‘I haven’t got a clue who they are’: I’m A Celebrity viewers disappointed by this year’s lineup as they claim Ant and Dec are the most famous people on the show

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2021 kicked off on Sunday with nail-biting challenges and a new cohort of famous faces.  

But viewers were left unimpressed by this year’s lineup, which includes Richard Madeley, Frankie Bridge, Naughty Boy, Arlene Phillips, David Ginola, Danny Miller, Snoochie Shy, Kadeena Cox, Matty Lee, and Louise Minchin. 

Many took to Twitter to vent their frustrations, stating that they had ‘no idea’ who the contestants were and that Ant and Dec were the ‘only celebrities’ on the show.

One disgruntled fan wrote: ‘Is it just me or does anyone else think these celebrities are getting worse each year?’ 

Another echoed: ‘I’m a celebrity, get me out of here – Is it just me or does anyone else think these celebrities are getting worse each year?’ 

A third person added: ‘Only celebrities this year are ant & dec apparently,’ while another wrote: ‘I haven’t a clue who these celebrities are like…’ 

Another viewer joked: ‘Brave move from I’m A Celeb to decide not to get any actual celebrities this year…’ 








Fan favourites: Many took to Twitter to vent their frustrations, stating that they had 'no idea' who the contestants were and that Ant and Dec were the 'only celebrities' on the show

The launch of this year’s I’m A Celeb series saw Snoochie and Louise win the terrifying plank challenge. 

The pair and some of their fellow celebrities had to take it in pairs to walk across a rig in the Walk The Plank task in order to win keys to have access to the main camp in the Castle and to eat that night.

After the task the radio DJ  gave Louise an emotional hug as Ant and Dec revealed that she would be joining Louise on the red team.

Explaining the challenge before they started host Declan Donnelly said: ‘The winning team will get to pick which two celebrities from the other group will represent them in the next challenge.’

Co-host Ant McPartlin said: ‘The team that wins the keys will have access to the main camp in the Castle, where you will get a bed, and you will eat tonight. 

‘Whilst the losers will be banished to the Castle Clink and be on basic rations. Not the place you want to be.’ 

Once the gameplay was established they all turned to look at the terrifying planks.

Dec said: ‘In front of you are two planks, which get narrower as you progress out over the quarry. 

‘You must step over the gaps in the planks and make your way to the yellow gameplay zone at the end, which is 213 feet above the lake. Once you are both there, the game will begin.’

Ant said: ‘Between the planks is a stack of lights. The red lights will start to flash and when the green light comes on, you must press the button with your foot. The first celebrity to hit their button will win and the loser will be dropped from their plank.’








Here we go: Snoochie looked terrified as she prepared to take on the challenge

First up was Louise vs Danny, they walked to the start of their planks and Ant and Dec asked them how they were feeling.

Louise looked at her plank and said: ‘I can’t think of many things worse than this right now, it’s terrifying.’

Danny sarcastically said ‘I can’t wait’, Ant turned to Dec and said ‘A little bit sarcastic there’, Dec smiled and said ‘little bit.’

So scared: It had all proved too much for Snoochie as she found herself screaming in terror while hanging above an abandoned quarry

Once Louise and Danny started to play their game the infamous ‘plank wobble’ returned as they tried to keep their balance 213 feet above the quarry lake.

They both reached the end of their planks and anxiously waited for the green light to appear.

The green light appeared and both Danny and Louise pressed their foot down on the buzzer, it turned out Louise completed the challenge in the quickest time and Danny’s plank dropped and he was left dangling in the air.

 Ant and Dec revealed that Louise would now be the first member of the red team and Danny would be the first member of the yellow team.

Next up were Snoochie and Naughty Boy who both walked to the end of their planks, Snoochie’s plank really wobbled as she reached the end.

However, Snoochie got more than she bargained for when her plank started to wobble as soon as she stepped on, prompting her to shout: ‘I’m gonna drop!’

The light turned green and Snoochie screamed as she pressed her buzzer. 

It turned out she was the quickest so Naughty Boy’s plank dropped and he was left dangling in the air. 

Ant told the yellow team that meant they’d have David Ginola and Arlene Phillips join them. Football fan Danny was happy about that ‘David Ginola, I absolutely love him, I can’t wait to meet him.’

Terrified: Next up were Snoochie and Naughty Boy who both walked to the end of their planks, Snoochie's plank really wobbled as she reached the end

 It was also announced that Naughty Boy would join Danny on the yellow team.

Once the show hosts told Louise and Snoochie that as winners they got to choose two celebrities from the other group to join them.

The pair decided on Matty and Kadeena, Louise said ‘We’re going with Matty Lee and Kadeena Cox because you cannot go against gold medalists in our opinion.’

The celebs were taken from Gwrych Castle, to secluded field near Caernarfon, a distance of around 40 miles. 

Co-host Ant McPartlin said of the challenge: ‘This year is going to be tougher than ever, all the celebrities will face grueling challenges on their way to the castle to win the keys to the Castle.’ 

Declan Donnelly added: ‘And you will all face the first challenge, but not as a team. Instead, you will be going head to head. In this first challenge Louise [Minchin] you will face Danny [Miller] and Naughty Boy you will face Snoochie.’ 

Louise Minchin and Danny Miller were the first up for the task, with Dec saying: ‘You can both make your way along the plank and into the yellow game play zone.’

‘Come on girl you got this man,’ Danny said to Louise.

‘It’s amazing how suddenly walking in a straight line get so much harder, Dec remarked as he watched the stars struggle through the challenge.  

‘You’re in the game play zone. Remember when you see the light turn green that’s when you hit the button in front of you with your feet,’ Dec said.

‘Oh my God!’ Snoochie screamed as she started to wobble again with Ant saying: ‘Oh she’s going’.  

High up: Ant said of the challenge: 'This year is going to be tougher than ever, all the celebrities will face grueling challenges on their way to the castle to win the keys to the Castle'
