I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! fans were left in hysterics after last night's episode saw campmates testing out the shower for the first time.

TV presenter Vernon Kay was one of the first stars alongside BBC Radio 1's Jordan North to use the new shower in Gwrych Castle, north Wales.

But it became clear that the shower was some sort of an obstacle for Vernon, at 6ft 3in, as his head and shoulders towered over the top of the makeshift curtain.

While a few fans prepared themselves for the famous scene-stealing moment – including his wife Tessa Daly who took to Instagram to share a clip from the episode, and said: "Shower scene!" – many others – including host Ant – compared the moment to a scene in the 2013 Christmas hit Elf.

The film sees 6ft 2in Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf attempting to wash in a shower similar to the one in the castle.

One person wrote: "Seeing Vernon Kay in the shower reminded of Elf! #ImACeleb "

Another added: "Started I’m a celeb late but my god Vernon Kay looks like Buddy the Elf in that shower."

A third said: "Ant comparing Vernon to Buddy the Elf. Actually crying."

And Ant also joked: "Doesn't he remind you of Buddy the Elf?" as the camera cut to the studio.

This comes as the show's usual steamy shower scenes have been axed.

While TV chiefs are eager to give the show its usual sexy look after moving it from the scorching Australian jungle to wet and windy Wales, the stars will be washing in rusty old bath, which has a watering can as a shower head.

To get clean, the campers will have to ask someone else to pump the water.

Show producer Tom Gould said about the new shower: "It is not a one man job in the castle, you need your friend to pump and it comes out of a watering can.

"You have got a bit more privacy than you have in the jungle with a modesty screen, but not a huge amount of privacy" reports Daily Star.
