I'm a Celebrity.. Get Me Out of Here! viewers have called out contestant Ruthie Henshall after she "cheated" during the live trial on Friday night.
The West End star was one of the first famous faces to take part in the live trial alongside Paralympian Hollie Arnold MBE.
The two women competed against Shane Richie and Jordan North to find as many gold coins in troughs full of grunge against the clock.
Hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly said the celebrities could only reach for the coins with their mouths, then sue their hands to place them in the baskets next to the troughs.
However, viewers spotted Ruthie sticking her hands in the grunge as well as her face once the time had started.
Eagled-eyed I'm A Celeb fans rushed to their keyboards to question if Ruthie had cheated during the gruesome task.
Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Ruthie Henshall cheated using her hand four times in the task."
A second added: "Ruthie little cheat get the VAR out she was using her hands."
A third person quipped: "s that Ruthie bird a cheat i saw her using her hands in that trial."
While a forth said: "Poor from Ruthie trying to cheat live on tv."
Ruthie's action didn't result in victory despite her claiming they had three coins at the end, the same as the boys team.
However, when Ant and Dec checked, the girls only had two gold coins in their basket.
The fact that the singing sensation appeared to lie to the Geordie duo didn't go down well with viewers.
One fan raged: "Love how Ruthie cheated by putting her hands into it and putting them in her mouth. Then tried to claim she got three. Cheater."
Another person tweeted: "Ruthie really just cheated and then lied to Ant and Dec on LIVE tv".
Meanwhile, there was further furore and cheat accusations as Jessica Plummer went up against AJ Pritchard in their part of the challenge.
The two had to put their head in a box of rats while their arms were locked in stocks, with the duo tasked with unscrewing coins which were near their hands.
But a terrified Jess was too scared to put her head in the box, forcing Ant and Dec to hurry her along as they were on a time limit with the live show.
With AJ already in place, the klaxon sounded, with a warden desperately trying to secure Jess' hands as she panicked about the rats.
This resulted in the EastEnders star taking part in the trial with her hands not firmly held in place, while AJ's hands were secure during the trial.
Fans once more flooded social media calling out Jess' unfair advantage in the challenge, with many calling for her to be "disqualified" as she "cheated".
