It’s time for reality show viewers to enjoy everything that makes their stomachs churn and wince as I’m A Celebrity season all over again. More romantically inclined viewers will undoubtedly be watching to see if any of the new campmates start a romance, despite the grim challenges.
Love has repeatedly blossomed in the I’m A Celebrity camp, despite not being a dating show, leading to numerous raunchy antics and even alleged jungle sex. We look back at some of the lustiest encounters below as the 2023 season begins, as well as where rumored hidden cave frisky campmates would retreat for some private time.
Peter Andre and Katie Price
The chemistry between Mysterious Girl singer Peter Andre and Katie Price, who was then better known to fans as Jordan, was evident from the very beginning of the camp. During the 2004 television series, the flirtatious couple fell in love and spent a lot of time getting to know one another through massaging, kissing, and hammock canoodling.
Peter, who had fallen in love, was once seen in the middle of the night walking over to Katie’s camp bed, causing rumors of a private moment. Peter responded, “I couldn’t help myself,” when Katie said the following day by the creek that they “could always say we were whispering.”
Former Page Three girl Katie, who later married Peter and had two children with him before their eventual divorce in 2009, insisted that nothing physical had happened between them during her exit interview with hosts Ant and Dec. When shown the seductive night vision footage, Katie could be seen covering her eyes.
Of course, a hidden sex cave constructed right next to the well-known jungle shower may have given the couple more privacy if they had joined the show starting in 2016. The Mirror was previously informed by a source that “the next door will be secret and hidden behind locked doors.” It will be applied to our celebrities several times throughout the series. We will use it for a variety of events over the course of the series, even though it is nothing more than an ordinary cave with benches inside. Although the floors are a little hard, romance can still be enjoyed there.
Marc Bannerman and Cerys Matthews
During the 2007 season of the show, singer Cerys Matthews and former EastEnders star Marc Bannerman fell in love, but there was some controversy surrounding their burgeoning romance. Marc was still with his then-girlfriend Sarah Matravers when he first entered the jungle, and she was horrified to see how their televised flirtations played out. Heartbroken Sarah raged in an agonizing interview with Closer magazine at the time, calling the man she had only known for a week and who she knew was dating someone else. Either it’s incredibly cold-hearted or extremely screwed up. I hope they perish in hell because they deserve one another.
Even later, it was claimed that there was video of Marc and Cerys getting steamy together, but the producers chose not to broadcast it, making the situation even more painful. John Burton-Race, a Celeb evictee at the time, said, “There were times when the pair disappeared off together,” in an interview with the Mail Online. That is what I must say. I am aware of my knowledge. The rest is obvious. We are all mature adults who are familiar with the game. There are things in there that viewers wouldn’t have heard or seen, he continued. Relationships develop. Just three months after leaving the jungle, Marc and Cerys’ love story ended, despite the fact that they had become very close in the camp.
Emily Scott and Mark Wright
During the 2011 season, The Only Way Is Essex’s Mark Wright and Australian model Emily Scott engaged in a lot of flirtations, massages, and even an undressed dip in the pool, which was obvious signs of sexual tension. Even as a teenager, Mark acknowledged that he had been attracted to Emily, and their attraction quickly became one of the hotly debated issues of that particular year.
However, after they parted ways, Mark told The Sun that he didn’t think their relationship would have a romantic future and that while Emily was lovely and very attractive, I had no interest in dating her. There is only a small friendly flirtation when you are in the jungle. I want to live alone because I’m single. She is a good catch, I won’t argue, but that’s not how I feel about her.
However, Mark was able to move past his on-off relationship with fellow TOWIE star Lauren Goodger thanks to his time on the show, and it didn’t take him long to meet Michelle Keegan, his future wife.
Amy Willerton and Joey Essex
The 2013 season saw a resurgence of tension as the newest camp lovers—TV personality Joey Essex and model Amy Willerton. Amy complimented Joey’s deft massage techniques as the two quickly grew close, and it was obvious to everyone else in the camp how they felt.
Olympic swimming champion Rebecca Adlington said, “I can’t take the sexual tension anymore,” after a particularly romantic-dovey exchange. Steve Davis, a snooker player, was sitting here watching you two when she continued, “It’s so awkward for me and Steve.” My parents and I seem to be watching porn together.
However, things weren’t as they seemed, and Amy acknowledged Joey had asked her for a “fake relationship” after leaving the show. Amy admitted, “To be honest, that was a horrible experience,” in an open interview with the Now magazine from 2015. If someone tells you, “Hey, let’s pretend to be in a relationship!” You seem to be saying, “No, that’s not what I want!” I had no idea that sort of activity occurred.
Amy continued, recalling her response to his hurtful suggestion: “I said, “No, you can take me out on a date.” Up until that point, we had been friends, but all of a sudden, he wanted more. When I said, “No, I want to do my own thing,” he abruptly stopped talking to me after people said we could be managed as a couple.
