I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here returned to screens last night, with celebrities heading to a Welsh castle instead of the usual Australian location.

But some fans couldn’t help but notice hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly kept making a mistake when it came to campmate Giovanna Fletcher.

As the author, podcast host and Baby Club presenter took on the first Bushtucker Trial with the other celebrities, Ant and Dec shouted words of encouragement at Gi.

But fans noticed they kept pronouncing her name wrong.

One fan tweeted: “Hi, absolutely loving the show so far but can Ant and Dec please learn how to pronounce Gi’s name correctly please? It is Gi Van Na, the o isn’t pronounced and it is like van not varn. Or just say Gi.”

Another wrote: “Dear @antanddec Loving the show, but it’s annoying me how you pronounce @MrsGiFletcher name. It’s “Gee-Vanna” not “Geo-Varna” Thanks!”

The first challenge, Gates To Hell, saw all celebrities put in their own cages and having to move a star from one side to the other while critters including meal worms, crickets and cockroaches fell on them.

Gi impressed viewers right at the start of the show when she became the first celebrity to abseil down the cliff edge to retrieve two backpacks before heading to camp.

Unfortunately Radio 1 DJ Jordan North didn’t have such a easy time when his fear of heights caused him to throw up before taking on the challenge.

It meant Jordan got selected by viewers to take on a Bushtucker Trial called The Viper Vault, alongside EastEnders star Shane Richie.

Fans can watch the duo get buried in a coffin full of snakes when the show returns tonight.

I’m a Celebrity continues tonight (November 16) at 9pm on ITV.
