ITV I'm A Celebrity fans respond as they notice stars missing from brilliant photo inside farewell dinner

Loose Women anchor Charlene White has delighted fans missing their fix of I'm A Celebrity ...Get Me Out Of Here! with a brilliant photo taken inside their final dinner together. The newsreader shared a group photo of herself, her campmates and their families after they enjoyed a catch-up after their three week adventure in the Australian jungle.

Charlene, 42, looked happy as she posed in a green dress next to Zara Tindall, the wife of former England rugby player Mike Tindall who came in fourth place on the ITV reality show. Also in the picture was Hollyoaks star Owen Warner, who came in second place, comedian Babatúndé Aléshé, radio DJ Chris Moyles and A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas.

Charlene, who was the first to be voted out of the jungle, explained that they were the 'last ones standing' after a farewell meal with all the campmates."Last one’s standing after a food and wine filled night with all the camp mates, family & friends. Brilliant final meal to officially mark the end of our crazy @imacelebrity experience," she wrote next to the picture. And she added: "It was a blast."


Fans clocked that not everyone was in the souvenir picture. Vixmagoo exclaimed: "Some of the celebs missing!" And sarahchapman713 said: "Not 'all' the camp mates are there!"

Charlene's Instagram followers noted that former health secretary Matt Hancock wasn't there, or Queen of the Jungle Jill Scott. wendy_mccomb remarked about the Lioness: "Jill isn't there either." Also missing from the group was singer Boy George, Coronation Street star Sue Cleaver and comedian Seann Walsh.

Other fans picked up that royal Zara, King Charles' niece who is 20th in line to the throne, looked at ease leaning on Charlene's shoulder. janettehair said: "Fabulous photo Charlene. I love how comfortable Zara is leaning on your shoulder." fogartyd871 asked: "Is that Zara Tindall lying on your shoulder?"

ladysalsa said: "I love this picture Charlene. Such a nice one of you and Zara. She strikes me as a down to earth kinda gal." And queeniedee2 said: "Check you with a royal on your shoulder though gurl."

emmalumley_durham said about the picture: "Love this!" ms_stush63 said: "You all look like you had a wonderful time inside & outside the jungle." shivula wrote: "What a fabulous bunch of people, memories that will last a lifetime." And oakley875 said: "The best group ever class of 2022."

After Sunday night's final Charlene shared a photo of herself with West Suffolk MP Matt, saying: "Out no.3!!" During her time in the jungle Charlene finally explained why she had refused to sleep in the camp's RV which had been causing frustration for viewers of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.

The ITV News broadcaster was granted the slice of jungle luxury when Matt was made camp leader and chose her as his deputy. As the days passed Charlene was still refusing to sleep in the RV alongside Matt - in separate beds - and it led to viewers branding her 'selfish' and demanding action be taken.

Hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly confirmed that Charlene wan't breaking the rules but Charlene later said: “I’m an impartial journalist, I can’t be sharing a room with a sitting MP because that just doesn’t sit well with me impartiality wise."

She added: "And I just think, if he were ever to become minister again how can I sit and question him about anything when I’ve shared a room with him?"
