I’m A Celebrity fans baffled as Jacqueline Jossa doesn’t recognise Cliff Parisi

I'm A Celebrity aired the arrival of new campmate Cliff Parisi on Thursday, with him joined by Coronation Street's Kirk Sutherland actor Andrew Whyment.

Former EastEnders star Cliff, who played lovable Minty on the BBC soap, has yet to enter the main camp.

Over in the camp, the original line-up learned about the new jungle stars and received a wanted poster with both Cliff and Andy's faces on.

US star Caitlyn Jenner isn't familiar with British soaps, and was left asking her campmates if any of them knew who the two men were.

Everyone was quick to point out Andy played Kirk in Corrie, but no one seemed to recognise Cliff.

This baffled viewers given one of the campmates is former EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa.

She played Lauren Branning on the soap, so fans were a little confused as to why she didn't recognise her fellow Walford star.

Taking to Twitter , one fan said: "How did Jacqueline not recognise Cliff? They were in #Eastenders briefly together after all. Or is it just cos it was nearly 10 years ago?"


Another agreed: "How does Jacqueline not know who cliff is?!??"

A third said: "loooool as if Jacqueline didn’t know who Cliff was, she literally turned up in Walford the week he left, was there not a Christmas party?!"

The scene was pretty quick and most likely edited, so perhaps Jacqueline did voice who Cliff was and it just did not air.

Saying that, the pair didn't actually appear on-screen together with Minty departing Walford on 21st September 2010 – having joined in 2002.

Meanwhile, it was just six days later that Jacqueline Jossa had replaced Madeline Duggan in the role of Lauren Branning.

So the characters may not have crossed paths, but with there usually being around six weeks between filming and transmission they may have met on set.

I'm A Celebrity airs nightly at 9pm on ITV.
