I’m A Celebrity: Joe’s Out For The Count – So Are Ratings

Joe bugner3Joe Bugner’s loss to fellow contestant Stuart Manning has publicity chiefs in a bit of a panic.

He was voted by the public to take part in the Jungle Jail task with either him or the former Hollyoaks star destined to leave if they were the loser. Unfortunately, he was the too slow and so he had to go.

This has left ITV bosses in a bit of a tizzy as Joe was one of their last remaining audience draws. Since Jordan’s untimely exit last week, ratings have already plummeted by two million; Joe leaving was the last thing bosses wanted.

A show source said, “He has been the centre of attention and has helped to create quite a few arguments. Stuart’s a nice guy but is seriously dull.

“They can’t have the interesting people picked off. Ratings might tumble even further.”

Joe was none too pleased about packing his bags either, “I didn’t want to go. I wanted to stay till the end.

“I’ve had a wonderful time. I knew from the word go that the youth would take over here and I’m happy for Stuart.”
