The potential romantic relationship between Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby and Married at First Sight’s Ryan Gallagher has been the will-they-won’t-they “romance” of this season’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.
But on Sunday night, they finally shared their first passionate kiss in the South African jungle, after the UK television personality told Ryan, “I’m sat in this position for a reason”.
Charlotte told Ryan she was “scared to kiss with tongues”, but she did manage to curb her nerves and lock lips with the former Married At First Sight contestant.
Then she ran away, as she shouted “I’m shy!”
Ryan and Charlotte talk about the future of their relationship on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here. Post continues below.
Their possible romance is likely to keep viewers entertained this season, but there are some fans questioning the legitimacy of their flirtations.
Call us cynics, but we can’t help wondering if they might be right.
Don’t just take our word for it, though. Here, we’ve rounded up the evidence from both camps (pardon the pun) so you can decide for yourself.
Evidence that suggests it’s fake.
Their social media trail started way ahead of the show.
Consider this: prior to the show airing, the contestants on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here are kept strictly confidential from both the public and their fellow campers. And yet, Charlotte and Ryan seemed to already be familiar with each other.
Charlotte confirmed this when they both arrived in the jungle. During the first week she gushed to the camera: “So, the thing about me and Ryan is, we had never met but we have spoken on social media. I feel like we’ve had a little bit of a flirt as so it’s a little bit awkward.”
Ryan was equally as excited, saying: “She seems like she’s a lot of fun. She’s mad but I am also mad”.
“I’m happy to meet Charlotte,” he said.
