Ant McPartlin begs EastEnders' Danny Dyer to 'name his price' for I'm A Celeb 2023

I'm A Celebrity host Ant McPartlin has called on Danny Dyer to 'name his price' in a bid to get him to join the lineup for the ITV series next year.

As Geordie duo Ant and Dec get stuck into the last week of this year's jungle mayhem, they are both looking forward to next year - and they already have some exciting names up their sleeves.

During their Instagram Live on Wednesday following the live elimination where Babatunde Aleshe was the fifth celebrity to be axed from the jungle, Ant and Dec asked avid I'm A Celebrity fans to send in the names of some famous faces who they hope to see on next year's series.

Naturally, EastEnders star Danny Dyer's name was immediately thrown into the mix, as was music moguls Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh, as well as other fans calling for Gemma Collins to make an epic comeback.

While both Ant and Dec agreed that Louis, Gemma, and Simon would all make amazing jungle campmates, Ant was particularly excited about the prospect of getting Danny Dyer on the show.

"Now that would be an interesting watch," he enthused.

"Danny Dyer! That would be incredible. Look, name your price Danny Dyer. Name your price - that's all you have to do.

"Let's get him on the show guys! Name your price," he added.

Ant and Dec's hilarious Instagram Live came after Babatunde Aleshe left the jungle for good.

The Geordie duo announced who would be leaving, just days before the live final on Sunday.

As the result came in, Babatunde said his goodbyes - leaving six stars remaining on the 2022 series.

On leaving them, he thanked his new friends for his time on the show and said it was 'the best experience he had ever had'.

The comedian soon left the presenters laughing seconds into his exit interview, as he spilled a glass of champagne over himself.

Babatunde told Ant and Dec he wanted Owen Warner to win the show, calling the actor his 'closest friend' in camp.

The comedian also revealed he was surprised how different it was doing the show to watching it as a viewer, telling the pair: "Living in it is a whole different experience."

Naturally, viewers were gutted to be Babatunde leave the jungle so soon to the grand finale.

I'm A Celebrity airs every night at 9pm on ITV and ITVX.
