Ash Williams’ debut on ‘I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!’ got off to an amusingly awkward start on Sunday night when he admitted to ‘The Bachelor’ star Abbie Chatfield he once slipped into her Instagram DMs but was left on ‘seen’. 

And this isn’t the first time Ash has been very open about his romantic life. 

The TV and radio personality admitted back in April last year that he once went on a double date with Australia’s federal treasurer, Josh Frydenberg.

'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' contestant Ash Williams Australian Treasurer Josh Frydenberg arrives to address media during a press conference in the Blue Room at Parliament House on December 08, 2020 in Canberra, Australia. 

“I had dinner with Frydenberg. We did a double date,” Ash told 2Day FM’s Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes and Ed Kavalee

“How’s this? We had to wait 60 minutes for our meal – this is a while ago – and Frydsy wasn’t happy so he went and spoke to the chef and we got free dinner,” he revealed. “He’s a great bloke.”

While the treasurer didn’t immediately recall such an encounter during a live interview, he later called Hughesy and Ed back to confirm the double date actually did happen. 

“I dialled my wife just to check the veracity of that story and it turns out, about a decade ago, when I had a head full of hair and a few less holes on the belt buckle, I was having dinner with that bloke Ash,” said Frydenberg. 

The politician explained he and his wife Amie were joined for dinner by a woman named Kerry who brought Ash along, and also confirmed they got the meals “at a bargain price” on the night.

Comedian Ash was one of nine famous faces who made their debut on ‘I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!’ on Sunday night, alongside Abbie Chatfield, Grant Denyer, Jack Vidgen, Jess Eva, Mel Buttle, Paulini Curuenavuli, Toni Pearen and Travis Varcoe. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the show was pre-recorded over four weeks in Australia instead of being filmed live in the usual South African jungle. 

The celebrities will live on a diet of rice and beans and compete in physically demanding challenges in a bid to win $100,000 for their chosen charity.
