Ruthie Henshall and Russell Watson enter I'm a Celebrity castle, but not everyone is happy

The new arrivals excelled in their inaugural trial, but Shane and Vernon were wary of them.

Ruthie Henshall and Russell Watson entered Gwrych Castle to join the I'm a Celebrity 2020 line-up, but did they inadvertently also bring the first hint of tension to the harmonious camp?


The duo excelled in their first Bushtucker Trial, earning a luxurious 11 stars for the camp when they excelled in the Stage Fright trial.

Ruthie said: "I'm absolutely thrilled we got 11 stars. That was a super duper throoper of a..."

Russell responded: "I was just expecting one nasty thing but they kept coming and coming."

Ruthie added: "I'm so excited to get into the castle and really look forward to saying hello to everyone and getting to know them."

However, Vernon Kay and Shane Richie were grumbling about the new additions.

Vernon said: "I've got mixed emotions at the moment. It moves the dimensions. It moves the dynamics about slightly."

He added: "I would be genuinely upset if this dynamic changes."

Shane replied: "There's 10 of us now, we've been together four days. We know each other really well. We're eating, sleeping, laughing, crying together and for another two people to come in you're always frightened. It's going to change the dynamics and we were kind of concerned about that."

Meanwhile, there is a growing chorus questioning Bev Callard and her veganism. Or should that be her vaguely-eat-anythingism.

Bev did look longingly at the "meaty" oxtail the new arrivals won in the trial.

Meanwhile, poor Jordan North will be doing his fifth trial when he once again lost the public vote and will be attempting to take the long walk to 10 stars-dom, the camp hopes, in The Trapped Door during tomorrow's episode.

Do you think I'm a Celebrity should remain at the castle permanently or return to the Australian jungle? Vote in the poll.

I'm a Celebrity returns to ITV on Thursday night.
