Cringeworthy moment Mike Tindall jokes he’s going to ‘get the Budgy Smugglers out’ during interview

He has launched his own range of Budgy Smugglers after wearing the revealing swimwear on the UK version of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

And Mike Tindall, 44, couldn’t help but plug the swimming trunks during an awkward interview with his wife Zara on Friday’s Sunrise.  

The former former rugby union star said he was going to slip into the revealing briefs during his current trip to South Australia, where the couple are attending the Adelaide 500 motor racing event.

When asked by Sunrise’s Mark Beretta what the couple are going to get up to during their stay, Zara said they were hoping to enjoy some wine tasting, before Mike chirped in and said ‘we’re gonna get the Budgy Smugglers out today’ which lead to laughs from the whole trio. 

Mike launched his own line of the tight swimming trunks after his appearance on I’m A Celebrity UK.

During his stint in the jungle, he was accused of wearing his wife’s bikini bottoms while taking a dip at the creek.

His new range comes with cheeky slogans including ‘nibble my nuts’ and ‘Vanilla Mike’ with all proceeds donated to charity.

Mike shared a snap of the limited edition range on his Twitter page on Tuesday after he revealed his team had been working on them while he was in camp.

The couple have often spoken about their fondness for Australia as the country is dear to their heart. 

They met at Sydney bar in 2003 while Mike was ‘drowning his sorrows’ after being cut from the England World Cup squad and Zara was on a gap year. 

Speaking Friday about their plans for this trip, the couple revealed they were excited to see Adelaide for the first time.

‘We only got in yesterday, so not explored yet’ Mike said.

‘Rugby tours didn’t come down here before. They got the Wallabies here last year.

‘It’s a great wine region, so I’m sure we’ll be sampling lots.’

The couple often travel to Australia, most recently bringing in the 2020 New Year in Sydney with an A-list crowd including Rebel Wilson

‘Early January is bleak over here [in their home of Gloucestershire in England] so it’s nice to be able to go and have a bit of sun,’ she said.

‘I love the lifestyle of Australia and the ability to get up early, go on the beach – especially for the kids,’ Mike told the magazine.
