Ferne McCann has made no secret of the fact she fancies I'm A Celebrity Joel Dommett, and she might just be in luck, as the comedian has agreed to go on a date with her.

Could we have a hot new romance on our hands?!

If, like us, you've been having major jungle withdrawal symptoms lately, then you would have loved seeing Joel's face pop up back on your screens as he stopped by This Morning.

The I'm A Celeb runner-up chatted to hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes and the pair made sure to drop former TOWIE star Ferne into conversation.

Joel was already privvy to Ferne having the hots for him, as he had been told during a live quiz This Morning carried out live with the celebrities in camp. He was asked what he thought of Ferne and Joel revealed: "I think she's absolutely wonderful."

He was shown a clip of Ferne confessing to fancying him and Ruth asked Joel whether he would be interested in going on a date with Ferne. Joel replied: "It's Ferne McCann not Ferne McCan't, let's do it."

He then joked he'd have to ask his mum first, adding: "I'll ask Penny."

Ruth pointed out that actually Penny had already given her approval of Ferne and Joel responded: "I like how you're asking my mother before asking me!"

Penny had appeared on This Morning to discuss Joel's time in the jungle and Holly Willoughby took the opportunity to play matchmaker. She told Penny that Ferne had confessed to liking Joel and asked her whether she thinks Joel and Ferne would suit each other.

Poor Ferne was left a little red-faced, as she had actually been sat of the sofa alongside Holly.

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

Joel, meanwhile, has since claimed that mum Penny is loving her new found fame.

So much so, that she was gutted when Joel didn't get his moment on the bridge following his I'm A Celebrity exit.

Joel had made it to the final two in camp and shared his exit interview with eventual winner Scarlett Moffatt. While she was crowned the new Queen of the jungle and sent off over the bridge to greet her family, Joel had to stay behind in the studio.

"My mum was livid," he said. "She was livid. She was like, 'Joel that was my moment.' She wanted to cry on the bridge and get offered an Oscar or something."

A selfie Joel had taken with his mum popped up on the screen beside Joel as he spoke about his mum, and he said in response: "There she is. Penny Dommett. I posted that Instagram and she was like, 'Joel you didn't mention me, can you please @ me? I want to get more followers.'"

LOVE that!
