I’m A Celebrity featured creepy jester Dave last night and viewers think they have worked out who did the voice.

Thursday (November 19) evening’s episode saw West End star Ruthie Henshall and singer Russell Watson carry out some hilarious pranks – under the orders of the castle’s jester painting.

What happened with the jester in I’m A Celebrity?

Ruthie was alone near the picture when it suddenly spoke to her, telling her in a raspy voice that, if she could successfully get someone to give her a bare foot massage, she would win four luxury items for camp.

Later, the painting – which the camp called Dave – got Russell in on the act too and he had to pretend he’d seen a ghost.

The pair also had to intentionally get Shane Richie and Beverley Callard’s challenge question wrong.

Who did I’m A Celeb viewers think was behind the jester’s voice?

A number of those watching thought comedian Joe Lycett was the jester, while some wondered if it was ITV presenter Stephen Mulhern, or even host Ant McPartlin or Dec Donnelly.

Others wondered if it was actor Christopher Biggins.

One said on Twitter: “Is it me or does the jester have a @joelycett tone to his voice behind the Welsh accent?”

Another said: “Is that the voice of @joelycett as the jester? #ImACeleb.”
