The furore online comes after show hosts Ant and Dec revealed they were told off by series producers for making light of the Bushtucker Trial Space Your Fears.

The affable duo couldn't contain their giggles as they revealed to Iain that they couldn't get over the challenge's 'terrible' name and how the comedian was about to take off on the space hilariously named the Bush Blaster.

While their attempt to remain professional faded quickly, Ant told a confused Iain: 'It’s 2017, we’re dry on ideas' as he continued to laugh.

Getting in on the fun, Iain fired back: 'Is the real space station held up by ropes?'. To which Ant answered without a moment's breath: 'Have you not seen Gravity?'.

Ant began: 'We’ve been a bit rude about the trial tonight, and our producers had a little word with us during the ad break. So we won’t be doing any more of that.'

Dec playfully agreed with much chagrin across his face: 'We're very sorry' as they cheekily looked up to the cameras to apologise some more before breaking into laughter once again.

Despite their telling off, viewers soaked up the pair's witty commentary and endless innuendos during the Space Your Fears Bushtucker Trial.
