Ant and Dec’s separation on I’m A Celeb sends Twitter into meltdown
Ant and Dec were temporarily separated during last night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and it sent viewers into a complete frenzy online… so much so that ITV have promised never to do it again!
Think about it. Have you ever actually seen the famous Geordie duo apart from one another before? Well, if you were tuned into I’m A Celeb last night you will have gotten to witness this complete travesty first hand. And the reaction on Twitter was really quite hilarious.
The two presenters were briefly split up in order to speak to the divided camps during last night’s show and the whole of the internet agreed: it was just plain unnatural.
Twitter quickly erupted with posts from shocked viewers who were struggling to come to terms with what they were seeing:
2016 brought things we’d never thought happen last year:
Leicester BPL Champions

Am I the only person who has survived the temporary separation of Ant and Dec emotionally unscathed? I found it quite exhilarating.#ImACeleb

Ant & Dec on their own was not right, it was like watching a unicycle roll into the camps. #ImACeleb

Before we all descend into an utter breakdown, however, we can at least feel reassured that we won’t have to see this again. It goes to show how massive the online reaction was that ITV released an actual statement this morning, saying: “Last night we made a mistake. We apologise to the nation. We promise we will NEVER split @antanddec again.”
