Ah, celebrities. Underneath all the glamour, the award ceremonies, and the international adoration and acclaim, they're really just like us. By which we mean, they're prone to making slightly stupid decisions and facing embarrassing consequences of their own making. And the potential for a cringe-inducing situation only increases when a celebrity is a part of a couple.
Such was a reality faced by Channing Tatum this week. The popular actor sat down for a casual evening with his British musician girlfriend, Jessie J. In a surprisingly cute turn of events, the pair were actually playing board games together - so at least we know romance isn't dead! Wanting to spice things up a little, the pair decided to up the stakes on their game. It's clear that Jessie is no slouch when it comes to Jenga, though, as it was Tatum who ended up losing - with hilarious (and cringeworthy) consequences.

He first rose to fame in 2006's Step Up.After the popular dance movie, he became known for starring as the romantic lead in a range of slightly sappy films, including 2010's Dear John.
Tatum is also the star of the G.I. Joe franchise.He's played Duke in both The Rise Of The Cobra and Retaliation. Though the films were critically panned, they were hugely commercially successful.
The actor also has serious comedy chops.Tatum starred alongside Jonah Hill in action comedy films 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street, for which he received critical praise.
Of course, there's one role that he's best known for.Tatum is the star of both Magic Mike and the sequel, Magic Mike XXL - the latter of which he also produced. He claimed to have drawn inspiration for the role from his own time working as a stripper.
Tatum also has a reputation of being a generally nice guy.He's funny, kind-hearted and incredibly down to earth - and is never afraid to laugh at himself.
Who could forget this iconic performance?His portrayal of Beyonce on Lip Sync Battle will likely go down in the show's history. Tatum absolutely nailed it.
Oh, and did we forget to mention?Tatum is pretty easy on the eye, too. In fact, he probably makes one of the most universal appearances on any celebrity crush list.
It seems that there's nothing Tatum can't do.

And it seems that the couple are doing just great.Based on this latest story, that is! It all started with the pair settling down for a game night - which is already very cute of them.
Their game of choice?The ever-frustrating (though not necessarily particularly strategic) Jenga, of course!
The two decided to spice things up a little.The way that they chose to do this? By adding another layer of interest to their game, in the form of a cheeky bet. The winner would get to post any photo of their choosing on the loser's social media accounts.
And as to who won?
People were shocked.
