It was a bang when the British TV station "ITV" announced the cast for this year's edition of "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here". For the first time, Mike Tindall is a member of the British royal family in the jungle camp in Australia. And the former rugby star delivers exactly the kind of entertainment viewers were hoping for. The highlight so far came yesterday: Tendall revealed how his royal mother-in-law saw his testicles.
It happened at his wife Zara Tindall's 30th birthday party, he reports in a chat with the two comedians Seann Walsh and Babatúndé Aléshé. King Charles' niece chose a seventies disco theme for the party. He danced while wearing bell-bottoms. "They were pretty tight, a rugby player's bottom and legs never fit," he quips. "So I danced with my mother-in-law" - that is, with Princess Anne, the sister of King Charles. "Then my sack slipped out."
"Mike's sack slips out in front of Princess Anne," Seann later summarized in a mixture of horror and fascination in the single cabin. "And that's not even the end of the story!" In fact, it got even more embarrassing.
"My pants burst, right in front of her," Mike reveals, first of all, how exactly his crown jewels were exposed. Then came the worst embarrassment: "The boxer shorts I was wearing had an imprint: 'Eat my nuts'." The two listeners are already on the floor laughing, Babatúndé Aléshé slowly applauds the story. "Love it, Bravo," he comments, shaking his head. But Mike isn't done yet. "As I slowly turn around, I hear from her: 'I'd rather not do that'. And I just think to myself: Yep, I'll go then," he concludes his story with a broad grin.
With the story told in perfect timing, he is extremely well received by the two professional comedians. "Big Mike is a legend. An absolute legend," summarizes Babatúndé at the end.
