Im A Celeb fans claim Mike Tindall lied to win stars in bushtucker trial

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers have claimed Mike Tindall lied in order to win stars during a bushtucker trial on Saturday night.

The latest episode of the hit ITV show saw campmates team up in twos and learn as much about one another as they could ahead of being grilled by hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly as part of a challenge.

Mike, 44, teamed up with Coronation Street star Sue Cleaver, 59, who was asked what Mike’s nickname was during his rugby days.

Admitting that she didn’t know the answer, she guessed Magic Mike, which Mike went on to reveal to be correct – therefore earning them a star.

However, I’m A Celeb fans have since taken to Twitter to question Sue’s answer, and accuse the dad-of-three of lipreading what Sue said.

“sue actually got mike's nickname wrong, he was known as the fridge #ImACeleb,” wrote one viewer, as another added: “Mike definitely lip read Sue say Magic Mike.”

“Mike Tindall told a bit lie, his nickname when playing Rugby wasn't Magic Mike, it was the FRIDGE – Someone told him what Sue said,” suggested another.

A fourth added: “I thought Mike's nickname was The Fridge not Magic Mike???? #ImACeleb.”

While it appears as if Mike may have told a white lie, the husband of Zara Phillips has largely been extremely candid during his jungle stint and even shared information about his relationship with the Royal.

Chatting with 34 year old comedian Babatunde Aleshe and Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, 23, Mike spilled all on his first meeting with Zara during the Rugby World Cup in Australia and their subsequent "boozy" first date.

"I was at the World Cup, she was out watching," the star began. "I got dropped from the semi-final.

"I was p****d off and so I went for a beer with another guy who got dropped and a guy who was over [in Sydney].

"They’d met her before and they introduced us and then got chatting.”

“So if you never got dropped you never would have met her?” Owen quizzed, as Mike joked it had been the "best decision" of player Clive Woodward's life.

The trio giggled away at Mike's memories as he went on to say he and Zara chose a "local lunch" for their first official date, which ended up being "quite a boozy one".

As Mike and Sue were teamed up together this evening, Matt Hancock and Seann Walsh decided to get to know each other a bit better.

As they prepared, Matt revealed to Seann about his failed arctic adventures, saying: “I tried to go to the North Pole… failed. I got frostbite in my finger. I’ve still got arthritis there.”

Reflecting on his other pursuits outside Parliament, he added: “I rode a winner at Newmarket. I trained to be a jockey. Frankie Dettori taught me how to ride.”

As one of their two questions, Matt was asked which Disney cartoon character Seann had a weird crush on, to which he said Bambi from the animated children’s movie about a deer.

Seann appeared shocked by Matt’s answer, who informed him it was in fact the Little Mermaid. Matt later correctly answered that Walsh’s dog was called Mildred Barrett as he quipped that not many dogs have double-barrelled names.
