In a video clip published on Twitter, the veteran presenters exude a mixture of shock, excitement and approval on discovering the contestants heading into the jungle in November.
Dec, 47, said of one celebrity: ‘She’s fun and feisty,’ adding about another: ‘She would hate every minute of it.’
Meanwhile, Ant, 46, said: ‘We knew we’d get you on there one of these days’ with Dec adding: ‘We saw him and he never let on. Sneaky boy.’
Speaking of a male celebrity, Ant added: ‘Now I can’t believe we’ve got him. You don’t know what you’ve let yourself in for my friend.’
