The I’m A Celeb stars have taken part in a number of Bushtucker trials since the series kicked off earlier this month to win food for camp.
However, fans have noted that so far, it’s only been men who have been voted in by the public to take part in the horror trials, with the women only included for the in-camp challenges.
Taking to Twitter to complain, one viewer said: “Why are no girls doing any trials? Come on, us women rock!”
Another chimed in: “No women are doing any trials this year?” as a third hit out: “NO WOMEN AGAIN?!”
“Why are none of the women being voted for trials this year?” a fourth added, as a fifth concluded: “Time for women to do a trial.”
So far, the trials have been dominated by MP Matt Hancock, with the former Health Secretary taking part in six trials in a row.
Last night, Boy George, Babatunde Aleshe and Chris Moyles took on the Angel of Agony trial as Matt, 44, was given a break.
However, the female campmates have only been asked to take part in Meals On Wheels – previously known as the Dingo Dollar – challenge.
The women were last seen taking part in the trials on their entry to camp – with Olivia Attwood and Scarlette Douglas taking part as the jungle VIPs.
It comes after Boy George, Chris Moyles and Babatundé Aléshé left campmates starving with a Bushtucker Trial flop.
In the Angel of Agony trial, they were in cages inside a statue modelled on the Angel of the North.
The challenge was a nod to the Geordie roots of presenting duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
Ant, 46, explained: “This is the Angel of Agony. We’re feeling very at home because it’s loosely based on the legendary Geordie landmark, the Angel of the North.
“You’ll each take a position within the Angel and you’ve got to work together as a team to get the stars from the bottom to the top.
“The celebrity at the bottom gets the stars from the hell holes and passes them to the celebrity in the middle.
“The celebrity in the middle then gets the stars through the mesh to the celebrity at the top. The celebrity at the top must then use their magnet to move the stars into the wings.”
Boy George began chanting while navigating a box full of critters to find a star before handing it to Babatunde, who apologised profusely for dropping it.
As he struggled, Ant exclaimed: “The nation holds its breath!” as Boy George moaned: “They have to get to the top or we’re all going to go hungry!”
Later in the Bush Telegraph, he said: “I definitely feel I let the team down. I just couldn’t get the hang of the trial today.”
Boy George said: “I was proud of myself for overcoming my terror. Then I wanted to cry after.”
The failed trial meant the camp had to make do with a measly meal and basic rations of rice and beans after indulging in octopus and camel shoulder over the past week.
