Ferne and Vicky are good friends.

Way before Pete hooked up with Megan McKenna, he was a single guy, and Ferne reckoned he'd get on perfectly with Vicks.

Chatting on ITV's This Morning, she said: "Vicky has revealed I tried to set her up with Peter Wicks and I did. In the jungle, you have so much time to talk about anything and I said, 'Oh, Peter Wicks would be good for you,' but it didn't work out."

Pete Wicks, pictured in TOWIE, is now dating Megan McKenna.

When quizzed on whether Vicky and Pete had actually "tried" to make it work, she remained quite coy.

"I dunno! I think they maybe went on a couple of dates," said Ferne, before changing subject to Vicky's recent decision to end a blossoming romance with Spencer Matthews, another I'm A Celebrity co-star.

"Vicky recently dumped Spencer Matthews," said Ferne. "I spent one night with them in the jungle. 24 hours. And I spotted there was definitely chemistry, and I went for drinks with them recently.

"She's moving to Essex, my hometown, so we will definitely be on the manhunt together!"
