Due to the coronavirus pandemic, things are a little different on this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! The series has relocated from a jungle to a castle in Wales meaning it will be easier than ever for fans to keep up to date with what the celebrities are doing. While in the past, hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly have been presenting the series when it’s morning Down Under, this time they’ll be fronting each episode on GMT time.
However, with time zones no longer an issue, viewers were quick to point out the “unnecessary” inclusion of the clock.
Fans know longer need to know what time it is in Australia when the show goes out so some were baffled as to why it was shown on screen.
The hosts also referenced what time it was as they fronted the first episode of the series.
Ant remarked: “Welcome back to a brand new series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
A fifth joked: “Thank god they’ve put a clock on the screen to tell us what the time is in our own country #imacelebrity.”
However, some thought it was quite funny as one noted: “I just love the fact there is still the clock in the corner of our tv screens telling us what time it is, even though there is no time zone difference whatsoever. #imacelebrity.”
Meanwhile, campmate Jordan North left fans feeling rather queasy as he threw up before his first trial.
Five of the celebrities were tasked with abseiling down a cliff to pick up the rucksacks for everyone.
