Sofa critics all over tuned into the long-awaited I'm A Celeb final over the weekend (10 December) which saw Sam Thompson being crowned King of the Jungle.
While the Made in Chelsea star emerged as the victor of the series, he was joined by runner-up Tony Bellew, Nigel Farage, who came in third place to the title, and This Morning's Josie Gibson who came in fourth.
The reunion episode graced our screens last night (13 December) and, during the segment, the presenting duo opened up the sealed envelope which contained the name of the celeb they thought would win from way back when in November.
Ant and Dec both chuckled as they both shared with viewers the person they had written down last month on the piece of paper was Sam - making their prediction correct given the fact he went on to win.
However, some eagle-eyed fans of the show reckon the heartwarming moment was all a facade as they recalled how the pair had already opened the envelope a few days back during an Instagram Live.
During that envelope reveal, it showed both Ant and Dec had actually written down another star as the predicted winner - not Sam.
Fans have since rushed to social media to share their outrage at the alleged blunder with one X, formerly Twitter, user hitting out: "Ant and Dec doing these predictions but going live after the show and not one of them guessed Sam was going to win is the funniest fake thing I’ve ever seen. Both of them said Josie."
A second speculated: "Anyone notice the huge mistake in Ant and Dec predictions last night?"
"Ant and Dec [are] little liars about their predictions lol," penned a third.
A fourth asked: "How come Ant and Dec's predictions on I'm A Celeb's coming out show were Sam when I saw jungle club on Instagram Live just after the final and they both predicted Josie?"
"For those confused about Ant and Dec's predictions that was a sketch," claimed another. "They predicted Josie to win in real life on their Insta jungle club Live."
A final user echoed: "But didn't they open their predictions to who would win on their live stream and both of them said Josie?"
