I’m A Celebrity 2012: Is Ashley Roberts with TOWIE’s Mark Wright?

It would seem that I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here host, Declan Donnelly, has a love rival for this year’s runner-up Ashley Roberts, former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright!

Dec made no secret of his crush on Pussy Cat Doll Ashley during her three weeks in the jungle, to the point when Ashley even implied she might take him up on his offer of a date, but his efforts to woo her were wasted as the blonde bombshell only had eyes for Wright at the wrap party, so the Mirror newspaper reports.


According to the publication, during the party, held near Brisbane, Ashley and Mark spent hours drinking and flirting together before disappearing in a lift! They later returned to the Palazzo Versace hotel after the wrap party at around 10pm where they met up at the bar, and were joined by other I’m A Celeb stars, including boxer David Haye and ex-Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan, who joined the pair in a taxi to continue partying at a nearby club till the early hours.

The next morning Wright took to social networking site, Twitter, to tell his fans: “I think it’s bedtime for me now! 7:16am.”

Wright, who was appearing on the ITV2 spin-off show, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now, after coming second in last year’s series, admitted to fancying the American singer earlier in the series, saying live on TV: “She’s hot!”

Meanwhile Ashley recently admitted that she wanted to find a British fella, saying: “I like good-looking, confident guys with a good sense of humour. And British accents are great.”

Elsewhere, new Queen of the Jungle, EastEnders star Charlie Brooks, had a slightly less successful evening after failing to persuade hotel staff to re-open the bar when she and her guests returned from the party.
