I'm A Celebrity 2019 is underway and Ian Wright's shaky start to the programme seems to have gone down well with one man in particular.

Along with Roy Keane, the former footballer provided one of the most viral moments of the 2018 World Cup when the pair butted heads on whether England were celebrating success a bit prematurely. If you missed the clip at the time or need a refresher on Wrighty's Cork impression ("FI-nal"!) then you can see the clip here.

The ITV pundits eventually kissed and made up but as we all know, Keano doesn't forget easily. Working in Kosovo last night as part of the station's coverage England's 4-0 victory over the hosts, Roy joined his colleagues to see how their pal was getting on over in Australia. A couple of clips have been posted of the team following events on a projector and it's clear that the Corkman enjoyed watching Ian struggle to walk along an unstable plank 334ft above the ground.

You can see Roy smirking along with the rest of the group in the two below clips...

Like most people, they couldn't take their eyes off the opening night of I'm A Celebrity and they're sure to be equally gripped as the series progresses. Wright is joined in the current series by the likes of Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell, Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle and Olympic gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner.

Sportspeople have proved popular on I'm A Celebrity before, with Harry Redknapp being crowned King Of The Jungle last year and superbike racer Carl Fogarty and cricketer Phil Tufnell also winning in the past.

We'll just have to wait and see if Wrighty makes that 'FI-nal'. No doubt Roy will be rooting for him 100%.
