I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here's recent evictee Alli Simpson has hit back at claims Gogglebox stars Adam and Symon weren't welcomed by their fellow campers.

The rumour came from the So Dramatic! podcast after a source told host Megan Pustetto the boys "were not well received among the other cast members at all" when they entered the jungle as intruders.

"Going in as an intruder so late was always going to be hard as the other contestants had already formed strong bonds, so they were considered outsiders," Megan told her listeners.

The source reportedly told Megan the celebs who were already on the show "plotted to squash them out".

"Essentially they iced them out and the boys didn’t get a chance to bond with anyone," the source reportedly said. "They did not last long at all."

When the boys arrived in camp, they thought everyone's reaction was pretty "flat" with many people not even getting up to say hello.

Toni Pearen immediately turned to Jess Eva and asked, "What the f**k is going on?"

Toni later teared up, telling Colin Fassnidge, "I can't handle any more people."

"I was seriously lost for words," she told the cameras. "I just didn’t think that this late in the game, two more people would be introduced to the camp.

"We’ve got our thing … (But now) we’ve got these two new people who haven’t lived it like we’ve lived it."

However, Alli has denied Adam and Symon were "iced out" by the other celebrities.

"No, not at all," Alli told News.Com.Au. "When they came in we were all super flat. The vibe might have come off that way that we were all not super stoked, but we were all having the worst day – we hadn’t eaten, we were 10 or 11 days in. But we were so excited to have new campmates.

"Adam and Symon just bought this whole new vibe and energy and they’re just such amazing guys."

"Everyone was being nice to them from what I heard and the conversations I was in. Everyone loved them and everyone was being nice to them."
