Some I’m A Celebrity… fans are convinced that Rita Simons left the jungle last night because she’s due to star in a panto this week.
The EastEnders actress is playing the wicked fairy Carabosse in the pantomime production of Sleeping Beauty in Bournemouth which is advertised to start on 8 December.
Fans were quick to take to Twitter following her eviction from the show. One wrote: “Coincidence that Rita gets voted out tonight and she’s due to open Bournemouth panto in 5 days? #ImACelebrity #ImACeleb.”
Another tweeted: “Rita Simons is in panto in Bournemouth from Friday. How does that work #imaceleb”
A third added: “Rita’s in a panto this year tht opens on Saturday… coincidence she gets voted aff tnite?”
While another pondered: “Hmm interesting. Rita out of #ImACeleb and starring in a pre-booked panto on Saturday.”
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has been facing a lot of ‘fix’ claims recently. It feels like every day there’s a new conspiracy theory.
Well it looks like Dec has had enough, as he picked one theorist to put on blast on social media.
Twitter user Simon Page wrote on the micro-blogging site: “@imacelebrity still not rigged?#SairKhan had done her hair and was ready to leave…. hmmmm 🤔 something a bit fishy about these vote offs @antanddec @hollywills”.
Dec replied to the Tweet and responded in only the way he can…

He wrote: “Done her hair? You’re clutching at straws now!”
Just this week fans were kicking off at the show on social media after spotting something ‘suspicious’ every time someone has been voted out this series.
When letting the camp know who would be going, eagle-eyed fans have noticed that both Noel Edmonds (who was the first to leave the camp) and Malique Thompson-Dwyer both appeared to be already wearing their backpacks when getting ready to hear their fate – but no-one else in camp seemed to have theirs on. Hmm.

When Noel was voted out there was that fix claim because he was already holding his bag… Malique had his backpack on yesterday too… Do they know? 🤔 #imaceleb

A TV Insider has reportedly told the press: “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.”
