Josie Gibson feels "very guilty" for leaving her son while she competes on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!'

The 38-year-old presenter has five-year-old son Reggie from a previous relationship but has had to leave him for up to three weeks to compete on ITV1's jungle reality survival show in Australia and broke down on Friday's (01.12.23) episode over her decision.

The 'This Morning' host was overheard crying by former 'EastEnders' actress Danielle Harold, who immediately went to see what was wrong.

She said: " I just miss my little boy. I shouldn’t have ever left him this long."

Danielle replied: "100% you should, you’re showing him that you’re a strong mum, strong woman. So proud of you babe" and later hailed the former 'Big Brother' winner as the "best mum" as she tried to comfort her.

In the Bush Telegraph, Josie admitted: "Just had a little wobble. You just feel very guilty. I’ll never leave him this long again, ever.”

Elsewhere Tony Bellew, Nick Pickard. Nella Rose, Sam Thompson, and Nigel Farage were the next five campmates to face a Bushtucker Trial, and the viewing public had been voting to decide which critters they would be faced with throughout the task.

Both 'Hollyoaks' actor Nick and boxer Tony had to contend with snakes whilst YouTube star Nella was joined by cockroaches, 'Made in Chelsea' star Sam had to face toads and politician Nigel had to face rats, all attempting to find the correct key from a random bunch to unlock two stars each.

Nick, Sam and Tony all got their two stars and waited for the time to count down, whilst Nella quit the task almost immediately by crying "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here" and Nigel failed to unlock any stars within the 10-minute time limit.

In total, the gang returned to camp with six stars, which meant six meals for camp.

He quipped: "It’s nice to know what the British public think of me by sending in rats.”

At the end of the episode, it was revealed that the public had voted for Tony to face the Eaten Alive trial in tomorrow night's episode.

'I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!' continues Saturday at 9.25pm on Virgin Media One and Virgin Media Player
