Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly couldn’t resist making a dig at Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s bizarre interview on tonight’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The presenters seized the opportunity to mock the PM, who had hit headlines earlier in the day after stumbling through a speech at the Confederation of British Industry and said ‘forgive me’ as he tried to find the correct place in his notes. 

During Monday’s episode of I’m A Celeb, Dec described a cake the campmates were eating as a ‘galaxy of formidable flavours’, to which Ant asked: ‘Where did we get it?’ 

Dec replied: ‘I’ve got it written down somewhere,’ before pretending to fumble around his own sheets of paper and impersonating Mr Johnson’s voice while telling viewers: ‘Ooh, er, forgive me’.

The hilarious moment went down a treat with viewers, who applauded the presenters for the cheeky jibe. 

One viewer tweeted: ‘Love it Ant and Dec taking the mick out of Boris.’ 


‘Omg, if I couldn’t love Ant and Dec anymore… taking the piss out of Boris…forgive me, forgive me, forgive me,’ another chimed in. 

Another viewer said: ‘Ant and Dec taking the piss out of Boris Johnson’s speech was absolutely sensational.’ 

‘Dec’s impression of Boris, I’m crying,’ one laughed. 

Earlier in the day, Mr Johnson baffled business leaders at the conference as he delivered a ‘rambling’ address, telling them how he ‘loved’ Peppa Pig World despite the cartoon character resembling a ‘Picasso-like hair dryer’.

He also appeared flustered after losing his place during the talk, muttering ‘forgive me’ three times as he leafed through his papers while the audience sat in awkward silence – before eventually continuing around 30 seconds later.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs nightly at 9pm on ITV.
