I’M A Celebrity fans are convinced that a feud could already be brewing in the jungle camp.
During the show’s debut last night, Sam was full of beans as he took on the first challenge and met his campmates for the first time.
He was particularly taken by Fred and said he was intent on making him a mate.
Those watching at home found it very amusing, with one commenting: “Sam is so obsessed with fred & you can tell fred hates it.”
A second added: “I can see Fred getting annoyed with Sam I just sense it.”
While a third said: “Can tell Sam Thompson’s energy is triggering Fred already.”
Sam, 31, is known to be excitable and has previously admitted his personality is down to his ADHD.
Speaking recently about his diagnosis, he said: “On one hand, I’m grateful about where I’ve got to and I wouldn’t change anything.
“But there’s never a balance – I’m either really high or really low, and though I enjoy where my energy gets to, the crashes are pretty intense.

“I have moments where a tiny little thing means my world will come crumbling down.
“I’ve had that for 30 years and have always thought I’m just weird.”
Sam is currently up there as a favourite to win the show, behind Josie Gibson and Danielle Harold.
