I’m A Celebrity’s Ant and Dec take swipe at Boris Johnson’s Christmas party cover-up: ‘Not a great idea’

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! hosts Ant and Dec have taken another big swipe at Boris Johnson after the alleged Christmas Party at Downing Street last December.

For the second time in two nights, the presenters made a cheeky dig at the PM after Mr Johnson announced that the UK will move to ‘Plan B’, in an effort to stop the spread of the Omicron variant of Covid.

Observers suggested that the move, which had not been rumoured until Tuesday, was conveniently timed – with the Government facing a major public backlash to allegations that Number 10 hosted Christmas parties last winter.

The reports have been denied, with a Downing Street spokesperson saying: ‘There was no Christmas party. Covid rules have been followed at all times.’

Now, Ant and Dec have hit out at the Prime Minister once again.

It came after the campmates decided to keep the truth about the Castle Coin Challenge hidden from David Ginola.

 

‘So they’ve decided to cover it up…’ Ant said.

‘That’s not a very good idea is it?’ Dec added.

‘If we’ve learned one thing in the last 24 hours, it’s that you can’t get away with covering things up.’

‘That will come back to bite them at some point,’ Dec joked. ‘It might take a year, but it will happen. The situation was as clear as day. We all watched a video of them getting the question wrong.

‘It was obvious what happened. Even Ant and Dec were ahead of the Prime Minister… I mean Danny Miller!’ Dec added.

‘Don’t worry we’ll launch an enquiry or something. Not that that’ll do anything…’

It comes after the Geordie duo, who are known for their ‘Evening, Prime Minister’ catchphrase and enjoy throwing a bit of shade the government’s way, brought us one of their most iconic moments yet when they referred to the reports that a Christmas party was held in Downing Street when strict tier three Covid-19 restrictions were in place.

Even Labour leader Keir Starmer referenced Ant and Dec’s dig at the PM, as he declared in Prime Minister’s Questions that ‘Ant and Dec are ahead of the Prime Minister on this’.

Almost every day since the start of this year’s I’m A Celebrity, Ant and Dec have taken aim at Mr Johnson, most notably when Dec referred to him as ‘Prime Minister…for now’ and gave us his rendition of his ‘forgive me’ speech.

Last year, the Prime Minister wasn’t safe either – when he was isolating during the Covid-19 pandemic, the pair suggested that he ‘must’ be watching, before launching into a less than complimentary bumbling impression of him.

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