I'm a Celeb's Dec Donnelly mocks new fix claims
Dec Donnelly isn't taking the latest round of I'm a Celebrity fix claims very seriously at all – in fact, he can't stop laughing.
The latest in a seemingly-endless loop of fans complaining that the ITV show is rigged continued on Monday night (December 3) when Coronation Street actress Sair Khan lost the public vote head-to-head against Emily Atack.
This time, some fans felt that the fix was in because, either a) Sair's hair was curlier in her interview than in the jungle moments before, or b) she'd been given time to get a full face of makeup on while the other women didn't:
Why is it that Sair had wavy hair when she left but it had been straight when she was in the jungle???? Very suspicious (I still love the show)#imaceleb #conspiracy

No one else notice that sair had her hair done up and he face made up?? Must have told not to put her bag on so not to get suspicious but obv didn’t tell he to look natural #ImACeleb

In the space of 30 seconds, Sair managed to say goodbye to everyone, curl her hair & get from the depths of a jungle to a bridge 60ft in the air ...
But it's all 'Live' ladies & gents🙄#ImACeleb

This rumour seemed to travel fast enough that Dec Donnelly responded on Twitter to totally mock any suggestion that there was any rigging going on with the voting.
'Done her hair? You're clutching at straws now,' he promised conspiracy theorists.
Done her hair? You’re clutching at straws now! 😂 #ImACeleb https://t.co/A8pJb9xosJ

Earlier in the show, Dec had laughed off the previous night's theory that Malique Thompson-Dwyer was wearing his backpack at the time of his eviction because he'd been told ahead of time.
When Holly plugged Monday night's voting numbers, Dec quipped: "Well, if the conspiracy theories are anything to go by, whoever's got their backpack on [is going]!"
We won't even get into the theories that Noel Edmonds was secretly forced off the show last week because of his long-running feud with Holly...
I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! continues on Tuesday (December 4) at 9pm on ITV, followed directly after by Extra Camp over on ITV2.
