I'm a Celeb's Owen Warner asks Mike Tindall when he first realised Zara was a royal

Watch: Owen Warner grills Mike Tindall about royal life

It's been three weeks since Owen Warner entered the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! camp with Mike Tindall, but the Hollyoaks star is still trying to pin down his campmate's relationship with Zara Phillips.

Early in the ITV series, Warner, 23, had viewers in stitches as he managed to reveal that he had no idea who most of his campmates were, including asking Tindall whether his royal wife Phillips was Australian.

His other clangers included asking Boy George what his name was, and after being told Scarlette Douglas was from A Place In The Sun, asking "whereabouts?".

But three weeks of sharing camp with Tindall, the actor quizzed the former rugby player about what it was like to start dating a royal.

After respectfully checking that Tindall didn't mind talking about his family, Warner asked when he had realised that Phillips — an Olympic equestrian and 20th in line to the throne — was royalty.

Warner asked: "When you first started chatting to Zara, how late in did you know she was royalty, straight away?"

Tindall looked surprised as he said: "Yeah. Because I know she's Princess Anne's daughter.

"Princess Anne is patron of Scottish rugby."

Warner continued: "Did you feel like a bit of pressure?" as Tindall asked: "What, how do you mean?"

The actor said: "Well, if I was chatting to a girl and then I found out she was royalty, I'd get like more nervous."

Ex-rubgy player Tindall said: "No, because we were friends first and then William and Harry were massive England fans at the time, so we'd met them numerous times. So as things go, I'd met more of the family than you would normally have met of the family of the woman you start dating."

One viewer tweeted: "Owen clearly thinks Zara was acting like Jasmine when Aladdin first met her."

Someone else added: "Owen asking Mike about Zara and her family is hilarious!!! It's so sweet and yet so ridiculous!!"

Warner had also grilled Tindall about how often he had been to Buckingham Palace, and whether he had ever stayed overnight there.

Tindall confirmed he had slept there, and Warner said: "Mad. In the morning, could you go downstairs in like your joggers and your t-shirt or did you have to get dressed up again?"

Tindall answered: "No, you get like jeans and tee."

A surprised Warner said: "I would have thought you have to be like suited and booted," as Chris Moyles, listening to the chat, laughed and said: "I'm loving this!"

I'm A Celebrity continues tonight at 9.15pm on ITV.
