I’m a Celebrity.. Get Me Out of Here! hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly made a cheeky grab for Prince Charles’ baubles.
The presenting duo were at a Christmas bash in Buckingham Palace when they were on the lookout for a souvenir.
They had bagged the royal invite after filming a TV series with the Prince of Wales.
Dec said: “We were ridiculously excited to be going to Buckingham Palace for the first time.
“We were shown into the main hall and Rod Stewart was there so we headed over to say ‘hi’ to him... while keeping our eyes peeled for potential souvenirs.”
The Geordies, both 45, confessed the “crime” in their book Once Upon A Tyne.
Dec said: “We noticed the only possible available trinket to nick, I mean liberate, was on the Christmas tree.
“As you can imagine, it was a Christmas tree bigger than any Christmas tree you’ve ever seen, and it had these baubles hanging from it in the shape of crowns.”
Ant added: “I took one off the tree to examine it. I’d had it in my hand for approximately 2.6 seconds, when one of the footmen appeared behind me and delicately but firmly whispered in my ear: ‘Don’t even think about it’.”
The cheeky revelation comes after Ant and Dec delighted I'm a Celebrity viewers today by seemingly confirming the Celebrity Cyclone challenge would be making a reappearance this series.
Photos taken by Gwrych Castle appear to show the challenge being set up, as they revealed a huge slip 'n' slide and obstacles being set up.
And Ant and Dec seemingly confirmed the news on Twitter on Wednesday as they replied saying "coming soon" to a fan asking if the challenge would be going ahead this year.
