Fans of I’m A Celebrity South Africa are stunned after Janice Dickinson and Paul Burrell failed to mention their secret connection from before the show.
The pair have both appeared on the very first All Stars episode of I’m A Celebrity, before Janice, 67, was forced to leave the show after a nasty fall.
But during their time on the ITV reality show, neither Janice nor former royal butler Paul, 64, said they played Celebrity Big Brother together in 2015.
Janice even went so far as to claim she had no idea who Princess Diana’s butler was, despite their connection from many years before the show.
After they were first “introduced” on I’m A Celebrity, Janice said, “I just met two camp mates. They seem like such nice guys. I wish I knew who they were.’

Since then, neither of them have shared how they spent days together in the Big Brother house in 2015, with fans baffled by the absent detail.
One fan commented on Twitter, “I love how Paul and Janice never talked about their time on Big Brother together.”
Another commented, “It’s funny because Janice and Paul were on Celebrity Big Brother together years ago and she can’t remember him? Certainly Jan.’
A third added, “Janice pretends she doesn’t know Paul even though they crossed over on Celebrity Big Brother 8 years ago.”
Janice entered Celebrity Big Brother in 2015 on day two, before being evicted on day 27, while Paul appeared on the show as a house guest.
Paul entered the Big Brother house on the sixth day to help with the Big Brother Royal Family task and left three days later.
It comes after it was announced on Monday that Janice had left camp after suffering a nasty injury when she fell while getting up at night to go to the toilet.
During Monday’s episode, former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan read a note informing camp mates of Janice’s departure.
She left the camp to seek medical attention and it was decided she would not return.

But no footage of Janice’s fall was shown, leading some fans to take to social media to wonder if Janice had really left simply because she didn’t want to continue on the show.
One person tweeted, “Hummm could this have been intentional?! She didn’t look like she loved it!”, while someone else exclaimed, “Fall my foot!”
Someone else wrote, “She probably did it on purpose,” while another posted, “She doesn’t care anymore is the truth.”
“She didn’t fall, just an excuse to leave,” someone else wrote.
Someone else commented, “”Fall” yeah okay. Because we’re stupid enough to believe that.’
MailOnline has contacted ITV for comment.
The former model has opened up about the “freak accident” in the middle of the night that forced her to leave the show – which was taped last year – revealing that she tripped in the dark and landed face-first.
She was taken off on a stretcher and taken to hospital by ambulance to treat her injuries and was not allowed to return to the camp.
said Janice The sun TV Mag from the newspaper: ‘I woke up in the middle of a night because I had to go to the dunny (toilet) … The campfire had gone out and it was as dark as it could be. So I thought, “Okay, I’ll get the dunny out of my head.”
“I took a few steps and stumbled, flying flat on my face — hair over my forehead, my nose covered in blood and my entire chin cut open. Blood gushed from all these areas and there was dirt and stones in my face from the fall.”
She was rescued by campmates Fatima Whitbread and Phil Tufnell who took her back to the main camp and called for a medic.
Janice continued, “(The doctor) said, ‘Oh dear! We’ve got to get her to the medical hut’ so they could wash out the blood, stones and dirt in case an infection came along.”

“They gave me pain medication, put me on a stretcher, and four men galloped me along the road in the cold air in the middle of the night, two feet off the ground.
“We reached an ambulance and the paramedics put a compress on my forehead and chin. It sucked. I was in this little hospital in the middle of nowhere and they called my husband (Robert Gerner), who was in South Africa, to take him to the hospital.”
At the hospital, the doctors cleaned her cuts and scrapes and gave her more pain medication.
However, Janice was unable to rejoin the rest of her campmates and her time on the show came to an end.
