Owen asked if Mike’s wife was ‘Australian’

Zara was extremely close to her grandmother the Queen before her passing in September.

Speaking inside main camp, Mike told Babatúndé and Owen about meeting his wife of 11 years. 

Mike explained: “I was at the World Cup, she was out watching.

“I got dropped from the semi-final. I was p****d off and so I went for a beer with another guy who got dropped and a guy who was over [in Sydney].

“They’d met her before and they introduced us and then got chatting.”

Owen asked: “Is she Australian?”

Mike stared at Owen before simply saying: “No.”

Fans were stunned at what they had just witnessed and took to Twitter to share their amusement.

One tweeted: “Did Owen just ask Mike Tindall if his wife’s Australian?!  Cannot cope with this lad.”

Another mused: “Owen Warner asking if Mike Tindall’s wife is Australian and calling her ‘Lara’ is why this country’s going backwards.”

While someone else wrote: “I love how owen is (probably unintentionally) humbling all the celebs. first off he asks boy george who he is and now he asked mike tindall if his wife is australian.”

Continuing with his questioning, Owen asked Mike during their chat: “So if you never got dropped you never would have met her?”

Mike said: “Best decision of Clive Woodward’s life.” 

Owen added: “Thank god he dropped you.” 

Speaking about his first date, Mike added: “First actual date, just went out for lunch locally.

“And ended up being quite a boozy one.

“Then we figured out that we both quite like getting smashed. It was a good start.” 

Babatúndé asked Mike: “How many years has it been?”

Mike replied: “18 years.”

Owen joked: “My longest relationship was 6 months!” 

Mike said: “You are only 23 though.”
