Before unleashing her fart on many, many viewers, Rita admitted that she'd been having "stomach problems" since arriving in Australia, and said that she was scared to do a "public poo".

However, she eventually went off to Snake Rock's dunny, and her very loud fart was heard by contestants James McVey and Fleur East, who were in hysterics.
When she left the bog, Rita laughed and asked: "How loud was that?"
After Rita's big fart, one viewer wrote: "That fart what Rita just let go on I'm a celeb was f**king vile."

"Rita farting had me laughing out loud though! How many millions have now heard her fart," another joked.
"Letting out an accidental fart on the toilet on LIVE TV would totally be me. Dont worry Rita I got you," shared a third.

I think Rita might have kept that fart in for a while. But I think she couldn't help it and it just came out.

Meanwhile, ITV has hit back at claims from the tabloid press that there is already uncertainty over Holly Willoughby's future on I'm a Celebrity.
The This Morning presenter only made her debut alongside Declan Donnelly in the jungle a couple of days ago, and there was admittedly a mixed response to seeing her (or anyone) standing in for the missing Ant.
I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here continues tonight (November 20) at 9pm on ITV, followed by Extra Camp at 10pm on ITV2.
