I’m A Celeb fans were stunned as they spotted something odd, after Rita Simons revealed she was not too good under water.
The confession came as she was announced to take part in the water-based Bushtucker Trial alongside Malique Thompson-Dwyer.
But as Rita fretted over the task, fans recalled a huge link to the trial and her EastEnders exit storyline.
Her character was killed off in a freak accident that saw her drown in a swimming pool alongside sister Ronnie Mitchell.
Watching the ITV show on Friday, fans made the bizarre link and called it “ironic”.
Others questioned whether Roxy’s demise could be the reason for Rita not being so keen on water.
One fan said: “Anyone else noticing that Rita the woman who played Roxy and had her character drowned keeps getting water based tasks?”
Another agreed: “getting Roxy drowns flashbacks right now.”
Meanwhile, one fan said: “Now we know why roxy died, Rita’s terrible under water.”
A second agreed: “I wonder if Rita’s fear of underwater came before or after Roxy’s death.”
A third tweeted: “no wonder rita doesn’t like water after roxy’s death on eastenders.”
Despite her uncertainty about water, she managed to win the task against John Barrowman and Emily Atack.
