Domino's has begged I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! fans to quit ordering pizzas for their favorite contestants after one of its Welsh branches was inundated with calls for deliveries. 

The fast-food chain issued an emergency appeal on Thursday morning for the public to stop buying pizzas for the participants on the ITV reality show—and it's not kidding around. 

A small but loud minority of viewers have been sending Domino's pizzas to Gwyrech Castle for the I'm a Celebrity contestants 2021 to enjoy over the past few days, despite the fact the competition rules forbid outside food from entering the premises. 

The surge in orders has understandably been a pain for the company's delivery drivers, who have been repeatedly stopped by production from giving the campers their culinary treats. 

"Yes, we know the campmates deserve something tasty after all the Bushtucker Trials, but please stop ordering pizzas to the castle," Domino's wrote on their Twitter page. "We can’t get them through the gates, so your favorite celebrities aren’t getting a pizza the action. (The crew are quite happy though)." 

Shortly after Naughty Boy's elimination on Wednesday, the crew at the Welsh landmark were hit by a mammoth delivery of warm pizza boxes—courtesy of the series' devout fans. It appears a handful of viewers have been growing concerned by complaints of hunger from the celebrities, and are now hoping to help ease their discomfort with the yummy Italian dish.

But despite rumors that the I'm a Celebrity contestants are more pampered by producers than you might think, it seems the line is drawn at takeaway pizza. 

The piping hot deliveries have instead been gobbled up by the show's crew, who were recently forced to work through the night due to Storm Arwen destroying the set. 

Here's hoping the remaining celebs in the castle don't find out that they're surrounded by a moat of the pizzas—if ever there was a reason to quit the show, it's certainly that.
