Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have transformed into knights for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’s latest tease.
However it seemed seemed Ant, 46, had pulled the short straw as, while his best pal Dec, 45, rode an imposing white horse, he trotted around on the back of a considerably shorter pony.
Donning shiny silver helmets and coordinating gloves, the presenters have certainly swapped Australia’s New South Wales for Britain’s North Wales as they ventured on a quest to Gwrych Castle.
Not so tall order: Ant and Dec dressed as knights to gee up one another in new promo shots ahead of the new series of I’m A Celebrity which begins next month – with Ant’s pony coming up a little short
Promo: Ant and Dec transformed into knights as the presenting duo teased the return of I’m A Celebrity while dressed-head-toe in armour
With unmissable red capes in-tow, the presenters looked ever inch the part in the medieval-inspired photos.
It comes after a promotional image for the ITV show saw the acclaimed duo transform into knights, dressed head-to-toe in armour.
The image showed the pair standing in front a map of their battlefield, with Ant cutting an imposing figure in his armour, while Dec mustered his efforts to remain as serious as possible.

Setting: This year’s show has once again relocated from sunny Australia to Wales amid Covid restrictions, with the famous faces once again heading to Conwy County
A little glimpse was given into the idyllic Welsh scenery as two ponies grazed in their background.
These were the same ponies which, last month, the best pals were seen riding for a trailer ahead of the new series.
The teaser snap comes after the 20-time NTA award winners couldn’t contain their excitement as they were given a sneak peek of I’m A Celebrity campmates for this year’s series last week.

The double-act beamed from ear-to-ear and clenched their fists with joy as producers presented them with this year’s line-up in an Instagram video.
Unfortunately for avid fans of the long-running show, the images had been blurred out in a bid to maintain their secrecy.
‘Here we go, number one,’ announced a member of the crew before the pair began clapping with Ant shouting, ‘Yes!’
‘Very, very good,’ Dec commented of another contestant before the pair raised their eyebrows and said, ‘Ooh.’
Wow! Dec shot a surprised look at producers after one sensational reveal
Dec’s face was certainly a picture towards the end of the clip as he opened his mouth up wide and bulged his eyes in shock at one of the new cast members.
‘That’s amazing. We’re happy,’ they concluded – leaving fans beside themselves with anticipation in time for the reality show’s November return.
Preparations for the upcoming series are underway at the camp in Gwrych Castle, North Wales, which will play host for the second consecutive year due to travel restrictions surrounding its usual home on Australia’s east coast.

ITV bosses are facing a scramble against time to renovate the dilapidated building – which is now closed to the public – and its surrounding areas ahead of the new series expected to begin in November.
The reality show, which usually films in the Australian wilderness, was forced to relocate to the dilapidated castle following fears Australia could shut its borders because of the ongoing pandemic.
Producers have since filed an extensive planning application to the authorities in order to make the country house inhabitable in time for the new series.
