Dr Chris Brown has shared a tribute to Shane Warne following his sudden death at age 52 on Friday.

On Tuesday, the veterinarian, 43, shared some memories of the cricketer during his time starring on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Australia, which Chris co-hosts alongside Julia Morris. 

‘Having Shane on was a true privilege and a treat,’ Chris told Hit Network’s Jimmy & Nath.

‘Everyday there was a different story and they were each more ridiculous than the last,’ he added.

Chris continued: ‘Probably what I found most impressive about Warnie was honestly his mind. He was so competitive and once you set him a challenge, he would give you this cheeky grin and go into this zone where he was determined to do it.’

The I’m a Celebrity host went on to describe Warne as an ‘incredible person’.

‘He was really an incredible person. Very easy to get along with and likeable guy. You couldn’t help but like him and appreciate his character,’ he said.

Warne tragically died on Friday at the age of 52 while on holiday with his friends in Koh Samui, Thailand. He died from ‘natural causes’, an autopsy concluded.

Four friends who were staying with Shane battled to save his life for 20 minutes after he was found unconscious in a villa in their Koh Samui resort.

Thai police said that he was staying in the villa with four friends, and when one of the group tried to wake Shane for food at around 5pm local time he was found to be unresponsive.

Shane’s manager separately confirmed his death, saying that the father-of-three could not be revived.

Warne became a global star in 1993 by bowling out Mike Gatting with the so-called ‘Ball of the Century’ – his first ball in Ashes cricket.

He went on to get 708 test wickets, tormenting teams all over the world, especially Australia’s great rival England.

Warne’s family will hold a private funeral to say goodbye before a state service is held in front of up to 100,000 people at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Close friends and family of the late cricketer will gather in Melbourne after Warne’s body is returned to Australia from Thailand.

Plans are still being finalised for a public memorial due to be held later this month.
