Forget Mark Wright, Dougie Poynter and Matt Willis have got a proper bromance going on!

Dougie Poynter and Mark Wright may have been best buddies in the jungle, but it's actually another I'm A Celebrity star who is closer to the McFly fittie's heart.

Former Busted babe Matt Willis and winner of I'm A Celebrity 2006 revealed to omg! in our exclusive interview that he and Dougie are close mates, so naturally talk turned to the singer.

"Dougie is a really close friend of mine and I was really chuffed for him to win I'm A Celebrity because he's the kind of guy that doesn't need to win," Matt told us.

"When he was thinking about going on the show I told him 'you're not a d**k Dougie so you're not going to come across like a d**k, you're a decent guy you and you'll come across like the decent guy you are!'"

And the male appreciation is mutual it seems as Dougie supported Matt on his first night starring in hit must-see musical WICKED.

The McFly singer took pride of place with his girlfriend Lara Carew-Jones in the audience and omg! (who were also there) found the loudest applause came from Mr Poynter.

But celebrity appearances aren't what makes Dougie tick as Matt revealed he doesn't need to be papped to be appreciated.

"Dougie doesn't need to live the celebrity life but I think a lot of other people embrace going to parties and appearing in magazines, when they come out of reality TV shows.

"He is a really well grounded guy, he's in a band, he's very happy in that band and they now have a sold out tour. So Dougie got what he wanted from I'm A Celebrity."

And by the looks of things Matt got what he wanted: a starring role in Wicked, gorgeous wife in the form of Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side presenter Emma Willis, and two beautiful boys.

Although we're not too sure about the advice he wants to pass on to his children…
"I really wish I'd been pushed more to practice guitar when I was a kid because I ended up being in a band and not a very good bass player.

"From my experience I'm probably going to say to my kids, 'No, you should practice, believe me when you're getting laid left right and centre when you're 18 you will thank me a lot little boy!"

Okay then!
