She revealed on Lorraine recently that his daughters, Phoebe and Amber, are just as excited.

Tess said: “Well, they love it. Phoebe, our sixteen-year-old, watches it every night with me. Amber, who is 11, isn’t allowed to stay up that late because obviously it is school nights a lot of the time.

“On a Friday night she is allowed to, so she did see it when he said ‘hello’. I looked at their faces and they just lit up.”

“They miss him, they haven’t seen him for four and a half weeks now because they were isolating for two weeks before going in,” added the star.

Who left I’m A Celebrity last night?

I’m A Celebrity viewers were left divided when Shane Richie was voted off the show.

The soap actor and former Daz advert man, 56, made it to the final four.

But last night was the end of the road for the star, who appeared to be gutted that he was leaving I’m A Celeb.

After completing the legendary Cyclone challenge, his time was up.

He went on to tell Ant & Dec that he hoped “Mummy G” (Giovanna Fletcher) would bag the crown.
