While this year’s I’m A Celeb has had some memorable moments, it hasn’t produced any of the grand love affairs that we’ve enjoyed watching in the past – like the one between Catatonia singer Cerys Matthews and EastEnders actor Marc Bannerman, or, erm, Katie Price and Peter Andre.
But wait! Even though the show’s already over, we might be in luck yet.
It seems there could be some love blossoming between Jamie Redknapp and his dad’s fellow campmate, Emily Atack – as the two have been flirting with each other, both directly and via interviews.
In Harry’s post-win interview on Extra Camp, son Jamie called in to congratulate him on being crowned King of the Jungle.
As the Redknapps chatted away, Emily and John Barrowman shouted ‘Hi Jamie!’ down the line, prompting Harry to tell Jamie: “Keep away from Emily, Jamie. She’d be too much for you.”
Jamie then replied: “I know, I reckon she is.”

As Emily and John giggled, Jamie added: “Do you know what Tinder is, Dad? Emily, you need to tell him what Tinder is.”
Harry joked back: “That’s what we started the fire with!”
On Tuesday Emily had also told Harry she felt she’d be a ‘really good daughter-in-law’, to which Harry responded: “You would be fantastic. There is no doubt about that, Emily!”
Rita Simons cut in, saying: “I think you’ve got another daughter-in-law there. Can I be there at the wedding?”
Emily later told viewers she was only ‘messing around’, but joked for Jamie to call her, miming a phone with her hands – a gag that she also repeated in a post-jungle interview with Lorraine Kelly.
Emily told Lorraine she felt it was her ‘wedding day’ because everyone kept congratulating her on being named runner-up, before adding: “But just without a husband.”
Playing cupid, Lorraine said: “Well, we need to sort that out. What about Jamie Redknapp?”
Emily replied coyly: “I’ve got my makeup on now, so he might be [interested]!”
What’s more, Jamie has also told the Sun he thinks Emily is ‘sweet’ – and said that she’d been making him laugh with her appearance on the show.
“She’s so sweet in the programme,” he said.
“It was such a nice conversation and I thought, ‘Alright, Dad, where are you going with this one?’
“It was funny the way she handled it afterwards, it did make me laugh. He’s like Tinder in there, Dad, isn’t he?”
