I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! always offers up some surprises, but a quiz question has left both campmates and those watching along at home scratching their heads.
While they passed that with flying colours, they came unstuck when they were presented with the one question that stood between them, eight brownies, and the result of the England v Iran match in the World Cup.
As the phone rang, tension spread throughout the camp as they knew how close they were to the treats.
‘G’day celebrities. Which of the following had the highest number of UK viewers?,’ they were asked.
Their options were the 2020 Mens Euro Final, the 2022 Women’s Euro Final or the Queen’s Funeral.

As the group debated the possible answer together, there seemed to be a consensus that the funeral was the correct answer.
As Boy George said: ‘If more people watched the football than the Queen’s funeral, I will be very depressed’.
The news was broken that they were very wrong, with no-one more heartbroken than Owen, who had clearly been holding out for the potential of more food.

‘I’m a simple man, my life is four F’s,’ he later told the Bush Telegraph.
‘Friends, family, football, food. This place has taken all of those away.’
Clearly as confused as the celebrities were those watching along at home, who were genuinely not convinced about the answer.
The 2020 Euro Men’s Final drew in 31million viewers, while the Queen’s funeral had 29million viewers and the 2020 Euro Women’s Final had 17million (in the UK).

However, others had an issue with the question being asked at all, saying that it was too soon to even be contemplating asking this so soon after the Queen’s death.
Elsewhere during the episode, Boy George became the fourth campmate eliminated.
‘I am sort of ready, I’ve had an amazing time, I’ve done a lot of things I never thought I’d do,’ he told Ant and Dec once he’d left the jungle.
