Ferne McCann has revealed she has the hots for I'm A Celebrity's Joel Dommett, so it was only natural for Holly Willoughby to try and play matchmaker when she and Ferne spoke to Joel's mum via video link...

We so would have done the same!

Ferne first revealed she fancied Joel when discussing a naked photo of his, err, private parts that had surfaced online.

Joel had actually mentioned the snap himself in the jungle, when the campmates had to decide what percentage of men thought sending naked selfies was 'cheating', to win themselves dingo dollars.

Ferne admitted she had googled Joel's racy picture, adding: "I quite fancy Joel."

So, when Holly got to speak to Joel's mother on This Morning, she was quick to ask whether Joel and Ferne would suit.

Holly said: "So [Joel] is single... is Ferne his kind of woman?" - Not bothered that former TOWIE star Ferne had actually been sitting alongside her in the studio. Awkward!

Joel's mum, Penny, replied: "I'm sure he'd think Ferne is wonderful because she sounds lovely!"

Ooh, maybe I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp presenter and Ferne's BFF Vicky Pattison can introduce the pair...

Penny continued: "To be honest, [Joel] finds lots of people interesting. He loves to find out things about people, he loves to chat. He's generally a nice person."

At that Ore Oduba (who had been stepping in for Phillip Schofield) wanted to find out what Joel's mum made of *those* rumours he and Carol Vorderman could be this year's jungle romance.

Ore asked: "[Joel] has been very nice to Carol in the jungle, should Ferne be worried?"

Penny smiled and replied: "Joel has been brought up very well and is very respectful... and I'm sure Carol is absolutely lovely. All of the guys in there have been fantastic, haven't they?"

In a nutshell: she dodged the question!

Fans will see Joel go head-to-head with Adam in the latest trial, a drinking one, named the Bushtucker Brewery. If Joel manages to beat Adam, he'll steal his royal status and bag himself immunity from the first public vote.

The current royals in camp are Adam, Wayne Bridge, Sam Quek and Martin Roberts, as they were the four celebrities to complete the Vicious Circle trial in the fastest time.

I'm A Celebrity airs nightly on ITV.
