I’m A Celeb’s Mike Tindall’s exes before royal romance with Zara

Mike Tindall is currently in the running for a royal title of his own as he competes for King of the Jungle in this year's I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

Outside of camp, the 44 year old former England rugby player is married to Zara Philips, daughter of Princess Anne, and granddaughter to the former Queen, Elizabeth II.

So far into his jungle journey, he’s kept pretty quiet about his royal ties – excluding when he admitted to accidentally ripping his trousers at his wife’s 30th birthday party and exposing his "nibble my nuts" boxers in front of his mother-in-law.

But apart from Zara, who he met in Sydney at the 2003 Rugby World Cup and now shares three children with, Mia, 8, Lena, 4, and Lucas, 1, who else has the I’m a Celeb star been linked to?

The last person Mike is believed to have been in a serious relationship with is Jessica Palmer, who he was reportedly dating for around one year before going separate ways. The pair met in 2001 when Mike was playing rugby for Bath, and Jessica was studying law and management at Leeds University.

Despite splitting, the former couple continued to stay friends, with Jessica even attending Mike and Zara’s pre-wedding party in 2011 on the Royal Yacht Britannia.

Now belonging to such a high-profile family, Mike, who has apparently gone on I'm a Celeb because the pandemic dried his work up, has understandably kept his previous relationships under wraps. During the show, he's only disclosed bits of information about his current wife and family here and there.

When quizzed by fellow campmate and Hollyoaks star Owen Warner about whether he knew Zara was a member of the Royal Family when he met her, he said: “I knew she was Princess Anne's daughter,” explaining that the Princess Royal is a patron of Scottish rugby.

He then continued to talk about Zara, saying: “We were friends first and then William and Harry were massive England fans at the time, so we’d met them numerous times.

"I met more of the family than you’d normally have met of the woman you start dating."
