Declan Donnelly revealed that the EastEnders actress was less than happy with the arrival of Noel Edmonds during I'm A Celebrity last night.

The I'm A Celeb campmates received a shakeup in the Australian jungle last night after Deal Or No Deal's Noel Edmonds, 69, was announced as the 'camp emperor'.

The TV Presenter seemingly took his role very seriously, causing a divide in opinions amongst fans watching - and leaving campmate Rita Simons, 41, pretty unhappy.

Declan Donnelly revealed that she was one of a few celebrities unimpressed with the new ruling, and revealed: "John (Barrowman) has already started to crack, and Nick (Knowles) is biting his lip.

"Rita wasn’t happy yesterday down at the trial. It wasn’t in the show tonight but when we were filming the trial, Rita had a go didn’t she?

"Noel and Harry were kind of talking amongst themselves, and she went 'weren’t you two listening?!' And we were like “woaah.”’

The revelation comes after Noel 'hired' Harry Redknapp as his Personal Advisor.

Many fans of the show seemed to agree with Rita's lack of enthusiasm about Noel's arrival, and were quick to express their views on social media.

However, not everyone shared the same opinion; others were quite enjoying the arrival of the new Emperor.

Noel's full impact on the jungle will be unveiled as I'm A Celeb continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
