When we heard Luke Crodden didn't meet Scarlett Moffatt at the airport after she was crowned Queen of the Jungle in this year's I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, we were far from impressed. but it turns out there was more to the decision than meets the eye.
While being interviewed on her homecoming by OK! Magazine, the couple revealed the circumstances surrounding their reunion, and it seems the couple's pet dog, Bonnie, meant he was unable to make the tearful reunion in the Arrivals hall.
Explaining why he didn't show up, Luke said: "Because I had our dog Bonnie and I had so much stuff to take over to her parents."
But once they did finally find themselves in the same location, Luke struggled to hide his emotions, saying: "I basically kicked the door through to get to her. I ran into the sitting room, grabbed hold of her and didn’t let go for the rest of the night."
Admitting he cried after seeing Scarlett in person for the first time in almost a month, he added: “I was going to say no I wasn’t, but aye, I was.”
Chiming in, the Gogglebox star revealed there was a pair of them in it, saying: "Yeah, we couldn’t stop crying when we were reunited. It’s the longest we’ve ever been apart. Never, ever again."
Celebrating his girlfriend's triumphant return, Luke went all out on the food front, and stocked up on Scarlett's favourites.
"When I got home me and Luke ordered two pixies, chips, doner meat, loads of garlic sauce and chilli," Scarlett said. "And Luke bought us some bourbon biscuits, custard creams, chocolate digestives and Hobnobs."
“He was my Prince Charming, coming round with a bag of biscuits," she added.
Sounds like our kind of lad.
