The duo return to screens tonight to host another episode of ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ on ITV at 9pm. Sunday’s final is fast approaching and the end is in sight for the remaining stars at Gwrych Castle. Last night, Louise Minchin became the fifth contestant to leave the castle, after music producer Naughty Boy was voted out on Wednesday evening.
Ant and Dec look back over the last 24 hours with only a handful of the celebrities left.
The presenting duo, who formed after meeting as child actors on CBBC drama Byker Grove, have fronted ‘I’m a Celebrity’ since August 2002.
Their chemistry and cheeky quips have become a feature of the iconic ITV show, in which a group of celebrities live together in extreme conditions, deprived of their home comforts.
Each member undertakes challenges to secure additional food and treats for the group and to avoid being voted out by viewers.

The gruelling demands of the show often test the stars to their limits, as acknowledged by Ant and Dec during a 2005 interview with the Guardian.
Dec joked: “It’s incredibly nasty. We’re being lined up for Ant and Dec’s Public Flogging.”
Ant then quipped: “But we’ll do it with a smile. Aye, bring back Hanging With Ant and Dec.”
Yet the pair also admitted that they had their limits as to how much cruelty they were willing to be involved with.
Dec said: “When we first started in rehearsals for ‘I’m A Celebrity’ they said, ‘We’re thinking that, in the morning when you go in to reveal that the bush tucker trial is, if they haven’t eaten you can go in with bacon sandwiches and go mmmmmm!’
“And we were like, ‘No! You can’t do s*** like that’.
“It’s like when you’re getting rid of the kids on Pop Idol.
“You don’t want to do it in a way that’s unsympathetic because it’s the hardest thing, having your dreams shattered.”

In the same throwback interview, the Geordie duo insisted that neither of them were political.
However, Ant and Dec have since made a habit of using the ITV programme to take pops at Boris Johnson and the Government.
This week, the presenters found ways to make digs at the Prime Minister during their ‘I’m a Celebrity’ commentary.
Mr Johnson dismissed widespread claims Number 10 held a Christmas work party last December despite lockdown rules having been in place.
As the row over the alleged festivities rumbles on, Ant cheekily quipped on Wednesday night’s programme: “So they’ve decided to cover it up.”
Dec added: “Not a great idea, that, is it?”
To sounds of laughter in the studio, Ant said: “If we’ve learnt anything in the last 24 hours, it’s that you can’t get away with covering things up.”
Noting that the campmates had a new leader, Ant said: “But they weren’t celebrating. They didn’t have a party. They categorically deny any suggestion that they had a party.
“And this ‘fictional party’ definitely didn’t involve cheese and wine or a secret santa.”
Dec then interjected: “Evening, Prime Minister!”
In response to the allegations, Mr Johnson has claimed that Number 10 staff followed all coronavirus rules last Christmas.
Meanwhile, Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak denied attending the bash and Downing Street have refuted all claims a party took place at all.
Watch ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’ on ITV at 9pm.
