I'm A Celebrity's Lisa Snowdon on finding her soulmate at 44

Hanna Fillingham

I'm A Celebrity's Lisa Snowdon has been settling into life in the jungle, away from her two most luxury items - food and George Smart, her boyfriend of the past year.

Lisa Snowdon entered the celebrity jungle on Sunday night

In an exclusive interview with HELLO!, Lisa made it clear that she was besotted with her handsome boyfriend, declaring: "He's the kindest, most loving person I've ever met... he's my best friend. It feels like we were meant to be together."

Spending three weeks in the jungle without George will no doubt be tough for Lisa, 44, who has been inseparable from him since the pair were re-introduced a year ago, having met 14 years earlier while both working at MTV.

"We had a little liaison back then but I hadn't seen him since. Then, a year ago, we were re-introduced. He asked me for dinner and immediately there was a familiarity and an element of trust," she said.

Lisa and her boyfriend, George Smart, have been happily dating for the last year

In fact, it looks like marriage may soon be on the cards when Lisa leaves the perils of the jungle, with the model gushing: "We're in sync and feel exactly the same way about each other... I know we'll be together forever."

Lisa and George recently enjoyed a holiday in Antigua

The pair live together in Essex, and recently went away on a romantic trip to the Caribbean island of Antigua.

Speaking about going into the jungle, Lisa had previously doubted if she would be up for the challenge, saying: "I love the show but I don't know if I could do it. It would be such a challenge being away from home with no contact of food - I love my food."

Surely after surviving the first night without George, any gruesome bushtucker trial will be a breeze for the model!
