I’m A Celebrity presenters Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly couldn’t resist aiming a dig at the Prime Minister once again, as they poked fun at him “giving cushy jobs to his mates”. Later on, the pair tickled viewers again, as they made another jibe at the Prime Minister over nepotism within the Conservative party.

As the episode started, Ant announced to the public: “Big news – you’ve elected a new camp leader!”

In response, Dec asked: “Wow, exciting stuff, but what exactly does the leader do?”

At this point, Ant made a cheeky jibe at Prime Minister Boris Johnson. 

“Well, they look increasingly dishevelled, give cushy jobs to their mates and pretty much make it up as they go along,” he said.

“Evening Prime Minister,” Dec added, smiling at the camera to confirm that the statement had been a pointed one. 

However, this wasn’t the only swipe the duo directed at Boris, as Ant had another quip in store ahead of Naughty Boy’s most recent trial. 

He said: “Before the break Naughty Boy was getting ready to face the Savage Steakout with the help of the lords.”

At this, Dec asked: “I’ve been wondering, how do you actually get to become a lord?”

“Donate three million quid to the conserative party,” Ant replied, without hesitation. 

“Oh – evening again Prime Minister… He’s coming for you tonight!” Dec yelled gleefully. 

This isn’t the first time the presenters have made a timely quip at the Prime Minister’s expense. 

On November 22, after Boris was caught on camera fumbling with sheets of paper, pleading “forgive me” as he struggled to find his place in a speech to the Confederation of British Industry, Ant and Dec couldn’t resist poking a bit of fun at him.

During the episode, Dec began talking about the Victoria sponge cake that the blue team had managed to win for their camp. 

As they ate their well-deserved treat, he described it 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 faff around with his own sheets of paper and impersonating the Prime Minister’s voice, whilst telling viewers: “Ooh, er, forgive me”.

The joke took aim at Johnson’s performance at the recent conference in South Shields, which saw him bumbling around helplessly before suddenly praising the popular children’s cartoon, Peppa Pig.

Mr Johnson started reflecting on a trip to a Peppa Pig World theme park in Hampshire, which he said was “very much my kind of place”.

In the speech, the politician could be heard saying: “So with safer streets, err, with great local schools, err, with fantastic broadband err…” 

Boris frantically swapped his papers around and muttered something inaudible before saying “forgive me” a total of three times. 

The pause lasted a total of 21 seconds, causing a lot of listeners to be distinctly unimpressed by the Prime Minister’s public speaking skills. 

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