I'm A Celebrity: Ant and Dec couldn't resist poking fun at the Great British Bake Off while announcing the latest bushtucker trial our campmates will be forced to face.

On Monday night's episode of the show (14 November), Ant and Dec revealed two celebrities will be forced to endure the Big Bush Bake Off - inspired by none other than Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood's tent of dreams.

And at that, the boys decided to make light of Bake Off's move from the BBC to Channel 4...

Explaining the trial would consist of celebs tucking into jungle delicacies, Ant stole Mary's famous phrase and quipped: "For two celebrities a soggy bottom is guaranteed."

He then told the camera live on air: "That looks like a great trial. So good in fact, that Channel 4 have already bought it for £75 million. Zing!"

Dec then added: "Although, after some painful soul searching, Ant and I have decided that after this series, we won't be hosting that trial anymore. We're very happy where we are."

"We'd like to thank ITV for their continued support," Ant chipped in.

Of course, the pair were referring to the news that broke our hearts in recent months - Mary Bezza has quit Bake Off as it's moving to Channel 4 as of next year.

BBC lost the rights to the baking competition, after failing to reach an agreement with Bake Off's production company, Love Productions.

Channel 4 have since scooped up the show and will broadcast Bake Off in 2017 with a Stand Up To Cancer special in 2017, before resuming its usual series the year after.

Mary decided to quit the show, out of loyalty to the BBC, along with hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. The duo insisted they had made no secret of their hopes for the show to stay where it is, stating at the time of their exit: "We're not going with the dough."

Paul, meanwhile, will continue on Bake Off and has signed a three-year deal with Channel 4 to be a judge on the show.

Over on I'm A Celebrity, meanwhile, Scarlett Moffatt and Carol Vorderman will be taking on the Big Bush Bake Off. It will be Scarlett's second bushtucker trial as she took part in the Tomb of Terror with Ola Jordan, Jordan Banjo and Sam Quek.

The foursome had to endure ten minutes in a tomb with 120,000 critters for company and successfully won all ten meals for camp.

Here's how Twitter reacted to Ant and Dec's GBBO jibe:
