Fans of I’m A Celebrity were emotional after watching Owen Warner and Seann Walsh talk about their mental health and past mistakes on Saturday night’s episode.
The pair went to the pool to wash off after getting bugs and gunk on them during the Partners in Grime Bushtucker Trial.
But the conversation turned to how the pair were doing in the jungle so far, and Seann asked Owen if he’d found the time difficult.

The Hollyoaks actor, 23, admitted he had done it but was feeling better – and turned the question back on the comedian.
“Owen, do you find this difficult? The jungle adventure?’ Sean asked, and Owen said, “I was, but not so much now. Why are you Sean?’
Sean said, “For me, there’s quite a lot of anxiety during the day. If I don’t know what’s coming, I don’t like it. I’m really panicking.’
Owen asked, “Is that always?” and Seann replied, “Oh god. That’s why I pay a woman a weekly fee to help me!’

The actor agreed that it was good to talk to a professional about his feelings: “It’s okay, do therapy.
“As I always say to my buddies, I highly recommend it, even if you think you’re sane.” Like it’s so good to sit with someone, vent. Really helps you put your mind together. And find out what’s going on and why it’s happening.’
Owen later said in the Bush Telegraph, “There’s something about being here that really taught me that it’s like wearing your heart on your sleeve, because someone probably feels the same way.

Speaking: Sean also referred to his ‘horrific’ experience following the Strictly Come Dancing cheating scandal
“And that’s something I’ll carry with me forever. Now I usually keep my feelings close to my chest, but if you talk about them most of the time, someone can identify with you.”
Sean then referred to his “horrific” experience following the Strictly Come Dancing cheating scandal.
When the comedian joined the series with professional partner Katya Jones in 2018, the pair were caught kissing outside a pub – but Seann was in a long-term relationship – and Katya was married to fellow pro dancer Neil Jones.
Both of their relationships subsequently ended.
Touched: Fans shared their emotion during the heartfelt conversation between the two men on Saturday night’s episode
“Look, I had such a horrifying experience the last time I did something like this and when I came back… This is absolutely amazing, but it brought that back.”
Owen supported him: “Which is good, now you have a second chance to handle everything. It’s like you’re in a game, and like you die and go back to the first level, it’s shit. But I know how to do those levels. ‘
Speaking to the Bush Telegraph, Sean said, “He’s such a wise young man and he’s really articulate and I think he’s really emotionally intelligent.”
“Anyone looking at someone’s past, that’s on them,” Owen added.

One user wrote, “That was such a lovely conversation. Seann talks about his fear.
“He and Owen talk about therapy and encourage people to get it, especially men who talk about it.
Finally someone who recognizes how wise and emotionally intelligent Owen is. Just awesome.’
Another said next to a GIF of The Office’s Michael Scott with tears in his eyes, “I’m watching Seann and Owen advocate for therapy and speak about your mental health.
“It’s SO important, especially for men to know they can open up and ask for help.”
Similarly, another wrote, “Great conversation between these 2, Owen is a great camp mate.”
