I’m A Celebrity fans accuse bosses of ‘fixing’ the Bushtucker Trial result

Furious fans of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! have accused bosses of ‘fixing’ the show’s Bushtucker Trial result, after Matt Hancock’s six-trial streak came to an end.

The former Health Secretary was voted to face a string of challenges by the public when he entered the camp last week.

But on Monday, it was revealed that Boy George, Chris Moyles and Babatunde Aleshe had been chosen for the latest trial, with many noting it was suspicious that Matt was abruptly no longer viewers’ top choice.

That’s not right! Fans of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here have accused bosses of ‘fixing’ the show’s Bushtucker Trial result, after Matt Hancock’s six-trial streak came to an end

George, Chris and Babatunde were chosen to face Tuesday’s trial, named Angel Of Agony, and only managed to win three stars out of a possible 11.

The fact that Matt wasn’t one of three celebrities voted to face the challenge, when he had been top choice for numerous trials beforehand, immediately caught viewers’ attention.

One tweeted: ‘You’re telling me the same public are voting for Matt Hancock to do trials (least popular) AND camp leader (most popular)?? I smell an ITV fix for desperate ratings.’

However one fan was quick to note that many viewers had complained about Matt being voted for every trial, so it was no surprise they’d tired of him.

They wrote: ‘People have been moaning the last few days about Matt Hancock keep getting voted. When he does’nt they are saying it’s a fix, make your mind up!’

Elsewhere during Tuesday’s show, Boy George has admitted that he’s finding it difficult to gel with politician Matt Hancock in the jungle.

Speaking to campmate Sue Cleaver in a private chat on Tuesday’s show, the singer said he finds Matt, 44, ‘very hard to warm to’.

‘I find him very hard to warm to,’ Boy George began.

‘Everyone else I feel connected to in a kind of… without having to know the ins and outs of who you are,’ he said. 

Sue said it’s because Matt is in the jungle surrounded by ‘creative’ types. 

‘You’ve got an economist in a camp with a load of creatives,’ she began.

‘He’s math all the way, he uses a different side of his brain. Do you know what I mean?’ she added.

At the end of the episode, Chris was voted to do his second Bushtucker Trial as it was announced he was voted by the public to do Boiling Point. 

Chris looked gutted and was consoled by his fellow campmates as Ant and Dec revealed the latest trial would see him ‘reach boiling point’. 

Meanwhile, Matt and the rest of the housemates all looked shocked when he managed to escape the trial.

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight at 9pm on ITV1.
