On Sunday night’s episode of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Australia, Grant Denyer revealed that he fell in love with now-wife Chezzi when she was still married to someone else. 

While the TV host has disclosed the story in the past, many unknowing fans at home were shocked by revelation.

‘She was really pushy.  And I was pretty arrogant, so we didn’t like one another at all’ he added. 

Grant said that despite the acrimony, the pair then shared a magic moment which ignited their explosive chemistry.   

‘And then one day… It was so weird. One day we just brushed hands. And I just felt a tingle from my head to my toe. Just this massive feeling.

One person Tweeted: ‘Interesting that it was the woman who lost her job in that situation… just… saying.’

Another wrote: ‘So she gets fired and grant’s job is perfectly safe???’ while someone else added: ‘I would not give up my career for a man. Sorry not sorry.’

A viewer Tweeted: ‘Grant and Chezzi’s love story deserves it’s own show or something. I wasn’t expecting that! 

‘It’s also nice to hear a guy talk about his experiences falling in love, even though the circumstances weren’t favourable and Chezzi got the boot.’
