Ash Pollard made no secret of the fact that she was keen to find love in the jungle. When Kris Smith walked in a few days later as an intruder on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Ash was very vocal about her attraction to the male model.
Now, after a week in the jungle the tension between Ash, 31 and Kris, 38 is becoming hard to ignore.
On Sunday night’s episode, the pair were the talk of the camp after Ash admitted she wanted to make a move on the hunky model.
Lisa Curry, clearly interested in the topic, encouraged the conversation further.
‘So Ash, how is the romance going, the jungle romance?’ the former Olympic swimmer questioned Ash.
‘Oh my god, we are not even playing this card,’ Ash responded, clearly embarrassed.
Not seeing the problem, Nat Bassingthwaighte continued the conversation on.
‘What? That’s boring. Two singles, you should just do it!’ the former Neighbours actress chimed in.
‘Everybody’s just looking for something to entertain them and that apparently is the jungle romance between Kris and I,’ Ash joked. ‘Yeah, I’ll make a move. When he and I are the last people in camp and you’ve all been voted off, then I’ll make my moves.’
Tegan Martin threw her two cents into the mix saying, ‘What happens in the jungle, stays in the jungle.’
Fed up with the chat of romance, Steve Price questioned if there was ‘anything worse than standing around listening to sheilas crap on about who they’d like to have sex with?’
Meanwhile, Kris, who previously dated and had a child with Dannii Minogue, opened up about his relationship struggles, revealing he’s to blame for their failures.
‘I think I’ve ruined a lot of them. Just insecure and jealous,’ Kris explained. ‘I never believed I was good enough. I would never let people get too close.’
