The family favourite secured its lowest tune in rate in 10 years on the opening show, down three million viewers compared to last year. Strictly Come Dancing beat I’m A Celebrity in the ratings war, reeling in 8.1 million viewers on launch night this year.
Despite the disappointing start, I’m a Celeb still has millions of households glued to the telly as trials and camp tensions have started heating up.
So far DJ Naughty Boy has riled up viewers the most with his “temper tantrums” and attacks on fellow campmates.
He has claimed to be a “professional chef” and elbowed his way into cooking for the camp after criticising other celebs’ culinary skill set.
On Tuesday night, the country saw him get rowdy over an oxtail with Paralympic gold medalist Kadeena Cox who rebuked his nags with a “whatever”.
Twitter user @HelloFromJoe1 said: “The one thing Naughty Boy does is cook. All he does when cooking is complain and start arguments.”
Naughty Boy has been chosen by the public to do the next Bushtucker Trial called Savage Stakeout which will involve snakes, rats, and creepy crawlies.
Josh Baldwin tweeted: “I voted him because he’s a spoilt brat who cries every time he doesn’t get his own way.”
Sharon Atkinson said: “He’d better get used to being voted for every trial. Arrogant, wingey, spoilt brat.”
Research conducted by Mediaworks currently ranks Coronation Street star Simon Gregson as the most popular I’m A Celebrity contestant.
The other most popular stars on the show are Radio DJ Snoochie Shy, Emmerdale actor Danny Miller, and French footballer David Ginola.
Olympic gold medalist diver Matty Lee is the least popular according to Mediaworks’ Twitter sentiment analysis.
Ex-Strictly judge Arlene Phillips, journalist Louise Minchin, and Naughty Boy are also amongst the least popular.
