Caitlyn opened up about her family relationships to fellow contestants Kate Garraway, Adele Roberts, Nadine Coyle and Jaqueline Jossa.

And Caitlyn, who used to be Olympic-winning athlete Bruce Jenner before she transitioned in 2015, said: "Bruce raised them and Caitlyn is enjoying their life with them."

Caitlyn, star of reality shows I Am Cait and The Keeping Up With The Kardashians, has six children and a whopping 19 grandchildren.

She's father to Burt and Cassandra from Bruce's first marriage to Chrystie, and two sons from Bruce's second marriage to Linda Thompson.
