Family members of AJ Pritchard and Giovanna Fletcher are desperate to see them do trials – fearing they are not getting enough airtime.
Author and podcaster Giovanna, 35, was one of the favourites to win before the show started but has barely been on screen, whilst Strictly Come Dancing star AJ has had his longest segment on screen when he was having a shower on the opening show.
Tom Fletcher, the husband of Giovanna said on her instagram: “I feel like we need to do some voting to get her to do something. I would like to see her do a trial so I am going all out voting. Lets get her eating some bugs or something.”
AJ's brother Curtis said: “If you want the honest truth I’ve not seen enough of him. I want to get him to do a trial. I want to see him scream, cry, maybe be a bit scared.

“I think we need to get him in a challenge with a couple of other people. Then he’ll show off that massive personality he has, which we’ve not seen yet.”
Insiders on the show also say if contestants don't do trials or get much airtime they tend to get booted off first.
A source said: “Their families know if they don't get more involved and suffer on screen they can wave goodbye to being king or queen.”

Tonight all the contestants got to take part in a trial as the show had its first live trial of the series.
The Royal Tournament saw campmates split into The Lords and The Ladies with six celebrities on each team.
There were four head-to-head games in which celebrities will compete to try and collect as many gold coins as they can.
Games included bobbing in offal, enduring the dreaded coffins full of bugs while unthreading coins, being stuck in stocks whilst finding coins and being confined to a chair whilst trying to release coins.
The winning team was rewarded with a lavish banquet whilst the losers went hungry and face more trials tomorrow night.
