Fans of AJ Pritchard are complaining that he is not getting enough airtime on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!
The former Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer, 26, has not featured heavily in the episodes of the 2020 run.
In Friday night's live trial, however, fans got to see AJ Pritchard send a message to his father Adrian, saying "Happy Birthday".
AJ had gone head to head with former EastEnders star Jessica Plummer as they stuck their heads into boxes of rats with their arms trapped in stocks as they tried to secure coins for a luxury banquet.
Both managed to collect all of the available coins, but AJ took a chance during the counting of coins to send his birthday wish to his father.

One fan wrote on Twitter : "AJ using his second 30 seconds of airtime to say happy birthday to his dad #ImACeleb ".
"Me sat waiting for AJ to appear on my screen #ImACeleb," joked another viewer.
