I'm A Celeb's Ant and Dec mock Boris Johnson's secret lockdown Christmas parties

Ant and Dec had a bit of fun at Boris Johnson’s expense on tonight’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

The Geordie duo were talking about who was up for the next trial, when they slipped in a gag about the Prime Minister.

Dec explained that athlete Matty Lee would be doing the trial because he lost the wishing well challenge earlier.

Ant then added: “And Naughty Boy because the British public insist on voting for a bumbling figure who puts on a spread for a select group of friends behind closed doors in a historic building.”

As the crew could be heard roaring with laughter, Dec says: “Evening Prime Minister” before pulling a party popper.

Boris and his Downing Street staff were accused of breaking Covid rules by attending parties at Number 10 in the run-up to last Christmas.

The Prime Minister was said to have given a speech at a packed leaving do for a top aide last November when the country was in the grip of its second lockdown.

Then just days before Christmas, with London in tier 3 restrictions, members of his top team reportedly held their own festive shindig in Downing Street.

The revelations come after top health chief Dr Jenny Harries warned that people should reduce their socialising this Christmas in the light of the Covid surges.

Back to I’m A Celeb and Naughty Boy, who hasn’t had the smoothest of starts on the show found out tonight he’d been sleeping in his hammock the wrong way.

Admitting he’d had a restless night he told his campmates: “I was topsy turvy, you can’t sleep on a hammock the way you want.”

But Frankie Bridge and DJ Snoochie Shy, curled up in their own hammocks, pointed out that it was because he was sleeping in it the ‘wrong way.’

Naughty Boy asked them: “Why didn’t someone say last night?”

But Frankie just laughed and said: “I’ve only just noticed. Also you could have just looked at how everyone else is sleeping and thought ‘I might try that.’”

Tonight’s show saw the first elimination in which Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips was told to back her bags.

Leaving the castle, the oldest ever campmate told hosts Ant and Dec that she felt “emotional” but was looking forward to seeing her family.

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is on every night on ITV.
