Malique Thompson-Dwyer becomes second campmate to leave I'm a Celebrity, but viewers spot something odd

Malique Thompson-Dwyer has become the second contestant to be voted out of this year’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!.

The Hollyoaks actor followed first eliminee Noel Edmonds and left the jungle at the end of Sunday night’s episode (December 2) and, apparently, he’s “glad to be out”.

“I’m just glad to be out now and I was absolutely starving,” he told presenters Dec Donnelly and Holly Willoughby following the results.

However, viewers aren’t so thrilled.

Posting on Twitter after Malique’s exit was revealed, I’m a Celebrity viewers shared their devastation about his departure.

Here are a few of their reactions:

However, many viewers seemed to pick up on the fact that Malique was wearing his backpack when the results were revealed, and suggested it might have meant he knew in advance that he’d be leaving.

Here are those reactions:

“Did Malique know he was leaving the camp because he already had his bag on ready?” Asked one viewer. “Just me who noticed?”

However, ITV confirmed to Digital Spy that this wasn’t the case, as the celebrities have no idea who’s been voted off before Dec and Holly read out the results – and it’s entirely up to the campmates whether they choose to wear the backpack in advance or not.

It’s not the first time I’m a Celeb viewers have cried foul this series. ITV was previously forced to deny speculation that Anne Hegerty’s record-breaking live trial wasn’t quite as hellish as it seemed. Unfortunately for Anne: it was.

I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! continues at 9pm tomorrow night (December 3) on ITV.
