I'm a Celeb viewers convinced Rita Simons knew she was leaving as she's set to appear in panto in Bournemouth on Saturday
Viewers were quick to point out that the former EastEnders actress' departure came just days before she was set to appear in Bournemouth's production of Sleeping Beauty.
One fan tweeted: "Hmm interesting. Rita out of #ImACeleb and starring in a pre booked panto on Saturday." Another chimed: "Rita’s in a panto this year tht opens on Saturday… coincidence she gets voted aff tnite?"
"Coincidence that Rita gets voted out tonight and she's due to open Bournemouth panto in 5 days? #ImACelebrity#ImACeleb," a third mocked.
However, the panto's website makes it clear to ticket-buyers that ex Brookside star Jennifer Ellison will be standing in for Rita until her I'm a Celeb duties are fulfilled.
