I’M A Celebrity’s Vernon Kay revealed wife Tess Daly gave him a dig in the arm after he made a werewolf joke during an intimate dinner with Tony and Cherie Blair at Chequers.
The presenter told his campmates what it’s like inside the Prime Minister’s 16th century country retreat in Buckinghamshire on tonight’s show.
When his campmates pointed out the full moon above Gwrych Castle, Vernon jumped at the chance to recall his gag.
During Mr Blair’s time as PM, Vernon and Tess were invited to a formal dinner along with Lord and Lady Sainsbury.
Remembering the PM commenting on a beautiful full moon,Vernon told his co-stars: “I didn’t even look, I just went, yeah Tony, I know, I know, I… (makes a wolf noise)”
Victoria Derbyshire and Beverley Callard found it hilarious and asked if Mr Blair laughed.
Vernon said he did, but Tess was less impressed, giving him a dig in the arm instead.
The former T4 star then said Cherie then gave them a tour of the home.
He told how they saw swords used by Oliver Cromwell, and Mr Blair joked he knew how to use them because Samuel L Jackson had taught him how to use a Lightsaber.
Talking in the Telegraph, Beverley said: “You just don’t expect that in Chequers do you, I want to go.”
While Vernon said to camera: “You just think, big decisions have been made in these rooms and then Tess Daly from Strictly Come Dancing and Vernon Kay from Family Fortunes walk in.”
