I’m A Celebrity got very emotional tonight when the campmates got their letters from home.
The Vamps guitarist James McVey, The Chase’s Anne Hegerty and DIY SOS host Nick Knowles managed to secure eight out of the eleven car packages for camp.
Most of the contestants burst into tears as they heard precious messages from their loved ones.
But confused viewers were quick to point out that they had barely been in the jungle for a week.
Usually the letters from home are given to the campmates towards the end of the series when they have been away from home for ages.
Sair was in floods of tears
Fleur struggled to hold it together
- I’m A Celebrity: Noel Edmonds massages Harry Redknapp’s leg – in just his PANTS
Emperor Noel Edmonds and his Advisor Harry Redknapp had to decide who would get their package.
Being Emperor meant Noel was guaranteed a parcel, while Harry offered to sacrifice himself and not have one.
They decided that James and Nick would be the unlucky pair also not receiving news from home.
Harry explained to Nick and James that he and Emperor Noel felt they were the strongest in camp and could cope without a care package.
Both James and Nick were teary but understood why the decision was made.
Nick didn’t get a letter but still got emotional
James was also in tears because he missed out
Inbetweeners star Emily Atack got teary when singer Fleur East read out a letter from her sister and then opened her package to find her favourite crisps.
Soap actress Rita Simons read Malique Thompson-Dwyer’s letter from his Mum, who also got teary but perked up when he found he’d got his favourite chocolate.
Anne was next and John Barrowman read a letter from her family and she was surprised to get her favourite crisps.
Fleur got a message from her sister
Coronation Street’s Sair Khan started to cry before Rita had even had chance to read her letter from her boyfriend Simon.
John’s letter from his husband Scott was read by Anne, while Emily read Fleur’s letter from her sister and she also started to cry.
James read Rita’s letter from her daughters and her treat was chocolate.
Anne read John’s letter from his husband
Sair found it all a bit too much
There was one pretty hilarious moment amid all the tears.
Harry held Emperor Noel’s letter, paused, then said: "I haven’t got my reading glasses."
Luckily he was given Nick’s glasses so her could read Noel’s letter from his wife Liz.
She ended the letter with the words ‘love is a friendship set on fire and you are my eternal flame’, leaving Noel in tears.
Advisor Harry, making up the final part of the letter, joked: “And please share your parcel with Harry.”
Emperor Noel got a bit teary
I’m A Celebrity viewers took to Twitter to point out that they had barely been away from home.
One viewer said: "Hang on a Second??? Care packages?? They’ve only been in the jungle 6 days. The contestants in big brother didn’t get their letters until the last week"
Another added: "Letters from home already?! Surely not??"
A third agreed: "Care packages after being away from home. For 5 days."
