Mike Tindall has broken ITV’s strict Covid regulations by attacking an assistant producer on I’m A Celeb

Mike Tindall has broken ITV’s strict Covid regulations by playfully attacking an I’m A Celeb assistant producer, MailOnline can reveal.

The former England rugby ace, 44, who is married to Zara Phillips, 41, the late Queen’s granddaughter, was seen pretending to throw a crew member into the water from a pontoon days before entering the jungle.

He broke strict show rules by physically touching the television staff member, who was wearing a face covering, as the crew and celebrity cast are required to remain at least six feet apart throughout their time on the series.

A source explained: “All crew will be told to stay two meters away from cast, which is a Covid requirement. Sound and Security doing tests are the only people who can come into contact with the celebs.

“The crew are also being asked to wear face coverings to prevent a Covid outbreak on set which would completely ruin the show.

“Mike’s having physical contact with the assistant producer was a breach of the rules and he shouldn’t have approached her.

“She was totally surprised, she’s fantastic at her job and didn’t expect Mike to behave like him.”

Mike’s rulebreak came days before Olivia Attwood, 31, was forced to withdraw from I’m A Celeb because her Covid regulations did not allow her to return to camp.

The TV personality left the jungle after a medical issue – but was not granted access back to camp after breaking the show’s strict Covid bubble.

For Olivia to be allowed back on set, she would have had to endure another week of isolation, which was deemed “impossible”.

Mike and the blonde producer were photographed together on Australia’s Gold Coast before entering the TV jungle last Friday.

The athlete, who an eyewitness said was full of energy after completing his quarantine, threw it off guard.

A viewer told The Sun: “Mike cheekily ran behind the handsome crewmember before swinging her around on the pontoon.

“At one point he acted like he was pushing her over the edge while killing time while waiting to be taken to his first trial.

“Mike is bursting with energy after being locked up in isolation for a week and will be full of mischief at camp.”

She also warned him to keep his uncouth eating habits in check and stay away from the cameras.

Mike said, “We’ve got things to do out here. So when it comes to an end, hopefully she can come out.

“Zara told me to go and be myself, which is all you can be. She said go, enjoy and be yourself. Zara’s biggest concern is how noisy I am when eating.

“She’ll be delighted if anyone comments on how loudly I breathe while eating, as it’s always a point she brings up.”

It’s not the first time Mike – who shares three children Mia, 8, Lena, 4, and Lucas, 1, with his wife of 11, has publicly pulled similar pranks over the years.

In 2011, while captaining England, he was fined £25,000 by the RFU for “grave misconduct” for taking part in a “dwarf tossing competition” with some team-mates at a bar in New Zealand.

He was also pictured that same evening with his arm around “old flame” Jessica Palmer.

An ITV spokesman added: “ITV Studios and Lifted Entertainment operate a strict set of Covid protocols and procedures to ensure the safety and security of our cast and crew.

“We conducted detailed risk assessments during filming and are satisfied that no protocols were broken.”
