| Updated:

Vernon Kay stunned I’m A Celeb viewers last night when he stripped off for a shower.

The former Family Fortunes host, 46, used the new shower in Gwrych Castle with the help of campmate Jordan North, who had to pump the water.

However, viewers were left comparing Vernon’s shower scenes to a moment in Christmas classic film Elf.

In the festive movie, actor Will Ferrell is seen as Buddy the Elf attempting to wash in a very small shower.

Another wrote: “Vernon Kay was way too tall for that shower.

“It was like watching buddy the elf being too big for everything in the North Pole.”

A third added: “Vernon Kay looks like Elf in the shower.”

Another joked: “If Vernon dosen’t say ‘the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear’ I will be disappointed,” referring to a line Buddy the Elf says in the movie.

Meanwhile, it wasn’t just viewers who were talking about Vernon’s shower scenes.

His wife, Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly shared a snap of her half-naked husband on her Instagram Stories.

She said: “Shower scene…” followed by a laughing face emoji.

Tess also shared a video of Jordan and Vernon helping each other in the bathroom.

She wrote: “I see a bromance starting.”
