This year's I'm A Celebrity crop will surely go down as some of the worst behaved of all time.

They keep breaking various show rules, leading furious viewers to call for them to be punished by bosses to stand as a warning.

The celebs are banned from communicating with their friends and family at home but have still been making not-so-secret hand signals and gestures to the cameras.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg, as a number of the stars have been accused of 'cheating' and using underhand tactics during some of the Bushtucker trials.

They have also tried to deceive Geordie presenters Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly – and the blatant cheating was even caught out during the chaotic live trial in Friday night.

Here is a look at all the I'm A Celeb campmates who have been accused of breaking the rules during trials.

Coronation Street legend Bev put in a tremendous performance during the eating trial – putting a number of disgusting dishes in her mouth.

Bev chomped her way through vomit fruit and fermented plums and tofu, but some viewers claimed she got off lightly as the boys had sheep's penis, goat's eyes and deer testicles.

The Liz McDonald actress, who said she turned vegan in March this year, sparked fury as viewers began to question her credentials and claimed she did it to avoid the worst food.

"Vegan?! Is that not cheating," tweeted one viewers, while another asked: "Don’t get it. If her dishes are vegan how is that going to be hard or challenging ?"

For those who felt that she cheated in the eating trial, crew members have said that two of them fell ill while trying the food that she ate and are worse than any animal willy.

The 'cheat' claims escalated in another twist when some viewers suggested Bev had eaten butter, which was unconfirmed.

Bev's on-screen hubby Charlie Lawson, who plays Jim McDonald on Corrie, hinted her vegan diet could be a load of cobbles.

Backing his pal to win he said: “Well, maybe she is or isn’t a vegan. I couldn’t possibly comment. If it was a tactic, it meant you wouldn’t eat sheep’s b*****ks.

“So look I’m sure she is vegan bless her, I wouldn’t know but it’s not a bad ploy if animal penis is on the menu.”

Russell Watson

Russell had a baptism of fire in the castle as his first act was to dip his head into barrels full of nasties.

The operatic singer also chipped a tooth and said he felt a mealworm in his teeth during a disgusting trial.

Along with fellow newbie Ruthie he managed to get 11 out of 12 stars, but some viewers claimed he wasn't playing fair.

They claimed Russell was using his hands in the barrels of doom to find what he was looking for rather than just his mouth.

"Why was Russell allowed to cheat in those trials? He was blatantly using his hand to scoop the answers to his mouth in the [barrel] and was tipping the fish eyes," tweeted one angry fan.

Another agreed: "Ooo some cheating from Russell in the trial tonight! Not like @antanddec to miss it!"

Jordan North finally beat his fears and won all 12 stars during his first ever solo trial.

Having been voted by the public every single day, Jordan proved he can be brave by defeating the Trapped Door.

There was a mix up at the end of the trial as gutted Jordan left without the last star because he could not find it in the underground tunnel.

But bug-covered Jordan then realised, to everyone's amazement, that he did actually have the final star in his bag but hadn't realised.

Baffled fans rushed to social media with their theories – with some suggesting that the producers may have had something to do with it.

"Me trying to work out how the 12th star transcended time and space and got into Jordan’s bag," tweeted one viewer, while another added: "Not having this #ImACeleb Jordan fully didn’t put that star in his bag."

However, ITV have denied the claims and exclusively told Mirror Online: "Jordan won all 12 stars fair and square, any suggestion to the contrary is untrue."

Ruthie Henshall

This year's live trial was a bit of a car crash – with a number of celebs being accused of breaking the rules that had been laid out beforehand.

One of those was Ruthie Henshall, who was tasked with dunking hear head into a trough of offal and slime to dig out coins with her mouths.

Joined by Hollie Anold MBE, the pair faced up against the boys during the Lords and Ladies challenge in a bid to win a gourmet banquet.

"RUTHIE IS F***ING CHEATING!!!," cried one outraged viewer on Twitter, while another added: "I can't believe that woman… what a cheat!"

Not content with using the underhand tactics, Ruthie then went a step further by lying to Anthony and Declan.

Bold-faced Ruth proudly announced she had got three stars and drawn with the lads, but Dec realised she was faking it and had actually got just two stars.

Shane Richie

Another live trial controversy involved EastEnders actor Shane Richie, who faced up against Ruthie and Hollie alongside Jordan.

Viewers noticed Shane using the same dirty trick as Ruthie while trying to dig out coins with his mouth.

Some claimed Shane was using his hands in the messy trough to dig out the plastic chips, which was made clear was against the rules before the trial took place.

Viewers clocked naughty Shane using his fingers to find the objects in the gunk before picking them up with his face – which Ant and Dec said was banned.

Jessica Plummer

Jessica Plummer is under fire for sending messages back home by writing on her hat.

But she's also been accused of having an unfair advantage during the live trial, which saw her pitted against former Strictly star AJ Pritchard.

The pair had to put their heads in a box full of rats then spin some coins off using their hands.

The task was made harder by having their arms trapped in some stocks so that they had less movement.

Screaming Jessica kept moving around and made it incredibly hard for the ranger to lock her inside, so she was able to complete the trial with the full motion of her arm.

Outraged viewers claimed this made it far easier for the former EastEnders star, who still only managed to draw with AJ.

"I’m sorry but jess should be disqualified. she took so long that they didn’t even clamp her hands. she had a clear advantage over aj. not okay," said one annoyed viewer.
