Watch: Mike Tindall's friend James Haskell says wife Zara will likely fly out to support him on 'I'm A Celeb'

Mike Tindall's wife Zara is likely to fly out to support him during his time on I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.

The couple's friend James Haskell said Princess Anne's daughter would probably be travelling to Australia, where the new series of the hit ITV show is being filmed.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, the ex-rugby star – who is himself married to TV star Chloe Madeley – was asked by co-host Susannah Reid whether the late Queen's granddaughter would be making the trip.

Tindall's old teammate replied: "Yeah, yeah, I think she'll be out there. Hopefully!"

Referencing his royal wife, he added: "First and foremost, I will miss my family. I will miss my bed, too, and a nice breakfast."
