Im A Celebs Ant makes brutal Ole Gunnar Solskjaer joke after Man Utd sack

I'm A Celeb hosts Ant and Dec are huge football fans and it didn't take long for the former to take a dig at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the new series aired.

This year's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! started on Sunday night, again being held in a Welsh castle.

David Ginola is one of this year's campmates with the former Tottenham star joining the likes of Arlene Phillips and Frankie Bridge in the castle.

And as the hosts introduced those who will have to endure the bushtucker trials, Ant McPartlin took his chance to make a joke at Solskjaer's expense.

The Norwegian was sacked by Manchester United on Sunday following a run of poor results with a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Watford proving to be the final straw.

As Dec introduced Ginola, by calling the Frenchman an unemployed footballer from the Nineties, Ant replied: "Ole Gunnar Solskjaer? That's football."

United are now expected to name an interim manager until the end of the season with Michael Carrick initially taking the temporary reins.

Though Solskjaer is proud of the job he did at Old Trafford having replaced Jose Mourinho almost three years ago.

The Norwegian told MUTV: “Very, very proud. Of course, it’s one of those things you dream of in your life.

"When you’ve been a player, when you’ve been a reserve team coach, the next job then, the only dream and the only thing you haven’t done is to manage the club, and I have now.

"It’s been a ball, it’s been absolutely enjoyable from the first to the last minute, so I have to thank all the players because since I came in, they’re top lads, top people.

"Some have come, some have gone, but all of them, they’ve been such an enjoyable bunch to work with.

"First of all, I want to thank the board and the owners for giving me the opportunity because it’s not for everyone and I’ve had the opportunity.

"I’m so honoured and privileged to have been trusted to take the club forward, and I really hope that I leave it in a better state than when I came."
