Emotions ran high in the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle yesterday as the final five contestants were REUNITED with their family members.

The campmates have already heard from their nearest and dearest this week after bosses delivered letters from home.


However, they got an even bigger surprise yesterday when they were led to different areas of the Australian bush - and came face-to-face with their loved ones for the first time in three weeks.

First, Harry Redknapp encountered his beloved wife Sandra sitting on a log in Snake Rock.

The pair hugged each other tight, with Harry saying: "It’s like being in prison and you’ve given me a prison visit.

"I’m not going to let you go, you’re not going anywhere."

"It's not long now," she assured him. "I got a bit sad the other day."

Harry couldn't help but get tearful. "It's not like me, I don’t normally cry, I’m pretty old school," he sniffed.


"It’s funny, 54 years and we just don’t want to be apart. I love you so much."

Meanwhile, Fleur East discovered her sister Keshia waiting on a bench at a random clearing.

"I’m overwhelmed with joy, my heart is bursting," said the 'Sax' singer. "I don’t know how I’ve been doing it, tunnel vision, just trying to get through.

"I can’t believe you’re here, I miss you so much. How is everybody?"

"Mum and Dad are so happy for you, we’re so happy. Mum can’t even watch some of the trials, she’s such a wuss," Keshia told her.

"No one can understand where you’re getting all your strength from. You’ve fully turned into a Jungle warrior!"

John Barrowman returned to camp from his random trip - only to find his husband Scott waiting for him.

The couple embraced, and John got Scott to sniff his top to demonstrate exactly how much he was stinking.


Scott then told him how his mum had held a koala bear while visiting a local zoo. "Did you tell her they have chlamydia?!" John laughed.

"I felt so happy to see him, it was an overwhelming rush of emotion," the Torchwood star reacted. "It was the most amazing surprise, the icing on the cake."

At a separate jungle clearing, James McVey found his girlfriend, model Kirstie Brittain.

"You’re so thin, your hair looks good though," she smiled. "Everyone’s so proud of you, I can’t tell you how much support you’ve got.

"You're so sensitive, you’ve cried more in here than our entire relationship!"

"Having a letter was enough to get me to the end and now this," The Vamps star smiled.

Finally, Emily Atack discovered her mum, singer and actress Kate Robbins, with the pair sharing a tearful hug.

"Everyone’s been laughing at your impressions and dancing," Kate revealed. "I never realised you were such a bad dancer!"


Referring to Emily joking about marrying Jamie Redknapp, Kate even teased her by asking: "Would you like Harry as a father-in-law?"

"I would! And I’d make a great daughter-in-law," the Inbetweeners star laughed.

"I genuinely love them all, but as much as they become family, they’re not your real family. There are moments I just want to talk with you."

"We’re so proud of you," Kate smiled.

Before the celebs had to bid farewell to their family, they all came together in Croc Creek to meet each other.


The group taught Sandra how to do the floss, with Harry joining in.

I'm A Celebrity 2018 continues tomorrow at the slightly later time of 9.10pm on ITV, with the grand final on Sunday at 9.00pm.
