On Monday’s show, Fleur East, Emily Atack and Sair Khan were playing a game of snog, marry and push off a cliff around camp, prompting the show hosts to play their own version.
Holly then explained that she’d played the game with some of the crew in the jungle, telling Dec: ‘Marry, snog, push off a cliff, I actually played it with some of my girlfriends on the crew.
Dec responded: ‘You’ve made friends with the crew? Why would you do that? Was there a place for yours truly in this little game of snog, marry, push off a cliff?’
‘Of course there was,’ Holly said, prompting an inquisitive Dec to ask: ‘And where did I end up?’
Holly told him: ‘At the bottom of a cliff,’ to which a grinning Dec hit back: ‘I find that very hard to believe, very hard.’
