Declan Donnelly apologises to Andi Peters after mocking him in I’m A Celeb skit

Declan Donnelly has apologised after taking a swipe at TV presenter Andi Peters during a monologue on Sunday night's I'm A Celeb launch show.

With Ant McPartlin making his grand return to the programme, the Geordie duo were back in action for the 19th series of the show.

Dishing out witty one liners and cracking jokes, the TV hosts were back in action following Ant's year off.

The show started with five of the celebrities meeting on a luxury yacht including Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway and former footballer Ian Wright.

After the first VT played, Dec said: "I was thinking, isn't it nice to see a daytime TV presenter standing on a luxury yacht without hearing the words 'you and a friend could win £50,000 for life'."

Turning into a gameshow star, the presenter spun around and pointed to the camera.

Ant added: "Good Andi Peters impression," to which Dec blankly replied: "Who?"

  • I'm a Celeb's Caitlyn Jenner could 'taste her loneliness' during battle with depression

Still running with the joke, Dec continued: "But will those five celebrities be a) confident b) excited or c) absolutely sweating?

"Remember you and a friend could win £50,000 a year for life!"

During the ad break, Andi took to Twitter and explained to the pair their facts were actually wrong.

Writing to his 351,000 followers, he put: "I think you’ll find it’s £100k, in time for Christmas!" adding the hash tag "you've got to be in it to win it".

Dec replied: "I stand corrected! Soz Andi! D x".
