Nick Knowles got a shock when he received a letter from home on Tuesday’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The TV presenter, 56, was thrilled to hear from his son TJ, 24, as the campmates were rewarded with correspondence from loved ones after completing a task.
The Vamps guitarist James McVey read Nick his letter from TJ, who is currently in Australia with his half-brother Charlie.
The letter informed Nick that his cover of Adele’s Make You Feel My Love had topped the iTunes charts while he’s been in the jungle, thanks to a campaign by DJ Chris Moyles.

The letter read: "I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how very proud I am of you, not only in terms of how you are doing in the camp, but most importantly how proud I am that you’re my dad.
"Just to let you know, you owe Chris Moyles a pint, as despite everything last week him and his radio team managed to get Make You Feel My Love to number one in the iTunes chart!
"Can’t wait to see you and hope the Rice and Beans aren’t getting too tedious."

A stunned Nick said later: "If it’s true it’s very, very lovely. It’s very difficult to believe, but if people are doing that, then thank you."
TJ is one of Nick’s four children, from his affair with Paula Beckett-Vass in the 1990s.
He also has a son Charlie, 24, and daughter Tuesday, 25, from his first marriage to Gillian and a son Eddie, four, with ex-wife Jessica Rose Moor.
