It cheered his fans up

Viewers who were disappointed by Iain Lee being voted into third place in last night’s I’m A Celebrity final were soon cheered up when he met Ant and Dec.

Fans couldn’t get over the height difference between the radio host and Declan Donnelly when he welcomed him into the jungle studio.

At nearly 6ft 4in, Iain towered over the 5ft 5in presenter, who has been making “very small man jokes” about Dennis Wise all series.

Viewers took to Twitter to share their amusement with one writing: “Iain is so tall Dec looks like a Hobbit next to him.”

Another said: “The height difference between Iain and Dec is hilarious!”

Others used the opportunity to refer back to the running joke Dec made about Dennis all series tweeting: “To you Dec, Iain Lee is a very very tall man!”

Another wrote: How tall is Iain Lee?! Ant and Dec look like very small men #imaceleb #verysmallman.”

In fact, it had already been proved that Dec was slightly smaller than Dennis after Ant made them stand next to one another to be measured up after the footballer was voted off last week.

That was a difference in millimeters whereas Iain had to double over to give Dec a hug after he found out he wasn’t in the final two because of their vastly different statures.

While the meeting between Iain and Dec made some laugh, others were upset he lost out to Jamie Lomas as the show runner-up.

Many felt the Hollyoaks actor didn’t deserve to come in second place after he had been accused of bullying Iain along with his friends Dennis Wise and Amir Khan.

However, Iain displayed no hard feelings in his exit interview and said he’d had one of the best experiences of his life in the jungle, despite a few low moments.

He said: I nearly walked on the third day… being around people 24/7 made me so uncomfortable as I am so socially awkward… but we’re all cool.

He added: “Thank you for the opportunity, I have loved it.”

Iain was voted into third place in the final after enduring one last trial where he had to eat a pig’s vagina and a camel’s brain.

Jamie came in second place but both only received a fraction of the votes compared to Toff, who was crowned Queen Of The Jungle.
