I’m A Celebrity fans are calling for Nick Knowles to be kicked out after he revealed his controversial theory on the moon landings.
Despite all the compelling evidence, Nick insisted that no-one had ever landed on the moon.
He clashed with the camp’s resident genius Anne Hegerty, who shut down his bizarre claims with concrete facts.
Viewers joked that The Chase was over for Nick after being caught out by The Governess.
Pointing out that the Russians were tracking the rocket, Anne said: "If it hadn’t gone to the moon, the Russians would have said so."

Refusing to give up, Nick insisted: “Around the outside of the earth is the Van Allen belt which is massively radioactive and the argument is you would have to build a spacecraft out of lead in order to protect the astronauts.”
Anne suggested: “Except you are going through it quite fast, it need not have that massive effect.”
Rather than accepting defeat, Nick continued to come at Anne with some ridiculous attempts to prove her wrong.
Anne tried to correct him
Nick thought he was right
The DIY SOS presenter ranted: "Then what about the other questions, on their chests they wore the cameras on which they took the photographs of the moon, it was a chest mounted camera, in which was Kodak film, as you know there is no atmosphere on the moon in direct sunlight it is something like 200 degrees yet Kodak film has an operating field of like 130 degrees yet amazingly it all worked.
"Also the moon landing photographs it appears to be lit from two sides can you explain that?"
Hitting back, Anne suggested: "You are getting sunlight and then you are getting sunlight bouncing back from the earth. If the whole thing is fake what do you think happened to Apollo 1, the one that caught fire on the launch pad, I mean if there were never going to actually go…?"
Nick replied: “The reason was the Russians had already got into orbit and circulated the earth inside the Van Allen belt so the only way they could top it was to go to the moon and back. When they discovered they couldn’t the only way to do it was to fake it.”
Anne was not amused
John asked: “So John Glenn and all those guys kept it a secret their entire lives?”
Emily, who also backed Anne, said: "Oh the conspiracy theories of people to actually landing on the moon. I think it’s b*ll*cks. I think we have bl**dy landed on the moon."
I’m A Celebrity viewers took to Twitter to slam Nick for his theory.
One viewer said: "Time to get rid of Nick now!!! Fed up of listening to his c**p!!!"
Another added: "Have been sticking up for Nick Knowles. Right up until the moment he comes up with his moon landing conspiracy. What an idiot."
A third joked: "Nick you have been caught and for you the chase is over"
