I’m A Celebrity: Anne Hegerty’s secret ‘husband’ Jake Hester exposed by viewers

Anne Hegerty shocked I’m A Celebrity viewers on Wednesday night by revealing she has a ‘husband’ – but though she doesn’t remember getting married.

The Chase star explained to her campmates that, according to her Wikipedia page, she is married to the mysterious Jake Hester.

The pair reportedly tied the knot in 2015, but Anne confessed she doesn’t actually know who he is.

On correcting her own page, Anne said: "I’ve stopped bothering. Wikipedia still says I’m married to someone called Jake Hester. I’ve got no idea who Jake Hester is."

This caused quite the stir in camp, with singer Fleur East joking that Mr Hester would appear at the end of the bridge when she leaves the jungle.
