Rebekah Vardy has sensationally claimed that I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is fake and that producers control the campmates a lot more than it seems.
The wife of footballer Jamie Vardy, who took part in the ITV show last year, has claimed that producers tell campmates when to shower and what to talk about.
The 31-year-old also claims the show is heavily-edited and that some scenes are filmed more than once, with celebs asked to repeat their actions for the cameras.
Rebekah says she was surprised to see how producers operate behind the scenes when she set up home in the jungle.

In an interview with heat magazine, she said: "If you’re stood where the phone box is and look straight out, it’s all fake. I lost count of how many cameras there are."
Rebekah said cameras are on zipwires above the heads of the campmates and that they "follow you everywhere". She compared it to life in the Big Brother house, saying stars are "watched and listed to 24 hours a day".
Rebekah also claimed she and her fellow campmates were given a "b*****ing" for not using the jungle shower enough, but that they were put off from getting in their swimwear by how cold it is and the amount of leeches lying around.

She also claims bosses send notes to the campmates telling them to discuss certain topics.
When asked what surprised her the most when she took part in the show, she said: "How edited it is, even down to us walking to the trials. We had to do that walk three or four times.
"Any time that you see people sat around the fire, usually someone’s been called into the Bush Telegraph and comes out with a bit of paper and says, ‘We all need to discuss this topic’."
