I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here viewers reckon there’s something suspicious going on.

After Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer became the second celebrity to leave the jungle last night, eagle-eyed viewers spotted something they reckoned was amiss.

As the campmates all sat around the fire awaiting the news of their fate from Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby, Malique appeared to be a little bit ahead of the game.

He was already carrying his coat, and with his rucksack on his back.

No one else was so well-equipped.

It’s the second time that this has been spotted, with Noel Edmonds also clutching a bag in the moments prior to his name being read out last week.

Edmonds was the first celebrity to leave the jungle, having received the fewest votes from viewers.

His rumoured £600,000 pay cheque for appearing on the series equated to around £37 for each minute he spent in the jungle.

But a ‘show insider’ told The Sun: “How the celebrities choose to pack up their bags before a vote is their choice.

“No one knows the outcome until Dec and Holly read it out.”

On exiting the show, Malique said: “I am glad to be out now, I am starving. I was really struggling with the food situation.”

As for what he’d miss, he said his other campmates, particularly former X Factor star Fleur East:“She is one of the reasons I kept going, it was like having my older sister in there.”

The show continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
