I'm A Celebrity 2020 viewers were suspicious that some stirring was going on in camp – either by some of the stars or even producers.
They were left baffled over a "missing scene", after Vernon Kay's unseen conversation with AJ Pritchard, after the latest trial.
AJ took on the latest Bushtucker Trial with EastEnders star Jessica Plummer, with them forced to enter tunnels in the dark separately.
They then had to search a room each in the dark, with rats and pigeons in, looking around for stars.
They couldn't see a thing, and had to find each other to hand over any stars – and help each other find them in the first place.

Both were pretty scared, but AJ was left screaming in high pitch as he made his way around the trial.
Later on in the episode though, Vernon and pal Shane Richie both made the prediction that Jess would be up for more trials – given her fears.
Vernon then claimed that AJ had told him how "petrified" Jessica was during the trial, with Shane believing this backed his theory.

But there was no mention of AJ being more scared than her by the men – leading to many viewers calling AJ out, believing he was concealing his own terror from them.
One viewer wrote: "Jess was petrified? Nice one AJ."
Another said: "AJ telling porkies- he was the scared one, Jess was calming HIM down!"

A third added: "So AJ told Vernon that Jess was petrified, but AJ was the one doing most of the screaming. Interesting that he didn't tell the boys that."
However, AJ had said on the show to the group how he was screaming, and Jess had to calm him down.
But what viewers noticed hadn't been shown, was the apparent separate conversation where he told Vernon how scared Jess was doing the task, which Vernon later fed back to Shane.

Many took this to mean Vernon may have been exaggerating things, as others questioned why the scene wouldn't have been shown.
One viewer wrote: "Am I the only one who seems to of missed AJ say Jess was terrified ???????"
Another agreed: "Don’t you think if AJ actually told Vernon Jess was petrified and he wasn’t they would have shown it? They would never cut out juicy footage."
A third added: "Tbh AJ did admit to the camp he was screaming and Jess calmed him down and that he couldn’t have done the trial without her. I think Vernon is stirring & exaggerated."
It's Shane's turn to do the next trial, so fans will see just how he does in comparison!
