I'm A Celebrity 2016 producers angry at the campmates for communicating in CODE

Viewers accuse Martin Roberts of using hand gestures to communicate with family


I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! bosses are reportedly annoyed at the contestants - because they're not-so-secretly communicating in code.

According to the Daily Star, this year's campers have been going to great lengths to speak to each other without the cameras and microphones intruding.

Some have apparently been covering up microphones to keep certain conversations private - while others have even been developing "secret signs" to share coded messages with each other.

This has angered producers as it means viewers aren't able to eavesdrop on some of the action in camp.

"The camp are so close this year that they have almost developed their own code," a source told the newspaper. "It’s like they really want to win a war against reality telly."

The story comes after viewers on Twitter accused Martin Roberts (pictured) of using hand gestures to send messages to his family back at home.


Like those on rival show Big Brother, I'm A Celebrity contestants are supposed to be filmed 24 hours a day with zero contact with the outside world.

However, it's unlikely we'll see the celebs being punished for bending the rules, with less than two days to go until the series concludes.

They did get a little taste of the outside yesterday when they appeared on This Morning to compete against Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield in a challenge.

The I'm A Celebrity 2016 final airs on Sunday at 9.00pm on ITV.
