I’m A Celebrity 2020 star Beverley Callard, 63, left fans stunned when she casually referred to her husband Jon McEwan as “megashag”. And forever the jokers, Ant and Dec knew exactly how to carry it on.

After the revelation on Saturday night’s instalment, the Geordie duo certainly didn’t let the hilarious nickname pass them by, urging viewers to get the phrase trending on Twitter.
And on Sunday, they followed it up with the only way they know how – more humour.
Taking to the social media platform once again after the show had ended, the boys posted from their shared account: “Exclusive sneak peak at Bev’s letter from home #ImACeleb.”
Alongside the post was a meme from the popular children’s TV show Spongebob, who was holding a scroll that Ant and Dec had covered with their own message.
“Stay away from that Mo Farah. Love Megashag,” the updated words read.
Fans rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts, with one giggling: “God sakes!”
“Boys!!!!! I’m screaming OMG,” a second commented.
A third noted: “Oh my gee your memes are ridiculous I love it #ImACeleb.”
“OK BUT WHICH ONE OF YOU MADE THIS ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE,” shrieked a fourth.
A fifth laughed so hard that their “ribs hurt” as another classic from the ITV stars left others “howling”.
Bev’s hubby Jon decided to wear his affectionate tag as a badge of honour, and changed his Twitter profile picture to him wearing a jacket embossed with the name “megashag” on the breast.
The biker grinned as he posted: “Finally got a road name I can be proud of!! Thank you @Beverleycallard.”

But while the ITV show maybe bringing the laughs here and there, just two weeks after the Welsh series’ debut there was a recorded huge drop in figures for the first elimination.
Famous for its iconic campmate rivalries, this year all the celebrities have uncharacteristically bonded.
The show’s launch saw 14.3 million viewers tune in for the campmates’ arrival in the castle.
The episode, which aired on November 15, was the its biggest ever launch but according to reports, on average 8.1 million viewers tuned in to watch Paralympian Hollie Arnold become the first celebrity to be eliminated from the series on November 27.
The drop of 6.2 million viewers is being blamed on the show’s “nice” bunch of campmates as ITV sources told the Mail Online the show intended to be “nicer” this year because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The broadcaster pointed out an extra 1.2 million people tuned in to Friday’s elimination compared with the same episode last year.
“It’s clear that this year’s I’m A Celebrity is hugely popular with audiences,” a source told the Mail Online, but fans were quick to notice the differences between this year’s campmates and previous tension-riddled years.
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! continues on ITV tonight at 9pm.
