I’m A Celebrity: Ant too busy with his ‘recovery’ to be involved this year

It was reported Ant McPartlin was involved in scripting this year’s I’m A Celeb gags [ITV]

It’s been confirmed that Ant McPartlin is NOT involved in the latest series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, despite claims. 

Following his drink driving incident and subsequent stay in rehab, Ant decided to take the year off from television work to recoup and prepare himself for a return in 2019, with Holly Willoughby presenting with Declan Donnelly instead. 

Despite his absence from the show, ITV weather presenter Emma Jesson told followers on Twitter that she had learned that Ant has been “secretly involved” with the show all along.

Ant’s spokesperson told OK! online he’s ‘not working’ this year [ITV]

Earlier this week on the jungle show, fans watched in horror as Malique Thompson-Dwyer accidentally got candle wax all over John Barrowman’s clothes.

John blew the candle out before he went to sleep, but Malique re-lit it before falling asleep which caused the candle to melt all over the actor’s clothes. 

With his clothes completely ruined, fans assumed that John would no doubt get some replacement items from bosses… but it looks like that wasn’t the case.
