Mike Tindall was revealed as part of this year’s line up of ITV’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and he’s been getting stuck into jungle life.

The new series of the popular show aired on Sunday, November 6 and viewers have already begun getting to know Tindall.

So far this series, we've seen Tindall rap to some well-known 90s tunes, explain how he met his wife and he took on his first challenge as he was joined by Sue Cleaver and Owen Warner before entering the camp.

Who is Mike Tindall?

Mike Tindall is a former England rugby player who lives at Gatcombe Park near Stroud.

The 44-year-old has been married to the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall since 2011 and they have three children together: Mia, Lena and Lucas Tindall.

Mike Tindall is the first member of the extended royal family to join the ITV show hosted by Ant and Dec.

Before entering the jungle, Mike explained that he’d miss his family and home comforts while in Australia.

He said: “First and foremost, I will miss my family. I will miss my bed too and a nice breakfast.”

The sportsman said he was inspired to join the show by his friend and former I’m A Celeb contestant, James Haskell.

He said: “It is sinking in now that I am taking part.

“I am ready to rumble! I have been asked on numerous occasions to take part.

“The timing was right this year and Hask (James) did the show and he had been talking about it.”

The eating trials hadn’t put Tindall off as he said: “I am eight years out of the game now so I am a bit more realistic about food, but I know James said the lack of food can sometimes be hard.

“But at least with the eating trials, you get food in you!

“It might not taste very nice but at least it is serving a purpose and giving you a protein intake. Bring on those challenges.”

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here continues on ITV at 9.15pm on Tuesday, November 8.
