Some call it man love. Others call it bromance. Whatever its name, it's blossoming right now in the jungle between Eric and Brian.
"Eric Bristow and I - separated at birth, ladies and gentleman!" Brian announced, beaming, in the Bush Telegraph - the jungle equivalent of shouting from the rooftops.
"'Cos Eric said, I'm dad in this camp, and I was dad in the other camp..." he gushed, explaining their meeting when the two camps merged, full of the first flush of romance.
"So now we're like the elder statesmen, chipping in now and again with our words of wisdom..." he summarised.
And so they are. Sitting side by side, enjoying a Bushtucker cuppa from a tin can, they pondered Hugo lifting weights and the cons of private education.
Keep it up, you two. We do love a bromance!
