Declan Donnelly vigorously TWERKS on I’m A Celebrity as he ‘competes for screen time’ with Holly

I’m A Celebrity viewers have so far been loving the chemistry between Declan Donnelly and co-host Holly Willoughby, who was been filling in for regular Ant McPartlin this year.

And the new duo continued to make light of their new partnership on Monday night’s instalment of the ITV reality show.

Holly mused: "You know what it’s like you put two TV presenters together, big egos and both of them wanting as much screen time as possible.

"It’s a little bit pathetic, if you ask me," she added.

Dec agreed before offering to do the next link for her.

"I was going to do it actually," interjected Holly. She then asked cameraman Chris to give her an extreme close-up.

"That is better, look at the lighting. I love a close-up ," enthused Holly as she toyed with her blonde locks.

But as she went to deliver the link to camp, she was hilariously interrupted by Dec who had jumped into shot by crawling on the table in front of her on all fours.

He then stole the lines from his co-host before giving a cheeky twerk of his bum.

Holly has so far proved a huge hit with viewers with a whopping 11 million people tuning in to watch her debut, making it the show’s biggest launch since 2013.

The reality show’s overnight ratings were also the biggest of any TV show this year, aside from the World Cup, with 51% of the audience share.

And it’s said that jungle bosses are “over the moon” after not only bringing Holly in to replace Ant, but also spending big money to get in some household names, including former footballer manager Harry Redknapp and Deal or No Deal’s Noel Edmonds.
