Fans take to Twitter to slam I’m A Celebrity over lacklustre line-up of contestants 

‘How embarrassing with these low budget celebs. They don’t even know each other!’ Fans take to Twitter to slam I’m A Celebrity over lacklustre line-up of contestants

The line up of celebrities appearing on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! Australia entered the jungle on Sunday night. 

And fans at home were less than impressed, taking to Twitter in droves to complain about the lacklustre pedigree of this season’s contestants. 

Among those appearing this year are former The Bigger Loser host Ajay Rochester, Gogglebox duo Angie Kent and Yvie Jones, politicians Jacqui Lambie and Sam Dastyari, and AFL legend Dermott Brereton.

Also in the jungle are Love Island’s Justin Lacko, MasterChef’s Justine Schofield, former X-Factor host Luke Jacobz, ABC presenter Natasha Exelby, actor Tahir Bilgic and entertainment reporter Richard Reid.

The less than stellar selection of media personalities were forced to introduce themselves to one another at the start of the show. 

Some contestants appeared to have never heard of one another, with Dermott Brereton seemingly to be the most baffled by the identities of his camp mates.

Another hoped some fairly bigger names would show up, Tweeting:  ‘Wait this is all of them? No Hemsworth?’ 

Yet one more viewer Tweeted: ‘Jebus! They’re scraping the bottom of the barrel this time round’. 

However some fans said they’d stick with the show no matter what, with one writing:  ‘So I’ve watched #ImACelebrityAU every season…this one seems to be scraping that barrel… imma still watch though!’
