Owen Warner wants I'm A Celebrity 'bromance over romance' as he looks to shed player tag
Hollyoaks' Owen Warner is determined to show the British public he's a 'nice geezer' on I'm A Celebrity despite having been tagged a 'player' The 23-year-old actor stars as Romeo on the long-running Channel 4 soap and has seen his character involved in a number of steamy storylines since arriving on set in 2015.
Owen Warner put himself forward for the latest I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! Bushtucker Trial on Monday as the bookies' favourite took on the challenge of winning food for camp. However, ITV viewers weren't happy with Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly for repeating a trial from earlier in the series.
The trial titled Boiling Point was tackled by Chris Moyles previously but the radio legend was only able to win one star.
Both Owen and Matt Hancock put themselves forward for the trial but the latter stepped aside conceding the Hollyoaks actor had yet to do a physical trial.

"Why the f**k are #ImACeleb repeating trials?? So boring (sic)," @shelbyjane_ asked.
@murphmurph259 replied: "Because there's no way I'm a Celeb paid to build this trial only for Chris to barely do anything in it the last time round."
"The producers had to recycle this Boiling Point challenge because Chris did so badly at it the first time round it was a waste #ImACeleb," @vicambrose_ added.

Despite encountering a host of jungle critters and snakes, Owen won all nine stars on offer.
