I'm A Celebrity 2016: Joel Dommett confesses that he has a secret girlfriend


Joel Dommett may not be as single as everyone thought, as the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! contestant has revealed he has a secret girlfriend.

The comedian was thought to be unattached as he entered the jungle, and has been teased about the "romantic undertones" of his friendship with Carol Vorderman.

It turns out that isn't the case, as yesterday he admitted to Scarlett Moffatt that he is seeing someone.

But while Joel may not technically be single, his hectic schedule means he's not confident that love will blossom.

"I started dating someone before I came out here and am genuinely looking forward to seeing her again," he explained. "But the problem is that I immediately go away for work again.

"It's just really hard because I go, 'I really like you, see you in March'. It's hard to date a normal person who has a normal job."

When Scarlett commented that her boyfriend works in an office environment, Joel continued: "Yes, but you don't work at night, whereas I film during the day and pretty much gig every night.

"Basically, I need to date someone who does nightshifts, like a nurse, or Batman, or strippers."

However, Joel does have fond memories of one of his past romances. "I dated a policewoman for a while and she was lovely, it's really fun dating a policewoman," he said.

Scarlett smirked: "I don't want to know the ins and outs of why that is."

"It wasn't anything like 'let's use your handcuffs', because that would be the equivalent of her, like, asking me to tell jokes in the bedroom," Joel laughed.

The grand final of I'm A Celebrity 2016 airs tomorrow night at 9.00pm on ITV.
