Frankie and Wayne Bridge have taken it turns having their stint in the jungle, but how did they meet and how long have they been together?
The former Premier League footballer competed in the survival reality series back in 2016, with his wife supporting him every step of the way!
Now, it's The Saturdays star's turn to take on the dreaded bushtucker trials, as she's a favourite to win the 21st season of the show.
So, how did the reality television stars meet and when did they get married? Let’s take a look at their journey…
Frankie, 32, and Wayne, 41, began dating over a decade ago back in 2010.
The pair were introduced by none other than mutual friend James Corden – he's a celebrity cupid!
Wayne spoke about the set-up with his beau at the hands of Corden during his stint on I'm A Celeb, he said: "He got her phone, put my number in it and then put her number in my phone.
"And then we basically text a little bit, and just ended up going for dinner," he revealed to his fellow contestants in the jungle.
The famous couple dated for three years before the sportsman popped the question!
They became engaged in 2013 and the pop star even divulged some information on the adorable moment on Capital Breakfast way back in 2016!
She said: "Wayne took me to a hotel and he got my dogs involved. I didn't know my dogs were there and they came in in little bride and groom outfits. And Pixie had the ring around her neck on a ribbon."
Her dazzling ring is estimated to be worth an eye-watering £40,000.
They tied a knot just a year after their engagement, having a very lavish ceremony in 2014.
The wedding took place at the mystical Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire, they had a star-studded guest list with Frankie's bandmates in attendance; Una Foden, Rochelle Humes, Mollie King and Vanessa White.
