ITV I’m A Celebrity fans moan over ‘annoying’ show habit after launch episode

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! made a welcome return to our TV screens on Sunday, 19 November with a fresh batch of celebrities ready to make the Australian jungle their home for the next three weeks.

This year's star-studded line-up includes the likes of Josie Gibson, Jamie Lynn Spears, Danielle Harold and Sam Thompson, but fans of the ITV show were actually left distracted by something else while watching the launch show.

I'm A Celebrity fans vented their frustration on social media after noticing how many advert breaks were included in the first episode of the new series, with some questioning why there were so many.

Taking to Twitter, now known as X, one person said: "How many ad breaks in one episode??? #ImACeleb," while a second viewer added: "Another Ad break. Get me out of here! #ImACeleb!"

"#ImACeleb I forgot about ad breaks every 10 seconds!" a third person fumed, and a fourth tweeted: "25 minutes until the first ad break 6 minutes until the next @ITV quit playing around, I wanna see celebrities scream on a pole #ImACeleb!"

It's not just the amount of ad breaks that have left I'm A Celeb fans frustrated this year, as some have refused to tune in to the new series due to Nigel Farage being one of the campmates.

Just seconds into the show's launch episode on Sunday, #BoycottImACeleb began trending on X, as many shared their anger at the former politician's participation on the show.

One wrote: "Absolutely deplorable that #ImACeleb pays a fortune for disreputable politicians to appear on it. This year and last. If we #BoycottImACeleb ITV will lose much needed advertising revenue."

"I would have watched this year but I won't have that racist a**hat Farage on my TV. @ITV stop hiring failed politicians for entertainment. Especially after the damage they've done to this country. First Hancock now Farage. #BoycottImACeleb" added another.

While a third penned: "I’m a celebrity is my favourite show of the year I have watched it every year (even though Hancock was on last year) I cannot in all conscience bring myself to watch it this year. Shame on you itv. #BoycottImACeleb."

And a fourth simply said: "I'm gutted but I cannot bear to waste a second on his smugness and his vile attitudes. So no #ImACeleb for us this year #BoycottImACeleb."

It's been reported that the former UKIP leader signed up for the show after he was offered a whopping £1.5 million to take part.
