I’m A Celeb Fans Spot Nick Pickard Eating Panini in Camp


Hollyoaks Star Leaves Viewers Baffled

During last night’s episode of I’m A Celeb, fans were left puzzled when Hollyoaks star Nick Pickard appeared to be tucking into a panini. ITV1 viewers spotted him holding what looked like a sandwich in a brown bag, which surprised many as additional food is not provided to the stars, beyond rice and beans and what is won in the Bucktucker Trials.

Social Media Buzz

Viewers took to X (formerly Twitter) to express their confusion. One person asked, “Is that Nick eating a sandwich?” while another added, “Was that a sandwich in #nick’s hand?” Someone else questioned, “What did Nick have in his hand? looked a bit like a sandwich/burger in brown paper.”

Explanation from an Insider

An insider clarified the situation, stating that the bag Nick was holding was actually the bag that the rice comes in. It was used as a bin bag by another contestant the day before to clean up the camp.

Nick’s Camp Exit Sparks “Fix” Rumors

Later in the episode, Nick was the fourth contestant to be eliminated from the show. This led to rumors of a “fix” from fans, especially after it came down to him and This Morning presenter Josie Gibson in the bottom two. Some viewers accused the commercial network of showing bias and protecting the star who anchors their flagship daytime show.

Nick’s Reaction to Leaving the Show

Despite the speculation, Nick seemed unfazed by the drama surrounding his elimination. He was seen flashing a huge smile as he was greeted by his partner, Sarah Corrin. On Good Morning Britain, he expressed his relief at being out of the camp. Nick shared, “It’s a great experience and very overwhelming. I am glad to be out. Half of you wishes you could make it to the final, but the other half is counting down the days, and if I come out now I have six days in a lovely place. Then I’ve just got to go to a party and go home.”

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight on ITV1 and ITVX.

Nick’s Reunion with Sarah Corrin

After leaving the show, Nick was reunited with his partner, Sarah Corrin, showing that he was happy to be back with his loved ones.
