The 2023 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! has officially come to an end.
Following three weeks of heated rows, tear-jerking admissions, bombshell revelations, gruelling bushtucker trials and, well, a naked Nigel Farage, viewers crowned their winner on Sunday evening.
The controversial politician landed himself in third place, before professional boxer Tony Bellew became this year’s runner-up.
Since becoming the sixth contestant to be eliminated from the Australian camp, EastEnders actor Danielle Harold has spent the last week relaxing at the uber-luxurious Marriott Gold Coast hotel with her fellow evicted ITV stars.
Whilst there, she has also struck up a friendship with several of the stars’ friends and families, all of whom have flown out to support their loved ones.
Amongst the hoard of pals that Danielle has seemingly made is The Only Way Is Essex heartthrob Pete Wicks, who had flown Down Under to support his posh boy bff Sam.
In fact, Danielle and Pete became so close whilst the series was drawing to a close, that they were actually papped locking lips at the I’m A Celeb wrap party that followed Sam’s win.
The pair were joined by Danielle’s former castmates – including the three finalists, as well as This Morning’s Josie Gibson, First Dates star Fred Sirieix, jockey Frankie Dettori, YouTuber Nella Rose and Hollyoaks actor Nick Pickard – at the Gold Coast beach club Surfers Paradise on Sunday night.
According to press, soap star Danielle, 31, and TOWIE ‘bad-boy’ Pete gravitated to each other all night and were photographed with their arms wrapped around one another, appearing to exchange a kiss, with Pete's long hair obscuring her face.
In another snap from the star-studded party, saw Pete carrying a beaming Danielle on his back whilst she enjoyed a piggy-back ride as he puffed on a cigarette.
Celebrity body language expert Judi James has since analysed some of duo’s body language, which she says hints at a very special bond, indeed.
“Wishful thinking can lead to a bias, but in these photos, it does look as though their body language might be endorsing the story”.
Judi went on: “Walking together they look engaged in a positive convo and despite the fact she has her drink held up in a partial barrier, Danielle’s smile is sending approval vibes.
“The shot of them standing together looks a lot more convincing in terms of possible mutual attraction though.”
Speaking again of Danielle – who earlier this year was linked to her EastEnders co-star Jamie Borthwick – Judi went on to say: “Their proximity looks telling and their heads look close enough for a kiss.”
Adding of Pete, 34 – whose exes include the likes of Essex co-stars Megan McKenna, Chloe Sims and Jess Wright – she told press: “Pete has his fag arm around Danielle’s back which is always a sign of interest and attention in TOWIE.”
