The first four contestants to be voted out of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! have all been women.
Broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire and Coronation Street actor Beverley Callard followed musical theatre star Ruthie Henshall and Paralympian Hollie Arnold out of the castle.
Just two women, singer Jessica Plummer and presenter Giovanna Fletcher, remain in the competition along with all six men who initially entered.
The unique series – filmed in Wales rather than Australia owing to travel restrictions – has been beset by problems.
As well as losing two thirds of their female contestants, the show was investigated by police over concerns that live insects used in bushtucker trials would escape into the Welsh countryside.
Now some people are putting down viewers' voting decisions to sexism and ageism. Every woman over the age of 50 has now left the competition.
It sucks that all of the women are being voted out... #ImACeleb — Carrie Hope Fletcher (@Carrie Hope Fletcher)
