During a segment on Sunday’s final, Ant was about to introduce the next clip of the three finalists eating their last meal of the series.
Prior to this, Dec chimed in: “Before we do that, and before we bring the curtain down on this year’s show, we are always looking ahead. Rest assured folks, we are looking ahead.”
Forward planning is the key to success! 😉 #ImACeleb @antanddec https://t.co/tzjtWVJ4zi

Hilariously demonstrating their commitment to “looking ahead,” Dec then held up a campmate T-shirt with the name Boris on it and said: “We can let you into a little secret. We have already booked our first celebrity for next series, next year, already.
“So that is something to look forward to. Evening Prime Minister.”
Throughout the series, Ant and Dec have made joking jibes at Johnson with their “Evening Prime Minister” shtick.
“If we have learned one thing in the last 24 hours, it is that you can’t get away with covering things up.”
Dec then joked: “No, that will come back to bite them at some point. It might take a year – but it will happen.”
They even gained the attention of Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, who gave the duo an unexpected shout-out during PMQs last Wednesday (December 8).
Starmer told the Commons: “Ant and Dec are ahead of the prime minister on this. The prime minister has been caught red-handed,” he added, prompting laughter in the chamber.
Giving a nod to their mention at PMQs, Dec partially quoted Starmer that day in Wednesday’s show, saying: “Even Ant and Dec are ahead of the prime minister – sorry, Danny Miller – on this one. Don’t worry, we will launch an inquiry or something. Not that that will do anything.”
It’s fair to say viewers loved the presenters having one last jibe at Johnson.
Ant and Dec taking the piss out of Boris Johnson has been an absolute highlight of this series 👏🏼😂 #ImACeleb… https://t.co/FCtzjvfN1j
