I’M A Celebrity fans think they have spotted beef between David Ginola and Arlene Phillips after just one episode.
At one point Arlene, 78, declared: “The red team don’t have a cha-cha-chance with me around.”
David, 54, looked completely bemused – perhaps unaware of her Strictly past – and viewers suspected they were already starting to wind each other up.
One person wrote: “David and Arlene are gonna have beef I’m calling it #ImACeleb.”
Another commented: “David’s facial expressions in the challenge with Arlene #ImACeleb.”
While someone else tweeted: “Just putting it out there, but I reckon Arlene and David will start to grate on each other when they start to get hungry and tempers become frayed #ImACeleb.”

And another added: “#ImACeleb David looks so done with Arlene already.”
The new series of the ITV show kicked off with soap star Danny Miller, music producer Naughty Boy, presenter Louise Minchin and radio DJ Snoochie Shy attempting to walk across a wooden plank 213 feet in the air above a quarry lake, before stamping on a button with their foot to make their opponent’s platform drop.

French footballer star David Ginola, Paralympic gold champion Kadeena Cox, former Strictly Come Dancing judge Dame Arlene Phillips and diver Matty Lee faced another challenge, working together to unlock two flare boxes.
However, to reach the keys they needed to insert their arms into “hell holes” filled with snakes, with Kadeena and Matty coming out on top.
Richard Madeley and Frankie Bridge took on their first I’m A Celebrity trial, completing challenges while critters rained down upon them.
The TV presenter and Saturdays singer faced the Turrets Of Terror, a three-level structure built in front of Gwrych Castle, after receiving the most votes from the public.

Frankie retrieved the key to the castle for the newly formed red team, ensuring them a stay in the main camp with food and a bed, while the losing yellow team spent their first night in “Castle Clink” and will be given basic rations.
The public later voted for Emmerdale star Danny to face the second trial on Monday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity.
He will represent the losing yellow team in the “castle’s dreaded diner” and will face a member of the winning red team during the challenge.
Presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly confirmed the other celebrity contestant who will take part in the trial will be announced on Monday’s show.
The flagship series is returning to Gwrych Castle near Abergele in North Wales for a second year due to ongoing coronavirus travel restrictions, preventing filming at its usual location in the Australian jungle.
