It feels like we've just had non-stop drama ever since I'm A Celeb finally graced our screens again for the latest series.

From Grace Dent's shock departure and Nella Rose and Fred Sirieix's clash to Marvin Hulme's rule-breaking and Jamie Lynn Spears' abrupt quitting - we've had enough bombshell revelations and jungle chaos to last us months.

And the latest drama Down Under surrounds the likes of Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson and former professional boxer, Tony Bellew, who ITV viewers believe have some pretty palpable 'tension' between them.

I'm A Celeb viewers seem to be under the impression that Tony is growing more and more frustrated with his campmate Sam after a series of interactions between the pair.

Whether it was Sam fake boxing Tony, tickling him with a piece of grass while he tried to meditate or even slapping him in the face to swat away a mosquito - it's clear fans definitely have their own ideas about the pair's dynamic.

One, X, formerly Twitter, user wondered: "What's the odds on Tony Bellew sparking Sam Thompson out before the end of I'm A Celeb?"

A second tweeted: "Sam Thompson smacking Tony Bellew. He’s lucky he’s still breathing."

"That Sam is getting a bit cheeky now with Tony," claimed a third, while a fourth joked: "Tony's face when Sam slapped him to get the mosquito yesterday at Kevs ice-cream van had me in stitches. Sam was VERY close to his first KO."

Others, however, seemed to absolutely love Sam and Tony's dynamic with many comparing their relationship to other iconic duos; Donkey and Shrek, Scrappy Doo and Scooby Doo as well as Buddy the Elf and Michael Hobbs.

One X user penned: "God, please can someone give Tony Bellew and Sam Thompson their own show."

A second echoed: "I’d 100% watch the Tony Bellew & Sam Thompson show. It needs to happen."

"Tony Bellew and Sam Thompson are giving me absolute vibes," wrote another.

Someone else chimed in: "Obsessed with the Sam Thompson and Tony Bellew dynamic."

"Get yourself someone who loves you as much as Sam Thompson loves Tony Bellew," gushed a fifth, while a final fan added: "Sam Thompson and Tony Bellew is the friendship I didn’t know I needed."

Sam has shown to be pretty affectionate towards his campmates - having been very excited to meet boxer Tony and giving him a hug and also hugging everyone after succeeding in his trial.

And when talking about Sam's participation, Ant quipped: "At least the trial went well. It delivered the ultimate prize for camp, the one thing they value more than anything."

When Dec replied: "Food," Ant joked back: "No, an hour without being hugged by Sam. That would have been bliss.

"You see, he is a nice kid and all that, he is a nice kid but the hug is too much. I wouldn't like that, that's too much for me. Back off."

Ouch.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs on ITV Sunday to Friday at 9pm and Saturday at 9.30pm.
