I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here viewers were left howling as Richard Madeley took on a trial – and accidentally dropped some sexual innuendos. 


Richard had to take on the Castle Kitchen Nightmares challenge in which he had to find a series of stars to feed the camp in a hellish kitchen setting full of bugs and critters. 

To add to the difficulty, as well as having to avoid spiders and rats, Richard also had to dive down a rubbish chute full of rotten fruit and vegetable and fish guts and untie stars from a rope to win each campmate a meal. 

Richard’s inner Alan Partridge came flooding to the surface when faced with the challenge, and uttered statements including ‘This is really, really hard,’ and something which Dec Donnelly interpreted as ‘it’s as tight as a penis drum’. Whatever that means…

The icing on the cake was Richard telling Ant and Dec that he could not get one of the stars, adding: ‘I can’t undo it, it’s wet and it’s tight.’

Viewers were quick to spot his accidental innuendos, tweeting: ‘Richard Madeley is brilliant. “It’s wet and tight”’ and ‘As tight as a what?…a penis drum…’

Others added: ‘Peak Alan Partridge!!’, ‘It’s wet and it’s tight sounds a bit sexual’ and ‘Richard just dropped an innuendo there…’

Unfortunately, the knots proved so wet and tight that Richard only managed to get four stars, meaning four meals for the camp, despite his best efforts. 

He told the cameras: ‘I hope when I explain to them what I had to do and how difficult it was, technically as it were, they’ll understand that we didn’t get quite as many as we wanted.’
