Many I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here viewers have been left angry after the British public voted Charlene White and Scarlette Douglas – two Black women – out of the jungle first.

Loose Women star Charlene was the first star to leave the jungle, making her departure on Friday.

Fans were then shocked by A Place In The Sun star Scarlette being voted next to leave on Monday. It was between her and Babatunde Aleshe to leave (although hosts Ant and Dec confirmed the names are read out ‘in no particular order’, meaning he didn’t necessarily receive the next lowest amount of votes).

Some have accused the voting public of racism.

One viewer wrote: ‘First two people voted out of #ImACeleb bright, intelligent likeable black women.’

Another said: ‘The first 2 out of I’m a Celebrity are black women. Hancock is still there. Be ashamed British public’.

‘People are so obviously racist. the first two people to leave are black women and in the odds one of the people most likely to leave, is a black man. im actually sick of this, theres never been a black winner either. this was supposed to be the year, with scarlette,’ one more said.

The first 2 out of I’m a Celebrity are black women.

Hancock is still there.

Be ashamed British public #ImACeleb

#ImACeleb A whole MATT HANCOCK is still in the jungle, the man was supposed to be in charge of your safety, he gambled with your lives, and selfishly put his own needs ahead of the will of the British public….but oh no, no, let’s get all the black women out first 🤮 ugh. Gross.

So two black women have left #ImACeleb , shows you just how racist this country is. Horrendous. Let me guess, will Baba be gone tomorrow?! Hate to be controversial but it needs to be said. Scarlette did NOT deserve to go.

Charlene…now Scarlette. Love Island. Strictly. Black women don’t stand a chance on reality TV. It just shows how racist & sexist this country is 😞#ImACeleb #imacelebrity #misogynoir

Another added: ‘If you still need proof that racism is very much alive and kicking in this country, two black women have now been consecutively voted out and the only black man in the jungle was in close danger of leaving. Still think we’re pulling the race card, boomers?’

Others have argued that race was likely not a factor in the stars’ departures.
