Eagled-eyed viewers of last night's (24th November) instalment of I'm A Celebrity... spotted an unusual editing gaffe during Richard Madeley's first Bushtucker Trial. How did we not notice this before?!
The TV presenter underwent a tumultuous task filled with fish guts, rotting fruit and maggots. When he came out to reunite with Ant and Dec, he was covered in various kinds of goop.
However, he strangely seemed unscathed when meeting his campmates back at base. Did he have time for a micro-second shower between scenes?
Richard didn't have an easy run during his challenge. Starting off by sticking his hand into animal-infested boxes; he had to navigate around rats, toads and cockroaches in order to collect a coveted star.
He then had to manoeuvre through a dark, dingy castle passageway. The stars became more difficult to find, and the GMB presenter had to keep his cool while different kinds of slurry was plunged onto him.
Wriggling his way through rotting fruit, offal, fish guts and maggots, viewers could smell through the screen as the star caked himself in sludge.
But one particular production problem had people drawn away from the intense task.
"How did Richard get so clean after the trail? [sic]" one viewer asked on Twitter.
"Why is Richard completely clean and dry after that trial?" said another.
"How come Richard was clean when he got back?" a third chimed in.
"What happened to the contestants in @imacelebrity coming back from trials covered in gunk and bugs?? Richard looked freshly showered and in clean clothes" a fourth Twitter user commented.
"OK but how come Richard wasn't covered in all that gunk and disgustingness getting back to camp? @imacelebrity he was completely clean and dry?" said another.
We wish the powers of TV magic worked in real life. Now if you'll excuse us - we need to shower, fake tan, deep condition, blow-dry...
