I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! fans have been divided over the new series and it's only been back for a matter of days.

The series had some big signings this year with the likes of This Morning's Josie Gibson, JLS star Marvin Humes and the shocking appearance of Nigel Farage. But despite a big line-up, it's still been hit with a lot of backlash.

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have returned to front their popular ITV show as celebrities head Down Under and complete gruelling trials to win food for camp. And while fans are thrilled to see the beloved duo return to screens, it's not stopped frustrations online.

Ant and Dec
I'm A Celeb has been hit with a wave a controversy so far

The dynamic duo always head back to Australia in November as viewers at home tune to watch the thrilling competition in the run-up to the festive season. And while millions are still tuning in to watch the beloved show, it's not stopped the online fury.

So as another series rolls around, we've looked at the controversy facing the new show in the first few days alone.

Complaints soar

Nigel Farage
Complaints have shot up over Farage's stint

Nigel Farage's signing sparked a lot of complaints from I'm A Celeb viewers, perhaps more so than Matt Hancock's appearance last year. The Brexiteer has kicked off an online boycott after he joined the fellow celebrities in the Jungle.

It was also reported that Farage has been paid £1.5million for the gig, which has only sparked further complaints. In fact, lots of viewers have claimed they'll take their complaints to Ofcom, which also happened with Hancock last year.

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, fans have shared their frustrations as one user wrote: "Sam Thompson making me want to watch I'm A Celeb but I don't want to see Nigel Farage." Another added: "We need to boycott I'm A Celeb and just not vote for Nigel Farage to do anything and then vote him out as soon as we can."

Drop in viewers

I'm A Celeb
Viewers have dropped by 2million compared to last year

The launch of I'm A Celebrity saw a drop in ratings compared to the year prior. On average it had a viewership of 7million for the launch, though the year prior was 9million.

The drop follows fans' call for a boycott following a double controversial signing of Nigel Farage and Jamie Lynn Spears.

However, despite a drop compared to the previous year, it still ranks as the fourth highest I'm A Celebrity launch. I'm A Celeb also became ITV's biggest launch of the year and had a whopping 1.4million viewers aged 16-34.

Bare bum

Nigel flashed his bum in the shower

Nigel Farage made the ultimate shocker on I'm A Celebrity when he stripped completely nude in the shower. Most of the time, campers will shower in their underwear, but Farage ditched all the clothes.

It was an utter shocker for This Morning's Josie Gibson who walked through the jungle only to be greeted by a mooning Farage. She quickly turned around and ran back to camp before heading to the Bush Telegraph.

She said: "Freaking hell! I wasn’t expecting to see Nigel Farage’s bottom so soon! But, I’ve seen worse. No, I haven’t. I haven’t! Fair play to him. He’s not shy, he just gets on in there. At least he’s clean."

Viewers were floored after the exposed behind as one user wrote on X: "No gruesome Bushtucker Trial will come close to the sight of Nigel Farage's naked bum in the shower."

Bonds and feuds

I'm A Celeb
Marvin and Sam have been bonding already

Some of the campers are starting to bond after being in the jungle together for a few days. Sam Thompson was taught how to perform to some of JLS' hit tracks by his fellow camper Marvin Humes.

Meanwhile, Fred Sirieix and Nigel don't appear to be getting on too well after a heated discussion on Brexit started brewing. While it's only days in, things are bound to get more intense - but relationships will continue to build in the jungle too.
