Ant and Dec, as well as Fred Sirieix, look serious

I’m A Celeb news: Ant and Dec ‘hate’ Fred Sirieix, fans claim

Viewers reckon they're pleased he's out of there…

In the latest I’m A Celeb news, viewer have speculated that show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly don’t massively like First Dates star Fred Sirieix.

Fans previously reckoned Ant ‘stuck up’ for Fred when it came to his exchanges with Josie Gibson.

But as Fred departed the ITV jungle reality series last night (Tuesday December 5), detractors of Fred on social media made out as if Ant and Dec shared their viewpoint.

I’m A Celeb news: ‘He’s starting to pee them off’

The claims came as the co-hosts and Fred talked over each other during Fred’s exit interview.

Fans suggested Ant and Dec – known for cheekily teasing interview subjects for their entire broadcasting careers – may have been annoyed by Fred’s demeanour.

“Haha Fred is clearly irritating Ant and Dec too! #ImACeleb,” one user chuckled.

I think he’s even starting to pee Ant and Dec off.

Another fan claimed: “Acting like the big I am every episode. I think he’s even starting to pee Ant and Dec off.”

While someone else tweeted: “Even Ant and Dec are sick of Fred omg.”

Others detected a sense of hostility between the presenting duo and the French TV personality.

“I love Ant and Dec constantly making digs at Fred,” someone posted.

Additionally, another claimed: “Fred really must be awful for Ant and Dec to be making these comments.”

Furthermore, one viewer even went so far in their OTT assessment to try and claim Ant and Dec “hate” Fred.

However, they also claimed to believe the entire line-up of celebrity campmates felt the same level of antipathy, too.

“Even Ant and Dec clearrrrrly hate Fred,” they said. “Everyone in the camp clearly hates him too.”

ED! has approached representatives for I’m A Celebrity, Ant and Dec, and Fred Sirieix for comment.
