This weekend ITV’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here reality show saw a bloke from a band I don’t like crowned ‘King of the Jungle’ by TV two hosts I’m not especially fond of. But what do I know? Dougie Poynter’s McFly have sold well over one million records and I’m A Celebrity… hosted by Ant and Dec regularly drew in more than 11-million viewers. They’re popular.
