I’m A Celeb fans spot blunder as Ant and Dec pronounce Giovanna’s name completely wrong
I'M A Celeb fans plead with hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnely to get Giovanna Fletcher's name right.
The eagle eye viewers noticed Ant and Dec struggled to pronounce the podcast host's name correctly during last night's premiere episode.
Ant and Dec shouted encouragement at Giovanna during the Gate to Hell challenge, but fans were getting very annoyed at their constant mispronunciation of her name.
"Hi, absolutely loving the show so far but can Ant and Dec please learn how to pronounce Gi's name correctly please? It is Gi Van Na, the o isn't pronounced and it is like van not varn. Or just say Gi," wrote one disgruntled fan on Twitter.
Another added: "Dear @antanddec Loving the show, but it's annoying me how you pronounce @MrsGiFletcher name. It's "Gee-Vanna" not "Geo-Varna" Thanks!"
A third said: "Someone teach Ant how to say Gi's name properly lmao."
The Gates to Hell challenge saw the celebs trying to pass stars along to each other through cages as they were pelted with disgusting creepy crawlies.
Giovanna has confirmed her place as favourite, fearlessly abseiling down a cliff face in the series' first challenge.
But she also might have got herself in hot water as she was found to be using secret hand signals on the show to reassure her kids, her McFly star husband Tom Fletcher has revealed.
The author, 35, was forced say goodbye to her three boys, Max, two, Buzz, six and Buddy, four to take part in the series which kicked off at Gwrych Castle in Wales yesterday.
Giovanna was seen touching her nose and wiggling her fingers near the end of the show last night as celebs were told by presenters Ant and Dec who would be taking part in the first trials.
Tom, 35, was on This Morning with his McFly bandmates today discussing the upcoming release of the group's first album in ten years and Giovanna's stint on the show.
The singer told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that Giovanna's gesture was a way of her communicating with her brood.
Holly pointed out she saw Giovanna make a hand movement on the show and asked: "Was that for the boys?"
Tom replied: "Yeah that was a little signal", as he mimicked her hand movement on the show.
"When she does that, that's a signal to the kids."
Tom's bandmate Doug Poynter then teased that he would get Giovanna in "trouble" with I'm A Celeb bosses for revealing her secret code.
He quipped: "Disqualified! Giovanna has been disqualified – she's out!"
Tom then joked: "I don't know what she was doing", as his bandmates and the presenters laughed.
