The 51-year-old actor is married to British architect Scott Gill and joked during an interview with the Daily Mirror that one of the reasons for signing up to I'm A Celeb was to take a break" from his other half.

How did John Barrowman meet Scott Gill?

The pair met at Chichester in 1991 when Scott went to the Chichester Festival Theatre to watch John in a play called Rope.

Apparently John knew "he wanted to spend the rest of his life with" Scott as soon as they met.

The pair entered into a civil partnership in December 2006 and married in California in 2013, one of the first couples to do so as soon as it became legal.

The pair have kept their relationship relatively low key despite John living his life in the spotlight as an actor.

I'm A Celeb fans may get a chance to see the pair together as he will likely be there to greet his hubby when he eventually exits the jungle.
