I’m a Celebrity fans have created a drinking game after noticing something Vernon Kay has been doing a lot.

Former Family Fortunes host Vernon has been doing a lot of name dropping during his time in the castle, speaking about his encounters with Brad Pitt, Prince William and tonight he chatted about Tom Hanks.

Vernon spoke to Giovanna and said his favourite celebrity was Tom Hanks.

Vernon said he had met the Hollywood film star when he was a fledgling presenter on T4 and Tom was promoting his film The Polar Express.

He said: “He was amazing. He was just the nicest fella. I interviewed him for The Polar Express but he was so nice and at the end I said I know this is really unprofessional, is there any chance you can sign this DVD cover of Forrest Gump for me.

“And he’s like no problem. So he signed it to Vernon, good luck with the new gig, Tom Hanks”

He said: “I’ll never forget it, I I can see it now, Tom Hanks saw me and he just turned to Ron Howard (the film’s director) and he went oh this is Vern, he’s alright he is and I’m like, he remembered my name. And he just turned around and said Vern, oh he’s a good guy.”

But viewers were quick to pick up on Vernon’s constant name dropping and suggested they make a drinking game out of it.
