Voting is now open for I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! 2022's first eviction, with viewers in control of who leaves camp first.

With 10 celebrities entering the show on the first day, one forced to quit on medical grounds after 24 hours, and two shock additions a few days later, it was a busy start to the series.

Now, we're about to really find out who the public are backing with jungle evictions and the grand final looming.

When is the first I'm A Celebrity 2022 eviction?

The first I'm A Celebrity eviction for 2022 has been confirmed for Friday, 18 November, keeping to the traditional schedule of beginning jungle exits on day 13.

Although Olivia Attwood had to leave early, it shouldn't change the usual eviction schedule as in years where there have been no early exits there is often a double eviction day.

Campmates are then usually spared an eviction on day 14 and resume a daily ceremony of someone being booted from camp from day 15 onwards.

As ever, who gets sent home from the jungle depends on the viewers' votes entirely.

Host Dec explained in Thursday's episode: "One of them will be heading for home. So for the first time this series you’re voting to keep your favourites in the camp. The person with the fewest votes will leave tomorrow and that vote is now open."

To vote to keep your favourite celebrities in camp, head over to the I'm A Celebrity app which is available on the App Store and Google Play, or go to the website to vote at

On his entry to the jungle, the answer to this would have looked like a certain yes.

However, there was shock from many when a public vote revealed that along with Mike Tindall, he had gained the most viewer votes to be the first camp leader, a contest he eventually won.

Hancock was up for six consecutive bushtucker trials on the public vote but fell just short of Naughty Boy's record of seven last year as it appeared some viewers had started to take pity on him - or perhaps were even impressed by his ability to win stars.

But there has been a growing call for viewers to boycott him by not giving him the air time of further trials, and on Tuesday a plane was hired to fly over the camp bearing the message "Covid Bereaved Say Get Out of Here".

It's still anyone's guess as to what extent MP Hancock has achieved his aim of rehabilitating his image.

The series usually finishes on a Sunday night and, with the exception of the two pandemic series at the castle, has been running for 22 episodes in recent years.

It's an earlier calendar finish than usual, because ITV is sharing rights to air World Cup matches in November and December.

I'm A Celebrity continues nightly on ITV.
