I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! viewers have accused this series of being "rushed" with some wondering if it was out of panic the whole thing would be called off due to the pandemic.

This series is a shorter one at just three weeks, meaning only four days into the series, the celebrities got their luxury items.

A lot of the luxury items had sentimental value,  and many of the stars burst into tears thinking about their families.

Viewers pointed out they only saw family members four days ago while currently many people over the world have gone months without seeing their families.

It ordered Ruthie Henshall to get a foot massage from a campmate, and Russell Watson had to pretend to see a ghost.

This bears some resemblance to Big Brother's Tree of Temptation which also gave out secret missions.

One wrote: "Feel like I'm watching Big Brother not #ImACeleb," while another moaned: #ImACeleb this series is turning into celebrity Big Brother!

"Not in a good way either."

But some viewers loved the secret mission task, with one tweeting: "Ruth and Russell's prank task has got Big Brother task vibes and I'm loving it".

"This series of #ImACeleb feels SO much like Big Brother. With the secret tasks and even the way the castle feels.

"If that makes sense lol. But it's not a bad thing, it's great!" gushed another.

* I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! returns tomorrow night at 9pm on ITV.
