I am a celebrity: finally viewers beg Nick Knowles to stop singing.
He was utterly speechless on Tuesday after hearing his Adele cover topped the charts.
But many I’m A Celebrity viewers have regretted Nick’s music success, as he broke into a gravelly version of Make You Feel Me Love on Wednesday’s show.
The DIY SOS frontman left many fans pleading for him to stop singing, with Anne Hegerty later saying in the Bush Telegraph she ‘wasn’t crazy’ about the Adele track
following Rita Simons departure, it seemed Nick was still comprehending the fact that he had made it to Number One in iTunes music charts, thanks to a campaign by Radio X DJ Chris Moyles back in the UK.
Anne seemed particularly unimpressed by the song choice, saying later in the Bush Telegraph: ‘It’s not a song I’m particularly crazy about, the most recent thing I bought was Portugal the Man ‘Feel it Still’ which I thought was an excellent song.
‘If it’s made the UK charts then I’m sure I will hear it sometime because I do try and keep an ear to the charts, as a quizzer you kind of have to.’
And later in the show Nick got another chance to show off his singing skills, as he broke into the Adele hit while enjoying an evening in the jungle arms.
After James McVey offered a sample of his vocals to an Oasis hit, Nick broke into song as well, and his constant singing throughout the show left many viewers covering their ears.
One person tweeted: ‘Please make Nick Knowles stop singing!’ while another added: ‘James was like enough now.’
A third also tweeted: ‘Hope Nick is off next. Don’t know what was worse, seeing him in his pants or his singing. Hurts my ears and my eyes.’
It came in a show which saw Anne Hegerty bid a fond farewell to her campmates as she became the fifth celebrity to be voted off.
Speaking after she made her exit from camp for the final time, Anne told hosts Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby that she had originally quit the show mere hours after arriving in Snake Rock, but was convinced to stay by producers.
