I'm A Celebrity host Ant makes brutal Solskjaer joke just seconds into new series after Man Utd manager is sacked

I'M A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! kicked off on Sunday night and hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly wasted no time making Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the butt of a brutal joke.

Dec teased the introduction of this year's celeb ex-Tottenham and Newcastle man David Ginola as "an unemployed footballer from the Nineties."


And then Ant joked: "Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?"

Geordie duo Ant and Dec are huge Newcastle fans and made the remark barely seconds after the opening titles came to a close.

Solskjaer of course was hugely successful as a player with Manchester United in the late Nineties.

But the Norwegian is now unemployed as a manager after parting ways with the club on Sunday.

The 48-year-old was axed after seven defeats in 13 games.

Ginola meanwhile enters the I'm A Celeb castle after a playing career that spanned the entirety of the Nineties.

He played in the Premier League for Newcastle, Tottenham, Aston Villa and Everton, and helped Spurs lift the League Cup in 1999.

That's the same year Solskjaer won the treble with the Red Devils, including scoring the winner in the Champions League final.

SunSport exclusively revealed that Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is the No1 choice to replace Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

The ex-Liverpool manager has already been contacted by the club with United bigwigs prepared to pay the Foxes £8million in compensation.

That's on top of a hefty £7.5million payoff for Solskjaer.

Rodgers has even started house hunting in Cheshire in preparation for taking the role.

Elsewhere Zinedine Zidane, Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag have also been linked with the hot-seat.

Ten Hag though has labelled reports linking him to Old Trafford as 'weird'.

Meanwhile Zidane could be stopped from moving to Manchester by his dancer wife Vernonique.

She is thought to want her hubby to take a longer break from the game after leaving Real Madrid in the summer.

Finally former Spurs boss Pochettino isn't thought to be impressing PSG's owners and is 'considering a return to the Premier League.'
