“We really appreciate the feedback although I should point out that medically I can’t actually do that to myself,” Ant joked. 

“Coming up on tonight’s live show which by the way is a belter,” Dec continued. 

“So it should be, it’s taken two days to make,” Ant exclaimed. 

“Don’t you start,” Dec hit back. “There’s a castle coin challenge that spells trouble for Vernon and Russell. 

“It’s ladies night at the trial and less than two days after you lot voted for a camp leader the winner was in office.”

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again they should have done the American election via the I’m A Celebrity app,” Ant joked.
