Suspicious viewers cried foul when Malique Thompson Dwyer was spotted with his bags packed BEFORE the results of the public vote-off had been announced last night.
Fans noticed that the nominated campmate was already sat there holding his back pack, prompting a slew of ‘fix’ claims.
"How much of a fix is I’m a Celebrity. Malique sutting there with his backpack on and everyone else is just chilling," tweeted one viewer.
"Why did Malique only have his backpack when the others did is it another fix," raged another.
"Total fix, camp mates knew who was going before dec and holly announced it, Malique had his rucksack on his back, no one else in camp had a bag with them," echoed a third.

However, Mirror Online can now reveal the truth behind the confusing incident, with a well-placed ITV source revealing it wasn’t just Malique who has his bags packed.
"All the contestants pack up whatever they want to bring with them before Dec and Holly go into camp," the insider said.
“Malique was the only contestant with his backpack on but if you looked around camp there were lots of other bags packed on the floor ready to go.

“It is also up to contestants exactly how much of their stuff they want to take out of camp.
“It looked like Malique put his bag on as he knew there was a good chance it would be him.
"He was the least famous of the people in there and hadn’t made a big impression.”
