James, who has been dating his girlfriend Kirstie for four years, said that Harry was a role model, and had offered to help him pick out an engagement ring for his future fiancee when they were back in the UK. Perhaps this is what the post-Christmas meet up was all about?

At just 23 years old, Kirstie is a year younger than James and is a model, as well as a student, finishing studies for her masters in Environment, Politics & Society at London’s UCL. Talking after he came out of the jungle, James said: "Mr Redknapp is my new best friend. I grew up five miles from where he lives in Dorset. I’ve been asking him about certain jewellers down South and he said he’d hook me up for a juicy little discount somewhere, I hope."

Talking about how Harry had helped shape James’ vision of the perfect relationship he added: "Harry and Sandra show people that love is a real thing."
