Ant and Dec caught complaining about technical glitch on ‘I’m A Celebrity’ – watch

Dec didn't realise he was still live on air when he sounded off about the error

Ant and Dec were heard complaining about a technical glitch on last night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

When the duo phoned contestant Vicky Pattison to relay a message for her and two of her campmates, the Geordie Shore star struggled to hear what they were saying. A member of the show’s production team – who was at the contestants’ camp, but not seen on camera – then had to clarify the instructions.

Not realising that their microphones were still switched on, Dec was then heard complaining: “Why didn’t they just do that in the first place instead of making you ring?”

Further technical glitches occurred later in the episode, with Pattison and her campmates Duncan Bannatyne and George Shelley initially unable to hear Ant and Dec when they tried to relay another message from the studio to the camp.

Ant also struggled to communicate with contestant Ferne McCann on the phone, with the TOWIE star saying: “He cut off, he cut off.”
