The King of the I’m a Celebrity jungle has revealed the unique theme he wants when he weds Lara Carew-Jones.

The McFly boys are all grown up and settling down and it seems Dougie Poynter is keen to follow in the footsteps of bandmate Tom Fletcher, who proposed to girlfriend Giovanna Falcone last year.

24 year old Dougie didn’t have a great start to 2011 after ending up in rehab, but his fortunes turned around in the latter half of the year, as he was crowned King of the I’m a Celebrity jungle and spoke of the new love in his life – Lara Carew-Jones.

Dougie has made no secret of the fact he would love to marry Lara and he has even started thinking about the type of wedding he wants.

Lara – don’t let this man go on Don’t Tell the Bride.

Dougie told TV Buzz: “Lara and I are basically the same person in two different bodies.

“There’s a rumour we’re getting married and I’m not sure where that came from. Will I marry Lara? Definitely! I’d quite like a Star Wars themed wedding.” Lara’s a lucky lady…

Nuptials aside, Dougie is set to join bandmate, and Strictly Come Dancing 2011 winner, Harry Judd at tomorrow night’s National Television Awards.

I’m a Celebrity is nominated in the Reality Programme category, while Strictly bosses are hoping to take the Talent Show gong.

Cheeky Dougie added: “ Harry and I were joking about both doing reality shows and I pointed out that I had to eat penis, wheras all he had to do is dance around in sequins.” Fair point.

The National Television Awards air Wednesday January 25 from 7.30pm. Results and gossip from the awards will be available on

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! king Dougie Poynter says he’s ready to pluck a random bloke off the streets to be his best man when he ties the knot.

The jungle champion, who has vowed to marry his girlfriend Lara Carew-Jones, said his bandmate Tom Fletcher’s wedding to teen sweetheart Giovanna Falcone has left him with a dilemma.

‘Tom’s getting married in May and he’s having us three as his best men, so I don’t even know how I can top that,’ Poynter revealed on Fletcher’s decision to have all of McFly by his side on his big day.

Hoping to avoid some squabbles, the 24-year-old has conjured up a risky alternative.

‘I should have a novelty best man, like somebody I don’t really know just so nobody gets offended,’ he said.

‘I think I’ll go out in the street blindfolded and the first guy I touch can be my best man.’

Poynter said he ‘couldn’t be happier’ in the arms of 26-year-old Lara, although he can’t wait until McFly go back on tour in March.

‘It’s a theatre tour so you haven’t got to worry about getting blown up by pyros,’ he added.

  1. McFly bassist Dougie Poynter has found love again after splitting with The Saturdays’ Frankie Sandford last year.

    The 23-year-old I’m A Celebrity contestant’s new girlfriend Lara Carew-Jones is very special, according to his mum Sam Moody.

    ‘He said to me recently: “I’m so over Frankie,” and I think he just needed a year out on his own,’ she says.

    A devastated Dougie checked into rehab after his break-up with Frankie, 22, last November.

    But now he’s apparently happier than ever with Lara – despite only hooking up with her a week before entering the jungle.

    ‘How Lara came into his life was a complete fluke. It’s meant to be – she could be the one,’ reckons Sam.

    ‘He’s absolutely besotted. She’s a normal girl and that’s what he needs. She likes all the weird stuff he likes – she’s perfect.’
