Geordie duo Ant and Dec have hosted I’m a Celebrity since it launched in 2002.

Declan Donnelly has admitted to feeling “humiliated” in an unaired clip from I’m a Celebrity: All-Stars.

The TV presenter and his co-host Ant McPartlin returned to screens earlier this week for the new spin-off series of I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.

The much-anticipated show filmed in Kruger National Park, South Africa, has seen the return of previous campmates who will compete against each other to be named the first I’m A Celebrity ‘Legend’.

Ant and Dec uploaded a behind-the-scenes clip to their Instagram ahead of the first Bush Banquet trial featuring Jordan Banjo and Janice Dickinson, who were tasked with eating animal genitalia and other organs.

"Just about to do the first eating trial of the series," Ant said to the camera. "You dirty beast," Dec replied.

"I absolutely love it," Ant confessed. "Don’t you?" he asked as Dec said: "No." Ant then asked: "How do you feel since we’ve done ours... How would you feel doing an eating trial now?"

Dec revealed that he has a new-found sympathy for the celebs after taking on the trial himself, while Ant admitted he’s harder on them, saying: "I’m just a bit like, ‘get it down ya’. I’m harder."

The video then cuts to footage of Ant taking part in an eating trial, showing him wiping his eyes and gripping the wooden table in front of him.

"Did I eat penis, or did you eat penis?" Ant asked before adding: "You spewed."

Another clip of Dec being sick into a glass plays, as Ant mocks his co-host and asks for it to be repeated a further two times.

"Yeah alright, don’t keep looking at it. It’s quite humiliating," Dec confessed. "It’s quite embarrassing. Have you ever spewed into a glass on television before?" he asked viewers. "It’s quite embarrassing," he added.

The Geordie duo recently faced backlash for their comments on the show as they poked fun at Janice Dickinson’s appearance.

They have hosted I’m a Celebrity since it launched in 2002, with Dec appearing in all 23 series - while Ant was replaced by Holly Willoughby in 2018 due to him taking time away from TV work.
