The new season of I & # 39; m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here began on Sunday evening.

And although the Channel Ten offer managed to score the top position in the rating game, it was also a bit of a lax result for the reality show.

The premiere of season five drew with an audience of 1,098,000 – the debut of the lowest season so far.

By way of comparison: I started the opening season of A Celeb in 2015 with 1,199,000 viewers before the premium delivery classifications peaked in 2016 with an audience of 1,324,000.

In 2017, the ratings for the first episode of the show, hosted by Julia Morris and Dr. Chris Brown, to 1.103.000 viewers.

There was a slight rating jump in 2018 when I & # 39; m A Celeb debuted for an audience of 1,274,000.

However, it was not all a doom and gloom for the reality show, which this year is marked by Justin Lacko, Ajay Rochester, Luke Jacobz and Dermott Brereton.

It beat all its competition to be top-rated on Sunday at the highest point of the rankings, nine Nine News (822,000 viewers) and Seven News (778,000 viewers) to beat.

ABC News shifted behind the commercial networks with 614,000 people tuning in while The Sunday Project scored a meager audience of 479,000.

The other offer from Channel Ten: I am A Celeb did much better than the other big show on the network the same evening, with The Sunday Project scored an audience of 479,000

I & # 39; m A Celebrity got a lot of criticism of his Sunday debut from online fans, who created the inimitable line-up of & # 39; stars & # 39; beat.

The less than excellent selection of personalities present themselves at the beginning of the show, so the situation is mocked on Twitter.

One person tweeted: & # 39; You know that they are really not celebrities when the celebrities have to introduce themselves and explain who they are & # 39 ;.

Another wrote: & # 39; How embarrassing #ImACelebrityAU with these low-budget celebs. They do not even know each other. & # 39;
