It's total TV gold to watch the romances of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! take shape. Our eyes are fully peeled from the first show for any romance or naughty bits.

Remember Katie Price and Peter Andre getting married in 2005? That was a DIRECT RESULT of their relationship after meeting in the jungle a year earlier.

Since the OG of I'm A Celeb romances, many a classic coupling has formed on the show. From Spencer Matthews and Vicky Pattinson to Toff and Stanley Johnson (okay, this one isn't strictly romance - but it's SO cute), some went the distance and others fizzled out with the jungle humidity.

With that in mind, we've trawled back through the show's series from the very start in 2002 to collect every single relationship that ever existed - or NEARLY existed - on the show for you to take a trip down memory lane.

Check out all the celebrity romances from I'm A Celeb over the years

2004: Katie Price and Peter Andre

Whenever you think of I'm A Celebrity romances, Peter Andre and Katie Price's love affair is the one you think of. Although she had a boyfriend when she went into the jungle in the form of Scott Sullivan, their attraction was just too strong, and they married a year after leaving the jungle.

Of course, we know they were never involved romantically - Toff is potentially dating Jack and Stanley has been happily married to his wife Jennifer Kidd since 1981. But look at 'em! N'aww.

Ahh, the memories. We just wish there had been MORE jungle romances over the years. Although we're not sure bugs and animal genitalia create the right kind of atmosphere for romance...
