I’m A Celebrity’s Dec Donnelly reveals Holly Willoughby taught him to how to help stars cheat in trials


DEC Donnelly has admitted he IS making I’m A Celebrity’s trials easier – because Holly Willoughby taught him to how to help stars cheat.

Holly, 39, stood in for Ant McPartlin in 2018 alongside Dec – who says she went out of her way to give celebrities a chance to win more stars.

Ant and Dec have been accused of being ‘soft’ on the celebrities

In a text sent to Holly and her co-star Phillip Schofield, the 44-year-old shifted the blame on today’s This Morning.

Discussing fan theories that the I’m A Celebrity hosts are helping stars get more stars for camp, Phil said: “There’s a little bit of controversy online as to whether or not it’s a bit easier this year in the castle.

“They’re using lots of British produce, homemade fish guts, stuff like that.

“People are asking if the boys are helping too much, did they help Shane too much yesterday?

Holly Willoughby helped stars ‘cheat’

“I said on the show yesterday, my opinion is Dec has certainly softened since he worked with Holly and Ant has followed suit now.

“I think they are helping people more. Holly showed them the way by cheating a little bit.”

Outraged Holly attempted to argue back, but was shut down when Phil read out a text from Dec himself.

Phil added: “Dec said yesterday in a text sent to both of us: ‘I never ever helped in the trials, ever, until Holly showed me how to. It’s your fault they got as many as six, Holly’.”

Holly joked: “You’re welcome.” 

Shane won 12 stars for camp

HOAR revealed today I’m A Celebrity trials are being filmed in a studio.

It is the second fakery row to hit the show after we told yesterday how stars were walked through challenges in advance.
