Mike Tindall is no stranger to a gruelling challenge, and on Wednesday, the former I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! contestant was supported by fans after revealing he is taking on another brutal task.

Mike certainly has a penchant for trying on Zara's hats!

A third replied writing: "Go on the Gloucester boys! From a fellow Gloucester girl."

The exciting competition news came just hours after Mike made a hilarious quip ahead of a glamorous day date next week with his beautiful wife Zara Tindall as they are going to be heading to Cheltenham.

Mike has a history of trying on Zara's fabulous collection of vibrant hats she famously dons when attending the roacing or royal events.

Zara knows how to rock a fabulous accessory 

Sharing a video on his Instagram, Mike posted a hilarious compilation of all his wife's previously worn hats including an unseen photo of him posing up a storm in one of them last year.

Mike had royal fans in stitches last year when he began posting pictures of himself wearing his wife Zara's hats during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. And he continued the joke at the Epsom and Royal Ascot races last summer.

The Tindalls confirmed they will be attending this year's Cheltenham Festival from 14 to 17 March.
