Duncan Bannatyne's girlfriend Nigora Whitehorn is showing unwavering support for her man while he navigates the Australian jungle.

Duncan Bannatyne's girlfriend Nigora Whitehorn is "so proud" of his efforts on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

The TV star has ditched the Dragons' Den for the jungle, where he impressed viewers by acing a tough water-based task. Right at the front of the queue to congratulate the 66-year-old when he returns from Australia will be brunette bombshell Nigora, who has been tuning in religiously.

"I'm so proud of my man #ImACelebrity @DuncanBannatyne love you #Barbados #okshoot #bikini by @wearecarisena (sic)," she posted, adding a snap of the happy couple during a recent shoot for Britain's OK! magazine.

While some fans might be surprised by Duncan's efforts so far, the business mogul always knew he was up to the challenge.

"I will be pretty good unless someone gets on my nerves and starts complaining or moaning all the time," he previously told ITV. "If they don't pull their weight I will get annoyed."

While Duncan is clearly in a happy relationship, the other contestants are using the jungle as a way to find love. Union J star George Shelley has already made his mark as the show's heartthrob, catching the eyes of TOWIE's Ferne McCann and Geordie Shore's Vicky Pattison.

"When I saw George in the line-up, first I thought I was old enough to be his ma. What is he, 15?" Vicky laughed to Britain's The Sun newspaper.

“But when I found out George was 22, I thought that’s a game-changer. Then when I found out he likes older women, I thought what the hell, shut up. George Shelley you cheeky little scamp, you’ve no idea what you’ve done.”

But it looks like she has competition, with Ferne adding: “George is so cute. He’s so hot. I had a little Instagram stalk and when he went on X Factor he was quite young but now he’s like really fit.”
