The  presenter took to her Instagram stories after the episode to share a cheeky snap showing her husband stripping off to use the castle shower.

Tess has thrown her support behind Vernon since he signed up for the gruelling three week series of I’m A Celebrity, which was relocated to Wales from Australia this year amid the coronavirus pandemic.

On Sunday, she wished him luck in the derelict castle by sharing a rare snap besides their daughters Phoebe, 16, and Amber, 11.

Taking to Instagram to share the black-and-white family photo, Tess could be seen smiling brightly with her daughters sat in the middle of her and Vernon. 

She wrote in the caption: ‘GOOD LUCK VERNON❤️ After not being able to see him for what feel like AGES me & the girls can’t wait to watch Vern on tonight’s first @I’mACelebrity and see how he fares in the Castle!

‘We love you SO much and we miss you TONS! Go #teamVernon #imaceleb All our love Tess Phoebe & Amber XXX’  

And she has once again sent her husband well-wishes after it was revealed that the public had voted for him to face the first Bushtucker eating trial tomorrow night.

Taking to her Instagram stories on Monday, she wrote: ‘Good luck for tomorrow! We’ll be cheering you on.’

The eating trial, called Frights of the Round Table, will see three celebrities sitting around a spinning table and forced to eat a selection of food choices not for the fainthearted.  

The presenter will be joined in the challenge alongside Jordan and Corrie legend Beverley Callard, 63, who both seemed horrified at the prospect of the stomach-churning task.

But Vernon seemed thrilled to have been picked for the gruesome trial, as he cracked a smile and cheered after Ant and Dec made the nail-bitting announcement.

In a preview of what is to come, Dec said: ‘Three celebrities are about to enjoy a feast fit for a bin.

And Ant added: ‘At the banquet that puts the evil in medieval’ while Dec said: ‘The only thing spinning more than the table will be their stomachs’.

The 2020 series, which kicked off with a bang on ITV on Sunday evening, is expected to last just 20 days – two shorter than normal.
