Mike Tindall has blown away I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! fans after debuting his incredible rap skills on Monday 7 November's episode of the fan favourite show.

The 44 year old former rugby star, whose pal recently said he's "under pressure" to represent his royal in laws, was sat around camp with his fellow stars when he launched into rapping Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby. Much to the surprise and delight of his new pals, he didn't miss a single lyric or beat as he belted out the lyrics of the 80s hit.

He further shocked his co-stars when he announced he knew all the words to Will Smith's Boom! Shake The Room. And with a little encouragement, he rapped the hit as everyone joined in for the chorus.

Mike's celebrity pals weren't the only ones impressed though as fans at home couldn't get over his hidden talent and branded him "Vanilla Mike".

One person joked: "The appearance of Vanilla Mike The Fresh Prince of Royal Windsor was most unexpected on #ImACeleb".

While another took a jibe at Stormzy, whose album Gang Signs & Prayer became the first album to win the Brit Award for British Album of the Year. They said: "Sorry stormzy there's a new big Mike in the rap game #ImACeleb".

As a third joked: "Can't wait for the rap battle between Vanilla Mike and Hancock #ImACeleb".

Earlier in the I'm A Celeb episode, Mike recalled meeting his wife Zara Tindall, who is Princess Anne's only daughter and the late Queen's granddaughter, for the first time.

While the former England rugby ace kept surprisingly tight-lipped on his in-laws during the ITV show's launch, the sports star and dad-of-three finally spilled some personal details to his campmates during Monday's instalment.

Chatting with 34 year old comedian Babatúndé Aléshé and Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, 23, Mike spilled all on his first meeting with Zara during the Rugby World Cup in Australia and their subsequent "boozy" first date.

"I was at the World Cup, she was out watching," the star began. "I got dropped from the semi-final.

"I was p****d off and so I went for a beer with another guy who got dropped and a guy who was over [in Sydney]. They’d met her before and they introduced us and then got chatting.”

“So if you never got dropped you never would have met her?” Owen quizzed, as Mike joked it had been the "best decision" of player Clive Woodward's life.

The trio giggled away at Mike's memories as he went on to say he and Zara chose a "local lunch" for their first official date, which ended up being "quite a boozy one".

"Then we figured out that we both quite like getting smashed. It was a good start," Mike joked.
