I’m A Celebrity confirms when first star will leave as phone lines open – and fans claim they know who it will be


I’M A Celebrity will wave goodbye to its first campmate tonight.

Phone lines for the first elimination were opened last night – one week before the show finale.

The first I’m A Celeb contestant will be voted off tonight

Speaking in camp, Declan Donnelly said: “Right listen up because we’ve got big news. Tomorrow night the vote-offs begin, and voting is now open.

“You’re voting for the celebrities you want to keep in the camp. We’re back tomorrow when we reveal the first celebrity to leave.”

Viewers seem to think Hollie Arnold and Ruthie Henshall are most in danger.

One predicted: “Omg first vote off tomorrow I can see it being Hollie #ImACeleb.”

A second shared: “Voteoff begins tomorrow. Russell and Ruthie gone quiet lately, might be in danger I think #imacelebrity.”

The I’m a Celebrity final will air next Friday

Another said: “I think the voteoff will be between aj, gi and mbe! #ImaCeleb.”

The ITV reality show had to move to Wales this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, and while it might feel for some like the series has only just started, the end is already in sight.

The show began on Sunday November 15 and saw the likes of Shane Richie, Beverley Callard and Vernon Kay head to Gwyrch Castle in Wales.

One of the celebs will be crowned the first King or Queen of the Castle – as opposed to the jungle.

And that decision will be made in a week, as the final has been confirmed to air on Friday, December 4.

The finale will air at 9pm on ITV and the episode will be one hour and 35 minutes long.
