Viewers were left confused last night when the sound cut out and all they could hear was heavy breathing over the top of Holly and Dec's presenting.

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here viewers were left confused last night when the sound cut out while presenters Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly were talking and instead only heavy breathing could be heard.

The audio mishap happened during a link towards the end of the show before the presenters revealed to camp who would be leaving the jungle that day.

Viewers could still see Dec and Holly talking to the camera but the sound that played with it was a mixture of background noise - and creepily - heavy breathing.

Fans of the show took to Twitter to voice their confusion...and concerns!

It's safe to say the audience at home were pretty weirded out by the technical glitch but it only lasted less than a minute before things returned to normal and Holly and Dec headed to camp.

Last night it was the turn of The Chase quizzer Anne Hegerty to leave the jungle. She was the fifth celeb to be evicted from camp and leaves six celebrities behind in the jungle.

During her time on the show she has been praised by many for being transparent and open about the fact she is autistic and her fellow celebs have rallied around her as she struggled through various trials.

In her exit interview with Holly and Dec she revealed that she wanted to quit after the first day in the jungle.

She said after arriving: "I went into the BT (Bush Telegraph) the next morning and said 'I quit'."

The 60-year-old TV star, known by Chase fans as The Governess, lasted a whopping 18 days in camp despite her struggles at the start.
