I’M A Celeb viewers were left baffled by the contestants “fake” reunion after the campmates returned to the castle after three days away.
The series had to pull scheduled trips to the castle after Storm Arwen wreaked devastation on production facilities in North Wales.
On Wednesday’s episode, ITV viewers finally saw the campmates reunite after they were forced to take a short break from the castle.
However, fans were quick to point out that the contestants were being overly friendly despite only knowing each other for one week.
One sceptical viewer wrote: “They are all being incredibly fake. #ImACeleb”
Another agreed: “Everyone is fake best mates b****cks in the castle. #ImACeleb”
A third posted: “Frankie’s fake smile. #I’mACeleb”
“Is everyone acting super friendly on purpose? #ImACeleb,” another shared.
Shortly after their emotional reunion, Ant and Dec revealed the shocking haul of contraband seized from the I’m A Celeb campmates.
The tray of goodies included Vaseline, apples, boiled sweets, fake tan and a brooch as the celebs tried their luck smuggling items into Gwrych Castle.
Ant insisted: “This is genuine what they tried to smuggle in.”
Dec joked: “Where were they quarantining? Superdrug.”
Quick as a flash, Ant replied: “Don’t be silly it was Boots.”
The attempt shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise as Naughty Boy was rumbled at the beginning of the series for trying to bring in cooking spices.
While they were unable to bring the goodies back to camp, Louise Minchin and Frankie Bridge revealed how they scoffed chocolate during the three days the celebs were outside the castle.
Former BBC star Louise couldn’t resist the Snickers she found in her bag, while Frankie gorged on Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut.
Danny Miller insisted he refused all treats and continued living on rations and slept on the floor.
Brutal Storm Arwen forced bosses to pull the celebs out and back into quarantine cottages.
Ant and Dec recently revealed how the show came to fall off air after wind and rain lashed the Welsh castle where the series is filmed.
Speaking from Ant’s cottage in North Wales the pair said they were “just gutted” after their show was cancelled for the first time in its history.

They added that the high winds ripped up the production team’s marquees and tents – with Gwrych Castle itself the only building unaffected.
The pair told how bosses ordered them to come into the castle on Friday afternoon saying: “We got a call on Friday afternoon to come into site ASAP as we had to pre-record the show just to be safe in case satellites went down.”
