Ant & Dec

Many fans were unhappy about the joke that some people labelled 'distasteful'...

I'm A Celebrity is always full of shocking and sometimes controversial moments, but this year many of them happened outside of the jungle.

After Scarlett talked about contacting celebrated genius Professor Stephen Hawking with a theory about time travel, Ant & Dec split opinions by making a joke that seemed to be at his expense. The pair claimed to have his phone number and a computerised voice pretended to be the much-loved academic.

Of course people quickly took to social media to share their thoughts about it...

But it turns out Stephen Hawking is a fan of the show (or maybe he just saw all the comments online), but he got in touch with Ant & Dec to tell them what he thought of their impression.

Speaking to The Mirror, Dec claimed, “We got an email from Stephen Hawking after that.”

“He said he enjoyed her thoughts on the pyramids and enjoyed the sketch that we did in the studio. So that was a highlight.”

Well there you go then people.

THE Stephen Hawking has confirmed that he thought Ant & Dec's joke was funny.

Lets hope in the next series of I'm A Celeb all the drama happens inside the camp!
