Holly Willoughby struggled to hold back tears as she watched the I’m A Celeb campmates reunite with their families.

She watched the campmates with their families and loved ones, before turning to her co-host Dec Donnelly and screeching: "Oh god, that was just so amazing."

Dec offered her a hug, but she was wiping away full tears from her face, saying: "That bit where Harry saw Sandra was one of the best bits of television I’ve ever seen.”

But her co-host was a bit confused, saying: "That’s the second time she’s watched that scene.”

She said she thought it was very hard for the campmates to say goodbye to their loved ones, before Dec jumped in with a joke, replying: "I know, I know it must be hard for the celebrities to say goodbye.

After this, John’s husband Scott sat in Croc Creek and waited for John to walk back into camp.

He said: “In the 25 years we’ve been together, this is the longest we’ve not spoken. I speak to him every day, apart from a couple of minor rows now and again."

John walked down into camp and saw Scott, he gasped and started to cry and hugged him, saying: "I felt so happy to see him, it was an overwhelming rush of emotion."

Then it was James, as he cried and was shocked when his girlfriend Kirstie sat waiting for him.

She commented on how thin he looked, before telling her how proud their family are.

James then asked a rather odd question, asking: "Having a letter was enough to get me to the end and now this. What’s happening with Brexit?”
