Anne Hegerty has a crush on her fellow I’m A Celebrity campmate John Barrowman, according to her The Chase co-star Mark Labbett.

Anne, 60, entered the jungle alongside comedian John on Sunday night as the brand new series of the reality show returned.

Mark, who is known for playing “The Beast” on the ITV game show, took to Twitter to let fans know that Anne has a little soft spot for John.

Anne and John are currently in separate camps after his team beat hers in the first challenge of the series on Sunday night.

While the quizzer took up residence in basic Snake Rock, John has been living it up in the more luxurious camp Croc Creek.

Anne has had a tough time so far on the show after breaking down in tears on the first day, admitting she felt “overwhelmed”.

During the launch episode of the reality show, Anne – who was diagnosed with autism in 2007 – told her fellow campmates: “I’m really close to saying I can’t do this.”

Her new friends and fellow contestants, Rita Simons, Emily Atack and Fleur East offered support.

The Inbetweeners actress Emily later told the Bush Telegraph: “Anne got a bit upset so we gave her a cuddle. It’s overwhelming.

“I think she was just expressing how we were all feeling, we just didn’t want to admit it!”

After being comforted by her campmates, Anne told the Bush Telegraph: “They’re absolutely brilliant, they’re a fantastic bunch. I like them, they’re my team.”

It was revealed on Monday that Anne would be taking on Tuesday evening’s Monstrous Monoliths Trial.

The show’s official Twitter page released a preview clip to Twitter on Tuesday ahead of Anne’s trial tonight.

Will Anne be able to bag the stars in order to feed her fellow campmates?
