The ex-campmate revealed that some I'm A Celeb scenes are set up - but ITV deny her claims.

We don't mean to be dramatic, but Rebekah Vardy may have just ruined our entire lives by claiming that one of our fave shows I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! is set up.

The former contestant, 36, who appeared on last year's series, has sensationally claimed that many of the scenes are shot twice, and that producers tell campmates what to discuss for the camera.

When asked by heat magazine what surprised her about the show, she said: "How edited it is, even down to us walking to the trials. We had to do that walk three or four times."

And when questioned about whether the camp is real, she continued: "If you’re stood where the phone box is and look straight out, it’s all fake.

"I lost count of how many cameras there are. Above your head, the cameras are on zipwires, so they follow you everywhere! It is crazy, it’s like Big Brother – you’re watched and listened to 24 hours a day."

Responding to her claims, an ITV spokesperson told Heart: "What viewers see on screen is a fair and accurate representation of life in camp."

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! kicked off last Sunday (18 November), and is being hosted by Dec Donnelly and Holly Willoughby.

Holly, who is standing in for Ant McPartlin after his rehab admission earlier this year, has received mixed reviews from viewers.

Due to her lukewarm perception, bookies earlier this week slashed odds on her quitting the show.

Paddy Power are now offering 16/1 odds on her walking out (a fall from the previous 25/1) - with Extra Camp host Scarlett Moffatt's odds to step into the role at 20/1.

Last night's episode of I'm A Celeb saw The Chase star Anne Hegerty quit the second Bushtucker trial after only scoring two stars for her campmates.

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight at 9PM on ITV.
