Mike Tindall has been very vocal about supporting his friend, I'm a Celebrity contestant James Haskell. And now, James' wife Chloe Madeley has hinted that she could be taking the royal out to Australia with her. Taking to her Instagram Stories, the fitness enthusiast shared a snap with Mike, James and some of their mutual friends from their recent trip to Japan.
