Ant and Dec got starstruck by Kieron Dyer.
The 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' hosts usually try to retain some distance between themselves and the show's contestants, but couldn't help but get excited by the addition of the sportsman, who used to play for their favourite football team, Newcastle United.
Dec said: "We were really excited when Kieron signed up because we're obviously Newcastle United fans and he was a great player at Newcastle."
Ant added: "We never talk to the celebrities when there's downtime and we're with them - we try to retain some distance - but I was with Kieron when we met them from the helicopter and I had a bit of a fan boy moment and asked him about playing for Newcastle.
"I've never done anything like that in 15 years! It was good."
The presenting pair are delighted with this year's line-up and think it's the best the show has seen in years.
Ant told OK! magazine: "This is definitely the best line-up for a few years.
"Lady C [Lady Colin Campbell] is a gift to the show. She's a game old bird. The way she deals with things is very old school. You get the feeling she hasn't seen a lot of reality shows. She's not doing it for the cameras, she's doing it for herself."
