I’m A Celebrity is again and followers have been questioning why the Saturday episodes have taken a barely totally different format this 12 months. For the primary time, the Saturday episodes might be round-ups of one of the best bits from all through the week, the place followers will get to see some unique content material. Yesterday’s episode is the primary of the round-up episodes, and Ant and Dec have been speaking followers by bathe scenes, A-list showbiz exclusives and way more.
Fans didn’t take flippantly to the information, with one fan saying on Twitter: “Me getting excited for the best time of the day and then realising it’s not a proper episode.”
Another viewer mentioned: “Me sat at home watching this confusing episode #ImACeleb.”
Earlier in 2020 ITV confirmed the Saturday shake-up, saying the Saturday episodes will encompass “the very best of the camp action from that week including unseen footage”.
The episode featured some highlights from all through the week, together with Jordan North’s first trial, the Viper Vault.
One fan mentioned: “Well that’s disappointing…. was looking forward to tonight’s live episode #ImACeleb”

But the collection has solely been airing for a short time, and viewers are eager to see extra motion slightly than a round-up episode.
The official Twitter account for I’m A Celebrity had warned followers forward of the episode on Saturday, saying: “Watching @jordannorth1 go from vomit to victory in 6 short days. We’re rounding up an epic first week in the Castle at 8.45pm on @itv, @wearestv and @itvhub #ImACeleb.”

There might be some contemporary content material within the Saturday episodes as ITV has promised to point out some unique content material, which has been saved again from the weekly episodes.
But viewers are nonetheless curious to know why the change has been put in place for the primary time this 12 months, with one saying: “We’re having the same conversation! They did 7 days a week in Australia, why less here?”
Another fan mentioned: “Can you tell us why we’re watching what we’ve already seen and why they’re not live. They’ve NEVER not been live.”
Some viewers have gone so far as to boycott the present, with one saying they’d “turned it off” for the primary time following the information it could be a recap episode.

According to Telly Mix: “The Saturday present change follows the celebs being advised to change their sleeping habits to permit the present to movie within the UK slightly then Australia, the place there’s a 12 hour time distinction. [sic]”
However this has not been confirmed by ITV or the creators of the collection. Contestant AJ Pritchard was heard saying on a podcast how the paths have been filmed “at 1am”, so they’d been advised to change their sleeping patterns to accommodate.
The present will revert again to regular on Sundays, with the reside present resuming.
The information might have come out of the blue for some, however the shake-up had been introduced earlier in November by ITV.
One fan posted a photograph on Twitter which confirmed a person along with his head in his arms, saying: “Me watching the British public make up conspiracy theories about crew getting covid when they literally announced WEEKS ago Saturday night shows would be highlight reels #ImACeleb.”
Viewers have been unable to get their heads across the change, with many saying they have been “disappointed” to see it was a roundup from all through the week.
Another fan mentioned: ” What the hell is tonight’s episode of #ImACeleb it’s only been a week we don’t need highlights already!!!”
This 12 months’s season has gone down in historical past because it moved to Wales for the primary time, and the beautiful Gwrych Castle has turn out to be the brand new residence for campmates.
