I'm a Celebrity's Charlene White responds as fans spot missing stars at goodbye meal

This year's I'm A Celebrity stars met for the final time in Australia before heading home to celebrate their time in camp together.

Loose Women 's Charlene White shared a glimpse of the celebration on her Instagram page, posting a photo of her with fellow jungle stars Mike Tindall, Chris Moyles, Scarlette Douglas, Owen Warner and Babatúndé Aléshé at the dinner table. The snap sparked a reaction from I'm A Celeb fans as the presenter was full of praise for her co-stars.

Charlene wrote in her caption: "Last ones standing after a food and wine-filled night with all the campmates, family and friends. Brilliant final meal to officially mark the end of our crazy I'm A Celebrity experience."

But eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot that some stars were missing from the photo. "Not 'all' the campmates are there!" one person pointed out, which was echoed by several others in the comments section.

Queen of the Jungle Jill Scott was missing from the photo, as was finalist and former Health Secretary Matt Hancock, comedian Seann Walsh, Coronation Street star Sue Cleaver, and singer Boy George, sparking rumours of a feud. But after questions were raised by fans, Charlene edited her caption the next day to clarify that some of the stars had already retired to bed by the time the snap was taken.

"We're not all pictured here as a few tapped out early... but we kept going till the restaurant chucked us out," she wrote, alongside a laughing emoji. "It was a blast."

Mike Tindall also made a heartfelt speech to his co-stars at the dinner, calling this year's series of I'm A Celeb "the best in 22 years". He told his former campmates: "I would like to say it's been an absolute privilege and honour to meet you all, to be together, to spend that valuable time together. [...] To get on for the amount of time we've got on is very, very rare and very, very special and we should all appreciate that."

Many fans pointed out that Mike's wife Zara Tindall seemed to have already made firm friends with her husband's campmates, with Princess Anne's daughter pictured resting her head on Charlene's shoulder in the group photo. "I love how comfortable Zara is leaning on your shoulder," one person commented on the picture.

Charlene also posted a separate picture with Lioness Jill on her Instagram page the next morning, writing in a sweet tribute to the Sunderland star: "My heart is full of so much pride and love for this woman. She’s got the kindest and biggest heart, is ridiculously funny, came up with the best games to play in camp, has the best one-liners, is superbly talented, and was quite simply a joy to be around."
