I'm A Celebrity fans figure out why Ant and Dec cover watches during trials

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! hosts Ant and Dec have been rumbled by fans over a strange, re-occurring detail in the Bushtucker trials. That’s right, I’m A Celeb viewers turned detective to solve one of the show’s greatest mysteries – what’s going on with their watches?

Eagle-eyed fans have noticed that during competitive trials, the faces of the Geordie duo’s watches are blacked out.

It’s a question that comes up every year, and one fan went straight to the horse’s mouth to ask why it happens.

Ant McPartlin, however, wisely handed over to the I’m A Celeb super-fans to answer one of the series’ long-running questions.

‘Is Ant’s watch covered because of cameras or because of the sun reflection?’ One fan asked, tagging the presenters in the tweet.

Ant gave a swift reply, opening up the floor to answers: ‘Who’s gonna explain?’

Luckily, regular viewers answered the question in droves, finally providing answers to the perplexing question.

‘So the camp mates can’t see the time (I think),’ one fan replied.

Another replied: ‘Just out of curiosity, why can’t [they] see what time it is?’

‘Because they are in the jungle,’ a veritable expert on the reality show explained. ‘They aren’t allowed anything that links them to the outside world ie phones and watches.’



You’ve got to admit – it does make sense. Even allowing the campmates to see what time it is in Australia would break the spell of the show, which does basically hinge on a bunch of celebrities going slowly stir crazy in the middle of a jungle Down Under.

We’ve got the re-cap of all of last night’s antics during the show – from Ian Wright lashing out, Caitlyn Jenner becoming camp leader and Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle talking to aliens.

See what we mean about stir crazy?

EastEnders actress and celebrity contestant Jacqueline Jossa has also finally broken her silence over her relationship with Dan Osbourne in a loved-up chat.

The scene comes amid rumours that she was allowed to leave Dan a voicemail after campmate Myles Stephenson ‘confirmed’ that her other half had cheated on her with Gabby Allen.

It was reported the Jacqueline even threatened to quit as she wanted to speak to her other half, but Dan has kept coy and said that people ‘shouldn’t believe everything they read.’

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! airs nightly from 9pm on ITV.
