Ant McPartlin celebrates his 47th birthday in jungle style with emotional message

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! host Ant McPartlin celebrated his 47th birthday in the jungle as he shared an "emotional" video message with fans on Thursday night.

The presenter, who turned 47 on 18 November, and co-host Declan Donnelly took part in an Instagram Live after Thursday's show aired as it was his birthday in Australia due to the time difference.

As he walked onto set, Ant was surprised by crew on the ITV show as they dressed up in Ant masks on set and sang happy birthday several times, even sweetly presenting him with a cake after the show.

In a speech to the crew, Ant, who wore a birthday hat, said: "This is nice, it is quite emotional. It is a pleasure to be back here in Australia for my birthday, I have missed it.

"And the show is going great so thank you so much. Well done everybody. It is a sensational series."

Also during the video, the two presenters were joined by close friend and ITV presenter Stephen Mulhern, who shared his theories about the show.

During the chat, Stephen said that he thinks Chris Moyles will be the first star evicted from the jungle.

Stephen said: "This is going to be quite controversial within the industry, everyone's gonna go 'Oh, you're very brave'. Chris Moyles. I think he'll be the first to go."

He went on to claim: "I just think there is something which isn't quite right."

Dec then said they had received some messages saying Chris was "putting it on" in the Bushtucker Trials and Stephen, 45, added: "You know how much I love the show, I could be like Mystic Meg saying 'this does not feel quite right'."

The TV host also predicted his winner in the conversation on Instagram, going with the person who is currently bookmakers' favourite to be Queen of the Jungle.

He said: "Jill [Scott] I think is a gem. I want her to be my mate, I want her to be my friend, I would love to go out for lunch with her. I think she is going to win without doubt. My top three are Jill, Mike [Tindall] and Owen [Warner]."
