Beverley on I’m A Celeb: Viewers in hysterics as she puts her foot in it over Vernon’s career

She wanted to 'curl up and die'

Beverley Callard had I’m A Celeb viewers in hysterics as she made a huge gaffe about Vernon Kay‘s career on tonight’s show (November 24).

During a friendly chat around the fire, talk turned to TV show Splash!.

It kicked off in 2013 and followed a group of celebrities as they learned to dive.

It was hosted by Vernon Kay. Except poor Beverley didn’t realise that when she put her foot in it.
