Viewers Slam "Boring" Opening Task
I'm A Celebrity fans have taken to social media to express their disappointment with the opening episode of the show. As Ant and Dec returned to the jungle with a fresh batch of celebrities, viewers tuned in to see the famous faces face their fears. However, the show's attempts to thrill the audience fell flat, with many branding the opening task as "boring".
Same Old Challenge
During the launch show, the celebrities were split into groups and faced different challenges. While some stars parachuted from 15,000 feet, others were made to walk a shaky plank 100m above the ground. However, fans were quick to point out that this particular challenge has been a staple of the show for years. Many viewers expressed their desire for I'm A Celebrity producers to come up with new and exciting ideas.
Fans Call for Change
Writing on social media, one viewer said, "Always find the first walking trial boring - sorry. This building challenge they do is so predictable and boring. Same every year." Another echoed this sentiment, stating, "They do this height challenge every year for the first episode, and they're always so boring! ITV really milks it with the dramatic shots, slow mos & movie music... Like chill it ain't a Christopher Nolan film." Fans are clearly eager for a change in the show's format.
What's Next for I'm A Celebrity?
As the show continues tonight at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX, fans will be hoping for a shake-up in the challenges and a fresh approach to captivate their attention. With the demand for new ideas growing, it remains to be seen how I'm A Celebrity producers will respond to the viewers' feedback.
