During this year’s series, viewers have noticed sparks flying between the pair, who are the only single contestants.
Their flirting was first spotted when Carol was impressed at Joel’s maths knowledge, and later progressed to some cheeky innuendos.
Carol’s close pal, Amanda Prowse, has now landed in Australia, and it seems she’s as keen to see her get together with Joel as the rest of us are.
She said (via The Sun): “Carol is single. Joel is single. They are having a lovely little flirt.
Urging bosses to do their best to make it happen, Amanda added: “It is Christmas and you never know - maybe a kiss will happen.
Joel previously expressed interest in Carol before heading into the jungle, joking to reporters after touching down at Brisbane airport: “I like maths. I like to show my working out. I think she would appreciate that.”
‘I’m A Celebrity’ continues on Thursday night (24 November) at 9pm on ITV.
