He told The Sun: ‘I think we’ll be engaged within the next six months. I’ve not got a ring yet though.

‘I was joking round with the other Vamps boys saying that my one special item should have been an engagement ring, and I could have really embarrassed her on the bridge coming off, but I’ve not had time to get it yet.’

James was keen to clear up any misconceptions about his stunning bride-to-be, insisting he forgave her years ago.

The musician said he was upset by the ‘negativity’ Kirstie received about the allegations, and he never blamed her because they were so young.

He said: ‘In hindsight, I really, really feel for her, because she was 19, she’d never been in a relationship, and I’d just had a difficult kind of relationship with an ex girlfriend, and I think it was that weird territory of I thought something more was happening than she thought.’

James kicked off his jungle stint in style on Sunday night’s launch episode of I’m A Celebrity.

He joined John Barrowman, Sair Khan and Rita Simons in taking on the nail-biting first challenge, dubbed The Edge.

The four celebrities seemed ready as they arrived at the two towers which hovered in the air at Tanninaba Falls, a Queensland beauty spot, before they had to climb them to collect as many flags as possible.

Split into two teams, red for John and Sair and yellow for James and Rita, the group had to take in turns to try and get the flags that were numbered 1 through to 10.

James was up first, and he was clearly uncomfortable in the harness as he complained: ‘Oooh, its tight in the groin area.’

After getting his first flag, Rita was able to start climbing to get the second flag and eventually got into a groove until they completed the task.

When they finished Rita commented that it ‘was so scary’, but James was quick to amusingly add: ‘It’s hard isn’t it? At least you don’t have testicles.’
