And Mike Tindall, 44, couldn’t help but plug in the swimsuit during an awkward interview with his wife Zara on Friday’s Sunrise.

Mike Tindall joked that he was going to “get the parakeet smugglers out” while visiting Adelaide in a very awkward interview on Sunrise on Friday (pictured with his wife Zara and Mike Beretta from Sunrise)
When asked by Sunrise’s Mark Beretta what the couple will be doing during their stay, Zara said they hoped to enjoy a wine tasting, before Mike chirps in and says ‘we’re going to get the Budgy Smugglers out today’ which led to laughter from the whole trio.
Mike launched his own line of tight swim shorts after his appearance on I’m A Celebrity UK.
While in the jungle, he was accused of wearing his wife’s bikini bottoms while taking a dip in the creek.
His new range comes with cheeky slogans including ‘nibble my nuts’ and ‘Vanilla Mike’, with all proceeds donated to charity.
Mike shared a photo of the limited edition range on his Twitter page on Tuesday after revealing that his team had been working on it while he was at camp.

The pair have often spoken of their fondness for Australia as the country is close to their hearts.
They met in Sydney’s bar in 2003 as Mike was ‘drowning his sorrows’ after being dropped from England’s World Cup squad and Zara on a gap year.
Talking about their plans for this trip on Friday, the pair revealed they were excited to see Adelaide for the first time.
“We only came in yesterday, so haven’t explored yet,” Mike said.
‘Rugby tours never came here before. Last year they brought in the Wallabies here.
“It’s a great wine region, so I’m sure we’ll be tasting a lot.”

Early January is gloomy here [in their home of Gloucestershire in England] so it’s nice to be able to go and have a little sun,” she said.
“I like the Australian lifestyle and the opportunity to get up early, go to the beach – especially for the kids,” Mike told the magazine.
The couple, who are neither royals nor titles, keep a relatively low profile despite their stature as professional sportsmen at the top of their relative fields (pictured on Surfers Paradise in 2018)
