Mike Tindall lifted the lid on whether Prince William approved of his stint on this year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! As a non-working royal he did not need to seek official permission from The Firm to appear on the show, but some fans were curious to know how the royal family reacted to the Prince of Wales’ cousin’s husband’s decision.

Mike and Prince William have had a close relationship for some time, with the pair appearing animated together in photos from various royal events.

The former rugby player revealed he had not asked for permission from The Firm to appear on the programme.

But he admitted: “You don’t want to upset anyone.

“I spoke to the Prince of Wales about it and he said ‘Great, go have fun!’” Mike added on his podcast, The Good, the Bad and the Rugby.

Mike became the eighth contestant to be eliminated from the ITV series and reunited with his wife Zara after his exit.

As he arrived at the lavish JW Marriott hotel with his wife Zara, Mike threw his arms up in the air in celebration of arriving back into civilisation.

He was given a warm welcome by his former campmates and received a huge hug from Seann Walsh and Sue Cleaver.

After a small catch-up in the hotel lobby with his friends, Mike and Zara headed to their room for a shower and food.

The former rugby player admitted at the time that his stint in the jungle helped him overcome challenges and continue to have a positive attitude.

Speaking to presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly during his eviction interview, he told them: “I am good, I am good.

“I think it has been a long time so you are getting ready, I could feel my body getting ready, you know when the final day could be and I always said going into the final week I am happy to go.

“But then you get to a tipping point where you go, well actually at this point you want to stay and then Cyclone yesterday was a lot of fun.

“So yeah I am pretty comfortable with it. It has been an amazing journey and I have been very lucky with everyone that has been in there.

“The camp has worked together and that’s being a team for a long period of my life, teams, and I didn’t expect it to work as well as it did. It has been a lot of laughs, everyone has their distinct humour.

“The only time that I really almost had a little wobble was when we did the nighttime challenge but then Seann had a wobble and it got me back to focus on Seann and I just go, right we have to get this, take your time.”

More recently, Mike appeared in high spirits as he joined his wife Zara for his first appearance with the royal family since his I’m A Celebrity stint.

He was all smiles as he headed into Westminster Abbey to support Kate Middleton’s carol concert last week.

The ITV star ditched his jungle attire for a chic navy blue suit with a red tie, while his wife donned a maroon coat for the occasion.

Senior members of the royal family headed to the central London church to support Kate’s Together at Christmas concert.

Kate and William arrived with their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte who looked adorable matching her mother.
