I’m A Celeb fans left outraged by format of latest show – My London
The newest season of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! has delighted fans with a great roster of celebs including long distance runner Mo Farah, BBC presenter Victoria Derbyshire and presenter Vernon Kay.
But the latest episode that aired last night (November 21) has left many fans fuming.
This came after a brilliant Friday night episode including some juicy confessions from Ruthie Henshall who shared some backroom gossip on her royal romance with Prince Edward.

When viewers tuned in to the slightly earlier time of 8.45pm they were greeted with a highlight reel from the previous week.
This was packaged up with memorable moments from the new series so far and a little unseen footage, hosted in pre-recorded links by Ant and Dec.
For fans expecting a fun new episode dealing with the aftermath of Friday’s bushtucker trial., this was quite the dissapointment.
Many went straight on social media to vent.
One user said: “We’re in the middle of a lockdown, with nothing to do but watch TV and #ImACeleb put on a recap after one week??”

Another said: “It’s only 3 weeks and it’s not like anyone’s going out anywhere so do we really need a recap show?! Can’t we just have an actual show?!”
A fan run account covering the show’s presenters Ant and Dec, said: “I feel like ITV have made a big mistake putting a recap/ highlights show on prime time, especially on a Saturday night during a lockdown when everyone is inside, they should have done the usual live show and then a highlights show after on ITV 2 or something #ImACeleb”
Many also resorted to memes to get their point across.
Despite the frustration, other fans were more accepting of ITV’s choices and critical of those complaining.
One fan wrote: “’I’m sick of moaners … get me out of here … haha could start a whole new show right here”.
Another wrote: “Ant & Dec are entitled to a day off”
The next episode will air at 9pm tonight on ITV.
