Have you ever thought you might miss out on some juicy bits of gossip from I'm A Celebrity? Well, it turns out there might be a hack that allows campmates to have secret convos that won't be shown on TV.

The idea originally came from former 2020 contestant Shane Ritchie, 57.

He shared the hack with fellow campmate Victoria Derbyshire, and she explained in a piece for The Mirror how it works.

She wrote: "If we ever wanted to talk about something privately that we didn't want to appear on television, Shane told us to sing a famous song in the middle of it because ITV wouldn't want to pay for the rights to the track, so wouldn't include it on the show."

Jordan North was the runner-up of I'm A Celebrity 2020 and previously explained on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show: "So if we were having a conversation that we didn't want to go on air, we'd have a conversation and we'd get someone in the background to sing 'I Want To Break Free'.

"So I'd be there with Shane Richie going, 'Is he really like that?

"I've always loved him on the telly'.

"Shane's saying, 'Can't stand him mate, he is nothing like you see...'

"Then you've got Vernon in the background going, 'Hey Jude, don't let me down'.

"Then we'd know it wouldn't go on air."

Very sneaky.

LADbible have contacted ITV for comment.

One of this year's contestants Frankie Bridge has also revealed there's a giveaway sign to tell if she's angry with any of her I'm A Celeb campmates, saying there's one thing she always does if she's fuming with someone.

The mum-of-two told The Sun: "Confrontation-wise, I'm not confrontational at all, I hate it. I think Loose Women will have helped in that I enjoy listening to other people's opinions - whether I agree with them or not.

"I think it will help in that I'm used to some stronger opinions and stronger personalities than mine in camp.

"There's one thing being on an hour's show with women you know and love and have known for ages, to being in a situation where everyone is tired, homesick and hungry.

"It's so hard to know what your patience is going to be like.

"Everyone says I flare my nostrils [when I'm angry] and they keep saying 'I can't wait to see your nostrils flare on ITV."
