I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers were left baffled as Russell Watson managed to convince his co-stars that William Shakespeare’s real name was ‘Walter’.

Yes, seriously.

The singer was taking part in a secret challenge with fellow newcomer Ruthie Henshall, and had to make sure the campmates gave the wrong answer to the Castle Coin challenge.

The question they were asked was: ‘What was the first name of Shakespeare when he was baptised? A – William or B – Walter?’

Not skipping a beat, the 53-year-old set about insisting that William is the wrong answer.

Completely deadpan, he stated: ‘I know for a fact, it’s definitely Walter.’


William Shakespeare? Never heard of him…

The answer was obviously wrong, which meant Shane Richie and Beverley Callard couldn’t bring home an offering of custard creams, leaving the gang gutted.

Fans watching on from home couldn’t get enough of the scenes, questioning how Giovanna Fletcher, Vernon Kay and co didn’t even question Russell’s answer.

A Twitter user questioned: ‘Are they all really that gullible that they believed Ruthie and Russell that William Shakespeare’s name when he got baptised was “Walter”?






‘Its like the most obvious question ever. Haha  #ImACeleb #imacelebrity.’

‘Walter Shakespeare. Amazed how not one camp mate questioned that #ImACeleb,’ another agreed.

One commented: ‘How was that so easy to convince them all that Walter Shakespeare was his name, idiots  #ImACeleb.’

‘Omg funniest thing ever, didn’t take too much convincing, methinks! #ImACeleb,’ a follower said.

EastEnders’ Danny Hatchard also got in on the action, adding: ‘How did they fall for Walter! F**king WALTER!! #ImACeleb.’

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues daily, at 9pm, on ITV.
