The pair were both chatting about life back home in Greater Manchester around the campfire, and quickly worked out that they had a few things in common.
After establishing that Shaun lives in Salford and Andy telling him he grew up in Clifton, they both discovered they went to the same primary school, St Mark’s.
And then as they kept chatting, it emerged that they both also went to the same secondary school too.
Andy said: “The mad thing is, we live not far from each other, and the first time we’ve met is in the jungle.”
The video shared on TikTok has already pulled in millions of views, with comments flooding in from fellow proud Salfordians.
They both got very excited, and people said it was like watching ‘two dads chit chatting down the pool’.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Watching Shaun and Andy talking on i’m a celeb is like watching my last 2 brain cells bobble around in my head lmao i love them
Another wrote: “I’m fully here for a Shaun and Andy bromance.”
Someone else said: “I can see this becoming a really good Bromance.”

Coronation Street legend Julie Goodyear diagnosed with dementia
Coronation Street legend Julie Goodyear, who famously played the iconic character Bet Lynch for over 25 years, has sadly been diagnosed with dementia.
Issuing a statement via ITV, her husband Scott Brand confirmed that they had been given the “heartbreaking diagnosis” this week.
Goodyear, 81, played the legendary Rovers Return pub landlord for over two decades across two different spells on the show, starting in 1966 before leaving the show for good in 1995.
Brand told the outlet on Wednesday: “Unfortunately, Julie has been suffering forgetfulness for some time and we have been seeking medical advice and assistance, but we now know that there is no hope of a reversal in the situation – and that her condition will get progressively, and perhaps speedily, worse.”
He went on to say that he and Goodyear “have taken the decision to publicly announce the diagnosis as Julie still loves visiting friends and eating out”, noting that she inevitably gets recognised “and fans love to meet her – and she them – but she can get confused particularly if she is tired” and adding they “hope people will understand.”
The Manc soap star and household name is from Heywood in Rochdale and retired from acting in 2003 after making her final special appearance on the Coronation Street spin-off, After Hours.
