Caught rapid! Ant and Dec did NOT realise their mics were still on

It must get fairly stressful to be broadcasting live from the Australian jungle every evening – especially when you're trying to keep a cast of hungry reality stars in check.

Usually, Ant and Dec, the long-time hosts of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! take all the mishaps and glitches in their stride.

But during one particularly tiresome moment earlier this week, Dec couldn't help sound off a bit.

The only problem? His mic was still on, meaning his words were broadcast live to millions of ITV viewers.

Ant and Dec were talking to contestant Vicki Pattison over the phone, but technical difficulties meant she couldn't hear what they were saying.

In the end a member of the production crew in the camp relayed the message to Vicki, telling her to head to the Bush Telegraph with Duncan Bannatyne and George Shelley.

Clearly annoyed at having to deal with the dodgy phone lines live on air, Dec could be heard saying, "Why didn't they just do that in the first place instead of you having to ring her?"

Listen to the awkward moment here from 0:45…

The technical difficulties didn't end there though, as Ferne McCann got cut off during another call just minutes later, while Vicky, George and Duncan struggled to hear Ant and Dec from the Bush Telegraph.

Here's a tip… don't rely on phones when broadcasting live from a rainforest.
