I’m A Celebrity 2012: Charlie Brooks’ friends say she’s “ready to marry” boyfriend Ben Hollington!
When the rest of the I’m A Celebrity contestants flew back to their various homes last week – having completed their stint in the jungle – winner Charlie Brooks decided that she’d stay in Australia for a Down Under Christmas…
And according to the Daily Mirror today, Charlie has asked her boyfriend Ben Hollington – who she referred to as “my boy” while she was in camp – to join her and daughter Kiki for the festivities.
Charlie’s mum Roe is also apparently staying in Australia to celebrate the holidays, and a source close to Charlie told the paper that the family may have something else to celebrate; a wedding!

“Everyone expects him to pop the question sooner rather than later and they’re convinced Charlie will say yes.
“It’s a big step in their relationship to spend Christmas together.
“Charlie’s friends are convinced her and him are in it for the long haul.”
Soon after Charlie won this year’s series, it was revealed that she and Ben had a secret code, and that whenever she made mention of fajitas, she was in fact letting him know that she was missing him.
And of course, in one of Charlie’s visits to the show’s Bush Telegraph, we saw Charlie weeping as she said “I miss fajitas!”
Ben was there to greet Charlie when she left the jungle, and of her, he said, “I can’t believe I’m dating the jungle queen. I’m so proud of her.”
Awww! Here’s a reminder of the moment Charlie learned she’d won…
