Larry Lamb is out of the jungle and the I’m A Celeb campmates are duly devastated.
Hosts Ant and Dec compared the shock of the former EastEnders star’s elimination to Brexit and Trump’s election win before Ant mimed playing The Last Post on a trumpet.
However, viewers are home did not see the funny side and accused the host of being “disrespectful” for using the music played on Remembrance Day and at military funerals.

Don’t know if it’s just me being overly sensitive today, but I didn’t like the Last Post being used for a cheap joke 😕 #ImACeleb— Mandy M ✨ (@MandinaM) December 2, 2016
Usually a big fan of Ant and Dec...but playing the last post as part of a joke..don't see the funny side #imaceleb— Lee chiplin 🏴 (@LeeChiplin) December 2, 2016
One fan described it as “unforgivable” while another said it was “appalling”.
Did Ant seriously just do the Last Post on trumpet in #ImaCeleb ? Appalling.— Laura 🔶️ (@Laura_e_Nelson) December 2, 2016
Playing The Last Post... bit too far don't you think? Can't really compare Larry leaving the jungle to a soldiers sacrifice... #ImACeleb— Hayley (@HayG137) December 2, 2016
Very poor choice to use The Last Post over something so trivial as a game show ... disappointed muchly #ImACeleb— AUDREY TAYLOR (@QueenHun) December 2, 2016
Last in the episode soap star Adam Thomas was subjected to a Bushtucker Trial entitled Knickerbocker Gory, which saw him lowered into a large clear dessert glass and joined by a range of critters.
The actor was surrounded by 90,000 jungle nasties by the end of the trial in his bid to earn the six stars on offer.
