A GB News poll shows support for the I'm a Celebrity duo

A GB News poll shows the public believe Ant and Dec are right to mock Boris Johnson over the Downing Street Christmas party allegations.

On an episode of ITV's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here, the popular Geordie duo - who have already made fun of the Prime Minister on a number of occasions - referenced the allegations, saying that the show’s contestants “categorically deny” any suggestion they had a party in the Welsh castle.

While introducing the next segment, Donnelly said: “It is all changing in camp now because yesterday the celebs chose a new leader via the gift of a secret vote.”

McPartlin continued: “And that means David’s reign is over. But they weren’t celebrating. They categorically deny any suggestions that they had a party.

“And this fictional party definitely didn’t involve cheese and wine, or a Secret Santa.”

Donnelly then looked directly into the camera and said: “Evening Prime Minister… for now.”

In a poll posted on the GB News Twitter feed - posing the question whether it was right for Ant and Dec to poke fun at Boris Johnson - more than five thousand people voted with the majority showing support of the presenters.

Over 75% of the voters said Ant and Dec should be mocking the Prime Minister, with 24.7% saying it's wrong for them to do so.

Ian said: "It's called 'satire' and hit the spot exactly..."

Joe replied, tweeting: "Absolutely, everybody should be poking fun at him, especially after that video emerged."

One user replied saying they had found a new respect for the duo, but another added: "They should not have gone political. This year's show is a disaster"
