I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! has been hit by fix claims after Malique Thompson-Dwyer was spotted wearing his coat and bag just minutes before he was voted off.
The Hollyoaks star, 20, was the second celebrity to leave the jungle on Sunday’s show, after Noel Edmonds’ shock departure on Friday.
Following the actor’s exit, viewers pointed out that the star was the only camp mate wearing his backpack before presenters Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby announced his name.

Once the coincidence was spotted, outraged viewers took to Twitter to claim the show was fixed.

Another added: ‘Isn’t it interesting that the two people that have left the jungle already had their bags ready to leave.’
While one viewer asked: ‘Did anyone else notice that Malique had his bag on before they even called his name or was that just me?’
Others said: ‘First Noel having this bag on his lap, then Malique with a bag on his back. Someone say scripted?’
And one fan insisted: ‘Malique had his bag on…he knew he was going! It’s a fix!’
