Our very own Roman Kemp has a number of tattoos you’ll notice when he's starring on Gogglebox or other shows – two of which are a bit dodgy, he'll admit himself!

Capital Breakfast's Roman Kemp has many tattoos across his bod- some of which aren’t so easy to read thanks to the shaky hands of a few celebs who have inked him, including Niall Horan and Ed Sheeran!

During his time in the I’m A Celebrity jungle, you’ll have noticed some of his tatts – especially the giant eagle across his chest and an anchor on his left side.

Let’s take a closer look at some of Roman’s tattoos, including the more sketchy-looking ones by some very famous faces...

Niall Horan's tattoo on Roman

Niall attempted the same challenge as Ed in 2019, aiming to write the title of his latest single 'Nice To Meet Ya' onto his leg.

Instead, the former One Direction member wrote a nice big typo in the form of “Nice to melt ya” on Roman’s other shin.

Permanently. Forever. A whole spelling mistake.

Both Niall and Ed’s inkings were for Global’s Make Some Noise Day, with the 1D star donating £5,000 to the charity like the true gentleman he is.

Calligrapher no, spelling bee champion he is not, but a legend, always.

Ed Sheeran’s tattoo on Roman

In 2017, 'Beautiful People' singer and all round legend, Ed Sheeran, inked Roman with the his famous last words “Ed woz ‘ere 2k7” live on air.

The tattoo now lives forever on Roman’s shin, in a tiny, shaky font.

Hey- we could think of worse people to permanently etch their writing on your body, but we can help but think Ro' wishes the 'Shape Of You' star had a steadier hand.

So, it appears, does Ed, who later apologised to Roman's mum for the whole thing.

Eagle tattoo

The largest of his tattoos, Roman has an eagle with its wings outstretched etched into his chest.

He gave a closer look at the design when he unveiled his fitness transformation in August, displaying his newly-chiselled six pack months head of his jungle stint.

Down the right side of his torso, the Capital Breakfast Show host has a large anchor with what seems to be a lizard crawling around it.

Lizards are thought to represent the meaning of adaptation, which, if true, could remind Roman to try and adapt to the challenging jungle environment.

Meanwhile, an anchor represents hope, salvation and composure.
