ANT McPartlin and Dec Donnelly have vowed to make I’m A Celebrity worse than ever this year.
The presenting duo won the first prize at tonight’s National Television Awards tonight – The Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award and they revealed plans for the upcoming series.
The reality show is returning to Gwrych Castle for a second successive year after the pandemic forced producers to abandon plans to use the usual Australian base.
Speaking after picking up the gong, Ant said: “We are going to try and make it worse for the celebrities this year.”
Jordan North, who appeared on the last series, chimed in: “I’ve spoken with many people from the jungle and I think our series was more sinister. It felt more evil…. I can’t wait to watch it.”
Ant added: “The show lives and dies by how well the celebrities do. We had a really good cast last year. We’re not the ones eating testicles and anuses.
Dec joked: “Not on the telly anyway…”
Ant cotninued: “It’s all down to this lot. They got on, made everyone smile and rush home from work to put the telly on.”
The pair also revealed that they will be ditching the highlights show this year after getting a very cold response from viewers on it.
Dec revealed: “One thing we will be doing differently this series from last year. On launch day our socials blew up saying ‘omg you’ve saved 2020, I’m a Celeb is back it’s amazing’.
