THE Games viewers have insisted that Max George “cheated” in the climb challenge against Ryan Thomas.
The ITV sporting competition saw the men take on a 15m wall on Thursday night.
The celebrities went head-to-head, with The Wanted’s Max and Ex-Coronation Street star Ryan competing against each other.
Max speeded up the wall as the commentator pointed out that he wasn’t even using the foot holds.
Viewers were stunned at Max’s climbing skills and suggested he may have “broken the rules”.

A third said: “Max just running up the wall and not using the foot things. #TheGames”
“Max doing his best Spiderman impression getting up that wall,” a fourth commented.
“#TheGames Are they allowed to just run up the wall?
After a neck and neck round, Ryan was pipped at the post with a time of 23.79 compared to Max’s 22.99.
Elsewhere, Wes Nelson landed top spot with an impressive 15.70 in round one of the speed climbing heat.
In the second round Wes took on Ryan as Max went up against Josh Herdman.
Love Island star and singer Wes excelled with 16.8 compared to Ryan’s 17.96.
Meanwhile, Max appeared to be sprinting up the wall until he lost his footing and fell, meaning it was an easy victory for Josh.
It comes after viewers complained about the number of adverts and said the show is overly “padded out” to fill an hour slot.
On Wednesday’s instalment, popstar George Ezra opened the third episode with his new track.
But ITV viewers have suggested that the show doesn’t know what it wants to be and were baffled by tonight’s “random” start.

A third said: “I’m not sure what this programme knows what it is – part chat show, part advice/interview show, part music, loads of adverts. One thing for sure – very little sports/games. #The Games”
“#TheGames It’s that bad they are padding out the show before it’s even started,” a fourth commented.
The sporting competition has been pushing the celebrities to their limits.
Actor Colson Smith revealed the heartbreaking reason he never learned to swim until The Games.

The sports show sees the celebs take on a variety of sports, one of which was swimming.
However, Colson, 23, revealed he had only learned to swim five weeks ago in preparation for the show.
In the last couple of years Colson has lost an incredible 10 stone after taking up running, and he admitted it was his weight that had stopped him getting in the pool during his school years.
He said: “In school I hated swimming because I was the fat kid. So I used to basically refuse to swim.

“When I found out about this I didn’t want to do it, and then I kind of said it’s about time I stopped saying no because of the way that I look and the way that I feel.
“This competition is kind of gonna be me versus me, I just want to show myself that Colson has no limits and he really is just gonna keep pushing it all the way.”
The Games continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV.
