I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here! drew 5 million fewer viewers for the 2021 finale than last year, it has been revealed.
In 2020, Giovanna Fletcher took home the top prize at the end of a pandemic-ravaged series that made the show its highest ratings in years. The finale was watched by 12.1 million people.
However, this year’s finale only had 7.1 million viewers, each Daily mail.
In the episode that aired on ITV Last night (December 12), it was revealed that viewers voted Danny Miller as King of the Castle, beating runner-ups Frankie Bridge and Simon Gregson.
2021 series I’m a celebrity, set in his second year of running at Gwrych Castle, Wales, encountered some major difficulties during the run.
Damage was around £1m caused by Storm Arwen last month, resulting in the show being dragged off the airwaves for days.

One thing the series failed to do this year, however, is satire, with the Ant and Dec hosts having built a reputation as two of the prime minister’s harshest critics.
