Sam Thompson declares he’s ‘missing’ Tony Bellew after jungle camp bromance

I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! winner Sam Thompson has declared that he's missing his best pal, Tony Bellew, with whom he was very close to in the jungle.

Former Made in Chelsea star Sam, 31, and ex British boxer Tony, 41, formed an unlikely bromance in the Australian jungle – which had I'm A Celeb fans charmed.

The pair ended up in the final together, with Sam narrowly beating Tony to be crowed the King of the Jungle 2023 on 10 December.

On Sunday, 17 December, Sam took to Instagram to share a solemn selfie as he wrote: "Missing you," and tagging Tony.

On his next Instagram story post, Sam could be seen walking with girlfriend Zara McDermott, 27, as he told her what he and Tony used to get up to in the jungle, as he joked: "She wants me to shut up."

Days previously, Zara had captured Sam sending Tony his first voice note since arriving back in the UK as he walked around the living room in the London home that they share.

He says: "I slept really, really well last night, I slept 9pm to 8am so I got loads and loads of hours on me which is great.

"Don't feel obliged to reply to this voicenote with a voicenote, you can text me instead."

This isn't the first time Sam has contacted Tony since the show ended – on Thursday night he posted a series of photos of them together and wrote: "Missing the big guy already. T-Bone for short….or T-Bag if he’s feeling Particularly villainous (he wasn’t a fan of that one) need to update you on so much mate!"

Tony seems equally keen on staying in touch with Sam, as on Thursday he told his Instagram followers: "I'm over the moon, I can't believe I got as far as I did.

Speaking to the camera – with his jungle beard still visible – he said: "Sam, you was amazing lad, no-one deserved it more".

Writing alongside the video, the boxer commented: "I’m back! Just a post to say I’m back from an amazing adventure for me and my family! Met some lifelong friends and made some remarkable memories and some I would rather forget!! Massive thanks to my campmates, everyone involved @itv @imacelebrity and even those two @antanddec who seemed to thrive in my misery!

"Finally a huge thank you to everyone who supported me and who took time to vote for me to stay in that jungle and congrats @samthompsonuk a deserved winner!"
