The second part of the trial saw Ruthie and Russell pick fish eyes up with their mouths and move them from a bowl to a cup, squeezing the juice out. Fans spotted that Russell actually used his hands in the trial. Even though they were specifically told to only use their mouths. Of course, people took to Twitter to express their anger, and people weren’t happy about the new campmate!

One person tweeted:

“Why was Russell allowed to cheat in those trials? He was blatantly using his hand to scoop the answers to his mouth in the (barrel) and was tipping the fish eyes”. Another wrote: “Russell Watson cheating on #imaceleb I mean what do they say ‘Once a cheater always a cheater’”. Ouch!
