Leicestershire actor Owen Warner is now one of the favourites to win I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of here!.
Best known for his role as Romeo Nightingale in Hollyoaks, Owen may not be the only Warner brother people recognise.
Owen, 23, who is a "mummy's boy who falls in love quickly" according to Hollyoaks co-star, has two brothers, Jake who is a musician and Louie, a model and photographer.
Louie has been described as the “carbon copy” of the I’m A Celeb star, and became the face of Boohoo within three months of starting his modelling career. He has since appeared on London billboards and the side of buses.
The Leicestershire-born heartthrob was discovered on Instagram, currently boasting over 30,000 followers, and prior to modelling worked at the Apple Store in Manchester’s Arndale Centre.
He was originally spotted by a different agency whilst working at a catering company but initially turned the opportunity down.
"An agent said I should do modelling. I had no idea about the industry and I couldn't get to London so I ignored it. I was too young," said Louie.
First working with student photographers to help build their portfolios, Louie quickly built a following on Instagram.
"I started uploading to Instagram, not with an intention of doing anything really – I never thought of it that seriously," he explained.
Within a week of signing with Manchester’s Nemesis agency, he had castings with JD Sports and Foot Asylum and has since modelled for Puma and other household name brands.
Louie recently leapt to his brother’s defence on Lorraine, stating his brother is not stupid.
"I've always said, he does have his ditzy moments I'm not going to lie, but he isn't stupid at all, he's very switched on," Louie said.
"His brain just works in a different way and so it might come across as a bit stupid but when you think about it, to be fair, it makes some sense."
This comes after a hilarious incident where Owen was told campmate Scarlette Douglas was from A Place in the Sun. He responded, "Oh yeah, whereabouts?".
Now Owen is in the running to be crowned the ITV show’s King of the Jungle, Louie told Good Morning Britain, “I can’t begin to imagine what’s going through his mind right now.”
“He went in there and we all didn’t know what to expect. We knew lots of people in there, but we weren’t sure – Owen’s not been in Hollyoaks long – so we weren’t really sure who would know who he was.”
He continued: “The fact that he’s still in there is a true testament to who he is as a person. He’s been able to capture the audience.
“I think he’s going to be really touched and it’s going to give him a lot of confidence. To finally believe how much of a good person he is, like we tell him day to day."
