Ant McPartlin has debuted a huge, new tattoo Down Under.
Ant and his co-host Declan Donnelly are about to kick off this year’s I’m A Celebrity in Australia, and posing together on set for new snaps, the former showcased his sprawling new inking.
Situated on his right arm, at first glance it looks like a circular pattern, but the piece is actually a tribute to one of the most famous musicians to ever exist.
The black-and-white mosaic is a nod to Beatles frontman John Lennon, with the word at the centre of the pattern reading: “Imagine,” which was, of course, the title of Lennon’s biggest hit.
The mosaic is called Strawberry Fields and the original is located in Central Park, where Lennon lived and died.
It’s not the only tattoo Ant has gotten in recent years. He also has an ‘A’ etched into his chest, a sweet nod to his wife, Anne-Marie Corbett.
On Ant’s right forearm is an arrow, which is thought to represent moving in a positive forward direction.
On the I’m A Celebrity front, the likes of Mike Tindall, Chris Moyles and Olivia Attwood will all appear on this year’s show, with the latter recently revealing that she’s come up with a secret way to communicate with her fiance, Bradley Dack, while she’s taking part in the show.
Speaking to The Sun at Brisbane Airport, she said: “I am scared of me, in terms of how long the other campmates can tolerate me. I will get myself in trouble somehow, the usual.”
When asked what she would miss about home, she replied: “God, it's day one so not much at the minute but in three or four days the dogs and my fiancé probably.”
But perhaps the biggest I’m A Celeb news of the week came courtesy of Matt Hancock, with the former Health Secretary revealing he’s signed up for the show.
As a result of his signing up to the popular reality show, Hancock had the Tory whip suspended with immediate effect, according to Chief Whip Simon Hart.
He’s unlikely to enter the camp Down Under alongside the ten starting campmates on Sunday (6 November) and instead will arrive as a latecomer.
An insider told the Sun: "Matt is a sensational signing for the show as producers love a star with a story to tell - and they always hope they'll spill the beans round the campfire.”
