Upset I’m A Celebrity viewers watched Thursday’s show full of regret at the realisation that the ‘real winner’ won’t be in the final, begging bosses to bring him back.
Before the lineup for the new series had even been confirmed, bookies were tipping Olympic legend Mo Farah to win and, while he faded into the background slightly as the weeks went on, it still came as a shock to many that he got the boot in 5th place alongside AJ Pritchard in Wednesday’s double eviction.
His departure came after Mo had been TV gold with his karaoke in The Castle Inn, his constant squealing during the Game of Groans trial and his impressions of Phil Mitchell.
And, watching him in action on Thursday, in recorded footage before he left, I’m A Celebrity viewers were quick to concede he should have been in the final.
One tweeted: “Mo Farah is the real winner of im a celeb this year in my eyes,” and another reacted: “Miss @Mo_Farah so much.”
Another posted: “So sad that Mo farah is not in final 4! Ffs what’s wrong with British public” and a fourth predicted that had the show been a bit longer, the former Great North Run winner might have triumphed.
They tweeted: “Loved @Mo_Farah he was just coming out of his shell, one more week and he would of won the show.”
And urging producers to bring him back, another fan pleaded: ” @Mo_Farah please get him back in the castle”
