Roman Kemp discussed his bromance with rugby player, James Haskell, after a lot of their relationship wasn't televised.
After he made it to the final, Roman caught up with Sonny Jay to discuss his relationship with the rugby union player, explaining how much he meant to him.
"James was someone who - whenever I had a low point - would pull me aside and say 'What's up?'" said Roman Kemp - who's been impressing his fellow campmates with impressions of the likes of Ant & Dec and Caitlyn Jenner.
"And whenever I would say 'Nothing. I'm fine', he would be like 'No. I know you. Talk to me'.
"The day before he left, I had a really low day. I had had a really long conversation with him, and when he left, I felt really alone," shared Roman, worrying about who he could turn to for advice within the jungle.
James Haskell also caught up with Sonny Jay, and shared his feelings towards Roman, repeatedly praising the 26-year-old for being such a "talented kid".
The rugby player told Capital Breakfast that he was in awe of Roman; "To be able to be emotional, like he is; to be as intelligent; to be as interesting; to be as articulate..." He mentioned how he got on really well with Roman, and his abilities to keep the camp upbeat with his questions.
James vowed to see Roman Kemp every time he comes to London, before Roman's father, Martin, extended an invitation to the rugby star to his for Christmas.
Ro braved several Bush Tucker trials, endless bugs and underwhelming rice and beans for the full three weeks and although it's been amazing getting to watch him on our screens every night, we can't wait to have him back! He will make his grand return to Capital Breakfast on Thursday, 12 December from 6AM.
