Anne Hegerty insulted Holly Willoughby’s presenting skills before I’m A Celebrity

Anne Hegerty and Holly Willoughby had an awkward exchange years before their I’m A Celebrity meeting, it has been revealed.

Tough-talking star of the Chase Anne openly bashed Holly’s presenting style during an appearance on the This Morning sofa.

Newly resurfaced footage shows Anne giving a not so subtle dig at Holly and her co-host Phil Schofied when they asked for her opinion on The Chase’s host Bradley Walsh.

Addressing Holly and Phil, Anne said: "I’ve been watching you two for years and nobody can be as good as Bradley.

"Apologies, but nobody can be as good as Brad," she repated.

Holly burst into stunned giggles while Phil simply looked on in shock.

"Wow! That came out of nowhere. I wasn’t expecting that," said Phil.

"Anyway, thanks for coming in," he continued in a mock-annoyed tone.

Holly and Dec looked on in horror

Last night Anne and Holly were reunited as The Governess took on the Monstrous Monoliths challenge, the second Bushtucker Trial of the series.

Despite her efforts, Anne was forced to quit the trial after gaining just two stars as bugs, slime and fish guts rained down on her.

When Anne emerged from her ordeal, Holly stepped in to comfort her saying: "You tested yourself and you’ve done brilliantly. We’re really proud of you."

Dec added: "Well done for coming down here and facing it head on. That takes guts."

Despite her failure in the task, viewers at home were fully supportive of the Chase star.

Anne, who was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, has had a tough ride in the jungle so far.

She became the first celebrity to break down in tears on the very first night, admitting she felt overwhelmed by the experience.

But Anne will get a break tonight after it was revealed John Barrowman had been voted to complete the next Bushtucker Trial.

Mirror Online has contacted representatives for comment.
