I’m a Celebrity Viewers were taken aback by a remark made by host Declan Donnelly during the show’s finale.
As he and his co-host Ant McPartlin introduced the show with their usual jokes, Dec. 46 said, “The DFS sale came early, every celebrity has to go! But which one will you choose?
Ant joked, “Frankie – sleek, modern, sleek. Danny – durable, well built and reliable. Or Simon – generously padded, comfortable and the manufacturers recommend not to let it tear.
Dec added: “Tonight we will see the three of them have their last trial before one becomes castle royalty. “
And Ant continued, “Whoever it is, tomorrow morning they’re going to look at their bank account and think of one thing. “
Before Dec delivered the last sentence, “Why did I spend three weeks making a TV show that doesn’t have a cash prize.” “
However, it looks like the joke was missed by many viewers as many took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One of them wrote: “They don’t win cash prizes because they are already paid a fortune. “
Another said: ‘Why did they do a TV show with no cash prizes? Because they were paid before they even entered.
And a third added: “The ‘no cash prize’ gag would have been funny if it hadn’t been for the fact that they’re all literally getting paid to go. “
The finale saw Loose Women star Frankie Bridge, Emmerdale’s Danny Miller and Coronation Street actor Simon Gregson compete in the audience vote.
But it was Danny, 30, who was ultimately crowned King of the Castle.
