Everton fans have bizarre theory ITV are 'censoring' Tony Bellew on I'm A Celeb

Some Everton fans have a theory ITV are censoring Tony Bellew on I’m A Celebrity.
Last week the Toffees appealed against the decision to dock them 10 Premier League points for financial rule breaches. The punishment, which was issued by an independent commission, is the biggest in Premier League history.
Everton have lodged their appeal with the Premier League judicial panel, and an appeal board is set to be appointed to hear the case.
While the club admitted the breach, they have said they were “shocked and disappointed” at the severity of the punishment. The appeal is set to be heard and concluded before the end of this season.
The points deduction is a frequent topic of conversation for all Evertonians, who feel aggrieved by the extremity of the punishment.
And fans have noted that Bellew, a massive Everton fan who is currently in Australia competing on ITV’s 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here’, has not mentioned the fortunes of his club on the show.
One fan said on X: "Imagine having Tony Bellew's platform #ImACeleb and not mentioning #Everton and the #Corruption at the #PremierLeague.”
And another replied: "He probably has mentioned it but clever editing by the producers means you won't see it!"
Other fans, however, have criticised Everton fans for projecting onto ‘I’m a Celebrity’.
One said: "Everton fans really are a different breed!"
A second added: "The world against Everton it seems. Even ITV are in on the act!"
Thousands of Everton fans held anti-Premier League protests over the scale of the punishment before a 3-0 defeat against Manchester United last month.
Meanwhile, several regional politicians have also raised concerns, including Mayor of Liverpool Steve Rotheram and Mayor for Greater Manchester Andy Burnham.
