I’m A Celeb viewers stunned after discovering how old Jamie Lynn Spears actually is
| Last updated
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! viewers have finally got their first look at Jamie Lynn Spears in the jungle.
Now, episode one was actually off to a bit of a rocky start, with two million fewer viewers than last year.
An average of seven million viewers watched the return of the show, according to overnight ratings, as ITV reported a peak audience of 7.8 million.
Whereas the first episode of the 2022 series had an average audience of 9.1 million and a peak viewership of 10.3 million.
Despite lower viewership numbers, hundreds of viewers were left stunned after learning how old Britney's younger sister is.
Britney is 41, while Jamie Lynn is only 32.
"Can't believe Jamie Lynn Spears is only 32!" one viewer tweeted.
"Jamie Lynn is only 32, she looks the same age as her sister, if not older," a second said.
"Just had to Google the age of Jamie Lynn Spears because I swear she was similar age to me, and she is. #ImACeleb," a third added.
The pair also have an older brother, Bryan, who is 46.
For those unaware, Jamie Lynn is an actor and singer, having appeared in Nickelodeon's Zoey 101.
Jamie Lynn played Zoey Brooks in the show from 2005 until 2008.
However, ITV viewers pointed out that she’s still better known as being Britney’s little sister.
During last night’s show, it appeared that the campmate avoided mentioning it.
Josie Gibson asked her: “Who got you into music then?”
“I’ve always kind of been into music, you know what I mean?” responded the ‘Oops! I did it again’ singer’s sister.
But Josie continued: “Very musical family, aren’t you?” And again, just a ‘yeah’ from Jamie Lynn.
The This Morning star tried again: “Was your grandma into it?" But the American replied: “My mum played the piano a lot.”
Many of the campmates were starstruck though as EastEnders actor Danielle Harold said: “It’s just mad, I’m with Britney Spears’ sister.
“I used to watch Zoey 101 when I came home from school. So it was a bit weird, a bit random.”
Viewers now have a conspiracy theory as to why Britney isn’t being mentioned, with Ant and Dec also avoiding it.
