I’M A Celebrity fans were left stunned as popular campmate Scarlette Douglas was voted out of the jungle – with some claiming the result was “fixed”.
Scarlette was in the bottom two with her best mate in the jungle, Babatunde Aléshé.
The TV presenter was visibly shocked by her early exit – and promptly burst into tears.
After meeting hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly on the other side of the bridge, Scarlette admitted: “I’m absolutely gutted.
“I’m not even going to lie about it. I know some people wanted to leave, but I said ‘I’m not ready to go yet’.
“Those people are amazing and the jungle is incredible.”
Despite I’m A Celebrity having a public vote to give viewers control over who they want to stay or go, some fans accused the result of being “fixed”.
Others believed the controversial characters like Matt Hancock and Boy George were being kept in to cause trouble.
One furious viewer insisted: “This vote has got to be a fix, how are two of the funniest, happiest personalities in the camp up for vote like that???”
Another added: “What!….no wayyyyyy!!!!!! It’s a fix!!”
Someone else asked: “Scarlett over Chris and Boy George ? Is this a fix?”
Another added: “Imo in #ImACeleb people want to see fireworks and that is why the controversial celebs remain in camp as much as they’re not liked. Scarlette actively diffused flash points between Matt and BG, I think that’s why she went.”
An I’m A Celebrity spokesman refused to comment.
“I’m totally surprised,” Boy George was heard saying in camp.
Hugging teary Scarlette, Owen told her: “I’m so proud of you.”
Scarlette is the second person to leave I’m A Celebrity following Charlene White’s exit on Friday night.
Speaking about conquering her fears in the jungle, Scarlette – who was terrified of spiders – said: “There was a point when there was a spider in the RV and I was looking at it and literally Mike touched it and it ran down and I was gone.
“I was screaming. Yeah I cried guys. But now there was another spider in the RV and I was helping Mike get it out and it was huge so I feel like I have become one with spiders now.”
Asked about cooking in camp, which saw her clash with Charlene, Scarlette said: “I think because my mum is Jamaican and obviously as Charlene she is a Jamaican mum and we cook in the kitchen and we know what we are doing so we are like, ‘stay out of our kitchen!’
“Then you just want to make sure you have good meals for everyone.
“It does get quite difficult especially when people are saying they want to do it when they can’t really cook.”
As Ant and Dec ended their interview, Ant told her: “They’re really going to miss you in camp.”
Scarlette replied: “Oh don’t, you’ll have me crying again. I’m really going to miss them.”
She held back tears as she pledged her support for Babatunde to win.
Scarlette explained: “We had a really good brotherly, sisterly bond. I feel like he’s got to do it for the two of us now, so I’m going to be rooting for him.”
Coronation Street’s Sue Cleaver had been odds-on at 2/5 to be sent home next, with Scarlette following closely behind at 3/1, according to Ladbrokes.
Serving MP Matt Hancock was the favourite to leave first before the show began.
But he’s now at 8/1 to win I’m A Celebrity after appearing to win the public’s support.
