Forget Scarlett and Larry (although don't), but I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here viewers think there might be romance on the cards for Joel Dommett and Carol Vorderman...
Besides the critters, creepy crawlies and moments of utter comedy gold, there is nothing we love more than a lil’ I’m A Celebrity jungle lovin’.
And guess what? As early into the new series as we are, it appears there is already a fan favourite romance in the works. And no, we’re not talking about Scarlett Moffatt and Larry Lamb.
We give you, Carol Volderman and Joel Dommett. An unlikely pairing brought together by the romance of… er, mathematics. Yup, whatever floats ‘ya boat.
So, during last nights episode of I’m A Celeb, fans were very quick to clock on to what they deemed as an underlying chemistry between Countdown queen Carol Vorderman and full-time funny man Joel Dommett.
Whilst the camp mates were kicking back last night discussing Carol’s career, Joel decided it was high time he revealed his mathematical themed Pi tattoo. What a coincidence, Joel!
Carol made no secret of her delight at Joel’s revelation, immediately asking him ‘how many places’ he had gotten his tattoo.
Joel then told Carol, ‘When I was a kid, I memorised it to 106 decimal places…if Pi was a finite number, the world would end’.
Yup, we have absolutely no clue what is going on here either.
Fans immediately took to social media to share their delight at ‘math sex’ (their words, not ours), with Tweets reading messages such as ‘Joel and Carol are gonna have math sex #ImACeleb‘ and ‘Has Joel just pulled carol by listing the numbers in Pi’.
The pair, who are notably the only single camp mates this year, also managed to share a flirty exchange over a ‘stick’ later in the episode. Because, ya’know, when you’re in a jungle, flirting material can run a little dry…

In a clip aired on Extra Camp, the ITV2 second show, the pair exchange some rather suggestive jokes about ‘stick’ sizes. Carol is heard asking Joel ‘When was the last time you had a good stick?’, to which Joel replies ‘A while ago!’.
Carol then asked, ‘Is anyone allowed to touch the stick Joel?’, to which Joel replied ‘‘Absolutely Carol. You can touch the stick’.
Blimey you two! We wonder if the fans are on to something here…
