Mike Tindall has launched his own line of budgy smugglers for charity after sporting the swimwear during his time on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The 44-year-old former rugby player, who came fourth in the ITV series over the weekend, caught viewers’ attention when he wore the tight trunks as he took a dip in the pool while in the Australian jungle.

His new limited edition run created in collaboration with his team from The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast features two jungle-inspired designs, one branded with the phrase “These are not my wife’s” and the other with “Nibble my nuts”.

Profits from each sale will go towards Cure Parkinson’s to help fund their research into the condition.

Tindall has previously discussed the devastating effect Parkinson’s disease has had on his father, who was diagnosed in 2003.

Parkinson’s disease is a condition in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years, according to the NHS website.

The charity range is available from the Budgy Smugglers UK website, with the description: “Wrap a bit of the Australian Jungle around you and dive right in” adding “Made in Australia, Inspired by Mike”.

Tindall narrowly missed out on a place in Sunday night’s final after becoming the eighth contestant eliminated from the ITV show on Saturday.

Following his appearance on the reality series, he said he plans to “bashfully hide away” at his next family gathering after amusing his campmates with a story of him splitting his trousers in front of his mother-in-law, the Princess Royal.

The former rugby player told his co-stars during his time on the show about the incident, which occurred on the dance floor at his wife Zara’s 70s-themed 30th birthday party, prompting much laughter.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain on Monday, he addressed whether he knew how many members of the royal family had been watching him.
