The all star cast of I'm A Celebrity was rocked after learning that two campmates face elimination just three days into the series.
The bombshell move is a first for the hit ITV show, which has only ever previously seen first eliminations at the beginning of week two.
And the announcement on Thursday night (April 27) that a pair of celebs would soon be given the boot came before Andy Whyment – Coronation Street's Kirk Sutherland – had even spent a full day in the main camp.

Ant McPartlin delivered the shock news, revealing: "Big news because it’s time for the very first survival trial. The losing pair will be leaving camp forever."
As the campmates gasped in shock, sidekick Declan Donnelly added: "The stakes couldn’t be higher on this one. Because the losing pair will head home for good."
A show insider told the Mirror: "This was a huge shock as they all knew the normal format and were just getting settled. Someone could leave having barely been there."
The drama didn't end there on Thursday, meanwhile, after the camp was plunged into chaos following a major contraband reveal.

This prompted a chain reaction after Gillian was the first to confess to sneaking in prohibited items.
The 63-year-old revealed she had mints and tea bags which left her campmates utterly stunned.
