John Barrowman reveals he was caught stealing from Prince Charles

He had his eye on some royal goodies

I’m A Celebrity’s John Barrowman has amused viewers after admitting he pinched champagne glasses from the royal family after he performed for them!

During last night’s episode the celebs discussed who had met royalty, which sparked the actor’s confession.

Recalling the time he was invited to perform for Prince Charles at his country estate, John told his campmates: “On the way out I took two champagne flutes. I got my friend to put one under the seat and told her no-one would know.”

But that didn’t turn out to be the case…

Rather embarrassingly, Charles apparently spotted the missing items and had a hilarious reaction to it.

John continued: “Two days later, a box arrived at the house in Cardiff from his office of four glasses with a card referencing ‘we understand that you like them.'”

The 51-year-old then revealed that his family still use the glasses, since the royals so kindly completed the set!

He said: “To this day my dad drinks his whiskey out of those glasses with the fleur de lis on them. I mean, who wouldn’t take a glass if you are doing that, right? Don’t tell anybody or they won’t have me back!”

I’m A Celeb viewers found his admission hysterical as well.

One fan tweeted: “#ImACeleb a great way of Prince Charles household to say to John we know u took the glasses😂 . Now that’s class”.

Another commented: “John stealing the champagne flutes from Prince Charles and getting the rest of the set in the post 😂 #ImACeleb.”

But that wasn’t the only secret John decided to share with the nation…

He also declared that he had a wee in Prince Charles’ garden on the eventful night!
