Josie Gibson gushes over her 'TV mum and dad' in heartfelt Instagram tribute

How touching

TV's Josie Gibson has paid tribute to her "proper TV mum and dad" in a sweet message on Instagram.

The realty star, 34, posted a photo of herself with This Morning's Eamonn Holmes and shared a message of thanks to the presenter and his co-host Ruth Langsford for being "so warm and so welcoming".

She captioned the pic, which showed Eamonn beaming with his arms around Josie: "I can not tell you how much I love @eamonnholmes and @ruthlangsford.

"They are so warm and so welcoming and I can not thank them enough lately.

"I will be sending some family honey up soon! You are like having a proper TV mum and dad

They are so warm and so welcoming and I can not thank them enough lately.

Thanks again This Morning for having me."

Josie served as a guest host on the programme yesterday (August 30) and got to meet Colette Zacca, the 'dancing granny' who went viral this week after a video of her enjoying herself at the Notting Hill Carnival spread online.

Colette, who has previously undergone a double hip replacement, showed Eamonn and Ruth how to twerk - and Josie was able to get involved too.

Josie rose to fame after winning series 11 of Big Brother in 2010.

In September last year, she welcomed her first child, Reggie. But the birth wasn't without its drama, as the tyke arrived one month early after Josie's waters broke during her baby shower.

She shared the first photos of the tot in an interview with OK! magazine in October, telling the publication: "Reggie was born 5lbs 1oz and dropped to 4lbs. I was so scared to touch him and crying all the time. I know he was in the best place, but it was so frightening.

"He was wired up to all these machines and one of the tubes came out and the monitor went flat and made a noise like his heart had stopped. I was shouting for the nurse, but a tube had just fallen out."

Speaking further, she said leaving the hospital was "the best feeling in the world" and praised the hospital staff who looked after her, adding: "The staff were so good.

"I can't thank them enough. He might not have been with us if they hadn't taken him to the ward when his blood sugar dropped."
