The latest episode of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway sparked some backlash, however, as fans accused a guest of cheating in order to win the big prize on offer. As the newly-announced I’m A Celebrity South Africa campmates helped guests win a Florida trip, eagle-eyed viewers believe one of the winners had “cheated”.

Audience member Satty stormed through the three rounds to win the prize on Saturday’s instalment of the ITV favourite.

Three audience members had been selected to participate in the game, and celebrity guests had to read words for them to guess.

Former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan was tasked with assisting Satty, who was provided with noise-cancelling headphones.

In honour of her taking part in the I’m A Celebrity spin-off, Helen read out names of South African animals.

While other guests had failed to answer most correctly, Satty sailed through.

“Satty, here are your headphones – stick them on for us,” Dec Donnelly requested as the round began.

Satty placed the headphones on and it seemed he couldn’t hear what was going on.

Helen’s first word was antelope, which Satty correctly guessed within seconds.

He went on to correctly identify Helen was saying buffalo and giraffe.

Ant and Dec quickly informed the guest he’d won and he immediately began to celebrate.

“How do you feel?” Ant McPartlin asked, to which Satty responded: “Very good”.

However, some viewers believed the guest hadn’t been wearing the headphones correctly and could in fact hear.
