Video: Ant and Dec sorry for 'weird' I'm A Celebrity ending

Ant and Dec have apologised after they ended the latest episode of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! in a very strange fashion.

All was going smoothly as the pair linked to I’m A Celebrity … Extra Camp hosts Vicky Pattison, Chris Ramsey, Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon to find out what was happening on their spin-off show.

But when the link returned to Ant and Dec, the duo were just seen looking at their prompt cards, muttering and gesticulating at the camera, before the credits rolled.

Ant and Dec, who hadn’t realised the cameras were rolling, blamed “tech” issues for what they admitted was a “weird” end to the ITV show.

Wednesday’s show saw some of the celebs having to lie in boxes of snakes, mud crabs, cockroaches and mealworms as part of the first battle of the Claim Of Thrones contest which will be played out over the next few days.
