I'm A Celebrity 2016: Matt Damon's friend Lisa Snowdon kicks off some MAJOR namedropping

Martin Roberts apparently counts Mark Wahlberg and Daniel Craig among his fans

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! 2016 - Lisa Snowdon

The I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! campmates did some SERIOUS namedropping yesterday - and it seems Martin Roberts' show Homes Under The Hammer has two A-list superfans.

The discussion began when Lisa Snowdon revealed that she's "really good" pals with Hollywood actor Matt Damon.

Speaking about the lack of food, the former Capital DJ said the celebs should pretend they're losing weight for movie roles: "Like Matt Damon, he’s always having to do extreme stuff... he’s a friend of mine."

"Are you friends with Matt Damon?!" Joel Dommett asked incredulously.

"Yes, he came to my birthday party, he’s really nice," Lisa explained. "I got really close to his wife when I was dating somebody else, he’s a good dude, and we’ve stayed with him and stuff.

"When he's in extreme diet mode, his willpower is insane and I just try to channel that kind of stuff."

Wayne Bridge then told of an encounter he had with boxer Mike Tyson. "I went with friends to Las Vegas and I went to get a thing signed and he was going 'Bridgey, Bridgey, Bridgey'. It was weird!" he grinned.

Olympian Sam Quek mentioned meeting Princes William and Harry, while Larry Lamb recalled the time he worked with Bob Dylan.

"The film never really went anywhere," he commented. "He was playing an old rock and roller who was coming out of retirement and I was playing his manager."

Martin also got involved with not one, but two superstar namedrops. "On a press junket Mark Wahlberg said he watched Homes Under The Hammer," he said.

"And a friend of mine was a make up artist on Skyfall, and was doing Daniel Craig one day, and Homes Under The Hammer was on the TV.

"A runner came in to change channels, and he told them to leave it on, saying he really liked it. So allegedly, first hand, Daniel Craig likes Homes Under The Hammer as well!"

Shame we'll probably never see any of these names in the jungle!
