I’m A Celeb Ant McPartlin in awkward police joke 2 years after drink-drive ban

I'm a Celebrity presenter Ant McPartlin cracked an awkward joke about running from the police on last night's now two years after his drink driving conviction.

Ant was arrested by police after being involved in a car crash in West London in March 2018 and was later convicted of being intoxicated behind the wheel and fined £86,000.

His co-presenter Declan Donnelly was speaking on last night's show when he made a blunder with his lines and said the pair were expecting a visit from cops.

Ant, 44, then shouted "what?" and mimed the words "running away".

Speaking on a video link in the episode Ant said: "Before the break we saw Hollie and Giovanna successfully complete the first castle coin challenge, Eat Your Words."

Dec, 44, then said: "Which means it's time for another police… police?"

"What?" yelled Ant as he grabbed his co-host's shoulder and mimed preparing to do a runner.

Dec then went on: "Police! It's time for another visit from the police. Not that we've had a visit from the police already.

"Everything's all above board here."

After his conviction the presenter took a break from his presenting roles, including Britain's Got Talent and I'm A Celebrity.

He was replaced on the 2018 I'm A Celeb by ITV favourite Holly Willoughby and then returned to the show last year.

The I'm a Celeb crew were in stitches last night after Ant dropped a gag about his divorce from Lisa Armstrong.

Amt moved out of the £5million West London home he shared with Lisa when they split up and later moved in with girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett.

Ant began talking about washing his own underwear after campmate Jordan North admitted he hadn't changed his pants since he'd entered the castle.

Co-host Dec asked said: "You have got to change your undies every day. You have got to.

Do you change your undies every day?"

And a proud Ant replied: "Absolutely. Clean undies every day. I change them every day.

"And do you know how I know they are clean? I wash them myself."

He went on: "I do. I do. Clean undies every morning. Yes, the kitchen sink in my static home has many uses."

Dec said: "Well, you sound like you have landed on your feet a beet with this static home

"Have you got a washing line as well to dry them on?"

Ant beamed: "Better than that, my friends. I dry them… in my bedroom!"

A confused Dec asked: "In the bedroom?"

Ant went on: "Yes, in the bedroom. You see, the wind just rushes on through the broken window and – bam! – they are dry."

His pal said: "Right, I see. It is win, win then, isn't it?"
