I’m A Celebrity 2021 memorable highs and lows as ITV show comes to an end

The return of I’m a Celebrity … Get me out of here! had been highly anticipated this year – and judging by its looks, the ITV series has undoubtedly been up to par when it comes to entertaining UK audiences.

With the grand finale seeing the King or Queen of the Castle crowned, we can’t help but recall some of the shocking moments that have happened this year in the Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly series.

Among the gruesome trials and terrifying creatures there have been a whole host of ups and downs, from the host duo’s jibing to Prime Minister Boris Johnson to the untimely departure of Richard Madeley.

To rejoin OKAY! as we remember some of Gwrych Castle’s most memorable moments this year.

Ant and Dec vs. Boris Johnson

Ant and Dec mocking Boris Johnson throughout the season grabbed the headlines.

They started off innocently enough, as they first mocked Boris after he stumbled into a speech at the Confederation of British Industry before saying ‘forgive me’ while trying to find his place in his notes.

They later addressed the allegations of a Downing Street Christmas party last year when London was under tight level three restrictions.

Speaking of the change of leader at Gwrych Castle, Ant hilariously told viewers, “They weren’t partying. They emphatically weren’t partying. They flatly deny any accusation that they were partying. “

Ant added, “And this fictional party certainly didn’t involve cheese and wine or a secret Santa Claus.”

The next day they dubbed Boris as they continued to process the leaked clip, which showed Boris’ former political assistant Allegra Stratton joking about the alleged bash.

Viewers were amused to learn that Naughty Boy was reprimanded after smuggling contraband spices on day one.

The successful music producer lived up to his “bad boy” name by opening a small bag of spices while the stars cooked the first night’s dinner.

However, the star was seen having her spices stripped on day one, dashing her dream of brewing a storm in the castle.

After the three-day show was canceled due to Storm Arwen, Ant and Dec hilariously revealed that their campmates tried to smuggle in boiled candy, apples, and even a fake tan in the camp. Good try!

Many stars haven’t taken full advantage of Bucktucker’s horrific tryouts this year, making it some entertaining viewing material.

Elsewhere, Naughty Boy made television gold because he couldn’t shut up while crying in panic during the Savage Stakeout, where he was surrounded by bugs, snakes, toads and rats.

Former Saturday singer Frankie Bridge stunned viewers with a sweeping series of confessions.

She revealed that she had sprayed perfume on all of her panties before the show, reports later revealing that she begged the bosses to let her wash her if her panties smelled like “fish guts.”

Frankie also admitted farting in her sleeping bag and then shared the cheeky gift she once gave her husband Wayne Bridge.

The Loose Women star said, “I got Wayne a cast of my a ** e. He used to say it as a joke. Back in the days when he was playing football, what buy- Does anyone have it all? He was always like, ‘I just want a cast of your ass…’

Storm cancellations

The show was rocked by a three-day cancellation due to the trail of destruction left by Storm Arwen in Wales.

Production staff worked around the clock to make sure the site was back up and running, following extensive damage to the TV.

Gwrych Castle has been said to resemble a “war zone” in the aftermath of the storm, with footage showing substantial damage to the filming location.

The remaining celebrities were taken to individual quarantine facilities where they could not be in contact with others and did not have access to their phones.

Despite the chaos and uncertainty, I’m A Celeb returned after a three day absence.

While this has kept television entertained, Naughty Boy has found himself at the center of many arguments during his time on the show.

The music producer clashed with Frankie and David Ginola.

He also clashed with Kadeena Cox over kitchen duties while falling out with Adam Woodyatt over camp cleaning responsibilities.

Asked by Ant and Dec about its fallout, Naughty Boy insisted he was never “the instigator.”

Frankie’s Unfair Advantage

Viewers fumed as they accused Ant and Dec of helping Frankie during her challenge as she was tied in a cage while rotten food was poured over her.

The couple, who haven’t helped any other campmates on this show, appeared to help the singer as she tried to answer a question about Cornish pies.

“Did you say Swedish?” – which the singer said she had done.

However, home fans were convinced Frankie hadn’t said the correct answer and blasted the hosting duo for their help.
