I’M A Celeb fans have been left reeling after David Ginola was axed tonight – saying the path has been left clear for a Frankie Bridge win.
In what some fans have dubbed a “ITV fix” the Loose Women star is now among the front-runners to take the crown tomorrow.
One viewer fumed: “Unbelievable…… f**king fix. No way Frankie Bridge is earned her right in the final.”
Another tweeted: “Someone pointed out the show is pushing Frankie to win and it’s a fix and I can’t help but notice how obvious it is.”
A third insisted: “If Frankie wins it’s possibly the biggest fix in the history of the show.”
Frankie, 32, is an ITV star, having been a fixture on Loose Women since February this year.
Earlier this week former I’m A Celeb contestant Nicola McLean claimed the broadcaster wanted her to win, saying it had “figured out their winner”.
She told the the Daily Star: “I think they have done it because they like to do an ITV friendly person.”
However, given the decision as to who goes rests entirely with viewers, claims of any fix are unlikely to be taken seriously.
She will contest the final against two other ITV stars – Coronation Street’s Simon Gregson and Emmerdale actor Danny Miller in the final tomorrow night.
Viewers tonight sent football legend David Ginola, for many days a frontrunner to win, home in a dramatic elimination.
One fan gasped: “I think everyone assumed David was safe and voted for their second favourite.”

Speaking about his journey after getting evicted he said being on the show was like a “second adoption” by the British public after his welcome to Newcastle United in 1995.
He said: “It surprised me in a good way and a bad way because obviously it was really really hard. The conditions we were living in were very complicated.
“The food, the sleep, the lack of everything actually. But I kept some positive things in my mind, thinking: ‘I’m going to get out of the castle full of love for the people I love very much.’
“I can’t wait to get close to them because it’s a hell of a journey.”
