I’M A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! fans were in hysterics this evening as Victoria Derbyshire swooned over Beverley Callard’s “magnificent breasts”.
It took less than 24 hours for this year’s campmates to become over-familiar with each other as they were seen bonding in tonight’s launch show.

Viewers were thrilled to have the ITV reality series return to our screens, and the celebs didn’t have long to wait before they were faced with their first Bushtucker Trial.
In an abrupt introduction to castle life, the 10 stars took on The Gates To Hell – with each celeb in a cage as they passed stars to one another.
After the trial, Beverley screamed and jumped as she found a bug in her pocket, saying that it was her “worst nightmare”.
And when they returned to camp, the former Coronation Street star suggested that everybody debugged in one area so that they didn’t fill their living quarters with creepy-crawlies.

The jumpy actress was so unnerved by the task that Victoria ended up offering to check her boobs for bugs when Beverley said that she could feel something crawling in her bra.
And the 52-year-old journalist had no complaints as she heaped praise on 63-year-old Bev’s body.
She gushed:”Magnificent breasts, what a cleavage!”
But Beverley remained modest as she insisted: “Oh my God, they’re pushed up beyond belief.”

Fans at home found the entire exchange hilarious and flocked to Twitter to share their reaction.
One wrote: “I just want someone to look at me the way Victoria Derbyshire looks at Beverley Callard’s breasts.”
Another added: “‘Magnificent breasts’, Victoria Derbyshire – 2020 Quote of the season!”
A third agreed: “Victoria Derbyshire complimenting Liz from Corrie’s knockers is something I never had on the 2020 bingo card.”

Victoria previously told The Sun that she has bespoke swimsuits for I’m A Celeb’s infamous shower scenes after undergoing a mastectomy to treat breast cancer.
The BBC star beat the disease after being diagnosed in 2015 and had a single mastectomy to remove her breast which helped rid her body of the disease.
She told us: “You’ve got to take some swimwear so I’ve got a couple of swimsuits that are post-mastectomy swimsuits.
“They’ve got extra padding at the front because I had a breast removed a few years ago. So I don’t feel exposed in them it’s a proper swimsuit, it’s not a bikini, so that makes me feel OK about that.”

In 2015 Victoria announced via Twitter that she had breast cancer, and then recorded video diaries of her battle with the disease.
The vlogs detailed everything about her tough treatments from chemo and radiotherapy to her eventual mastectomy.
“I won’t know what I’m going to be like in the trials and the environment until I get there, but going through cancer treatment was quite a big deal and some of it was pretty painful,” she added.
“So I try and tell myself what I went through a few years ago, what I’m about to go through cannot of course be like that.

“I’ll have to have a word with myself and focus if there is a spider crawling over me if I need to, and say ‘I have experienced much worse'”.
The popular news-reader has joined famous faces Mo Farah, Hollie Arnold, Jordan North, Vernon Kay, AJ Pritchard, Jessica Plummer and Beverley Callard, and Giovanna Fletcher in the 2020 line-up.
She was approached by I’m A Celeb bosses during the first lockdown and jumped at the chance, saying her sons Ollie, 16, and Joe, 13, wouldn’t have let her turn it down.
This year’s I’m A Celeb is being filmed at Gwrych Castle in North Wales after travel restrictions amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic prevented the cast and crew from jetting out to their usual Australian location.
