I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! viewers were left baffled on Monday (7 November) evening, after Hollyoaks star Owen Warner asked Mike Tindall if wife Zara is Australian.
Owen, 23, was sitting in camp with Mike and Babatúndé Aléshé, who asked him how he met his wife, Zara.
Zara is a member of the royal family and the daughter of Princess Anne. But it seems Owen may not have known who the pair were discussing, after Mike explained he had met Zara in Australia almost 20 years ago.
"In Sydney, in 2003, I was in the World Cup and she was out watching," explained Mike.
"Is she Australian?" Asked Owen, before Mike replied with 'no'.
Discussing how the pair met all those years ago, Mike explained it came about after he was dropped from the semi finals.
"I got dropped from the semi final, and I was pi**ed off so I went for a beer with another guy who was dropped [...] they had met her before and they introduced us and yeah got chatting from there," Mike explained.
Speaking about their first date, he added: "We just went out for lunch, ended up being quite a boozy one, we figured out we both quite like getting smashed, it was a good start."
Zara and Mike were married in 2011 and have three children together - Mia, eight, Lena, four and Lucas, one.
And viewers watching at home were baffled, with one person writing: "Did Owen just ask if Zara Philips is Australian?? I can’t deal with this man."
While another said: "'Is she australian?' SHES APART OF THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY."
And a third added: "Did Owen just ask Mike Tindall if his wife's Australian?! Cannot cope with this lad."
"Did Owen just ask if Zara Philips were Australian??!? That’s brilliant," commented a fourth.
And a fifth added: "Don't enter any pub quizzes Owen."
It's not the first time this series that Owen has had viewers at home in stitches. In Sunday's opening episode of the series, after meeting Scarlette Douglas, Owen asked who she was, and was told by Boy George that she was ‘from A Place in the Sun’ to which he replied: “Where abouts?”
Viewers couldn't stop laughing, with one writing: “'She’s from a place in the sun'. 'Where abouts?' Did Owen think she lived ON the sun?"
