Mike Tindall has shared a love-up selfie with his royal wife Zara after he became the eighth star eliminated from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on Saturday.

The former rugby union player, 44, took to Instagram on Sunday to share the cute shot which saw him gaze into the 41-year-old’s eyes over a cup of coffee.

In his caption, he wrote: ‘Reunited!!! ❤️ Back to normality and time to eat!!! Thanks for all the kind messages! It was a blast! #imaceleb #familytime.’

Tagging his location as Bumbles Cafe, it comes after Mike and Zara received a warm welcome as they arrived back at their hotel after he was voted off the show.

They appeared in great spirits as they jumped out of a car and reunited with Mike’s former campmates and their partners, who were stood waiting outside the hotel.

The couple stood together with their arms wrapped around each other as they posed for pictures following Mike’s eviction, which left Matt Hancock, Jill Scott and Owen Warner as the final three campmates. 

Mike, who left the competition in fourth place, was still wearing his jungle attire as he sported a red fleece and shorts as well as a pair of black boots and a hat.

Zara was dressed in a denim playsuit, teamed with a pair of stylish sunglasses and Veja trainers, with a small white Aspinal of London bag strapped across her body.

The daughter of Princess Anne was showcasing a golden glow following her time in Australia, as she opted for minimal make-up and wore her blonde hair tied back. 

Mike was seen embracing Scarlette Douglas, who was dressed in a bright pink jumpsuit, as they welcomed him back to normality following his jungle stint.

Meanwhile, Zara greeted Jill’s fiance Shelly Unit with a hug as the group chatted outside their accomodation.

Mike was the final star to be eliminated ahead of the much-anticipated grand finale on Sunday. 

They will each take on a gruesome challenge to win an epic final meal together in camp, consisting of a three-course banquet with a starter, main, and dessert.

But it won’t be an easy feat as Jill, Matt and Owen will either take on Flood Your Face, where the unlucky celebrity will have their head in a clear container filled with water and critters, Bushtucker Bonanza, a second instalment of the show’s iconic eating trial, or Rat Race, which will see thousands of bugs in a box.

Mike was greeted by his wife Zara, the niece of King Charles – the first royal to visit the jungle to greet a departing star – as he left the camp in Australia’s Queensland.

Zara had been missing from the ranks of friends and family who arrived in the Gold Coast two weeks ago, but the late Queen’s granddaughter had made the 9000-mile trip to support Mike before he missed out on securing a place in the final. 

Mike was the latest star to be booted out of the Australian jungle, after the four celebrities took on the iconic Celebrity Cyclone trial.

His departure meant Tory MP Matt, 44, defied the odds by making it to the show’s final three alongside Hollyoaks actor Owen, 23, and Lionness, Jill, 35.

In Sunday’s ultimate episode of the 2022 series the remaining campmates will battle it out to win the title of jungle king or queen.

The three celebrities will take on their final Bushtucker trials – and for the first time in the show’s history be forced to compete for stars in front of their fellow campmates, which ITV producers hope will add increased tension among the finalists.

After his exit was announced, Mike said he was ready to leave the jungle, after hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly told the remaining cast members they were all at risk in the public vote, rather than revealing the bottom two. 

He told Ant and Dec: ‘I’m good. It’s been a long time. I can feel my body was getting ready… I’m pretty comfortable with it.’

Upon his exit, the presenters quizzed Mike on his penchant for tiny swimwear, asking if it was his royal wife Zara Tindall’s idea for him to wear the trunks in the camp creek and the shower.

He laughed: ‘They were always my idea! You wear trunks in the shower, it’s always a but of fun. Get my pineapples out!’ 

Before heading to the bridge to meet Mike, Zara was spotted shopping in Australia’s stylish Byron Bay this week as she waited for Mike to be evicted from the show. 

Speaking to Ant and Dec about his time in the camp and his run of seven nights in the luxury campervan, Mike said: ‘It’s weird because you don’t want to go in there. 

‘You get acclimatised to where you are. I was on the bottom bunk under Owen, so it was dry. Then you go in the RV and it was weird.’

He continued: ‘Before I went in, I imagined the worst case scenario and mine is pretty bad. I was always like, ‘You know that’s going to happen so let’s not it affect you.’

‘Owen, on the other hand, wears it on all his sleeves. You know he’s hungry!

‘I think with this camp, we won a lot of full stars. If Owen had been in a camp where he only had two stars every day.

Woohoo! Jill is the favourite to win the current series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here, however some are predicting Matt Hancock could take home the crown

‘The only time I almost had a little wobble was when we had the nighttime challenge. But then Seann [Walsh] had a wobble, and I could just go back to focus on [helping] Seann.’

Mike said his positive attitude helped him overcome difficult moments in the camp: ‘It’s been a lot of laughs. That’s the best thing. You can get through anything when the humour is good.’

When quizzed on who he wanted to win the show, Mike told Ant and Dec: ‘Jill!’
