I'm A Celebrity hit by fix claims AGAIN after Malique is spotted with his coat and bag just minutes before he was voted off
The Hollyoaks actor became the second celebrity to leave the jungle on Sunday's show, following Noel Edmonds' shock exit on Friday.
But soon after Malique's departure, the ITV show was hit by more fix claims after viewers noticed the 20-year-old was the only celebrity wearing his backpack in the minutes before hosts Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby announced his name.
Viewers also noticed Noel, 69, was the only one with his bag on his knee before his departure on Friday, and many took to Twitter to discuss the coincidence and claim the show was fixed as a consequence.
One wrote: "Did anyone else notice that Malique had his bag on before they even called his name or was that just me???"
Another added: "Perhaps @imacelebrity would look less fixed if whenever there's a vote off the person who ends up going is the only one that has been sat there with their bags packed the whole time."

A third agreed, writing: "Isn't it interesting that the two people that have left the jungle already had their bags ready to leave."
Meanwhile a fourth tweeted: "Noel already had his bag on to leave on Friday & tonight Malique already has his bag on his back" and a fifth wrote: "Noel and Malique both had their bags in hand and were the only ones to do so, is #imaceleb a fix?"
However a TV insider blasted fans' claims, explaining to The Sun Online: "How the celebrities choose to pack up their bags before a vote is their choice.
"No one knows the outcome until Dec and Holly read it out."
But it didn't stop viewers discussing it on Twitter, with another fan of the show writing: "I wonder if on #ImACeleb the person going home is told before and then they go and officially announce it on TV so they have time to get their family and saves faffing about with bags etc.
"The only explanation for how they have their backpacks beforehand."
Another tweeted: "Funny how he already had his bag on ready to go before being told he was out!"
