Tommy Fury’s ‘mind boggling’ I’m A Celeb post confuses fans

We have questions

Love Island's Tommy Fury I'm A Celeb post

Like the actual entire nation, we couldn't be more chuffed I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! is finally back on our tellyboxes. Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly's witty one-liners? Check. Beverley Callard losing her sh*t in a Bushtucker Trial? Check. Jordan North's bagel repeating on him in the most meme-worthy of scenes? You betcha.

And it seems Love Island star Tommy Fury shares our excitement for the new series, too; with him taking to Instagram as he settled down for a viewing.

Yep - Tommy's already hooked on the show, and asked followers to vote on whether they prefer I'm A Celeb's usual setting of the Austalian jungle or Gwrych Castle in Wales.

A vote that sparked a LOT of confusion.

Taking to Instagram Stories, Tommy asked 'Australia or Wales?' alongside a photo of those infamous I'm A Celeb opening titles.

The premise seemed simple; this was Tommy's bid to find out whether followers would rather the show be set in Australia or Wales.

The execution? Not quite so simple.

See, the options Tommy provided followers were 'Yes' or 'No'. Australia or Wales? Yes or no?

The 'mind boggling' poll quickly went viral, with one Twitter user hilariously commenting 'Do you want a tea or a coffee? Yes please.'

Ah, office kitchen banter. We've missed that.

Another pointed out, 'at least 4 people managed to answer the question... that's also worrying.'

'His mind...too powerful,' claimed another.

Beverley Callard

Beverley Callard has played Coronation Street icon Liz McDonald on and off for more than 30 years but she says the biggest misconception about her is that she's as glamorous as her on-screen character. "I hate being dressed up and I don't care if my nails break either! I am quite at home in comfy baggy clothes," she says.

Quick to realise the error of his ways, Tommy followed up with an amended post saying, 'Yeah I'm aware the poll makes no sense.'


This all comes following reports familiar faces Vicky Pattison and Joey Essex could be set to return to I'm a Celeb.

Speaking to The Sun, a telly source said, "ITV producers love having a trick or two up their sleeve.

"What better way to celebrate 20 series of the show than getting some of the stars of yesteryear to take part in some way?

"They told them they had to spend some time isolating, just like this year’s contestants have done, ahead of being taken up to Wales.

"There’s even a chance they’ll isolate, travel to Wales, and not even get used.

"But it’s three great options for producers to have in the locker."
