Curtis Pritchard, 25, has taken to social media to poke fun at viewers’ claims that they had “forgotten” his brother AJ Pritchard, 26, is taking part in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! this year. The former Love Islander posted a meme of someone sinking into the ground and hilariously typed: “AJ when the cameras start rolling.”

I haven’t seen him

He added: “Hahahaha I think @aj11ace has gone to the jungle cause I haven’t seen him in the castle yet!

“Let’s get AJ in a trial! Let’s get voting later!”(sic)

AJ arrived at Gwyrch Castle, North Wales, on Sunday night’s launch show alongside the likes of Vernon Kay, Shane Richie and Mo Farah.

It has now been four episodes since the show started and AJ has rarely spoken on-screen.

Curtis and his mum have been running AJ’s Instagram account while he’s in the camp.

In another post from AJ’s account one of the pair typed: “As much as we love you AJ, we need to see more of this please.

“LET’S GET AJ TO DO MORE TRIALS!! We need to see all of the squeals and screaming.”

Viewers also took to social media to question if the star is even in the camp, as they have not “spotted him” yet.

One said: “In 3 episodes AJ Pritchard has said about 5 words!”

A second typed: “Heard AJ Pritchard is on #imacelebrity think it must’ve been a lie, haven’t spotted him yet!”

A third wrote: “Keep forgetting AJ Pritchard exists to be perfectly honest!”

While a fourth typed: “MISSING: Where is AJ Pritchard?”

Another agreed: “MISSING: AJ Pritchard. Last seen 3 episodes ago.”

It comes as AJ quit Strictly Come Dancing ahead of his appearance on I’m A Celebrity, after making it to the top six couples in the dance contest last year.

After four years of appearing on the programme, AJ was eliminated the week after the Blackpool special alongside Saffron Barker before deciding to quit the show.

The dancer explained in an interview with Lorraine: “I was there for four years, and for me, I felt like I left on a real high.

“I feel there are other things I want to do with my career and other projects I want to push, and things I want to do with my brother,” he added.

His team also released a statement explaining he was ready to explore career opportunities elsewhere.

It read: “After four years on Strictly Come Dancing, AJ has decided the time is right to leave the show and follow his dreams to explore opportunities in the presenting world alongside his brother Curtis.

“AJ would like to thank the team at Strictly and everyone at the BBC for giving him such a brilliant opportunity.”

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight on ITV at 9pm.
