Former 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!' campmates Joey Essex and Amy Willerton have done nothing to dispel rumours of a romance after cosying up for a snap on a sunlounger.

Enjoying the luxuries of the Versace Hotel on Australia's gold coast after escaping the jungle on Friday night, the pair looked closer than ever as they soaked up some rays together.

He later shared a snap of the two of them tucking into a post-jungle feast, writing: "Room service on first night #foodglourousfood."

It came after Joey admitted there was "sexual tension" between the two of them in the jungle, and that they are "closer than friends".

“There was sexual tension but we couldn’t do anything because there isn’t any privacy in there. There are 12 people, cameras and millions of people watching."

He added: “It would have been nice to show everyone what is happening with us because we are closer than friends, although we are not in a relationship."

However, Amy has said that she isn't looking for a relationship with Joey.

The pair were axed from the jungle on Friday in a surprise double eviction.

Westlife singer Kian Egan was crowned King Of The Jungle as the series ended on Sunday night.
