The viewing figures for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2023 has been disclosed, and there has been a significant drop since last year.
During the broadcast on Sunday night, high-profile personalities like as Nigel Farage, Jamie Lynn Spears, Grace Dent, and Josie Gibson joined camp after completing dangerous tasks.
The inclusion of former Ukip leader Farage in the cast has sparked outrage from the start, with the politician apparently receiving a salary of £1.5 million, more than three times that of Matt Hancock for the 2022 season.
When examining the amount of viewers that turned in to watch on ITV1, it appears that the expectation that Farage’s controversial casting would bring in more viewers was not effective.
According to overnight numbers, an average of seven million viewers watched the return of I’m A Celebrity on Sunday night.
The opening episode of the 23rd series drew a high audience of 7.8 million viewers, according to ITV.
According to ITV overnight statistics, the 2022 debut had an average audience of 9.1 million.
