Vernon Kay says wife Tess ‘jumped through the roof’ as he made I’m A Celeb final

I'm A Celeb star Vernon Kay says his wife Tess Daly 'jumped through the roof' as he made it to the final of the show.

The TV presenter, 46, made it to the final three on Friday before narrowly losing out to Giovanna Fletcher.

Vernon had an ­emotional reunion with Strictly ­presenter Tess and their girls Phoebe, 16, and Amber, 11, last night.

It was a chance for him to see how proud he had made them during his time on the ITV series.

They watched the show religiously and saw him win over his campmates with his warm persona. He also bravely tackled a series of horror trials.

He said: “Tess is so, so proud. She is just elated. She said that all three of them jumped through the roof when I got to the final. They were glued to the TV.

“That reassured me. I went in to make the girls proud and that reassured me that I’d done that.”

Now that they’re back together, Vernon is keen to work with Tess on a future project. It has been 13 years since the pair last teamed up for a prime-time show – on BBC singing ­contest Just The Two Of Us.

He said: “I love working with Tess. She is one of the most dedicated presenters I’ve ever worked with.

“If we were to work together it would be an absolute dream.”

Vernon also told how he could not begrudge Giovanna her win – praising her as a special person.

He said: “Giovanna is an amazing lady. When you talk to her about anything emotional or anything ­personal, she sits and listens."
