Declan Donnelly has reassured fans after appearing with an injured arm on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

I'm A Celebrity 2019 started on ITV tonight (Sunday, November 17) with Ant and Dec hosting.


The pair were reunited after Ant stepped down from last year's show.

As this year's I'm A Celebrity line up were introduced, fans noticed what appeared to be a nasty injury on Dec's arm.

He told a viewer on Twitter who asked about what happened: "Nothing exciting unfortunately. I scalded myself while sterilising Isla’s [Dec's daughter] dummies! 😂 D"

One fan reacted: "oh dec 😂😂 life of a dad"

Another replied: "You couldn’t have made a more Dec answer up if you tried 😂"

I'm A Celebrity continues nightly on ITV at 9PM.


This year's celebrities include ex-football and broadcaster Ian Wright MBE; pop star Nadine Coyle; 'Rak-Su' singer Myles Stephenson; Radio 1 DJ Adele Roberts and comedian Andrew Maxwell.

They're joined by soap star Jacqueline Jossa; Capital Radio DJ Roman Kemp; Olympian and TV personality Caitlyn Jenner; ex-England rugby player James Haskell; and TV and radio presenter Kate Garraway.

In the first bushtucker trial vote, Kate and Caitlyn were chosen by the public to take on 'Bugged Off'.

They'll face 50,000 critters and 25 rats as they're strapped into boxes suspended 20 metres in the air.


The trial will play out in Monday night's episode (November 18).

Alongside the main show, Extra Camp airs nightly on ITV2.
