Not only do we have to put up with the X Factor being back, but I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is now¬†back on our¬†screens for its annual run.

Ant and Dec may be as affable as ever, but much like other reality shows that started out at the same time, does the curtain needs to close for one final time on the program?

Not only do they use the term ‘celebrity’ rather loosely these days, but we’ve seen it all.

How many times can you crown someone King or Queen of the jungle, see someone else do 90 per cent of the Bushtucker Trials and fail them, and put up with the 293857 faux-mance of the series?

This year (well, last year) it was one time too many, and here are five reasons I’m A Celeb needs to get in the bin.

The Recreation Of The Infamous Bikini Shower

Since Myleene Class managed to reignite her career by showering in a tiny white bikini on the show, every female ‘celeb’ who followed her has tried to do the same.

This year, you’d probably make a fair bit of cash betting Hollyoaks actress (yes, that’s what they call themselves) Jorgie Porter will be the one to strip off.

She’s already been photographed on the beach in Australia, and seems to be practicing her poses so she’s in tip top shape for the camera.

A calendar and appearance on Celebrity Juice, followed by a swift return to Hollyoaks after finishing in the top four and crying during a Bushtucker Trial awaits.

Utter Meltdowns

Who can forget Gemma Collins sniveling in front of the camera as she lost the plot and had to leave the jungle early.

It’s all well and good laughing at these people as they slowly disintegrate, but you do have to worry for their actual sanity.

Being stuck in the outback with very little food at times is hardly good for them.

And while they’re probably getting a decent fee for it, the meltdowns are old and frankly, not that enjoyable to watch for people who either a) have better things to do with their time, or b) have a conscience.

I’m Sorry, Who Are You?

A-listers were never going to be keen on going into the jungle, but we at least used to get D-listers.

Now it’s more Z-listers, and frankly, people who we haven’t even heard of. At all.

The shittier the star, the slightly more desperate they are to make it their big comeback – meaning it makes for incredibly cringe-worthy viewing.

The show is getting more and more contrived, and it detracts from the enjoyment of it.

It’s not as contrived as some other reality TV shows, but it is getting there. And when that happens, it’s time for the bin.

Someone Call The RSPCA

Bushtucker Trials are most people’s favourite part of the program – and as Helen Flannagan found out, if people don’t like you, they’ll vote over and over again for you to do God knows what.

While it’s slightly amusing to see various Z-listers have to squirm, we have to consider the amount of poor animals (no matter how creepy the crawly) that were probably harmed or eaten in the making of that scene.

There’s only so many times you can actually watch someone gag on a maggot before losing interest, and all these years later, we’ve reached that point.

Sexcapades In The Jungle Is Never A Good Look

Not only do we usually get treated to a showmance or two during each run of the series, there is always some action that goes on in the camp.

It’s far more PG than stuff you’d see in the Big Brother house, but camp romances never usually end well.

Not only do we get treated to the endless articles and chat show appearances after their time in the camp is over, but we also get the inevitable round of break-up articles too.

From Katie and Peter to Marc and Cerys (yep, that messy situation ended badly for everyone) it’s a standard feature of each year, and a very unwanted one.

In the bin with you, I’m afraid.
