Rebel Wilson lets slip secret royal connection as fans fawn over transformation

Rebel Wilson appeared on Tuesday's The One Show on March 8 to discuss her role at the EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) which will air on BBC One at the weekend.

The 42-year-old bombshell wowed fans as she took to the stage wearing a fabulous black dress that highlighted her jaw dropping 5.5 stone weight loss.

It wasn't just her significant transformation that seemed to captivate attention, with Rebel also dropping a massive bombshell that she has a royal connection.

Host Lauren Laverne asked the Pitch Perfect actress: "We do hear Rebel that your jokes sometimes get the Royal seal of approval?"

She added: "They get a nod and wink before they make it into your final script, what's the story there."

Looking slightly bashful, Rebel smiled as she responded: "I do have a connection with a Royal Family member who I may text certain jokes to, to see if it's ok by them."

Rebel continued: "But they actually have a really great sense of humour, like people think because of their position, but they like to laugh as well so."

Interjecting, Lauren asked: "I'm assuming you're not going to reveal who they are?"

"I'm not going to reveal which family member it is," awkwardly laughed Rebel.

While the Cats star wasn't about to lift the lid on her connection on-air, she had previously been snapped on camera with The Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall at New Year.

Zara, 38, and her husband Mike, 41, brought in 2022 with an entire host of celebrity pals, including Rebel at Sydney harbour.

Rebel shared the images on her own Instagram platform, telling her 6.9million followers that celebrated the occasion with some "fun pals".

The movie star penned: "We crushed Sydney New Year's Eve!

"We're in the future now in 2020! What a fun gang to celebrate with and thanks to our gorgeous hostess Heloise for throwing an amazing bash with clearly the BEST views."

The One Show continues weekdays at 7pm on BBC One.
