I’m A Celeb’s Beverley Callard is left red-faced as she calls Vernon Kay’s show Splash ‘the most stupid programme ever’


I’M A Celeb’s Beverley Callard was left red-faced tonight as she called Vernon Kay’s show Splash ‘the most stupid programme ever’.

The celebrities have been getting to know each other since being thrown together last week on the ITV show.

In tonight’s episode, they were seen chatting round the fire when talk turned to a previous ITV celebrity show, Splash!

Former Coronation Street actress Beverley, 63, said she thought it was the “most stupid programme ever”.

But Vernon, 46, replied: “It kept my central heating on though Beverley.”

The celebrities then reminded Beverley that Vernon used to present it alongside Gabby Logan when it aired in 2013 and 2014.

Mortified, Beverley said: “Oh no, I’m so sorry, Vernon, I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry” as everyone burst out laughing.

Talking in the Telegraph, Beverley said: “I wanted to curl up and die, poor Vernon. I’m notorious for putting my foot in it, and I really did there.”

Splash! saw a group of celebrities try to master the art of diving with the help of Olympic medallist Tom Daley.

Celebrities who took part across the two series included former Towie stars Gemma Collins and Joey Essex, Perri Kiely from Diversity and Danielle Lloyd.

Viewers found Bev’s faux pas hilarious and took to Twitter to comment.

One wrote: “Obsessed with Bev telling Vernon Kay, the host of Splash, that she hated Splash.”

Another tweeted: “The way Beverley said “that was the most stupid show” I’m f***ing dead. Vernon just sat there like “it pays for the heating, Beverley…”
