Ant and Dec’s “Small Man” banter has I’m A Celebrity viewers in stitches

Poor old Dennis!

If there’s one thing Ant and Dec know after more than 20 years lighting up our screens, it’s the importance of a good running joke.

And the butt of the gag throughout this series of I’m A Celebrity has been talking about the height – or lack of it – of one of the contestants.

Each night, Dennis Wise’s dimensions come in for some light-hearted ribbing from the Geordie duo, with Dec repeatedly insisting that Dennis is “a very small man.”

It’s got to the point where even the ex-footballer’s Wikipedia page has been locked, to stop people amending it talking about his height!

And tonight, Dec and Dennis were finally on screen together, as Dennis and Jamie were picked to take on a Bush Tucker Trial.

Of course, Ant wasn’t going to let the opportunity pass by, and took the time later in the show to highlight that in fact, Dec’s the exact same height – 5’6″!

He brought up an image of the two of them standing next to one another, and pointed out the similarities.

Despite this, Dec had another trick up his sleeve, telling producers to zoom out on the image – to reveal that Dennis was “standing” on a stepladder to reach him!

Of course, fans on Twitter were absolutely creasing, with one writing: “I honestly love Ant and Dec’s Dennis Wise bits.”

And another said: “The small man patter is god’s gift to entertainment.”

Elsewhere in the jungle tonight, Toff was voted the new Prime Minister, Jamie and Dennis took six out of 10 stars in a Trial, and Iain moped about as he felt he’d been made a scapegoat in the jungle.
