK after stunning fans on Tuesday night when he exited the jungle just days after arriving.

His rep said Jack wanted to be able to defend himself against recent tabloid stories and wasn’t able to do that while cooped up in camp.

The star issued an apology last week after being accused of sending homophobic and racist tweets back in 2012, admitting the language in the now-deleted posts was “completely unacceptable.”

It’s now at the centre of fresh allegations that he sent “inappropriate messages” online to a female fan, although he has yet to respond to that accusation.

I’m A Celebrity airs nightly at 9pm on ITV.
