I'm A Celebrity's Owen Warner has left viewers in hysterics once again, this time by asking whether a member of the Royal Family is Australian.

During a chat in camp about how the celebrities met their partners, Mike Tindall recalled meeting his wife Zara Phillips - the King's niece and 20th in line to the throne - while they were both in Australia in 2003 and he was playing in the Rugby World Cup.

But Hollyoaks actor Warner, 23, seemed either unaware of who Zara Phillips was or unclear on how the Royal Family works as he referred to her as "Lara" and asked Tindall: "Is she Australian?"

One amazed viewer tweeted: "Did Owen just ask Mike Tindall if his wife's Australian?! Cannot cope with this lad."

Someone else commented: "I can’t believe Owen Warner asked Boy George his name and has now asked Mike Tindall if his wife is Australian it’s gonna be a long three weeks."

Another person wrote: "Did Owen just ask Mike Tindall if Zara was Australian? Oh my god."

In the series' first episode, Warner had made viewers laugh by asking music icon Boy George what his name was, as well as fellow soap star Sue Cleaver.

One viewer tweeted: "i love how owen is (probably unintentionally) humbling all the celebs. first off he asks boy george who he is and now he asked mike tindall if his wife is australian."

Some of the other campmates decided to have fun at Warner's expense, with radio DJ Chris Moyles realising the actor didn't know who he was either and managing to convince him that he was a world champion dancer.

One viewer wrote: "Chris convincing Owen that he’s a professional dancer is the most INCREDIBLE telly."

Warner also looked confused as the campmates cheered on Tindall performing DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince 90s hit 'Boom! Shake the Room', with Babatunde Aléshé joking that they should have put Paw Patrol on for him instead.

Later in the episode, Warner and Jill Scott were sent to complete a challenge that involved doing a crossword and joked with each other that they were the worst campmates to pick.

Referring to The Inbetweeners Movie's characters Neil and Lisa, one viewer tweeted: "Owen and Jill give me proper Neil and Lisa vibes."

Others were surprised that Warner knew one of the answers was "coq au vin" - although he struggled with the spelling, trying to make "cok au van" fit.

A viewer tweeted: "How on EARTH does Owen know nothing but knows what coq-au-vin is."

Someone else added: "Owen bab, ya can’t be doing Joey Essex cosplay in the day, and then knowing what coq au vin is in the night."

However, some viewers thought that Warner could be the camp's secret weapon when late addition Matt Hancock arrives by forcing the disgraced former Health Secretary to explain his actions during the pandemic.

One person tweeted: "I hope Owen asks Hancock a seemingly cute and naive question about what he did wrong which absolutely skewers him."

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight at 9.15pm on ITV.
