I’m A Celebrity 2012: Ashley Roberts bins Declan Donnelly for TOWIE’s Mark Wright!

Ashley Roberts may have admitted that she quite fancies I’m A Celebrity presenter Declan Donnelly but it seems that her tastes also run to tall, dark, reality TV stars.

The blonde beauty finished in second place on the ITV series at the weekend and insiders say that she celebrated by hitting the bar with none other than Mark Wright.

The US star was spotted drinking and partying with the former TOWIE star, who also finished as runner up on last year’s series. He was in Australia after being flown out by producers, for an appearance on sister show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! NOW!.

The hunk got more than a holiday out of the deal it seems and he may return to Britain with a stunning new girlfriend on his arm, as he and Ashley reportedly really hit it off and were spotted together at the wrap party this week.

The pair enjoyed each other’s company so much, that they slipped out of the official party after an hour, leaving their fellow celebrities behind. Instead they spent the evening knocking back shots at the bar of their Versace hotel.

Ashley admitted in the jungle that she was feeling incredibly frustrated and was desperate for a bit of “something naughty” and while poor old Dec may have been hoping he would be her partner of choice, it seems that Mark could have ended up being the lucky man.

He tweeted yesterday: “I think it’s bed time for me now!! 7:16am here #ooops.”

A show insider told The Daily Star:

“Ashley came out of the jungle and was instantly on the prowl.

“She said she fancied Dec but it was Mark that caught her eye first. They seemed really into each other.

“They were really giggly and very touchy-feely. It was cute.”

Ashley has since returned to LA but Mark will have been elated to hear that she will be back in the UK this week. She tweeted:

“Made it safely back to lala land!! 24 hours and then London here I come :). Getting all ur tweets. Luvin it. X”

Do you think Mark and Ashley would make a good couple? We thinks Dec’s a better catch ourselves! Leave your comments below…
