People think they know why Dec keeps slagging Dennis Wise so much on I'm a Celeb

It's one of our favourite parts of this year's show...

If you're watching I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, you'll know that former footballer Dennis Wise is not getting an easy ride from the show's hosts Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

Dec in particular seems to take great delight in mocking Wise about his height... on almost every episode of the show so far, it's an ongoing joke.

And let's be clear, it doesn't get less funny every time he does it...

Every night, Wise comes under a slew of jokes from Dec about him being a "very small man." The jibes have had so much of an effect that people have been blocked from editing Dennis Wise's Wikipedia page after a whole host of references to him being a small man were added to the former Chelsea star's page.

Even Richard Osman from Pointless weighed in to give him approval of the gags...

Just look at Wise's Wiki page...

No explanation has been given for the constant stream of jokes about his height, so people have been left to speculate why exactly Dec has been laying into Wise so much.

But some are saying it's due to Wise's connection with Newcastle United as Executive Director of Football in 2008, under the ownership of Mike Ashley. Many Geordie's were unhappy with the way the club was run during this period, as well as the ejection of Kevin Keegan from the club.

With Ant and Dec being lifelong Newcastle fans, some people think that Dec is using this as an opportunity to give Wise some stick over it. We think that might be a bit of a stretch though, what do you think?

The irony of the situation is that Dec is actually smaller than Dennis Wise, so maybe he's just using this as an opportunity to jibe someone else over their height for a change.
